I have a new fleet and I am so happy with it!
My first boats - Rite de Passage - were sold out (yay, all 7500 sets!) and I decided to give my initial idea/design of the floating light boats again a try...
I once dreamed of white boats, with a print in a rare kind of 'watermark' ink, that you can only see through when the candle inside is lit. Well, that ink is so rare it doesn't even exist, except in my own mind ;-).
So I had to find a die cut alternative. The first 5 die cuts that I designed were refused by the cutting company: too complicated, the machines wouldn't survive it! Laser cutting was out of the question: the boats would become far too expensive for my consumers!
I must say, it was a struggle finding a balance between estethics, cost price and also doabilty for the people who were going to buy them. But I managed to 'kill my darlings' and accepted to work with the given limits and impossibilities.
For that and for the result I feel proud! So here is: REJSE!
