Heading for a century!!

Soon after opening This'n'That I discovered the joys of the 'Vistaprint' online printing services and have never looked back. I've lost count of how many different business cards, tags and giveaway postcard designs have been created in those years.

Some have been reprinted again and again whilst others were one batch wonders!

I've been trying to set aside a few spares from each batch since I began blogging with the intention of using them as part of a giveaway. Apologies to those of you who may recall my plan to do that last Spring.

However, this time I am resolute ... once I get to 100 followers (almost there) .. I will sort out a giveaway which will include some of these cards.

I realise that I may be wrong in flattering myself that folks want them but I seem to get regular customers in the shop asking for whichever is the latest or sometimes requesting 'back issues' to fill their collections.

Maybe I should be planning a folder like those partwork magazines where you had to collect all 96 editions to get a free file?! Somehow I don't think I'll reach such heady numbers:)

The picture above (used for the Nostalgic Mix 2 invitation cards) is from an early 1950's bus timetable which I scanned and changed the colours from red, white and blue to my favourite turquoise.
