A few prints in, I can already tell this is a very worthy investment into my photography.

Yes, a normal printer can also print 4 x 6 photos but the ease and quality of this little dedicated printer is hard to beat!

One of those days where I wonder why I’m in my profession if I’m honest (cause I’m good at it and it pays the bills is the answer).

But on the plus side, I have some new photography items to distract me at least temporarily.

In addition to getting the Polaroid out again, I am looking forward to printing more photos.

Genuine but naive question: do beautiful printers exist?

I don’t mean “can you find something attractive in common printers?” because you probably can but I don’t care to try.

I mean: are there any printers that’ve been subject to the same aesthetic care as, say, the iMac?

(I don’t care if you hate the iMac. Use your own example, then.)

And is there anyone in #Berlin, who'd do that for me?
The frame below is ideal for me, however refitting it with new lenses isn't feasible, as the frame is cheap and probably contains chemical softeners, which evaporate over time, leading to the lenses falling out at some point.

Four different opticians here couldn't help find the same or even just a very similar frame, just to mention that.

When I created this #artjournal to digest the terrible images and news of a #wildfire, I had no idea how much the condition could become the new "normality" in so many countries. #Rust and hammer printing, and wild stitches. #wildfires #art #artistsOfMastodon #Rustprint #hammerPrint #ecodyeing #TatakiZome #WildStitching #embroidery #mixedmedia #printing

Two pages: the accidental rust printing in reddish brown on white paper looks like a landscape with a brown sun. Abstract black stitches with paper thread evoke plant skeletons.
Another 2 pages, the backside of photo 1. The wild stitches look different on their backside and become integrated into a new image. The more filigree plant structure at the right is made by hammer printing a grass and lining with black paper thread.
2 pages with spare rust print. On the left, a tree structure is cut out as a hole. It is covered with dyed gauze and offers a view of the landscape below. On the right, three overlapping tree structures: the back of black paper embroidery, green thread structures and the hammer print of common bent grass.
Macro of the gauze. Behind, is the reddish-brown rust print of the page below.

And if you enjoy this sort of thing, you might also like this 1918 issue of "The American Printer", which contains an introduction to the principle that eventually led to the German DIN, now International, paper sizes (A4, etc.): the HYPOTENUSE OBLONG.

https://books.google.com/books?id=LEU1TWkaiOIC

#paper #printing #publicdomain #books #oldbooks

An oblong having the proportion of length to width which gives two oblongs of the same proportion when divided is called by printers and binders the Hypotenuse Oblong. This is the only possible rectangle which can be infinitely halved or doubled without changing its proportion of length to width It gets its name from the convenient method of finding the proper proportion. Given the short side we simply draw a perpendicular of the same length at one end making two equal sides of a right angle triangle Then the diagonal line from corner to corner which is the hypotenuse will give the exact length of the oblong Conversely if we have the length and wish to determine the proper width we simply start with half of this length for a base and proceed in the same manner and the hypotenuse obtained will give the exact width.

I'd always thought that the word "bond" in reference to paper (as in "20lb bond") referred to something about the fibers being 'bonded' together somehow.

Apparently—at least according to this fun 1922 commercial reference book I just lost an hour to—that's not the case. It's called that because it was originally made for printing financial bonds and certificates on a printing press.

https://books.google.com/books?id=XUI9AQAAMAAJ&pg=PA107&source=gbs_toc_r&cad=2#v=onepage&q&f=false

#paper #trivia #letterpress #printing #books #publicdomain

THE name "Bond Paper" was first applied to paper designed for a single specific use; namely, for engraved bonds and certificates.

At present the term "Bond Papers" covers a wide range, some of which
 possess few of the characteristics of the original Bond. These characteristics were based on a long-fibered, high-grade rag stock, so treated as to obtain the maximum strength and hardness, with little or no attention to sheet formation. Today, however, although bond papers are characterized by a certain degree of rattle, translucency and hardness and a high ratio of strength to weight with
good folding qualities, their content ranges from a permanent all-rag
stock to one of temporary wood pulp.

I'm very suspicious that there is something seriously wrong with my art printer. I turned it on for the first time since early April. I then sent a job to make a print of a recently sold maze.

There were no error messages.

It ruined no expensive paper.

It didn't dump all its ink into the waste tank.

It just worked.

This is unprecedented behavior and it makes me very uncomfortable.

Here's one of my big tech problems lately hindering my creativity..

Been thinking of setting up a virtual machine for my mug art prints, because i am in a situation where I don't want to use gimp to use my other printer because I don't want to risk messing up my print settings...
... which I made a backup of but I can't actively load, or load via command line to print stuff
... which seem to remember certain things in memory and one little change can cause me to have several misprints

So the plan is to set up a VM with GIMP, call GIMP,
use a macro to click through the print dialog to print stuff via batch mode.. like suggested in this post from 2014, linking a post to 2009 who was having the same issue:

#art #design #print #printing #printMaking #paper

A relief print of a telephone/power pole with wires.

Now I can include directly in the ZPL2 string how many copies of the label the printer should print. So I only have to transfer the data once and the printer itself just repeats. This is now so fast that I have to sit there and fold the printed labels. Took just 20min to print 800 labels!!! #manufacturing #printing #retro #production

Zebra 110xiIII thermal transfer printer printing labels at the set 2”/s speed without pauses!

So I had no choice but to learn ZPL2 ... the native language of Zebra printers. Fortunately there is a quite decent python library for it, making the assembly of the ZPL2 strings easier. #manufacturing #printing #retro #production #python #programming

simple-zpl2 python code

So I got these cool Zebra thermal transfer printer. And I have to print thousands of labels… first I just designed a pdf or he label and used the Cups driver to print… it was quite slow as Cups sends the whole print one at a time 🤦‍♂️ #manufacturing #printing #retro #production

@mhoye Two I've had recent experience of:

TPH very good and efficient, but not the cheapest: https://www.tph.ca/

UTposter cheap and the final product was of decent quality, but customer service very unresponsive: https://www.utposter.com/

Hope that helps. 😀

I wanted to do some cutting practice before starting the next big print project so I took inspiration from @welshpixie.

I recently built a printing press from a DIY kit make by Provision Press. It's a pretty easy build and comes in at half the price of a traditional press of its size...

The plans are open source, so you can build your own, or buy the kit from them and help support what they are doing.

Spent way too much money on Luster photo paper in 13x19” but it was so worth it. So beautiful. Get your own work printed at some point.

Lots of anti-AI Art people keep saying AI art is blurry and garbage. So surely it wouldn't hold up to printing POSTERS, right?! Right? https://youtu.be/ol96mkmietE
