So, apparently opening a sticker/planner shop is a bit more difficult than I anticipated. I was expecting bumps along the way, and had a lot of contingency plans set in place. For example, I've set up a deadline of a month to get everything in order before I actually open the shop, so I have content and a good amount of stocked items.
Unfortunately, this came to a speedy halt yesterday when my printer decided to start printing uneven lines so my designs now look choppy. 😞 After a couple of hours of trying to figure things out, including troubleshooting and relentless google searches... I've concluded my little Pixma printer of four years has now become obsolete. Well, at least when it comes to sticker designs. It seems to still work for printing regular documents.
Sooooo... I bought a new printer today. Good news is, it's a Canon professional photo printer. 😀
Bad news is, it'll be in stock on October 16th (originally October 26th), so that sets me back another two weeks at the least.
Ultimately, I think I'm going to have to set my shop opening deadline for November at this rate, which means I'll miss Halloween. But, that means plenty of time to prepare a potential Black Friday sale and start working on goodies for Christmas!
I'll update this blog over the course of the next few weeks to keep you guys in the loop.
Wish me luck!
