When I’m working on a print, I always mix a custom ink color (unless I’m using black) for the print. When I’m done printing, there is always a little bit of ink left on the plate. It’s not enough to make another large print out of, but it’s enough to make a handful of little prints out of.
That little bit of leftover ink inspired me. Instead of watching it wash down the drain, I could create little mini-prints to include with each order. I could even use the chunky scraps of linoleum that I cut away to create the block with.
It’s a win-win. I don’t feel like I’m being wasteful, and you get a nice little surprise with your package! So now, with every single order that I send out, a surprise 4x6 print will be included with the receipt. They are all hand printed by me and sent with lots of love and appreciation to you.
