Christmas Card 2019

My photograph for 2019 was of blue stained glass with angels in panels between silhouetted stone tracery. It is part of the upper (hood) area of the west window of St. Mary's Church, Rye.

Camera = Panasonic TZ35.

The border was a duplicate of 2016's.


Card assembly instructions to duplicate the original:

  1. Get the full resolution photograph printed at 6"x4.5" on photographic paper.
  2. Print the border using a laser printer (or print once and duplicate by photocopier) on A4 160 g/m2 white cardboard.
  3. Fold the printed cardboard into an A5 greetings card with one straight crease.
  4. Glue (or double sided selotape or similar) the photograph to the card in the correct orientation. Take care not to make the photograph too soggy.

Printing the border & photograph together on a colour printer does not give as good results (neither home laser nor inkjet printers have yet reached photographic printing quality). It also costs more (because of the ridiculous current price of printer ink) and gives a more mass-produced look.
