Christmas Card 2020

My photograph for 2020 was of reflections in a glitter ball. The glitter ball was in hanging from the ceiling & the flower-like circular shapes in the reflection are of tables arranged gala style. It was at Battersea Park Events Arena in London where I was attending the BCS (British Computer Society) UK IT Industry Awards event.

Camera = Panasonic TZ5.

The border was a duplicate of last year'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 normal 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.
