CD, CD, CD! Yes, I…

CD, CD, CD!

Yes, I think I am finally, actually ready to start taking orders for those CD's I made, oh so very long ago. My new iBook comes with a CD burner, which means that rather than doing a big order through some company (and paying a lot of money up-front), I can just burn them one by one, as needed. The profit margin will be slightly less, and the effort slightly more, but it's worth it in terms of convenience and immediacy. It does mean that I'll be inserting the cover by hand, and that the whole thing won't be shrink-wrapped, but you'll forgive me that, yes?

I'm not quite ready to start sending them out -- CD #2 (Esthely Blue) is almost ready, but needs some tweaks to the graphics. I think I'll have Kinko's do the actual duplication, perhaps in batches of 50 or some such. It's worth it not to have to cut all those out by hand! I hope I can lay it out (or get Zak to do it?) double-sided so it's just one sheet of paper each, and one cut. I *think* that's do-able. CD #1 (no title yet) needs to have the whole cover designed still. But I'm pretty sure that it can be done quick, at least in time for Valentine's Day. And so, if you're thinking of a present for yourself or your sweetie or someone you admire, maybe you'd like one of these?
