Laboring on the Labor Day weekend…

Posted by OakCourt on Sep 5, 2010 in New Products, Uncategorized

Happy Labor Day! There’s no resting around here… LOL Even though it’s a holiday weekend, I can’t resist trying to get caught up with some things that need doing around here.

The new air freshener shapes are hitting the shopping cart slowly but surely….. the first ones up are the seasonal ones for fall, since it’s almost here! I added the Candy Corn, Football Helmet and Acorn shapes this afternoon, and will be adding more over the next few days.

My scanner died not long ago, and I splurged on a fancy one. Now, of course, I had to figure out all of the settings and tweaks again, and it took me all afternoon to create a pre-set to scan the new air freshener shapes properly, with the right contrast, brighness, color balancing, and so forth. I couldn’t get them to look like the scans we’ve had in the cart over the past few years! So I decided that the new shapes would have a different color background, and I would do what I’ve been wanting to do for a long time – clean up the pics, make all the thumbnails the same size and shape, and generally make the new scans even better than the old ones.

Naturally, though, it’s made me want to re-scan all of our existing shapes to make the pictures uniform. Nothing like creating myself extra work on what’s supposed to be a holiday weekend off! (vbg) Then I’ll need to change the variety pack that has one of every shape in it, and add products for the new shapes in “slightly imperfects”, and…. well, you get the idea!

Anyway, I hope you’ll check out the new shapes and watch over the next few days as I add even more of them. You can access them in the “new arrivals” or “what’s new” links on the home page of our site. The images below link to the shopping cart, where you can see a larger picture!
