Katie Rivers - Middlesex Fashion Design Student

Task:
Sublimation printing.

Notes:
I took the new improved sublimation files into uni to get 7 meters of sublimation printed ready for use.

I realised I could of used more of the white space around the images better to cram more prints on so I altered a few to get more on a page ready for printing again tomorrow.

Very productive so far.

THURSDAY - 10.04.14

Task:
Continuing sublimation files

Notes:
I went into uni to get some of the sublimation files printed out ready to use, however the studio was shut despite it saying it was suppose to be open.
I continued on from yesterday’s sublimation files on photoshop as we had a few technical problems with the files that needed sitting out.

A very frustrating day.
