Yesterday I finished printing some save the dates. The job was two-color and a bit technical because it had a border really close to the edge. They came out beautifully. I went to trim the edge on the guillotine and even though I checked it five times, when I made the cut the paper slipped and I ruined half of the job. LAME. My friend said she did that once and now she is superstitious. After she prints she always relaxes for an hour and eats a cookie before she cuts–she has never made that mistake again.

    I think everyone should relax and eat a cookie before doing something highly technical. If you can’t do a shot of whiskey, make it a cookie!
