A Thousand Snowflakes: The First "A Thousand Snowflakes" Poster is Now Available!

by David on December 14, 2009 0 Comments
The poster is now available via Zazzle! I am so excited to bring you this poster, the first of many products from A Thousand Snowflakes. As promised, the poster is available in four different prints -- black, green, blue, and red (see right). As of right now, it is available in the all sizes, but the largest version is quite pricey -- I'd recommend either "small" or "large". If you order before the 17th of December, shipping is guaranteed before Christmas, so place yours now, and thanks again for supporting A Thousand Snowflakes. We also have a charity we are donating a portion of our profits to, the American Lung Association, so please check that out above as well. More to come!

I've finally finished getting the layout done for the poster -- A Thousand Snowflakes is yielding the fruits of its labors! I'm so excited to make this available to you, and we'll be giving you a variety of ways and styles to show your support. The poster will be available in two sizes -- a small budget size and a larger premium size -- and have at least four color options: basic black, blue, red and green. Here is a sneak peak of the "coming soon" poster of a thousand hand cut paper snowflakes from A Thousand Snowflakes:

A Thousand Snowflakes: Doing the Math

by David on November 23, 2009 0 Comments
The first round of this project is completed -- I've made one thousand four-point paper snowflakes. Now how to get them into a book or onto a poster...

I've decided to go with squares of 25 snowflakes, or 5x5, as the base to give me a 8x5, or 25 snowflake by 40 snowflake, posted print.

But using 25s for the book will put me at the edge of the 40 page price break point, and that won't include title pages and other stuff. So I'll bump up to 36 snowflake, or 6x6, squares. But that won't get me evenly to 1000!

So here's the final breakdown for the book:

27 pages of 36 snowflakes = 972
07 pages of 04 snowflakes = 028
Total number of snowflakes= 1000

So I'll be able to keep everything in squares based on this math!
