LadyB Creations *Open For Business* READ POST #1
I am no longer providing blanks. A lot of my new items (Character Mickey Heads) have many hours invested in them. I recently found a few of my things on a website (that I will not name) and that is why I am no longer providing blanks.
I do have some blanks of some of my older designs and they can be found in the Blanks folder in my photo bucket. If you do not see a blank of a design you want in there, I do not provide one. For those of you concerned about having a child's name on the DISign I totally understand so please consider using their first Initial or little brother, big sister, etc. instead.
If that doesn't work for you there are other designers who provide blanks so if you need a blank you might want to start a general request thread. Thanks for your understanding!
Welcome to my Design Thread! I am new to designing. I caught the bug while making magnets for my recent cruise.
Since I am new to designing I am still building my clip art and idea library. If you see a fill or sign in my files that you like but want a different character please let me know. Please see my photo bucket for all the samples I currently have on file. Please give me at least 1 month for designs. This means I have one month from the date you posted your request to complete and post your items. Anything under one month notice is considered a last minute request. You can post last minute requests but please note that I might not have time to get to them.
**Please note that name fills, mickey word heads and the Mickey word silhouettes are very time consuming, also if you misspelled something on a request for one of those designs it takes me just as long to fix it as I have to start all over. Please note that I am using the cut and paste feature now for those designs so please proof read your request before posting**
Request Instructions and Other Info:
If you are new to the DISign board please check out this post before requesting designs:
When requesting a design please give me the following information:
1. File Name of the sample from my photo bucket or post a link of the sample or list a detailed description.
2. Names, Dates, Color, Font or any other information you would like on the design. All info must be in your original request. It is time consuming to change things after the design is completed.
3. Character you want on the design if different than the sample, if you want me to use a specific clip art please post a picture of it in your request.
4. Date you need items by. * If you do not post this I am no longer asking when you need it by as I have grown tired of asking that over and over. If you do not list a need by date I will place your request on my list in order of received and that is how I will complete it which means you might not get your request in time if it is needed right away.*
Most of my DISigns are sized to print 8 1/2 x 11. If you need a specific size you must add that detail to your request. I use png file format for most of my DISigns but some I load as jpg. *Please note that my newer designs have a transparent background in png file. This means the background will print clear.*
Please note that all my designs are meant for personal use only which means you print them personally and do use them in anyway for profit.
I am willing to try new things, just ask :)
Please do not ask me to edit any other designers items.
**After you pick up your items please post a reply to let me know. Also be sure to preview all items before printing as I am human and can error especially when up late at night :)
*** After you complete your T-shirts, magnets etc, I would love to see a picture of the completed items. You can post it here on my thread.
When your design is finished I will post it on my thread. You will need to download it and print it. If the photo bucket link is broken please ask me to repost your items, I sometimes move things around in photo bucket and that breaks the link.
**Please note that due to Photbucket and my PC space issues I am going to start deleting items from my completed file on Photobucket and my PC. You have one month from the time I post your completed items to pick them up. Please be sure to check here often for your Disigns and please pick them up so I do not have to create them again as this will take time and you might not have them in time for your trip.**
To Download your completed DISign click on the thumbnail or link I posted, this will take you to my photo bucket site.
Once you are there you will see your Design and on the right side of the screen will be a download button located under media options. You must download the picture to get the full size, if you right click and save you will not get the full size and it will appear blurry or pixilated when printing. Select download and then save the design to your computer. I recommend making a folder on your desktop so they are easy to find when you need them.
When printing, always be sure to select the highest quality print option or photo printing. This is found under preferences when the print box pops up.
You can print your designs in several ways:
To Print from Paint:
Open a copy in Paint and print it from there, be sure to use print preview and make any adjustments if it does not fill the page as desired.
Click on file, page setup and you will be able to make your design portrait or landscape. You can also set margins.
To make your design fit on one page use the scaling option and choose fit to a 1 x 1 page
To have a little more flexibility in working with the design you can insert the image into a Word Document
To insert an image into Word:
From the toolbar select insert, then picture
From file: Use the file browser to locate your file
Choose the file and then click insert
To change the size of a photo in word
You can then right click on the picture and choose format picture then click on the size tab
and choose the dimensions you want the file to be (make sure your margins are set as small as possible)
click on the image and place your arrow over one of the corner guides when it become a two way arrow,
click on it and drag the arrow to the size you want the photo to be
(make sure you use a corner guide the middle guides will change the aspect ratio)
T-shirt Transfers- Mirror Images:
To make a mirror image in paint (for t-shirt transfers):
Press Ctrl+R this will bring up the flip/rotate dialogue window
Choose flip horizontal and then click on okay this should give you a mirror image of your design
To make a mirror image in Word:
This will be done in the printer options how to do this will vary by printer
and then Properties
there is probably a layout feature that will have a mirror image option choose this option and then print
Not all printers can do this if not you will have to first reverse the image in paint (see directions above)
I have never made a T-shirt but you can find instructions to make a T-shirt here (post 13):
You can purchase magnet paper from Staples, Walmart, Office Max, etc. I personally did not like the magnet paper (I used it for the stateroom portal ears and my magnets kept falling off the door) but it is up to you. If you buy the high gloss paper be sure to use the high gloss setting when printing or the ink will rub off.
You can print your magnets on cardstock (laminating optional but not necessary) cut out and then mount with magnet strips or sheets.
You can print your magnets on regular paper, laminate and then mount with magnet strips or sheets. If you use regular paper you will need to laminate or the magnets will not last long.
Samples of my work are below. Please see my photo bucket http://s1061.photobucket.com/user/La...?sort=6&page=0 for everything I have done so far. Be sure to look at the sub albums too. If you have something in mind that you do not see please ask and I will try to make it for you. If it is beyond my ability I will let you know. The Completed Items folder is where I usually store a completed request unless it is a new design, I file those by theme. Name Fills get filed under name fills so that others can locate their own names quickly.
1. Mickey Heads
2. Cruise Items
3. Name Fills
4. T-Shirt DISigns:
5. Street Signs
When requesting a Street Sign please give me the following information:
1. Name to use (first, last or other like Pirate or Princess)
2. List what street type to use (St, Ave, DR, Blvd or Lane)
3. Character you would like me to use or name of the street sign sample in my photo bucket.
4. Name of place to put in the Mickey Head (Disneyland, Disneyworld, Cruise ship name etc). If you do not put a place I will leave it blank.
I will use a Block font or another font that I think fits the theme of the Street Sign.
Great job!! Look forward to seeing more disigns by you. Now that you got your feet wet with disigning...WATCH OUT!!!
Looks like you have been very busy! They look great!
Beware though, that designing is very addicting (as you probably already know). We all joke that we need to start a support group around here. Welcome to the DISign world!
Yea!! I want some please!
These are so cute! I would love if you could make me some names. I love the mickey one that you showed in the first post. I saw in your file that you also do one with Minnie. Is it possible to have the Minnie one outlined in red like the Mickey one is?
I need the Mickey one with the names:

Hi there and congrats on your new found addiction! You are a wonderful designer and had it not been because you said you are a beginner, I would have never thought so...all your designs are simply amazing but seeing as Halloween is just around the corner, I was hoping I could bother you for a few designs.

1 Boy Pirate- David
