30 Days of Gratitude: Day 24

I’m always on the look-out for goofy or oddball vintage photos when I hit the antique stores and garage sales.  Many times they’re the centerpiece of my greeting cards and collages.  So, I need a reliable, knowledgeable and reasonably priced copy shop.  Luckily, I have MinuteMan.  Just a few blocks from my apartment, the gals at MinuteMan have come to know me and my desires.  They keep quality cardstock on hand and can size my color photos perfectly.  They’re also great fun.  If other customers come in, we always get them to yuck it up with us.  It’s a happy-making place.

Here’s a little scientific research on the benefit of cultivating gratitude care of Dr. Daniel Amen.

    Yes, copies are important! This sounds like a great place. Do you find it more affordable than a color scanner/copier/printer?

    Only 6 more days left on your challenge. It’s been a wonderful series, Sandy! Hope your week is going well, my friend!

      I can get a few pix printed when I have a couple of extra bucks, so it *feels* more affordable. The only way I could afford a color scanner/copier would be to put it on the Visa card, and that way lies madness!
      Thanks for sticking with me through the Gratitude challenge. I’ve been wondering if it’s helped me maintain this abnormally long stable spell. Hmmm. . .

    I’m an auction/thrift store devotee from way back, and I’ve accumulated some pretty nifty 1940s and 50s greeting cards, but most are used. Do you think it would be possible and/or ethical to reproduce them? Take them to a print shop to do?

    Most have just a signature inside, although some have lengthy notes. Any idea how to remove those? I was thinking of just reusing the front on new stock, but some of them has uber-cute pop ups and pictures inside.

      Hmm. Ethical and possible, for sure. For the ones with just a signature, you could cover that with a smidge of card stock paper, pretty it up a little, then sign your own name. But, the ones with lengthy notes would be a pickle. Maybe cut off the front of the card (or the part of it you want), and attach that to new card stock. Then cut out the uberness from the inside and transfer that to the new card. ??? Let me know if that works at all.
