Project Description

Let’s put all your new knowledge to the test and get something fun printed! I challenge you to find a product on a print-on-demand site like Zazzle, Moo, Vistaprint, StationaryHQ, or any other print shop you feel like using to apply your design to, and get it printed! Here are some products and print shops to consider if you’re having a hard time deciding (I chose these products and printers because they sell in low quantities and are a great resource for getting comfortable with printing):

In the body of your project, include for us:

  • The project you chose to get printed
  • The printer you chose for the project, and why
  •  The guidelines you followed based on your product and printer
  • Any photos of the final, physical piece!

As always, feel free to use my project as a template for laying out yours.
