    Default We've entered Cameo-land!

    YEEHAW!

    I bought a used 25 x 38 Cameo from Montreal (Cosmex Graphics) on Thursday, we're in Toronto. Arrived Friday morning. Electrical issues - my electrician fixed em, with help from Pio, the Cosmex tech.

    Came in early today to figure out how to use the damn thing. Pio talked/walked us through it all, we got it all figured out. Billy Bishop from Obsolete in Austin was helpful in the days leading up to the purchase, basically saying to just buy the damn thing. i paid $2995 for it, plus 5% tax, and $100 to ship it.

    Me, Adam Swinbourne, and Louis Durand are now printing the first colour of Justin Hampton's QOTSA poster for Victoria. Printing six posters a minute. For the next ten days we'll be printing all of the Canadian QOTSA tour posters as fast as Justin can design em. Justin's work was the catalyst for the purchase, and It's About Bloody Time. Thanks Justin!

    Also a big thanks to Steve Barnett for taking a chance on us. We did the last QOTSA tour posters for Canada all by hand. But with Justin's work.....well, God bless the Cameo.

    Dudes, the last fourteen years I have been handpulling (insert lame joke here...). This machine is fucking amazing!
