Piddling about with those dice again (by the way, why do they call them dice, because you don't roll them), this time I'm working on the design for the German set. I've come up with two designs, a subdued design and a high contrast design...
Printing onto glossy paper is a real pain in the ass as the colours never turn out quite how they imagine they will. The subdued design is supposed to be a mid grey - so you can see the German across faintly in the background - but instead it's turned out to be this rich dark-bluish tone (so sorry if you've downloaded my file for this and found it to be too dark).
Funnily enough I now like the high-contrast version I did with the red background.
I think what I will do if design a lighter grey version of the subdued design OR issue the file as a Photoshop .psd so people can alter the darkness or the design themselves to suit their particular printer/paper combination.
I think I might make a full set of the red labels for my Germans.
