Some CUP News

I had hoped to be uploading the pictures of some of my jewellery creations today.  I started making a couple of pieces last night.  Unfortunately my fingers just haven’t been co-operating today so the pieces are half finished.  So something for the next post I think.

I had thought that perhaps I’d give writing a blog post a miss for today, but then I saw the latest news from CUP HQ.

CUP Update:  

Craftsuprint Printing Service –  Yes – you read it right!  “Printing Service”.  This is a new service offered by craftsUprint that means that you can now choose to have designs that you like printed out professionally on high quality gloss paper and posted to you – wherever you are in the world!

This new service means that those who don’t like, or are not able, to work with digital downloads, or those who’s printer doesn’t give them the quality they like for those special cards,  can now have access to the thousands upon thousands of the designs that are available on the CUP website, but have only been available as digital downloads up until now.  This includes design sheets, backgrounds and inserts.  I’m not sure about the kits at the moment.  I need to have a closer look at the site to check.

For those of you who want to find out more – there’s a brief introduction to the service to be find on the CUP site -> here.

CUP Newsletter Mailer – The latest E-mail update from CUP (24th Aug.) can be seen by clicking -> here.  Of course it contains news of the printing service, but there is so much more in it – for instance, one of the CUP Premier Designers, Sandie Burchell, has come up with a new format “3D Diamond Base Card Kits” which slot together and fold flat for posting.  There are some lovely designs already up on the CUP site, which you can see by clicking -> here.

Card Making Competition – Voting is now in full swing to find the winner of the competition to make any Pet Themed card using any download from Craftsuprint.  You can go and look at the gallery to see all the entries by clicking -> here.


You can see the cards I’ve made using design sheets from CUP in my “Crafter Showcase Area” on – here
