Avatars for TAM 8

Just want to let everyone know that I will be printing up avatar stickers for forum members to put on their badges.

For newer members, get your post counts up and pick your avatars.

I will post an avatar request thread sometime in June to get everyone's avatars.

I am going to try to do a better printing job than last year, I did them very last minute last year and they did not come out as nice as I would have liked.

Make sure you have a printer that can print the proper shade of green, this time.

(Not that I can really the difference. I scored poorly on the color differentiation test.)

My printer does 6 colors and usually does well provided I have time to get it set up right. Last year I did not have that time.

cStyle, go into community and post on some fun threads, you will get there fast

Thanks for volunteering; I was at TAM London, and it would have been much easier to find other forum members there if avatar badges were being worn.

What size image will be best for you to work with? If you let us know now (or when you know, if you need to check printing options, etc.), that will give a bit more time for me to find the original photo and adjust it to size.

(I expect I'll be back to my usual avatar by June.)

I have Photoshop and Illustrator and can handle any size avatar and any file format. I will be able to resize if needed, so when I post the avatar thread, just give me what you have then. If there are any issues with size or format, I will let you know then.

I don't think he's got enough posts for an attachment. But hey, it's months away still, plenty time to get to both attachment and avatar level!

For the avatars I just print the image and not the names, but otherwise, yes I can do that font and color.
