Over the years, I have worked to make my pink paisley paper the best it could be. Although I wondered if I had taken the technique as far as it could go, that paper has always been in the back of my mind. In the past few months, I sat down with my new graphic artist and printer, and we developed a technique that has me really excited.
Combining the latest hi-tech equipment with old school methods, we came up with a new pink paisley paper that is very vintage-accurate. The photo shows the new paper next to the original.
I showed the prototype to collectors, vintage dealers and paisley enthusiasts, and they all feel it is an accurate reproduction of the original paper details, down to the textured silver background.
After I showed the paper to Brad Paisley, his reaction was “BC, you’ve nailed it.”
Look for another post soon with more photos of the paper. I’m not taking orders just yet, but when I release in a few weeks, I’ll announce it on the site and blog. Plus, I’ll have photos and specs showing new pink paisleys that will be for immediate sale.
