Teacup Giraffe – I finally got mine in the mail yesterday!

I have been reading about the Teacup Giraffe for a long time, checking care instructions, what to feed them and finally ordered mine last week! I got it in the mail this morning and couldn’t be more excited! Here are some pics I took with it (no name yet, can’t decide).

Print anything on Toilet Paper

 

Here are some masterpieces I printed on toilet paper. I was surprised at the stricking quality of TP printing. Watch the video and tips below to see how to do this yourself!

I’m waiting for someone to come over and use my bathroom!!! This can make a great Candid Camera moment.

There’s a theme for each webisode. Since this one is all about toilet paper, I tried to brainstorm all the things I can do w/TP. Printing on TP was one of the first things that hit me, but I wasn’t sure what kind of quality I could pull off. I also thought about a way to print that can be easily but with practice, replicated by other people. Could I put it through a printer? Could I paint on it? Then I remembered seeing a “Lost Dog” sign on one of my walks. The image and text were all runny because it was printed on an inkjet printer and rained on. I wondered if just getting the TP wet first would be the solution. Turns out it was, and such a simple, elegant solve!

Watch the video here to see the demo. A few key points below the video may help!

Key points:

  1. Spray the TP with water and stretch it out so there are no wrinkles.
  2. Be quick. The faster you can get the image from the printer to the TP, the better the results.
  3. Don’t give up! It may take a few tries but you will only get better.

Now find an image you want to put on TP and do it! Be sure to leave it for someone else to use in the bathroom! Take some pictures, maybe a video, and send them to me. Can’t wait to share your awesome work in the web show! Also let us know if you discover interesting tidbits along the process!
