Hot Off the Press

We’ve finally released a tutorial for our Custom Design Tool! This will be super helpful for those who want to get the most out of the tool, and also to get some design tips.

How exciting is this?!

Coming Soon

Okay everybody, I’ve been über busy making some great new features for the website. It’s all ridiculously exciting, and will be so worth not hearing from me on this blog for the past couple of months.

One of the great new features we’ve been working on is the ability to view and make changes to your completed custom designs.  Another, is that we now have embellishments available in the custom design tool, so you can create vinyl wall words with some extra spice! We’ve also made a Custom Design Tool Tutorial Video for you guys, which will be online today or tomorrow. It’s going to be fabulous.

We’ve also been working on some new Application Instruction Videos, which are almost ready, and should be online this week. We put together some troubleshooting videos to go along with them, for those customers who’ve found certain steps to be difficult during application.

I’ll keep you updated as all of these things become available. But I just couldn’t contain my excitement long enough to wait!

Fixing Our Videos

So one of the little things that has been driving me crazy for almost a year is our video library. We have some awesome and dead useful instructional videos showing the step-by-step application of a Wall Written Statement.

We made these videos by borrowing my dad’s sweet video camera, then my sister, Natalie, had a five minute lesson on videography, and we cranked out some movies like it’s nobody’s business. Having no previous editing experience, I sat down for two days and put together some rough-but-good-enough videos for your viewing pleasure.

The clincher (and what’s been giving me that irritated twitch whenever I so much as think of YouTube) is: when I rendered the good-enough videos, they became blurry and not good enough anymore.

Want to see one and decide for yourself? I present to you Exhibit A: Blurry Step One Video:

BUT (eedle-deedle!) today I was able to sit down with an awesome videographer who is going to edit our videos and re-render them for us within the next week or two. I’m so excited!

Another cause for excitement, is that we’ll probably be able to make some more useful videos with application tips, design ideas and craft projects, as well as some tutorials for our website. So look forward to that for the summer.

Does anybody have a suggestion for a video project you’d like to see us make? Just leave a comment!
