Printables are available for personal, non-commercial use only please! They are for fun – I do not make any money from these and will remove them if necessary or requested. 🙂
Stuff like this always starts simply. These “covers” were found on a card inside a Horse Illustrated magazine, for one of those book clubs that suck you in and never ever let you go. They were the perfect size to cut out and make into mini books! Each one has pages, making them “readable,” but said pages are all blank.
The print quality of them got me thinking though. A while back I printed up some mini magazines and even a Breyer guide, but the print quality was so poor. Thanks to stuff I’ve learned in school, I figured out that was because of the resolution I had originally made them in. So today, I figured I would put this new info to the test and see if I could get better results!
The images were taken with my camera and put together in Photoshop. These ones don’t have pages (I actually thought of getting shots of the actual pages to use… but figured that was a little overkill…) and are just glued to cardboard.
I’ve uploaded the images in case anyone would like them. They are much larger at first glance, but they print out correctly if printed in “actual size.” This is for Photoshop, however. Printing just through Windows or something may stretch or crop them or do other weird things… so feel free to re-edit them however you would like:
Update! I’ve added all files to a single PDF for ease of printing. Smoky the Cowhorse has been resized to match the Henry books. (like I originally intended but never fixed, ack!) Download it here!
Now… I just need to get around to re-creating those mini magazines! These ones are quite sad looking:
