Well. This is embarrassing. I've got the payment from Buckshot & Keenedge but my laptop refuses to charge/turn on so updating my spreadsheet is currently impossible. Stamps didn't arrive in the morning post anyway and I can probably rebuild the sheet from my email but it's a pain I could do without...

Have you tried taking the battery out and just running it off the charger? We've had a couple of occasions at work where this has allowed the laptop to run.

Yes, tried that, also tried a different charger. It's an old MacBook that was getting creaky anyway. I've got a backup of the spreadsheet but it wasn't that up to date. Better start trawling my emails now and rebuilding!

Right, Excel completely messed up importing my LibreOffice spreadsheet so more or less redid it from scratch (really hate the new MS Office but that's what's on my work laptop). Pretty sure I have all the correct information. Still waiting for 2 payments but being stuck inside with serious man-flu, I'm in no rush. If the stamps arrive later today, I can hopefully get them posted tomorrow. If not, I'm away until Wednesday...

Forgot to tell them I'd moved house and sure enough, they're at the old house. Will pop over and collect them now

I have the stamps!

Unfortunately, they are all attached face down to the backing sheets so I'll have to undo & repack them all individually but the few I've checked seem pretty good



As I said, I won't be able to post them until next week. Sorry, it's my fault (but you've waited this long!)

Please, lads, as an avid threadstalker who has been watching with interest having been part of the GB1, will you stick up shots of the finished imprints on leather if you do a test? I would LOVE to see them, they're such a fine looking batch of designs!

Well, they're all there. Despite my instructions, they've cut the designs close rather than to the square but it doesn't affect how they work. It's best to squeeze them onto leather with a vice rather than bang them with a hammer

in case you're wondering why mine is upside down it's because it has my full address on it and I didn't want to post that publicly...
