Before I bought my Yudu, I did a Google search to see if I could find any real-person reviews. The one I read said she’d had the Yudu for about two months (had received it to review) before she opened the box. “That’s crazy!” I said. “How could you leave it sitting in the box for two months?”
Let me tell you how: By not being able to commit to a design to try when you finally do open the box.
Yes, I bought a Yudu. In fact, I bought a Yudu shortly after I posted about wanting one. And it sat. In the box. For about two months. I might have commitment issues.
Can you blame me, though? It can get expensive to mess up screens and emulsions and shirts. To whit: The Wall of Shame:
In my defense, I went straight from the box to the Quick-Start Guide as I was experimenting. Maybe not the best way to go about it, but I’m a hands-on kinda learner. As you can see, I was doing a lot of learning. Or trying to. *sigh*
I think most people will probably get much better results, particularly if they watch the demos or do a little reading before getting started. Why I thought it would be a great idea to try a design with such small details on it is beyond me.
Of course, it wasn’t all bad. By the next afternoon, I had a better idea of how to resolve some of the issues I was having. And I ended up with a pretty cute shirt to show for it. It’s not perfect … but neither am I.
