come up with SEVERAL sketches of IDEAS
This asks that you
thoroughly research what the uses of embossing are. You
should look at wallpapers, greetings cards, business cards, letter-headings
and promotional material used in advertising products. You might
also look at items like credit cards, Label lettering machines
(Dymo), Braille symbols for the blind and books.
You could also include sheets that look at any or all of these:
of whatever you do is most important.)
( This is
really essential as you must plan out the time you have and the
marks you will get for each section. It would be crazy to
use 80% of your time on a part of the project that only gained
10% of the marks !!)
of the materials you could use explaining why some are suitable
and some are not.
of the topics
you could cover, or the processes and techniques you might use
in making your item.
and MECHANISMS that might be used a gain a mechanical advantage...so
making the machine easier to use.
PUNCH & STAMP as well as EXISTING EXAMPLES of embossed items
WEIGHTS of card and paper.
so that your embosser is suited to the size of hands that might
most belong to the people who would use the machine !
make embossing machines or undertake embossing work. Include these
letters (or e-mails) and any replies you get. Include catalogue
extracts that you might be sent.
do a QUESTIONNAIRE
that checks out what people perceive the value of embossing to
be...I.e. does it make things look more expensive / prestigious
or attractive. Include the data as BARCHARTS,
PIE CHARTS etc.
all your research…………
ICT wherever you can
