Making Sure Everything Lines Up: Register Printing

If there's any doubt we're fully in the digital era, just look to graphic design. It amazes me how many designers think the whole concept of graphic design is tied to the history of the computer.Designing for the screen, on a screen, is a relatively straightforward venture. For the most part, what you see is what you get. Designing for print is a whole nother matter. The ease at which pixels and vectors can be...

On Being Brave

You might know James Victore, or at least who he is. If you do, you have an opinion of him. There was a time when I waited for each new installment of Burning Questions.Then it trailed off. I got busy. I dug into the trenches of the business and I stopped paying attention.And I woke up this morning realizing that I've lost the very thing I love about James and the thing at the core of...

Working With Out of State Wedding Vendors

One of the questions we get most often is about working with out of state wedding vendors. We're based in central Florida - a great area to live, but it's not known for luxury weddings. Because of this, most of our clients are based out-of-state (or at the south end of the state). That means virtually all of our clients are not local.Some wedding vendors really should be local to the wedding. The logistics of moving large amounts...

Going All The Way to The Edges | Edge-Painted Stationery

You want people to take the time to engage with the stationery they receive from you. Whether it's a wedding invitation, a business card, or a handwritten note, you give it to them hoping it gives them an opportunity to slow down for a second and reflect on the love you put into it (whether it's personal or business, you should always be acting with love).We believe one of the ways to give your recipients...

[quote]Average stuff for average people is getting ever more difficult to sell. If that's all you've got, get something else.[/quote]I've been a fan of Seth Godin's pretty much as long as I can remember. He's one of the most consistent minds in art and commerce.It's been years since the first time I heard him say something like the quote above. And I've believed him from day one.It's this concept that I live and work by -...

Perfect Letterpress Printing

I was talking shop with a fellow pressman a few weeks ago when he mentioned he was thinking about writing a blog post about how perfection is possible in letterpress printing. I thought this was a horrible idea.Let me start by saying this: no production process can yield 100% perfect results. We can minimize error to the nth degree, but perfection is impossible. And the production processes that do achieve near-perfection only do so because they never change...

Thank You Notes For Your Wedding

Planning a wedding can be a whirlwind. There are so many things to consider and make decisions about that you might not have even known existed before getting engaged. It can easily be overwhelming and you can feel like there are things slipping through the cracks. The truth is, none of these things are life or death (even if they feel like it).One of the things that's easy to overlook when planning your stationery...

Business Cards Take Shape

I remember the very first time I order business cards from Moo.com. They were their tiny little mini cards. I used a few different photos Tina Sargeant had taken of me for my career as a jazz bass player. I was so proud of those things! They were different than anything I have ever seen and I thought they were so cool. Then I had people tell me the they were frustrated that they got...

Music Mondays | The Formative Five No. 5

Music Mondays: because life’s better with a soundtrack. I recommend hitting play before reading further.I wanted to take the next few Music Mondays to address a few of the albums that have made a deep impact on me. I'm calling them the Formative Five - each one hit me at just the right time in my life and became a part of my formation. The first and arguably most formative was certainly a result of timing...
