trumpets blast!

Today I’m finishing up an order of business cards for local Bucks County Sullivan Building & Design.  There are two different cards, both are non-uniform sizes – one is a folded larger card and the other a small square shape.  I really like the variety and the classic blue ink color.  You can see some of Sullivan’s amazing projects here.

And, as always, here are a few more of my shots.  :)

grass printing 2

This was a busy week for wedding invitation jobs, both working on proofs and printing.  I love this time of year – I have a really nice bunch of clients and wedding projects are always fun for me.

Here are some grass invitations being printed on the Heidelberg.  I usually don’t take many press photos because the light is hard to get right, I’ll have to work on that.
