For our readers, here’s a preview of our Archival Resolutions posters coming off the printers today. Designed by our friends at Ruszel Design Company in Denver, Colorado, and manufactured right here by Estey Printing Company of Boulder, CO.
Tim Ruszel and I got a behind the scenes look at the press run and met the skilled craftswomen and men that run the presses. We also got a friendly tour of their manufacturing facilities where they support everything from full color digital printing, foil embossing, binding and specialized die cuts. The best part of the tour was seeing how print manufacturing combines the efficiency of modern digital printing techniques with traditional Heidelberg letterpress machines for more tactile and luxurious effects.
As part of continuing efforts to support us-manufacturers, we will continue wherever possible to make all of our products regionally–in Colorado and Oregon. We really enjoy the opportunity to collaborate with the skilled craftsmen and women that we meet along the way.
Many thanks to Commerce With a Conscience who recommended that we put our Archival Clothing Resolutions into a purchasable, poster-sized format. C WAC please enjoy a free poster on us
