Online Printing Services

Design/ Sponsor

Finding a perfect place for online printing services can be tough. You design, you edit and you design again. You upload, and submit it. And then you pray… you pray your design will look beautiful printed. Just as you had imagined. To me, getting my final piece in the mail is like a mini designer Christmas. It’s so exciting when you open the box and look at your design… alive and in color!

With you don’t have to worry about worrying you know you will have something beautiful delivered to your doorstep. What I love about Print Runner is the fact that they started small ten years ago and are now a 25,000 sq ft facility doing all the work on the premises. You do not have to worry about anyone playing “telephone” with your design. Located in Southern California, Print Runner can complete all your printing needs from invitations to stickers.

design your own stickers

Design/ Sponsor/ www

Back when I was in middle school/high school I had a huge sticker collection. I’m not really sure what made me want to collect them (probably the lack of internet in my life at the time LOL). But I had a ton, and now that I’m a full time designer I love the fact that I can create basically anything I want and have it printed. I’ve been searching for a company that does sticker printing. Print Runner offers many options on sticker printing but the thing I am super excited about is the fact that they offer them in a roll! Not just sheets of stickers.

Now my only issue is deciding what to put on the stickers. Designing for someone else – that’s easy. Designing for me? It will be the design that never ends! Any suggestions on what I should print on stickers?

Unconventional Tattly #4

Design/ www

A few weeks ago I submitted an idea to Tattly. What’s tattly you ask? Fun, temporary tattoos made by designers. Back when I was a waitress, and when we had nothing to do I would take the temporary tattoos from the machine and make it stick to the cardboard on the back of my writing pad.

I was reminded of this when I first heard of tattly. So I went ahead and bought myself one of those Moleskin Cahier Notebooks. And had a party with it.

Some tips when applying to cardboard:
– It might be sticky to the touch for a little while, just let dry.
– It might crack and weather over time but to me that’s what makes temporary tattoos awesome!

Yes, I’m a font snob


I was searching the other day, trying to figure out how I could get Helvetica on my Windows computer at work. Of course only you can understand if you are a “font snob” yourself, how very different Arial and Helvetica are. But, that’s besides my point. I came across some funny things as I was searching.

This shirt being one of them:

Then I saw this:

I also read this blog post which I thought was hysterical. What if Windows 7 came bundled with Movie Stars? You will have to see for yourself.

Is it me… or did anyone else notice these store signs/logos look oddly similar? Ok so the type is one thing, but the COLORS TOO?! What is this world coming to… !

Happy Football


I recently made some Blackberry Backgrounds for my boyfriend’s new Blackberry phone – thought I would share since I am sure there are others who might enjoy… They are 640 x 480.

Thank You Internet

Design/ Rambling

What a busy busy holiday season it has been! It’s been crazy but I am glad January is almost here and we can hibernate for a while. A few weeks ago I received a comment on this blog post – one a I had discussed a book I found at a second hand shop. The owner of the shop had told me it was part of the estate from Murray Stein but the book itself had “Lou Kashins” written on it.

It is for reasons like this that I love the internet! He found my blog because he was searching his uncle’s name. I think that is so awesome that you can discuss a thought and the next thing you know someone has the same thought, googles it, and then you are connected. I am always glad to learn the history behind the second hand items I come across. There is so much more depth to something that had a life before it got to you. Thank you Lee for finding my blog and sharing your story!
