Take a Peek Into Our GotPrint Texas Facility...

Check out our new video, featuring our Grapevine, Texas facility, narrated by our own general manager, Kevin Schrader. 

Just a hint - it features our new and very large press Heidelberg XL 145 (which has the ability to run the equivalent of two press sheets compared to other presses that are smaller format, while still running at 15,000 sheets per hour! 

From the large equipment to our fully staffed (and large) facility, Kevin really does say it best, "As the saying goes, everything is bigger in Texas, it's especially true with our Texas facility!"

From the Twitter Pool...

It's been go-go-go! at the GotPrint warehouses these past few months. Orders have been flying hot off the press, bundled and shipped right into our customers' camera-ready hands. Many of you have been kind enough to also share these photos with us on Twitter and Facebook, so we gathered together a few of our favorites tweets (and their corresponding pictures) from the past month to showcase them on our blog.

To start, check out this great greeting card design photographed by professional pet photographer Kat Ku, who really knows how to produce heart-melting shots of furry critters. Really, Kat said it best when she tweeted, "Images of my first #greetingcard #design. Who doesn't love receiving a card with a cute #doggy on front? @GotPrint

One can't help but notice the great detail in illustrator Laurie A. Conley's business card design. Laurie, who has been drawing since age 5 when her grandfather gifted her a set of Prismacolor colored pencils, says she mostly draws with pen and ink or pencil. Her beautiful illustrations are mostly lighthearted and drawn from a variety of inspirations, ranging from history to fantasy.

But what about the illustration on the card? Laurie explains, "The illustration on my card was inspired by the character of Marianne Dashwood from "Sense and Sensibility" by Jane Austen. She's drawn with brown ink and your printing captured the color perfectly!"

Bookmarks are a great way to market if you're a writer or editor - and it's something your fans and customers can use and reuse time and again! Just think of every time you've had to resort to placing a pen, phone or cracker to hold your place in a book, and you'll understand the importance of this marketing tool. 

Tom of TGH writing services makes use of his glossy, double-sided bookmarks with an image of book binds on one side, and all his contact information on the reverse side. The extra space on the bookmark allows him to get a few extra words in there to explain about his services, all while still maintaining a clutter-free design.
