Vance Faulkenberg, one of the original owners, still puts in some hours here at the shop from time to time.

He lives out of state but when he is in town he helps us out.
His latest project was installing a sliding door in the delivery area of the shop.

To make sure he didn't goof off to much his wife, Ila, kept a close eye on him for us.

Herron Students Tour

Yesterday we had some students from the Herron School of Art tour the shop.

Jim took them around the shop and they were invited to ask any questions about printing as they toured.
There were 31 students who came to visit us yesterday.

Tom Faulkenberg shows them our letter presses.

He demonstrated scoring to them on a the Heidelberg.
The letterpress also diecuts, perforates, and numbers as well as being able to print.

While the students toured the shop Jim had me make them some notes cards to remember their visit to the shop and give them a sample of our work.

Jim Faulkenberg is showing them the bindery area and explaining how we fold signatures up to make a book.
Jim had also given them some samples of printing, in its various stages, while they were touring the shop.

Each student got a package of note cards with envelopes before leaving.

Here they are enjoying their note cards before they left the shop.

We did notice that while I was taking the group picture Tommy C. had sneaked into the group picture.
He says we will miss him when he is gone.
What a goober.

Art Work

We did some letterheads and things for the Art of Parrish a few months back.

They liked our work and had us do some prints of their art work.

They liked this work and also had us do the files for the art work on their van.

Turned out pretty nice.

Vance Faulkenberg running a Chief 15.
No wait. If you click on the picture and it will enlarge.
Now you can see what he is doing. Eating a Hershey candy bar!


This looks like it is at our current location but the building has been changed many time since this picture.

I don't know who that is with his back to the camera.

If you know please tell me or put it in the comment section.

We were tagged this weekend.

There was a big expo downtown this weekend and we were left this after the crowds left.
Wigh is what it says. I think it stands for "Where I got hives" or something like that.

I stood in the back of Tommy Cs truck to get a better picture of it.

After I took the pictures and I was stepping over the tailgate to get down. My foot got caught on the tailgate and it dropped me head first into the ally.

I was able to snap this awesome picture of the tailgate on my way down though.The sacrifices I make to record company history.

Here is some more lovely work on another wall behind Pat Ks truck.

I noticed some other new art on some other businesses around us this week to.
So we weren't the only ones to be blessed with art this weekend.
Tuesday morning finds Dan up on the roof creating a clean canvas for future budding artists.

I hope this artist remembers to come to us to have their business cards printed.

A big conference was held in the prepress department last week.

It took a lot of talk and looking before it was decided what to do.

What did they decide?
What color to paint the men's bathroom.

Do not adjust your screen!!!! This is the color they chose.

Now the outside walls look so bland compared to the day glow green in the bathroom.

What should we do?
Paint it. We have plenty of green paint left over.
That will wake you up in the morning.

Were Not On Fire!

This morning greeted us with a big fire in downtown Indianapolis.

The fire was not on our block (Thankfully) but two blocks down at a construction site for some new apartments.

You could smell the smoke as you entered the downtown area.

Tom Faulkenberg went up on the roof and took a couple of pictures of the fire.
