c&j graphics / the owls go

two weeks ago the production club of baltimore invited ron heddinger of c&j graphics to the admiral fell inn to give a talk about various finishing methods.

we were all amazed at what could be accomplished since we're pretty used to our letterpressing ways. we learned about holograms, foil stamping, embossing, uv coating (you can put glitter in it! and it comes in tons of colors!) and lots of other finishing services. we even got to handle some of the dies they use:

after the talk we headed to the ottobar and watched the owls go perform. our intern chris plays drums in the band so we couldn't pass up the opportunity to see him perform. they were so great that we decided to buy their cd! here they are being awesome:

tomorrow we will be opening our doors for a student studio tour put on by aiga baltimore. time to get everything cleaned up and ready to go!
