Friday Black book review

I bought this book at a signing in Boston last week. The author Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah read a selection and gave some thoughts on his experience as a new writer. The book is a collection of short stories with deep, impactful themes but told in digestible and entertaining settings. These stories each mix an aspect of fantasy or surrealism with a message that we can relate to today. These stories are significant and meaningful, but easy to read and hard to forget. I blew through the book in less than a week.

Plus the colors are just right for fall. Ha!

New patterns – these are showstoppers!

We just created two new patterns in time for the gift-giving season! These new items are some of the best yet. The first features simple colors, and classic old-school font accents. The second pattern has some cool interlocking swirls, and the brightest colors of any of our bookmarks. They are both cut from heavy duty, upholstery fabric with amazing textural elements. Here is a preview:

Look for more pics of the finished product in the next few days. These will be available for purchase by early next week, or you can request a sample through our contact page.

New Packaging – the best yet

This is exciting news… (at least for us). We have been working with Duke Packaging to create a new custom package, and we just got them in today!

This new package features a die cut window on the front and a diagram of your brain on the back. The window allows you to easily see and feel the texture and styles of each item. The diagram on the back helps to explain the neuroscience behind the bookmarks and why they are more than just a bookmark. No more struggling to explain to your friends why you are so excited about the bookmark that you gave them.
