A New Addition // a paper cutter (that cuts a million sheets at a time)

Paper-CutterTeam, meet my new paper cutter!

I went down to Portland this weekend to pick this baby up from Joke -- OMG, it is everything thing that I dreamed of, and more. It's like a printers wet-dream. My God, this thing is amazing. Once I got it home and in position I had to take it for a spin -- I promptly grabbed a huge stack of my scrap paper and clamped it down -- to my shock/amazement (I didn't know what to expect) it sliced through the paper like butter. GAH! Do you know how much time this is going to save me? Hours I tell you, hours! Many of them, it is going to be awesome!

A huge thanks to Joke for thinking of me and selling this to me, I cannot tell you how excited that I am -- super, extra excited is a start.

Super Awesome Business Cards

Oh wow, look what I just found! Well actually more like, look what I just found on Oh So Beautiful Paper. These business cards are AMAZING. StudioSAVVY is the brain behind the idea to laminate two sheets of white paper, and sandwich a black sheet in the middle. So smart, I want to do that!!! Here is the note from the designer, it makes more sense from her:

The cards were printed on a privately-owned let­ter­press by a friend of a friend. We used 92# Reich Savoy for the top and bot­tom lay­ers, and I had him sand­wich in a 100# cover sheet of French Paper’s pop-tone in black licorice. Over­all there are 8 cards involv­ing 4 com­pli­men­tary sets of icons for my busi­ness part­ner and me.
