Do you want to know one of the worst feelings in the world? It’s when you have been working for hours upon hours cutting paper, mixing ink, setting up the press and printing some really beautiful wedding invitations, and then when everything is printed and you go to trim the edges with the big giant guillotine paper cutter, in your haste you measure wrong and don’t catch your mistake, and then you accidentally chop off the ends of half a stack of RSVP cards. I did that. Yesterday. It’s a real bad feeling. Kind of made me nauseous.
I know you’ve probably done something like that before. Admit it. Doesn’t feel too good does it?
To the bride and groom, if you happen to be reading…DON’T WORRY!!! I picked myself up, took a deep breath, and headed back to the press to print some more. No problem. I just spent a little more time in the print studio that I had anticipated, but the invitations are spectacular!
In better news, yesterday Beth and I spoke to the senior graphic design class at our alma mater, the University of Missouri! How about that? We told them all about what we’ve been up to since our days at Mizzou, how we started our little business, and some of the things we’ve learned along the way. A big thanks to Deborah, Ric, and Jean who invited us to come, and to the students who asked great questions – we loved your enthusiasm! It’s also pretty great to be able to give back a little bit to a school, and faculty, that did so much for us!
Hope you have a FANTASTIC weekend!
