Identity Simplicity, Wine Label Stock & Love Letters

Tamarindo Identity on Parse & ParcelTGIF!

Where did summer go?  We’ve been busy bees this month, filling orders, packing and shipping The Parcel and moving into our new digs in Cleveland. This past week we started stocking The Sample Studio, a giant 40′ wall of floor to ceiling paper samples. Aside from a few minor paper cuts, it’s coming along nicely. Stay tuned – we’ll be sharing more on that in a bit.

In the meantime, we answered some questions from creatives like what color options exist in maroon colored cover stock  – here are a few to check out: French Speckletone Wine 100# Cover Smooth, French Construction Paver Red 100# Cover Smooth, Classic Linen Burgundy 80# Cover Linen, Royal Sundance Burgundy 80# & 100# Cover Linen,  Mohawk Carnival Beet 80# Cover Groove & Linen, Mohawk Loop Chili 110# Cover Feltmark & Antique Vellum.
