You never know what creative business concepts PsPrint customers will come up with. There was that time I discovered Flora Davis’ cat hair jewelry Etsy shop. This week brings recent printing jobs for a number of other unique companies. There’s Photobooth in San Francisco, which bills itself as the world’s only tintype and Polaroid portrait studio. Really – can you think of another? I didn’t think so. Then there’s Creativebug, which offers online video tutorials in crocheting, printmaking, upcycling and other crafts. Based on my ill attempt at learning to knit in a weekly studio class, I now recognize the importance of having an educational website available 24/7 for a refresher.
Photobooth and Creativebug both use postcard marketing as a way to get the word out about their businesses – you get a lot of real estate for your images and text, and anyone can shove a postcard in their bag to peruse later. This week’s “Hot Off the Press” features terrific postcards for ODC, Kidrobot, Ouchi Gallery, Universal Sole and more. For even more design inspiration, be sure to check out last week’s “Hot Off the Press.”
