Hot Off the Press: Fantagraphics Bookstore, Phoenix Film Festival and More

March 21, 2012

From film festivals to business marketing and art shows to music CDs, the design we see come through the presses at PsPrint is an eclectic bunch. We’re inspired by it every day. One of the neat things is seeing just how customers use printed products. For example, while some musicians will opt for a traditional CD jewel case and insert, designer Douglas Kochmanski opted for a more DIY project for his friend, singer-songwriter Brett Staggs: Kochmanski designed a sticker that he said is going to be applied to a paperboard sleeve, and the back of the sleeve and the CD itself are going to be marked with a custom stamp. For more inspiration, just look at all the recent designs PsPrint has printed in the past week: postcards, business cards, flyers, invitations and more. For even more creative designs, be sure to check out last week’s “Hot Off the Press.” We’re always on the hunt for original printing projects, so if you’ve worked on something you think deserves to be included in a future “Hot Off the Press,” please let us know in the Comments below.
