We have moved onto Printing

My people come from a part of the country where you pretty much made whatever life out of what you had. There entirely wasn’t any thoughts of getting a hand out or having someone else take care of things. It was on you and that was it. My father worked a easily demanding job. What’s worse is he had to drive a long way to get to his work. Remarkably, it was a printing corporation. The location was 1 of the first fairly large, regional printing, poster and sign business. This is back when the printing and sign business was still a easily physical process. Mom did everything from genre setting to outright decorative design. He had an enormous creative streak that he never entirely leveraged fully. To him, working at the printing shop put food on the table and left him more time for his wood working passion. That man could craft anything out of wood. I don’t assume the people I was with and I ever had a piece of furniture that he didn’t make himself. I got obsessed with the wood working as well. However, I went to art school to expand our creative horizons. I came home and opened a small wood working business that took off quite well. It was plenty for just me. However, I have a growing family and have shifted toward more retail wood working with Gerber routers. I also bought a Gerber Digital printer to print up our own t shirt designs. These additions have given our business a bit more nimbleness to create current resite streams. I could not be more satisfied to be doing 2 of the things our Mom consistently did. And, I’m still making it on our own.
