WoodSmithe business cards

With WoodSmithe being a design build firm it only seemed appropriate to develop business cards for our team…..right?  What a process! This became a real labor of love so I wanted to share the process with you. First we took two sheets of ebony veneer and laminated them together to create double sided blanks. Next we laser cut the sheets of veneer into 3.5 x 2” standard business cards. Then came the fun part, figuring how we wanted to put our name on them. Months later after pursuing countless options including dye sub, digital UV, and various letterpress techniques we decided on foil.  We loved how the foil option looked with our favorite color combo….black on black. Here you can see each or our crew holding their own card.

Nathanael’s old roommate Steve Dubbeldam teamed up with my old roommate Corey Petrick to develop the website Apocalypse Pak. They partnered with uncrate to get the word out and now you purchased everything that you need to survive and thrive in the Apocalypse, all stuffed conveniently into one pack.

Weekend getaway: Ace hotel Palm Springs

Nathanael and I spent the weekend (and Monday!) with our significant others in Palm Springs. Our good buddy Jesse Carmichael (DJ at our Christmas party) married beautiful Renee at the Ace Hotel this past Sunday. Since Monday was 106 degrees, We spent about 9 hours in the pool, though we weren’t as graceful as these synchronized swimmers.
