TPI Solutions Ink Blog: Grad Parties, Logo Design & Posters


The TPI Solutions Ink Blog is finally underway!

Blogging has been something I have been thinking about and procrastinating on for about nine months now. So, I guess it's appropriate for me to begin today seeing that getting started in writing a blog could, I suppose, metaphorically be compared to giving birth. And, I'm thinking, a successful blog will need to be nurtured by its metaphorical parents and community, true?

Okay, I'll admit, a bit corny however, I have given birth three times and am in the process of raising three teenage daughters at the moment. If I can do that, blogging should be a breeze, right?

This is such a busy time of year in my household. School is almost out, the kids are in the midst of final exams and end of the year celebrations. My eldest daughter just graduated from high school and my youngest daughter will be graduating from eighth grade next week. Being in the printing business sure has its perks at different times throughout the year. The big grad party is coming up this weekend and of course I've been trying to think of some unique ideas. A few months back Diana, our graphic designer, came up with a simple logo design that I have used on our facebook event page for the grad party.

The logo has been great for all sorts of uses. We are printing custom thank you cards with this logo for my daughter to use after her party. I think that one of the coolest things we are doing is creating a large format poster using Diana's logo design and some graduation photos. At TPI Solutions Ink we mount our large format color posters on gator board so that they can be displayed easily. This will be great for the grad party. The guests will be able to autograph the poster and write messages for the graduate. This will be a great keepsake and hopefully a nice source of inspiration for Emily as she heads off to college in the fall!

Stay tuned . . . I'll let you know how it goes over with the crowd and the graduate!
