Felix Doolittle - Printing Customer of the Month, November

By Carrie Grove | Wed, Nov 29, 2023

Our November printing customer of the month, we are proud to say, is Felix Doolittle!

In early 2013 this extraordinary stationery company was in search of a printer they could partner with. I am happy to say that their search led them to TPI Solutions Ink, a neighbor and specialist in high-quality, short run, digital printing, just a mere two miles away from their studio in Newton.

Our TPI Solutions Ink philosophy, is to develop long-term, trusting relationships with our clientele while offering fair prices and high-quality printed products. Our relationship with Felix Doolittle, the company, and Loren Sklar and Felix Fu, the owners, embodies this philosophy. We consider Felix and Loren friends as well as partners in this crazy little world of paper goods and print.

When we began working together ten years ago, Felix Doolittle was just getting back into selling their beautiful stationery wholesale. We worked with them those first few years, printing very small quantities of many different card designs while they built up their wholesale clientele. We came up with a wholesale pricing plan that worked for both of our companies, allowing small reorders until FD was able to determine the demand for different card designs. We are always open to working with other small businesses to come up with sensible print solutions and pricing models, that will help them meet their needs and enable them to grow.

Today we print over 500 different greeting card designs for Felix Doolittle, all on Mohawk Superfine Eggshell Cover on our HP Indigo 7900 Digital Press. In addition, some of the other products we print are their bookmark sets with matching die cut sleeves, belly bands and labels for their packaging, pin and sticker backing cards, their annual calendar and more! It's always exciting to see what Felix and Loren will create next. Be sure to visit their online store and grab one of their 2024  desk calendars before they are gone!

Cards and envelopes come in all shapes and sizes, and it's important to consider the size, shape and paper you'll be using before creating your design. Did you know that certain envelopes, like square for example, cost more money to send through the mail than rectangular ones? Did you fall in love with a specialty paper only to find out you can't get envelopes  that match? This blog will take you through the ins and outs of card and envelope design, using some standard sizes as examples.
