TPI Solutions Ink presents 'Twas the Night before a Deadline

By Carrie Grove | Mon, Dec 23, 2013

Last year at TPI Solutions Ink we all put our heads together and rewrote the classic poem "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" and that became our holiday card. This year we decided to turn it into this humorous holiday video. A big thanks to Kevin Walunas for filming, editing and making it happen!

Please watch, enjoy and share! Happy Holidays!

RGB, CMYK & Spot Colors: What You Need to Know

By Addy Fulmer | Fri, Apr 26, 2013

As a graphic designer, I often have to answer some version of the question: "Why does the color on my screen look different than the color that's printed?" The best way to avoid this problem is to have a strong understanding of the different color modes and their uses.

Holiday Greetings from TPI Solutions Ink

The Printer's Version

Twas the night before . . .

and all through the shop
All the presses were running,
they just could not stop.   

Spot colors were checked
by the pressman with care,
To stray from the pantone book,
he would not dare.

When out in the bindery
there arose s
uch a clatter,
He r
an to the folder to see
what was the matter.

When, what to his
wondering eyes did appear
But a torn up old press sheet
that was stuck in the gear

With a little adjustment
so lively and quick,
He realized the paper
might just be too thick.

He called on his coworkers
so quickly they came,
As he whistled and shouted
and called them by name;

Now Jim, now Diana,
Carrie Andrew and Dan,

Heather, Jack, Addy Bill

come as quick as you can!

We must finish this job,
the sheets piled so tall,
Now fold away! Fold away!

Fold away all!

So onto finishing the
big job all by hand,
To miss a tight deadline is
something we cannot stand.


TPI made sure it was done and done right,

Happy printing to all and to all a good night!
