D&K Printing: The Movie

The past several months have been immensely busy at D&K Printing - including a January that ran more shifts on press than we've ran in a single month since 2005. A good sign of the times?
We had friend of D&K and immensely talented videographer, Brandon Lied of Steel Rock Films, by the office to film a day in our life. Here is what he came up with. Enjoy.

Supporting the Communty

We've had a busy summer at the shop, but that doesn't mean we haven't made time to support some of our favorite local events. Check out some of the great festivities that D&K has had the privilege to be a part of this summer.

Cactus' Bike From Work Bash was a huge success, hosting +1,200 attendees and raising more than $1,200 for Bike Denver. Free beer was provided by MolsonCoors and Illegal Pete's offered up some delicious burritos. Fun was has by all. You can check out BFWB's website here and The Denver Egotist's event recap here.

Coming up on August 19 is COMMON Pitch. COMMON is Alex and Ana Bogusky's newest undertaking with the goal of building "a creative community for rapidly prototyping social ventures. All done under a unified and collaborative brand." Those are some big words that basically mean that COMMON is a group of people who want to use creativity for good. COMMON Pitch is an event where people present their ideas for social good....while enjoying some libations and good music. You can learn more about COMMON here. You can learn more about COMMON Pitch here.

Next up, on September 23, is the Art Directors Club Denver (ADCD) Annual Show. The event honors the best creative work produced in Colorado over the past year. With more than 40 different winners in 15 different categories, there will be some amazing work on display during the ceremony at the Denver Art Museum. You can learn more about ADCD here. You can buy tickets to the event here.
Also, ADCD is still looking for sponsors for the show. Check out the great opportunities here.

Last but not least, we're getting stoked for AIGA's Bordo Bello. This year's event will include +225 original works off art from local and national artists. But there is a catch. Each piece of art uses a skate deck as the canvas. All of the proceeds go to AIGA Colorado's mentorship programs. You can learn more Bordo Bello here. Be sure to check out the slideshow of last year's boards here.

We hope to see you all at the events!

Gotta Love A Hand-Written Thank You Note

Last week the wife received some clothes she had ordered from Land's End. A few days later, this showed up in the mail. Who doesn't love receiving a hand-written thank you note. It is pretty awesome that a company as large as Land's End would take the time to do this for its customers. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!

Happy St. Paddy's Day!

We're not sure of the reason for the correlation, but the printing industry abounds with Irish men and women. That's why it's no surprise that the anticipation for St. Paddy's Day is starting to near a fever pitch around the shop. This season we're handing out some Irish goodness to our friends and colleagues in the form of Irish libations and letterpress-printed coasters printed here at D&K.
Let us know if you want in and we'll send or bring you our gift. Tis the Season!
