SGC Conference Preparations

On Wednesday I leave for Richmond to attend the annual Southern Graphics Council (SGC) Conference at Viginia Commonwealth University. It's said that the SGC is the largest print organization in North America and that the annual conference is the largest yearly gathering in the field of printmaking. The committee is expecting over 1000 people in Richmond this year.

So I thought it might be a good idea to make up a few business cards. I got out a couple of stacks of rejected prints, laser-printed my contact info on some sticky-backed labels, got out my X-Acto knife and went to town. I think I made about 400 business cards!

I plan to blog from Richmond, so stay tuned if you'd like to vicariously attend the conference. This year's conference topics will focus on the integration of digital media and printmaking.

That's great you are going to report back for all of us who wish we could be in Richmond. I'm especially interested since I'm a web designer by day, printmaker by night. I know these 2 worlds of mine are destined to bleed together eventually!

Glad you all like the cards! Makes me feel better -- not wasting that expensive Japanese paper.
