Under Pressure – to Make a Flyer

Nothing puts you under more pressure than starting your own business. But when you are able to make the big leap with a friend that has the same dedication as you, it makes it that much easier. I have had the pleasure of knowing the Slye family for many years, so when Joey Slye contacted me to tell me all about his new venture I was all ears. As I sat back and listened to Joey talk about the company he was starting with his friend Nathan Camden I began to formulate what style we would implement for their marketing

40th Birthday Celebration

July 16, 2018 No Comments Amanda Sale Graphic Design, Holiday, Multi Media

My best friend and rock turned the big 4 – 0 and for his 40th, he wanted to do a weekend get-a-way with friends for a brewery hop. Since he helped pick out the location, and planed which breweries he wanted to visit I really wanted to do a couple of small surprises to make it an extra special weekend. What’s a Beer without a Koozie? The obvious personalized touch was to make koozies. I have to say I am very thankful that I purchased my Easy Press because it made the processes of ironing on 20+ koozies that had

Making High School Graduation A Little More Personal

June 11, 2018 No Comments Amanda Sale Multi Media

High School Graduation High School Graduation is such a major milestone for everyone. From the parents and guardians that have put in the endless support, the grandparents who cheered on for years, and the countless hours and hard work the graduates themselves have put forth their whole lives. I have had the honor of watching 3 amazing girls grow. Not only in their education, but in maturity, responsibility, and dependability. They have become such amazing young women and I am so happy that my daughter has them as rol models. Creating Something Special The morning of their big day, I woke

Snow Senior Photo Shoot

March 25, 2018 No Comments Amanda Sale Photography

The 3 of us had been waiting all winter long to be able to have this snow senior photo shoot. It was becoming so late in the season, I never thought we would be able to do it. But Virginia being good old VA, it showed us one amazing day to take some photos. I give these to so much credit as the froze their butts off. As I was nice and toasty in all of my layers, they sacrificed their warmth to have very stylish poses. You can see the love and friendship these two have for each other.

Senior Photos

Senior Photos for a beautiful young woman. A couple weeks ago I was asked to take senior photos for this beautiful young woman. So many emotions flooded me with that simple question. Pride (in being able to watch her grow up and become such an inspiration), Honor (to have been asked to take on such an amazing opportunity that she will look back on for the rest of her life), Fear (that I will not be able to truly capture and deliver everyone’s expectations), and Panic (I have never photographed anyone else before and I NEVER consider myself a photographer).After

Getting Our Crafting On With Cricut

October 26, 2017 No Comments Amanda Sale Graphic Design

Time Out Stools There is NEVER downtime in our office, so why I decided to take on another project is beyond me. If you follow us on social media you have seen that we purchased a Cricut, and it has become a new addiction of mine. What can I design and make today? I even stay up and think about all the things. Sometimes I wish I could just turn my brain off. But with the inspiration of my little girl, and my eagerness to use my Cricut, I decided to do some trial and error I came up with a

We don’t just do Graphic Design

From the 1st year to the 100th year, putting on a convention is a ton of work. From picking the perfect date, venue, concept, interest, audience, and the list goes on and one. It was very interesting to me that after speaking to many, the general consensus is “Once you have done the convention… isn’t it super easy the next year?” Oh, how I wish that was true. This was my 2nd year helping out with GEXCon, so you would think.. “ok most of the graphics and marketing are already done.” And yes, for some items that may be true,

This is what I really do?

April 1, 2016 No Comments dennisw Graphic Design , , ,

Being able to have 10 min. of free time last week, I took full advantage. With the sun shinning and our pile of finished pieces pilling up I started snapping away photos. That’s the easy part right? Now time to write captions, slightly edit and re-size photos, and begin posting on our website. Then of course I can’t stop there, as I have to set up post for ALL of our social media. No big deal….right? But when you have Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Linkedin, Google+, and Twitter it is a lot to cover. Not only do I make sure each post
