BIS Publishers

by sbrothier & 2 others
This very attractively finished typographic memory game includes 25 variations of the letter ‘A’, each in a different letter type. Players attempt to find the matching A’s in the same letter type. The player who has the highest number of matching letters wins the game. Typographic information about the letter is included on the card, and a separate folder provides a general history of the typography. This is an enjoyable and instructive game for graphic designers and anyone who is fascinated by letter types.

iPad vs Magazines | Printing Choice

by sbrothier
Every magazine on the iPad also has a website which contains most or all content from each issue. For free. Additionally, the lack of subscription options creates a price disparity for magazine/app buyers. To match the magazine industry’s $4.5 billion annual print revenue, 900 million $4.99 iPad apps would need to be sold. (Or, assuming publishers could make $25 per issue per subscriber in advertising, they’d need to sell 54 magazine apps to every iPad owner, for $4.99 each)

Spoonflower: Print custom fabric on-demand

by sbrothier & 2 others
Spoonflower makes it possible for individuals to design, print and sell their own fabric designs. It was founded in May 2008 by two Internet geeks who had crafty wives but who knew nothing about textiles. The company came about because Stephen’s wife, Kim, persuaded him that being able to print her own fabric for curtains was a really cool idea. She wasn’t alone. The Spoonflower community now numbers around 70,000 individuals who use their own fabric to make curtains, quilts, clothes, bags, furniture, dolls, pillows, framed artwork, costumes, banners and much, much more. The Spoonflower marketplace offers the largest collection of independent fabric designers in the world. The site has appeared in the New York Times, Associated Press, Vogue, Martha Stewart Weddings, Make, CRAFT, ApartmentTherapy, Photojojo, and many other terrific publications and blogs.
