Copy Jam! A Printeresting Curatorial Project
Just had the pleasure of meeting some folks up from Austin from Printeresting and they told me about an awesome event happening here in Philly tomorrow night (Thursday, March 25) from 6-9pm at Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction.
Mavea Water Pitchers - German Design
We happened by the Mavea booth at last weekend’s Go Green Expo in NYC and were duly impressed with their line of cool looking, affordable water pitchers. Since roughly 85% of all U.S. households have hard drinking water, products like the Mavea Elemaris pitcher allow consumers to make fuller use of their tap water and avoid buying expensive and environmentally harmful bottled water.

According to an industry report for Photocopying and Duplicating Services assembled by a research and IT data analysis firm called The Gale Group, over the course of the last decade "the number of quick-printing establishments was dwindling." At the turn of this new century consolidation in the reproduction industry had growth in copy shops at negative 5.2 percent from the previous year, while "the volume of shipments in the quick-printing industry was on the rise... up nearly 13 percent from the previous year." While the corner QuikCopy--the place to cut-and-paste garage sale fliers or print out resumes--was becoming a rarer sight, sales in the copy industry as a whole had been on a double-digit increase since as far back as 1994.
