Do you have any cool pictures laying around?

Every year since 2006, we’ve printed a calendar that we distribute at no charge to everyone that we come in contact with. Hopefully you’ve received one or more in the years past. We usually have some sort of cool theme for the calendar. We have always used pictures that the Brandywine family has taken ourselves. […]

Have you seen the BrandywineMobile?

We’ve been looking forward to getting one of our vehicles wrapped for quite sometime. When we found out that In Depth Wraps teams up with the Forsyth Central High School graphic arts program every year, it was a no brainer for us. We immediately volunteered for the project. Here’s how it worked: #1. I made […]

Welcome to the Brandywine Team!

If you’ve been doing business with Brandywine for over 7 years, you might remember working with Millie Reed. Millie was with us for several years until she had an opportunity to work with her husband at a different printshop. That different printshop was Brigham Press. Recently, Brandywine Printing and Brigham Press joined forces, and Millie […]

How to know when to go digital or offset…

Unless you buy printing for a living, you might not know the difference between Digital Printing and Offset Printing, much less which one is best for your current project. I will try to clarify some of the different indicators that we use to determine which process is best for you. At Brandywine, we offer both […]

Are You on Time?

The older I get, the faster my life seems to move. I remember spending the weekend with my grandparents as a kid. After supper we would all go out and sit on the front porch for hours, until it was too dark to be outside. We would just sit and talk, or maybe my grandpa […]

What have you done for the environment today?

I consider myself a bit of an outdoorsman. My most favorite place to be is in the woods, surrounded by God’s creation. I hate to see development come in and destroy my favorite places in the world. I think that some of us think this way, and get emotionally involved when trying to help the […]

How much do you weigh?

Hold onto your hat for this one, I’m going to attempt to explain the difference between paper weights.  Not the kind that sits on your desk. No, the confusing labyrinth of numbers that come into play when deciding which weight paper to print your letterhead, or those flyers for the church fund raiser on.  If […]

Will you give me some money?

One of the things that I love about our industry (that’s the printing industry… incase you found this blog accidentally) is that most businesses need printing to some extent.  Some businesses realize that, and some don’t… we’ll talk about the folks that do. I am cheap.  When it comes to my money, I don’t like […]

Do you bleed?

Lets talk about bleeds.  Not bleeding… like bloody messy bleeding.  I’m talking about your design bleeding… you know, off the edge of the paper.  See, most people don’t understand that ink can’t magically run off of the edge of a sheet of paper.  Think about it like this, if the ink goes all the way […]

Are you an Expert?

Someone called the shop the other day looking for a “Printing Expert”. I never really thought about being an expert before. “Printer” was just a title that I shared with Benjamin Franklin and a few thousand other folks in my chosen profession. I wasn’t exactly sure what separated a printing expert from any other printing […]
