Saturday, November 2nd, 2013

It is always a pleasure to see decent and capable individuals in positions of leadership in the stationery industry. Paul Wainman, formerly of William Arthur, is certainly one of them. I am thrilled to report that Paul has recently accepted to become the President at Kleinfeld Paper.

Kleinfeld, an icon in the wedding fashion industry, has just launched the first Kleinfeld Paper Wedding Collection to retailers.

Kleinfeld Paper is based in Billerica, MA and offers a wide range of design, print techniques {including engraving, letterpress, contemporary letterpress, multi-color raised ink and digital} and a number of price points in the Wedding Collection.

Learn more about Kleinfeld Paper by clicking on this Retail Link. On this site, retailers can learn about Kleinfeld Paper and also initiate an on-line application process. Once retailers are approved they are able to log into the retailer site where they can place, amend and track orders.

So, take action now and begin the application process to become a Kleinfeld Paper retailer.

All Is Lost

Saturday, November 2nd, 2013

A couple nights ago, Sheila and I saw a remarkable film starring Robert Redford entitled “All is Lost.” Redford still seems like he could rob banks in Bolivia or woo Barbra Streisand (no longer a spring chicken), but no old man should be subjected to the trials and tribulations he endured over 8 days (90 minutes film time).

I don’t think I am giving too much away, but the story line is this: A guy out on a solitary cruise in the South Pacific is awakened by the noise (and water) of a container that has rammed his sailboat. This anonymous container containing tennis shoes from China has simply fallen off of a container ship and shattered what had been an idyllic cruise for Mr. Redford.

The parable with modern civilization is inescapable: Our humanity is being destroyed by the faceless and autonomous march of consumerism. Imagine being beaten into submission by a cheap tennis shoe from China while enjoying a quiet retirement cruise? Redford has a most difficult time coping with the banality of the situation, but he fights the good fight and – for that – all civilization should applaud him. I certainly did.

Lovely.
