Peter Schrager Updated Mar 27, 2013 11:30 AM ET We’re through the first wave of NFL free agency and are little more than a month away from the NFL Draft. With roster needs a bit clearer for all 32 teams, it’s time to update our mock draft. If you disagree with me on any of your teams’ picks…
Virginia is full of many antiquities and has much history from Jamestown to the Civil War. In addition to these many unique historical attributes, another one is the seldom known fact that former Governor Wilder used to work in Richmond as a letterpress operator in his youth.
Dave Clinger, a passionate letterpress collector and enthusiast, who donated most of his letterpress collection to the Valentine museum, noted that one of the presses in his collection was similar to one that Wilder used. It is believed that Wilder confirmed it was similar to the model he used. Interestingly enough, Richmond has grown in this respect as well as being Virginia’s most well known town for letterpress printing. Companies like Page Stationery have helped fuel the resurgence in letterpress for wedding invitations and stationery products using these older presses. Just search for letterpress Richmond or letterpress Richmond Va and you can find them quickly.
So not only was Governor Wilder Virginia’s first black Governor he was probably the first letterpress printer who served as Governor.
This new Richmond restaurant looks really nice after spending what appears to be hundreds of thousands of dollars on renovating the old Edible Garden. There was a veil of secrecy during the construction so I hope to see fireworks on opening night. We will keep you posted on the particulars after opening. Please let the food be as good as it looks!
Looking for a baby shower invitation? A new line was released by designer Page Stationery. This new line of shower invitations is unprecedented because of its simplicity and sophistication and unlike anything Page has ever done in the past because this new line is digitally printed instead of letterpress printed.
Because they are not letterpress printed it really brings an entire new look and feel to the Page designs. For instance, these new shower invitations are duplex printed which means there is the normal printing on the face of the card and instead of just having the copyright or some such thing on the bank and wasting all that space. The new cards fill that space with great design. The design that is on the back of the card cleverly matches and compliments the front of the baby invitations or party invitation. This is just great for design because it gives you an entirely new area to work with and create with. Doing so makes these cards even more memorable and chic. These are bound to be a hit.
Probably on of the best attributes is the affordability of these cards despite the fact that they are duplex printed, it doesn’t matter. It is the same price regardless. Having a baby shower invitation card so well designed and printed on the front and back for as low as $1.45 a card is a deal! If you go to an even less expensive price point you give up some quality and design in my opinion.
Consider the Apple iphoto photo cards. These cards are letterpress printed and have a digital photograph as well. They retail for $3 each and your picture is digitally printed on them. There is nothing on the back except a copyright. I would much rather have a front and back design on a nice paper for $1.45 any day. If you are in the Richmond VA area you can get your invitations here. They have cards for a baby shower, wedding invitations and all types of affordable stationery.
What could be better than inviting lots of guests to your birthday party or baby shower at a great price point. These new baby shower invitations are an affordable way to invite your guest to your baby shower or birthday bash. That doesn’t mean they are cheap or of low quality in fact, they are just the opposite. Cheerful and colorful with great design.
If you’re having a big pool party for your son’s birthday or if it’s for a baby shower and you’re inviting all your friends and family, your baby invitations plan an important role and should establish the look and the feel of the party.
Of course, a nice looking and well-designed baby invitations sure sets the tone for an upcoming party like this. There are lots of different themes that you could use for your party.

Well another beautiful farmhouse goes up for auction so who has the money to buy a property like this? Not your average local business owner but probably the investment banker or hedge fund manager. What a great weekend get away this would make for the family. It is only about a thirty minute helicopter ride from downtown Richmond. All you need is a caretaker and you are set! This would be an all cash deal.
Near Richmond VA native and former Mayor of West Point, Burke Johnson, has released a children’s iPad® kids book called “Sky Pals”. Sky Pals is an imaginative story about our new friends Wendy Wind, Tommy Thunder, Randy Rain and Larry Lightning and their journeys through the sky. The book was first released in 1968 and was written for his children. Unfortunately, the original book was lost in a move and only sketches and text survived. It was only later that son Tayllor Johnson, having two children of his own, decided to put the book back to its original state and collaborate with his father to finish Sky Pals. He initially decided to release the childrens book as an ipad ebook for children. This way he could bring even more life to the imaginative characters. Surely this is one of the best iPad books for kids As for the story this quote probably sums it best:
If you are wondering why weathermen have such a hard time predicting storms and weather patterns now we know why. Sky Pals Tommy Thunder, Larry Lightning, Wendy Wind and Randy Rain have been out playing and it is hard to know where they will turn up next. It just so happens in the first Sky Pals episode that they come across Spreading Valley that hasn’t had much rain all summer long. It is so dry that Jack’s boats no longer can sail in his favorite pond without running aground. Breezing through on a sunny day Wendy Wind encounters Jack and his dilemma and rushes back to tell the boys. Soon thereafter a thunderous time ensues as Tommy, Larry and Randy come to save the day!
Sky Pals interactive version can be view best with an iPad or iPhone® and can be downloaded here at the App Store℠ a reading version is also available on Kindle. Mr. Johnson is a native of West Point Virginia. A printed version of Sky Pals will soon be released.
