Brotherhood of the Lake

We received another set of contracts back from Glasstone Records, this one is for the band Brotherhood of the Lake. They are located in Plymouth, United l_ebf6f56f712645668d2a3417adf339dbKingdom. This band is considered metal/rock/hardcore. While listening to their press kit I definitely got the idea that they were a heavy metal band. Which it was great to hear for a change, since we’ve been receiving mostly rock/punk/country press kits lately, which of course is just as great! We like variety around here, music is music, [...]

Johnny loved our Acetal so much, but didn’t want it in white, so we had our Acetal material made in [...]

We don’t really suggest designs with very fine detailing however you can [...]

Rockin’ Wedding Pick!

This wedding pick is by far a staff favorite! michelleWe really liked how it is kind of like a comic type drawing. These colors turned out great on the white delrin because the bright white background allowed the colors to really pop. It was originally tested on Acetal which gave it a softer look, however, with these colors and the sharp detail in the lines it was better suited to white delrin. If we haven’t mentioned it before Delrin is great for fine lines, and intriciate detailing. The soft, smooth [...]
