Production Update 3

Printing is now in full production for Manly Marks. Here are some quick stats of what has been accomplished so far:

  • 500 Man-cards
  • 1,000 Correspondence cards
  • 9,000 pages of the book (or 4,500 sheets)
  • 6,875 total impressions

There is still a long way to go and I'm only 1/3 of the way through the book pages. After that, the printing needs include coaster sets as well as the posters. Once I'm through all of the printing I will be able to start on the next step of production - trimming and binding. 

In the meantime, check out the video below for a behind the scenes of all the printing so far.
