100th Blog - Not Out              

Today we are celebrating our 100th Blog post since we started, thank you all for your comments and feedback about the blog and more importantly voting for us as well at the Blogger Awards in which we won Best Blog Design which makes it all worthwhile.

So after careful thought of what we should write about in this epic moment we thought why not about our favourite subject, which is blogs.

Blogs have taken over from the diary to a certain extent but still have the same purpose and that is to express a view that your thinking at the time or to share something that might come in useful.

There are so many out there so how do you follow a good one and what should you look out for.

Well for starters the blogs you follow, you must  have to have an interest in, but it doesnt stop there, the best blogs are the ones where the viewpoint is an original idea or concept, it must also be kept up to date and relevant with the world as it is now as well.

It must inform and share knowledge and not dictate, and most of all not go on and on like a chapter of war and peace. So on that note I am going to sign off but please keep reading and keep blogging, after all in a 100 years somebody might find this in an internet archive somewhere and think wow Im glad someone took the trouble to record this, just saying.

The QR Code Garden - Chelsea

Its always great to see the natural world and the technical world come together and stretch the boundaries and this week showed what it could look like, At the RHS Chelsea show there was a garden that encompassed the 21st century technology of QR Codes and the natural landscape of a garden.

The results are breathtaking and just goes to show that they can both work in harmony with each other, to see the garden visit http://www.rhs.org.uk/Shows-Events/RHS-Chelsea-Flower-Show/2012/Gardens/Garden-directory/The-QR-Code-Garden

Fresh Help Comic Book Event To Be A Success            

Always the one to help local creative talent, we jumped at the chance to be involved with Ian Hines Dead Universe Comic Book Event.  What it did was showcase local comic book illustrators to a wider audience while raising money for Japan Comic Aid.

Our part in all of this was to digitally print various comics for the event  and how spectacular they  looked, what it hightlighted was not just the illustrative creative artistry within the comic but the quality and the tones of the print using our Xerox 700 digital press.

If ever a job was made for this machine this was it, as the colours lept off the page as you can see below.

Andy Gerlack from Fresh summed it up. ' What a great event, Ive known Ian for years as we grew up together and I am really proud of what he has done here today and that we could help in our own little way. I was blown away by the exceptional quality of the illustrations and then what we did was the icing on the cake to showcase it, what a fantastic result.'

Ian Hine from Dead Universe Comics said, ' Andy and Fresh were fantastic, we wanted to use somebody local and when Andy showed me what they produce I had no hesitation in choosing them, the print quality is exceptional and worthy of what we were trying to achieve, they handled everything so smoothly, a great bunch to work with and will do again.

If you  want to visit Ian's store then pay them a visit in Friars Square Shopping Centre where they not only do comics but trading cards and memorablia as well. Or visit their facebook page on   http://www.facebook.com/pages/Dead-Universe-Comics/411695270458?ref=ts
