I recently ran into one of my favorite reference websites for print product sizing,, while google searching #10 envelope dimensions. After 10+ years of landing there via google, I finally bookmarked it. For your next print project, whether it be a CD carrier or web banner, I recommend viewing die lines and samples at designers toolbox. If you're in need of 'dummy text' they also have a thorough lorem ipsum generator.


Jessica Hische is know in creative and commercial spheres as a letterer, illustrator and type designer. Though I never saw these ads in print, her illustrations for Starbucks showcase incredible ability to bring words to life via typography. Jessica's portfolio is downright amazing. You experience words in as touchable, sometimes tasty, and swirling in motion. 

Jessica's work inspires me to take a second look at the client supplied word document and consider more fiercely the tools I have to tell a bigger story.
