laser engraved scrapbook pages

  This color-core cardstock is awesome for creating custom scrapbook pages. Featuring a tone-on-tone contrast, this hearty cardstock engraves beautifully.

Personalized cardstock, laser cut photos and other fun accent materials (we chose glitter foamies) come together to create a wonderfully unique keepsake for all of your special memories!


Find full instructions in this month's Sample Club.


 
 


 
 

Epilog Graphic Designer's Artwork on Display at AIGA National Design Center
Laser-designed skateboard among best submissions from last five years

Last year Epilog was proud and excited to be a sponsor of the Bordo Bello, a charity fundraiser hosted by the Colorado chapter of professional design association, AIGA.

Epilog Graphic Designer, Sean Weaver, submitted his board, Day of the Shred, and not only was it exceptionally popular among bidders, the head AIGA office has requested it to be included in a large-scale Bordo Bello exhibition at the AIGA National Design Center in New York City! Sean's board will be on display, along with the best Bordo Bello skatedecks from the past five years, from April - July, 2013.

"It was great to have the opportunity to participate in such a creative and charitable event as Bordo Bello," Sean said. "To have my board selected to represent this great cause is truly an honor. I am already itching to get started on my next design and I really look forward to being a part of next year’s event!"

The Bordo Bello is a charity fundraiser where artists design and create a custom skateboard deck that goes up for auction benefitting the Colorado AIGA. The money raised benefits their mentorship programs, including the VSA Colorado/Access Gallery, a local initiative promoting the power of people with disabilities, and the annual Robert Taylor AIGA Colorado scholarship.

Congratulations to Sean for creating such an amazing project!
