Philadelphia Print Shop West

Despite my best intentions, I have just been too swamped with all the things involved in setting up the new shop in Denver to be able to write any blog postings. Next week I should be able to get have a print related post, but just to get something up, I'll give a brief report on my efforts here in Denver.

We got into our new space at the beginning of September. It is a terrific space located in the Cherry Creek North section of Denver (2819 E. 2nd Ave). The previous tenant left their "slat wall" system, which isn't really our "ye olde printe shoppe" style, but it is very versatile and will work fine.

The first week or so I had to clean out the stuff that was left, get some furniture in the shop, get the walls painted, etc. etc. Then Jon arrived with the initial shipment of inventory from Philadelphia. Jon had taken our "Denver" inventory to an antique show in Minneapolis and then drove on to Denver. Long drive for Jon, but now I have inventory!

The next few weeks will involve getting print racks, plan files, unpacking and getting things ready for our grand opening. As I will be exhibiting at the San Francisco Antiques Show in late October, our grand opening won't be until November 13th. If anyone is in the Denver area, I hope you will stop by! Or if anyone has any questions about the new shop, feel free to call the new shop number at (303) 322-4757.
