Vintage Vinyl with Spicher & Co.

We love seeing new creative uses for everyday products. So, you can imagine our excitement when Spicher and Co. came to us with the idea to use Record Jackets to package their rad, vintage-inspired vinyl floorcloths. 

Spicher and Co. started as a way to showcase the paintings of Kolene Spicher — artist and founder Mark Spicher’s wife — and are a high-end manufacturer of framed artwork and home goods. Vintage Vinyl (a division of Spicher and Co.) began producing vinyl floorcloths (or floor mats) that feature patterns and colors with a luscious vintage aesthetic. The company draws inspiration from historic, hand painted canvas floorcloths and vintage kitchen linoleum to create their groovy, fun products that have modern durability. Vintage patterns and vinyl records are both making a comeback in this blast from the past product.

Ja’Ovvoni Garrison R.T.A (Renegade Transit Authority)

This post was published and formated for an old version of the blog.

Last week, I hung out in the Skate Kitchen with Ja’Ovvoni Garrison and chatted about his new Cleveland skateboard and clothing brand, R.T.A.

Growing up in East Cleveland, there weren’t any skaters in Ja’Ovvoni’s neighborhood. Most of the kids played basketball or video games. Eleven years ago, he received a demo copy of a Tony Hawk video game from his local Pizza Hut. After playing the game, he decided to give skateboarding a try and quickly fell in love with the sport.  He spent most of  his time skating solo around his neighborhood until hearing about the downtown skatepark  left behind by the Gravity Games organizers in 2003.

Jakprints Customer Spotlight – Casie Baun

This post was published and formated for an old version of the blog.

I’m pretty certain that if I were Casie Baun’s agent, she’d have the gig as the official spokesperson for an energy drink! It’s inconceivable to me how she does it all. She acts, she models, she writes, she manages a website, she contributes to a variety of musical projects and still finds time to hop around the country working horror movie, comic and sci-fi conventions.  (This blogger needed a nap after simply listening to her upcoming schedule.)
