is hard to come by these days. Computers and fast, high-volume
printing methods make it easy and relatively painless to
slap something together, using high-tech printing and publishing
Now, don't get us wrong, we don't snub technology here at
Cricket Press. We have computers, and we use them often.
We enjoy being efficient.
It's the end-product, and lasting impression that we take
issue with on most things we see. We like to spend a little
more time on things, and use older, some say "outdated"
techniques to produce the things we do. 98% of the stuff
we create starts out with pencils, ink and paper... then
ends up being printed using good 'ol elbow grease and sweat.
Not sure what we are talking about? Not convinced? Next
time you come across something that has been screenprinted
or printed using a letterpress, hold that next to something
that has been offset printed or photocopied. Run your fingers
across them, hold them up to the light, feel the weight
of them. We think you'll soon come to understand what we're
getting at here...
Technique is only half the equation, though. Again, about
98% of the stuff we make is hand-rendered or hand-crafted;
straight from our little imaginations, down to our hands,
and right onto the page. Of course, it might take a little
longer, but we think it's worth it.
Email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
and explain what you may (or may not) have in mind. We will
reply promptly with any suggestions, answers and ideas...or
arrange a time/place where we can meet in person to discuss
your job further.
Unsure of what you want? No problem! We take pride in our craft
and will answer any questions you may have, while sharing our
own ideas and techniques. Almost anything is possible. We will
work with you, giving you the personal attention that your job
requires because we wouldn’t ask less for ourselves.
Once your project is discussed we will email you a job estimate.
This will contain a rough cost quote based around the specifics
of your job. Through out the project any and all changes to
the estimate are shared and approved by the client before moving
You will also receive a Job
Description and Contract that clearly defines your
project and the date the project is due.
To begin work, we only require a small deposit to reserve your
project on our work queue.
Proofs are made available via email and we will provide reliable
communications until you are totally pleased with the art. Only
after approval does your project go to print. Everything is
printed by hand, by us, here in our studio. Cricket Press is
only two people...so every job is given intimate attention.
We average a 4 week turn-around, from first concepts...to print,
on most projects.
