Funny Fridays: The Worlds Best Non-Existent Job…

I’m proud to announce the launch of our Funny Fridays feature post. As the title implies I will be posting something funny and lighthearted every Friday. It’s the end of a long grueling week and sometimes you just want to laugh and feel good. I hope that these posts do exactly that.

Our first entry into the mix is the 2011 Google April Fools prank. This year Google announced that they would be hiring Autocompleters. Auto who? Yes autocompleters. They setup a very professional and legit looking job posting in their Jobs section (excerpt included below) and included the following video to boot.

We’re hiring autocompleters for Google Search! Are you passionate about helping people? Are you intuitive? Do you often feel like you know what your friends and family are thinking and can finish their thoughts before they can? Are you an incredibly fast Google searcher? Like, so fast that you can do 20 searches before your mom does 1?

Very funny to say the least.

Great Examples of Stationery Packaging

Being in the business of product packaging is something we take serious and we love to see how our products are being used in the real world market. Most of our products do not standout in the market, such as poly bags and crystal clear bags, because they are just meant to protect and not be seen but our stationery boxes are a whole other matter.

We have very creative customers who put together some really beautiful and unique packaging for their stationery and gift products. We have selected a few of them and have showcased some of their work below.

Take a look, I’m sure you will agree with us.

Rifle Paper Co.

Rifle Paper Co. is a boutique stationery brand and design studio based in Winter Park, Florida created by Anna Bond together with her husband Nathan.

In the example to the left we see a very delicate and minimalist approach to packaging so as to focus on the cute Girlie Dog Set.

Anna also runs a very good and informative blog over at Rifle so you guys make sure and check it out as well as all the awesome stationery cards they offer.

FLYoung Studio

FLYoung Studio is run by Heather L. Young, a southern artist, who favors illustration, painting, murals, vintage fabric, rhinestones, and any project that allows her to use her dremel tool.

In the example to the left she is showcasing her beautiful Oak Tree cards in our eco friendly kraft boxes and wraps them in a chocolate satin bow. Very subtle and delicate design. Love the label on the back, great alternative to pricey custom printing.

Heather also runs a great blog with design ideas and insight into her process. Definitely check it out.

Paper Anniversary Co.

PAPER ANNIVERSARY CO. is a bespoke stationery and design studio headed-up by Sommer Stiles and based in Tampa, FL.  Our collection includes personalized stationery, cards, invitations, announcements, and paper goods.

Seems kraft is the new black as Sommer also uses our Kraft Boxes to showcase her beautiful creations. In the picture to the left Sommer keeps the design to a minimal choosing to wrap the boxes in a colored twine and adding a manila tag to identify. Yet another way to personalize and give it that personal touch.

Just so happens that Sommer also runs a really cool blog with insight into her process and shares tons of pictures. Check it out.

I hope to continue to share more great examples product packaging as I see them come through. in the mean time let us know what you think of these and please feel free to include links to your own work. Who knows you might be in our next showcase.

Congratulations Class of 2011 – Never Give Up!

Holyoke High Class of 2011 - Photo by Michael Beswick of the Republican

In the last couple of weeks many kids that I tutored while volunteering at the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Holyoke graduated from high school (Congratulations Guys!) and just like many other friends, moms, dads, aunts and uncles out there I am wondering how did this happen so fast? It feels like only yesterday I was helping them with their math and English homework.

Throughout childhood and on into high school life just seems to take longer it moves at a slow pace. Life gets busier after high school and seems to go at a more rapid pace and it only gets faster once you get to the work force. I should know I graduated in 1995 and I can’t believe it’s already 2011 my 20 year reunion hastily approaching.

To the proud members of the class of 2011 I say enjoy it. Take your time don’t be in such a rush to grow up. There is plenty of time for that.  I wish them congratulations, success and happiness. Also, I wish them patience because from here on out, life will move faster and get fuller and more responsibilities will fill up every corner of time. So when there’s something or someone that requires a wait, be patient with great expectation that there is a reward at the end. When you finally get what you were waiting for, it will be so much more precious.

“Just keep trying! Never give up, never, never give up!
Because the only person that can stop you is – you!” – Yvonne Thorton

Welcome to the Blog

Hello there and welcome to the JC Danczak Blog. For those of you who don’t know what a blog is here is a short explanation courtesy of our friends over at Wikipedia.

A blog (a blend of the term web log) is a type of website or part of a website. Blogs are usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. Blog can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.

Most blogs are interactive, allowing visitors to leave comments and even message each other via widgets on the blogs and it is this interactivity that distinguishes them from other static websites.

Well, now that I’ve given you the technical definition let me tell you how we here at JC Danczak intend to use our blog. At JC Danczak we pride ourselves in providing awesome customer service because we know our success hinges on yours. The blog will provide a whole new way to provide our customers with valuable information in the product packaging world.

We will be posting articles and how to’s as well as information we find on the web that we deem of use. We will also keep you up to date on what’s going on at JCDanczak.com including new products, holiday closings, specials and more.

Stay tuned folks, subscribe to our RSS feed, and feel free to add your comments and let us know how we can serve you better.
