The topic of green energy is one that has evoked much passion as of late. How should we get our energy? What should we do with these resources? How much should we pay for our usage? These are all questions that have been thrown around, yet progress towards more sustainable forms of energy has been considerably slower than one would expect in 2012. The industry, as a whole, seemed to need a little bit more “oomph”. So the big businesses we often love to hate (or hate to love) have... Read The Rest →
Here at Parisleaf we’re into all kinds of things – from award-winning Graphic design (Yes, Maria, I am talking about you) to stellar playing of the Australian didgeridoo (Kudos, Chad Paris). While we dedicate pretty much all of our time to producing web and print materials that exceed client expectations on a myriad of levels, that doesn’t meet we don’t know a thing or two about camping. Green camping, that is. So, need a quick refresh on the tricks of the trade? Yearning for some simple green tips to make... Read The Rest →
If you haven’t noticed, Gainesville is quite the bustling city. From the world-renowned University of Florida to the offices of Parisleaf Printing and Design, the city of Gainesville is always doling out its fair share of cerebral excitement. So it should come as no surprise that Gainesville has been recognized as a global leader in solar energy usage. In fact, our humble city has bested many other top cities and countries from around the world when it comes to solar energy implementation.
A printer I work with sent me a case bound, digital on-demand book printing sample his company had produced. I am impressed. My client needs to print and bind 100 copies of a case bound accounting textbook, a press run that would probably be close to the make-ready (set-up) waste for the larger, assembly-line perfect binding equipment that most book printers use.
It seems as though every day we are introduced to new set of sites and apps that are keen on making a portion of our lives increasingly “social”. There are apps like Foursquare that let you check-in at varying locations, cluing your followers and friends in on your whereabouts. Sites like YouTube have fostered a personal “vloging” revolution, allowing members to record and broadcast the most trivial aspects of their lives. Like it or not, social media is here to stay. Its presence is expected to increase exponentially in the... Read The Rest →
Jim Rohn, an established motivational speaker, once stated, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” It’s a bold statement, yet when you think about it, Jim’s right. As you travel through life you are forced to interact and develop relationships with people of all backgrounds. As you create strong ties with individuals, the identity they embody has great potential to strongly influence your actions and belief system. A part of them becomes you, essentially. So it’s only smart that you select people who... Read The Rest →
Admit it. There’s nothing cooler than unwrapping the latest tech gadget. Over the past couple years we’ve grown accustomed to seeing hoards of loyal individuals camping out in front of their favorite stores before product releases. Many of us have engaged in online bidding wars to grab a tech creation at a lucrative price. Whether you think such behavior is over-the-top or just plain fun, tech toys are here to stay. But what really gets us going here at Parisleaf are technology innovations that work overtime to help Mother Nature.... Read The Rest →
