How Your French Periodic Table is Made December 04 2012, 1 Comment
We are excited to announce a new collaboration and process for the French Periodic Table, our most popular print, recently featured in WIRED Magazine.
Hand-made is at the heart of our company, and when we decided to move away from digital on the print-side for the French Periodic, Grand Palace Silkscreen were the guys for the job.
Grand Palace is comprised of the guys who made Murfreesboro a place worth living in the first decade of 2000. They've printed all your favorite band shirts and posters and ran the best record store, haunted cafe, and venue in town. Lucky for Nashville, they've finally made the move northward, working in a shop not unlike ours in East Nashville. I've put a link to their Facebook down at the bottom of the page.
So they built a screen for our HUGE Periodic Table, and I heard tale it takes 3 men to operate the machine and get the print to the drying rack/every flat surface in sight. One run takes over their entire shop til dry. They also print the little metal tags on the back. And they supply us with Dr. Enuf when we come back to pick the prints up.
Our buddy Logan helped us make this video. The song is also very locally sourced. I'm the girl hammering nails at the end of the video. Please enjoy watching the Mr. Rogers version of How Your French Periodic Table is Made!

Had the pleasure of working with Josh Harrell at Nashville Nonfiction on a video for the shop. We were excited to see it included shots of our neighbor Jay and our in-house woodwork maestro Tassi-Ben.
The song "Hand-Me-Downs" is by our favorite Melbourne barmaid-turned-curator and Gatlinburg-enthusiast, Jemma Rowlands. Check out Jemma and her Wise Young Ambitious Men. This is the only song they've finished for their upcoming release, and we got lucky it was perfect for our video. We'll get you the iTunes link as soon as she puts more up. Nashville sure could use a voice like that.
