French Paper Company would like to congratulate The Little Friends of Printmaking. They were our 1st monthly contest winner last July, and now they’re our 1st Annual Sample Room Grand Prize Winner for 2011, coming out on top like Ron Burgundy (from a movie TLFoP have referenced).
The multi-talented husband and wife team from Milwaukee, Melissa and JW Buchanan produced some of the most eye-catching prints and posters on French paper this year. We’re grateful to see the inventive ways they’ve incorporated a broad range of French colors into their designs and we’re always excited to see what they come up with next.
The Buchanan’s have accepted Jerry’s invitation to all-expenses-paid trip to Niles, Michigan and the scenic French Paper Mill. Think Charlie and the Chocolate factory, except Jerry sports a bald pate! Great work Friends!
