We’re busy this week with Meachele “Mothership” Montgomery’s exciting new book about her recent hike of the Colorado Trail.
Here are some of her beautiful images taken on the (almost 500 mile) trek from Durango to Denver.
We’re working, this week, on the Spring newsletter for Piney Creek United Methodist Church. This expanded edition features Christmas news and photos of their renovated kitchen area. The kitchen improvements are important to the church. The ladies host fundraising breakfasts in the fellowship hall and needed a more modern facility for their project.
ISI builds the newsletter and adds photography to images and text supplied by the Church. ISI authored, maintains and hosts the Charge website.
ISI also produces the newsletter for the Alleghany Historical – Genealogical Society. The quarterly newsletter contains historical photographs, research articles and current club news for members. ISI designs and produces the entire newsletter for AHGS from concept to printing. Additionally, ISI authored, maintains and hosts AHGS.org.
Newsletters inform, unite and motivate members. They also encourage new membership and donations. Newsletters are effective, in any format- printed, emailed, or on a website. Online, PDFs work very well as they can be formatted for optimum appearance, security and load times. A PDF file will look and reproduce consistently, regardless of the user’s hardware or operating system. Text and graphics display and print without degradation in quality, and PDF viewers are free to the user.
The latest title from Star Route Books is Echos of Sparta Hi, a reprint of the 1947 Sparta High School yearbook, which was the second annual the school produced. The first annual was printed a decade before, in 1937.
The book includes all four High School grades and elementary school photos for everyone attending Sparta School that year.
The book is being re-published as a fundraiser for the Alleghany Historical Museum by the Alleghany Historical – Genealogical Society and is the first of several titles planned for release in 2016.
The 80-page, softcover book measures 8.5″ x 11″ and is printed on cream colored stock. It retails for just $12.50, and will be available at the Alleghany Historical Museum in Sparta, NC, when it re-opens in the Spring (March 31) and online at Shop.StarRoute.Net, and Amazon.
We will continue to offer all the of the same services at the new location, focusing on web services (design, development, hosting and maintenance), print publishing (page design, digital prepress, book printing), and television production (our existing series Silver Screenings, Alleghany Memories, and the upcoming Common Threads).
Our new location will bring ISI closer to several of our existing business-to-business clients, as well as new startups who might benefit from our print & document services.
