3...2...1...BLAST-OFF September 03 2009
We just found out that we'll be designing and printing an 8.5" x 11" document that will be traveling into outer space. That's right! We were contacted by Washington University this week with a request to make a print containing an image of James S. McDonnell. He's the founder of McDonnell Aircraft Corporation, headquartered in St. Louis, and now known as Boeing. They just celebrated their 70th anniversary and the print we're making celebrates McDonnell's legacy. The print will be signed by astronauts, folded and stuffed into a bag, loaded onto the Shuttle, and launched at NASA HQ on September 15th.
We're printing on a 100% cotton, archival paper provided by Stephen Kinsell Fine Art Papers.
