In this economy, it’s more important than ever for consumers to know who’s behind the wheel in a business before making a purchase. Special event stationery and invitations are no exception, seeing that they can be significant in how they emulate what type of event is being thrown and can take up a large chunk of the event budget.

This is a small series that will be posted throughout the next few weeks giving insight into the business brains behind the designs and a little about my process, designs and why I do what I do.

What is the name of your business? I’m DBA Dingbat Press. Sometimes I get funny reactions and snickers from people when they hear my business name as they think I’m the dingbat (which in some cases I can be), however the historical reference behind the name is related to a printer’s dingbat, often used as ornamentation in typeset letterpress printing.

How long have you been in business?
Since December 2005 – officially – however I’ve been printing for about 5, and designing invitations here and there since 2000.

What is your name, title, and role in the business?
My name is Adrienne Berry. I am owner and sole-proprietor. My colleagues call me suzy homemaker, or the one-man-band because at this stage in my business I do it all: design, print, represent myself, take care of the house, love my kids and my hubby, be an accountant and gardener (when the spare moment arises).
