We are excited to announce that a new book from Making Memories called Show & Tell, will be hitting a local store near you. This week is all about Show & Tell. We wanted to share some photos of the book’s press checks.
Here are some interesting facts about it.
Generally Gail and Jihae have 12 press checks per book. They last anywhere between a ½ hour to 2 hours depending upon how everything looks. To finish an entire book it takes 4 days. They run 24 hours a day with only 5 hours in between each check. Basically they get to be like on-call doctors without being paid the big bucks!!! They are on-call because they literally eat and sleep with their phone right by (notice Gail's grandkids came along). Once the call comes in, they have 45 minutes to be there for the press check. They check for errors in color, registration and make sure it looks the way it is suppose to.
Jihae is a pro at this. She can spot error in an instant. Jihae calls this her blessing and curse. So after being up for 4-5 days in a row, the book is finally printed and ready for you to ENJOY!
