Did you know that Amazon has a device recycling program?
01/24/2020

(Top)
Amazon is the master of smart devices, and a master at keeping their recycling program a secret. For example, their recycling program's website Terms and Conditions include: "You may not create a link to any page of this website without our prior written consent. If you do create a link to a page of this website you do so at your own risk and the exclusions and limitations set out above will apply to your use of this website by linking to it."

So, without providing this link, and to provide more information on Amazon's recycling program, we'll provide a link to a great article by iFixit that discusses the program: Amazon's Disposable Tech.




Are You Still Running Windows 7?
01/15/2020

(Top)
Microsoft Windows 7, 8 and Server 2008 support officially came to an end yesterday (1/14/2020). And, we've been upgrading computers and servers to the Microsoft operating systems that are still being supported. But, if you didn't upgrade and are still running Windows 7, we don't think that it's necessary to panic. For example, this article at Forbes states the case for not panicking:

Microsoft Warns Windows 7 Is Dangerous To Use.

Or, another article from TechRepublic:

What to do if you're still running Windows 7.



From the information that we're seeing, it's important to move from Windows 7, but it's not necessary to panic and shut down your computers if it's not done immediately.


Winterize Your Epson Printer
11/23/2019

(Top)

Every year about this time, we have Epson wide-format printer users mentioning clogged heads.

The primary cause is a lack of humidity in the air — because winter heating systems dry the air to a point below optimum operating humidity. The specification for operating humidity for Epson SureColor and Stylus Pro printers is between 40 to 50 percent. In an environment with forced air heat, the humidity level can easily drop below 20 percent. A simple solution is to add a small portable humidifier in the room with your Epson printer. It will help to keep your printer running smoothly and it will provide a healthier environment, too.

Click here to see the humidifiers and related items that we offer (the Swiffer is in the list because the printers don't like dust, either).

(Top)



Double Dog Studios Open House. St. Joseph Rectory. Reimagined.

Double Dog Studios is formally opening with an open house on Saturday, November 30, 2019 from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Dave and Pat Klug are dedicating the studio's galleries to Dave's paintings, drawings, and whimsey. Meet Dave and Pat, hang out and have a cookie and a beverage.

Double Dog Studios is located at 317 Second Avenue, Carnegie PA, 15106. It was once a part of the St. Joseph German Church complex (the church was destroyed by a fire in 1981, but the rectory was untouched). It is now owned by Dave and Pat Klug who have been bringing the building back to life using it as it once was - a living, working and gathering space. Three gallery areas, a store/gallery, a kitchen that will spotlight tastings and guest chef dinners, plus meeting and workshop areas are just part of what the Klug's have planned for the former rectory.

To learn more about Dave visit daveklug.com, and Pat visit patklug.com. And, follow Double Dog on Instagram @doubledogstudios. If you are interested in discussing a potential show or event at Double Dog, please contact Dave or Pat.






Hahnemühle Introduces the Natural Line
10/24/2019

(Top)



Today, Hahnemühle introduced their Natural Line of papers at Photo Plus in New York, and we've added these papers to our website. Per Hahnemühle, "It focuses on FineArt inkjet papers made from unique raw materials: bamboo, hemp and agave. The plants that provide the cellulose require minimal maintenance, grow quickly and don’t need any pesticides. Their rapid growth means that more cellulose can be produced on the same cropland than with other raw materials, and they also require much less water, helping to save valuable resources and protect the environment."

The Natural Line papers can be found at this link. And, you can find information on Hahnemühle's Green Rooster Initiative, their commitment to our environment, at this link.

If you would like printed samples of the Natural Line papers, please call our office.

"Exposed" at the Gilberti Fine Art Studio and Gallery
09/23/2019

(Top)
The Gilberti Fine Art Studio and Gallery in Coraopolis, PA is presenting the Polaroid image transfer work of Pittsburgh photographer Tom Gigliotti from October 1 through December 30, 2019, with an opening reception on Friday, October 4th.

This exhibit presents the results of Tom Gigliotti's work in converting photos done with Type 59 Polaroid film to digital prints. The exhibit shows work that has gone from the original Polaroid film to an intermediate Teslin Synthetic receptive substrate, to the final print and then to the digital print.

Mr. Gigliotti's conversion process results in one-of-a-kind images that reflect the techniques of the process. It's a creative process that's done by hand and by eye and that doesn't depend on the digital tools that are frequently used today.
