Welcome to the newly birthed Boxcar Press web site!
Just because we’ve been working on our new web site for most of our lives, please don’t feel obliged to go lovingly through every single section and then call us at 315.473.0930 to read us your favorite parts. You are under no obligation to send us flowers, dark chocolate with a 70% minimum cocoa content, or long e-mails to explain how pretty the new site is. Under no means should you allow us to bribe you into memorizing the jsp code, tattooing the urls of your favorite pages across your elbows, writing poetry about the new site, or mailing us hundreds of gold stars.
What we do hope is that you’ll spend some time, alone, with the site. Do you usually spend the Ides of March with your significant other or your family? Spend that time with our web site instead. Light some candles, put on some mood music (suggestions: Brian Eno’s Music for Airports), and rediscover us all over again. How long will this take? The new site is pretty darn large. Should you hurry through it in 30 minutes (which, to be honest, sounds uncomfortably rushed)? Or should you lock yourself in your room for two days, refusing to sleep or even eat so you can take your time? This second option sounds more relaxing and fun to us. And that’s what we’ll be doing this weekend. But it’s your call. Enjoy and happy printing.
P.S. Have you heard about the prizes? Five Boxcar medallions are hidden throughout our site. Find them. Send the urls to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re one of the first 10 people to do this, you’ll win fame and a very cool choose-your-press t-shirt.
P.P.S. Also, the first 50 platemaking customers to set up their new accounts and place a platemaking order will receive a custom-made Boxcar printing apron.
