During the holiday season, you might be receiving more cards in the mail than you normally do. But how many of those cards are printed by hand? One Rhinelander arts organization is an expert in doing just that. The technique is a combination of old and new techniques.
Daniel Goscha’s tiny printing studio has a cabin-like feel and smells of wood smoke.

Say you’re a scientist who studies lakes. How do you choose which one to to study? Chances are you’ll pick one that’s a pretty good size…like Trout Lake, or Crystal Lake. You might pick one with a lot of species of fish, or one the public uses for recreation. But what about the tiny lakes…the backyard ones so small they may not even have names, or the ones that dry up completely when it doesn’t rain for a while?
