Back in November I paid Mike & Fiona Snow, the duo behind the brand SNOW a visit in their new studio in the Trinity Technology & Enterprise Centre. The purpose of the visit was to check out their new space and to offer our customers a 'behind the scenes' of them making their laser cut Christmas decorations. But with a busy December in Drury Street, and starting a new college course in January my blogpost got put on the long finger. Now in mid-February a festive themed post seems a little inappropriate.
Luckily SNOW are super organised and orders for Christmas were started way back in August. On the day of my visit all that was left to be done was glue some cards, string some snowflakes, sand some reindeer and package wallhangings, for the last few remaining orders. The focus was on orders already placed for the new year.
Our regular customers will be familiar with Snow's Dublin Landmark series, laser cut prints and greeting cards of the Pigeon House, the Ha'penny Bridge, the Campanile, Baggot Street Lamp and the iconic emerald green Royal post pox. After the individual layers were prepared with the laser cutter, Mike showed me how the layers of their A3 prints were carefully spray mounted in a miniature spray booth and greeting card edges were delicately trimmed back with a hobby knife.
As well as a diverse range of products; Moroccan paper lamps, birch letter racks, acrylic photo frames, SNOW also offer a bespoke service, with many Irish business' using them to create unique signage, business cards, display stands and corporate gifts.
