So proud to have helped Austin Child Guidance Center! Their big fundraiser concert is Aug 27th at Moody Theater. Buy a ticket and hear another true “Austin Original,” Alejandro Escovedo perform. To support ACGC, we printed promotional posters and event invites (and handled the mailing as well). Big shout-out to ACGC for providing affordable and accessible mental health services to children throughout Central Texas.
Recently, we had the opportunity to design and print signage for the Skyline Theater at the Long Center. Our designer, Justin Espinosa, crafted this signage to help direct concert-goers during their visit and enhance their experience. Like all good wayfinding signage, this work catches the eye, informs and reflects the feel of the venue. And with so many talented acts performing here, we are happy to help the Live Music Capital live up to its billing.
If you visit Skyline Theater and see the Goo Goo Dolls and Collective Soul on September 11th you can take a look and see the signage yourself!
The possibilities are endless when it comes to printing, as demonstrated at the 2016 NeoCon show in Chicago. When MooreCo, Inc. was placed in a 10×20 booth, they turned to Miller IDS to transform that space through graphics. We were delighted to print Rex’s great design creating the illusion of a more open space, complete with a sunny landscape and even a playground to simulate a working classroom environment.
“Miller IDS really gave the booth so much more atmosphere and depth – 5 out of 5 stars for me! From the get-go, you worked with us to steer us towards the most ideal material/substrate. Even before we really knew what we wanted.You showed up conveniently here at our office to show us the samples, you stayed within our desired budget, your execution of the prints were spot-on, and the rolling cases you threw in for easy transport were the cherry on top. Plus you guys totally nailed the color we were after! Couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Seriously. Thank you so much!”

We are SO excited about the arrival of our iconic and much-loved sign at our 7th Street location today!
As the sign had been serving our downtown location for years, it needed a bit of sprucing up! We used the move east as an opportunity to freshen it up before bringing it over. So many of our customers have been asking about it; we were pleased to know everyone else loved it as much as we do and we’re so happy it’s back!
It’s busy both inside and outside today, but we are always glad to see you, so stop by soon to say check out the sign, get a cup of coffee or just say hi!
Our August artist, Heidi Miller Lowell, is a long-time Austin resident. First teaching in our public schools, she then launched the town’s beloved Artery, which offers an art collective, summer camp and and provides nursing home classes in art.
The Artery’s goal is “for each artist to come away from each lesson with a sense of joy and desire to create more art“. Heidi’s extensive reading of current brain research has informed the Artery’s teaching philosophy, believing that just as stress makes brain waves more active and agitated, art calms them. The school concentrates on product over process and goes out to many of the area’s elder care homes regularly.
Heidi feels art is an expression of being alive; its creation is an outlet for all the joy, hope, sadness and love in one’s heart. Though she has used multiple media, watercolors are her favorite medium at this time; watercolors require that you release some control, which she finds meditative. She paints whatever inspires her, often from nature. “Pelican”, featured here is a delicately beautiful rendering of the bird, whose meaning as a spirit animal connotes confidence and calm.
Printing this and other works at Miller IDS, Heidi enjoys coming in as she feels “everyone is so nice, down to earth and friendly – very Austin! – and Dana has been so helpful with my prints”. More of Heidi’s work may be enjoyed on the Artery’s website.
