So many beautiful things in our world.

Irwin Hodson

I recently had the good fortune to discoverĀ a printer called the Irwin Hodson Company. They were originally founded in 1894 (!) as the Ben C. Irwin Company. They’ve moved buildings during that time, but have been at their present location at SE 9th near Powell for over 70 years!

If you ever wondered where to get vintage metal signs produced — look no farther!

Touring the facility made my mind race with all the possibilities. Keep an eye out for an upcoming line of greeting cards and some large format macro photography.

Irwin Hodson also printed all of our posters, postcards, yard signs, and booklets for Tour de Hives.

The most fascinating thing about this place is the old machines they still have in working order, blended with gorgeous modern digital printers on a massive scale. They were kind and allowed me to snap photos! (Click on the below images to see them larger.)

Ladd’s Addition estate

I approached this listing hopeful that it would be a good possibility for one of my most discerning clients. It is hands-down absolutely gorgeous. From the gentle sway of the trees along the street, to the gourmet kitchen, to the third floor master suite… it’s a place you just want to spend more time. On the market for just over a million, please enjoy some photos. (I’d love to sell it to my client, but we will have to keep looking. Although there is a precious flower garden, she has more extensive outdoor space needs.)
