I’ve been slowly building up my materials library over the last few months. I’d forgotten how much fun it is to make your whole office feel like a petting zoo of cool but random materials. It completely opens your mind up to infinite possibilities and a little bit of daydreaming on what the next project would be that would even let you use some of these random things.  Never mind trying to convince your clients to do outside of the norm and expected…

In my research, most places will give you samples for free, and even pay all the expedited shipping fees.  It’s almost embarrassing how much packaging and waste there is in just getting samples.  But that’s an aside.  One question that came to mind: would you ever pay for a sample?
