Besides being the managing editor of this blog, I'm also a drummer, a husband, and a father, not necessarily in that order. I love good stories, and great design, and I probably quote the Office more than I should but less than I could.

Brotherhood, Loss, and Remembrance: Mike’s Story

At the heart of Fracture are stories. The stories that make up every moment and memory that we see getting printed onto glass every day in the Fractory. Sometimes a story touches our hearts in way that makes us want to share it with all our fans. We hope it warms your heart and gives you a glimpse of why we love what we do so much. This is my interview with Mike. Mike runs a YouTube channel for men …

How Printing Photos Can Make You a Happier Person

Recently a study showed that eating chocolate could help you lose weight faster. Even more recently it came out that the report was in fact, bogus. We were sad. People are still finding it hard to believe that eating more Hershey’s will NOT help them shed those extra pounds any faster. We want so badly for the things we love most to be good for us too. Wouldn’t it be great if ALL the things we indulge in were wise …

The Photo that Makes Kelly Smile and Think About Family

Fracture is lucky to have Kelly Logan as a photography intern this semester. Whether she is photographing our products or showing us the photography work she does outside of Fracture, Kelly never fails to amaze us with her skills. She recently placed a Fracture order and we would love to share more about the story behind her photo. Tell us about where and when this was taken. I took this photo outside my sister’s house in Montana.  We were leaving …

The Adventures of Bianca the Intern

Mountains loom over the lake, yet the sky looms over the mountains. The branches of the trees are not swaying in the wind, yet the clouds appear motionless. A connection to nature and sense of movement can be felt in these photos by our spring intern Bianca. We gave Bianca the chance to write about her crazy travels in Alaska and Hawaii and why she chose to Fracture these photos. We took a boat tour (in the Glacier Bay Basin, if …

2014: Our Year in Numbers and Pictures

2014 was a crazy year.  And Fracture had some of that crazy ourselves this year.  We asked our CEO his thoughts on the adventures Fracture had in 2014. Here’s what he said: “Here it comes…that obligatory “Man! what a year it’s been! Let’s reflect on everything that’s happened….” post. Well, this isn’t going to be that kind of post. I’m pretty tired – just like the rest of the Fracture team. I just really want to take a long nap – like, …

Gazillions of Baby Photos: An Interview with Casey Liss

In addition to being the Marketing Director here, I’m a bit of a tech nerd. I’m not a developer, but really interested in app development, and the way Apple and other big tech companies grow and change. As such, I’ve become a big fan of the Accidental Tech Podcast. They really got me with their reference to the “load-bearing pinky” (about holding your iPhone to use your thumb to tap the top row of apps.) Recently one of the hosts …
