I have worked as a representative of various Maine printing companies for over twelve years. I have worked directly with galleries, museums and historical societies to produce full-color exhibit catalogs and brochures. My clients have included The Farnsworth Art Museum and Wyeth Center, Elan Fine Arts, The Caldbeck Gallery, The Center for Maine Contemporary Art, Alan Magee, Jamie Wyeth, Frederick Kellogg, Linden Frederick and The Maine Historical Society, as well as prestigious Manhattan galleries such as Forum Gallery, Alan Stone Gallery, Katherina Rich-Perlow Gallery, Jason McCoy Gallery and Leo Kaplan Gallery. During this experience I became acutely aware of the financial restraints that prohibited most small Maine galleries, museums, and historical societies from being able to produce their own exhibit catalogs, color accurate newsletters and mailings and self published books. Because quantities are typically small, the per-unit cost is often out of range. I founded Custom Museum Publishing LLC in 2005 to specifically address the needs of small galleries, individual artists, museums, self publishing authors and historical societies. Along with our revolutionary digital printing technology and a state-of-the-art bindery process, I have assembled a full-service team of experts dedicated to providing affordable and elegant printing, publishing, art website design and bulk mailing services geared to meet the needs of our customers. It's been wonderful to be able to build a business around the market that I most enjoy, and to be able to fill an important need.
