March is Women’s History Month, but it’s also PrintHerStory Month for Girls Who Print. Our own Nanette Keir was thrilled to be included in giving her thoughts on her journey through print and what mentors she has had to help her navigate her career through the printing industry. Print/Empower Long and Prosper!
Sometimes I come across a chart that has historical implications that I never realize until I look it up on the web.
This wheel chart for Polak’s Frutal was created as a converter for Imperial to Metric, but it’s the back story in the company that held my interest. Polak’s Frutal was incorporated in 1914 in Holland. They manufactured and sold essential oils, perfumes, and flavoring extracts in their plant. In anticipation of Holland being invaded by the Germans during World War II, family members moved to the United States in 1939-1940. They brought their knowledge of manufacturing their formulas with them. Holland was invaded and, the Germans seized their plant. But because the family had immigrated here, they continued to thrive in the United States.
There aren’t too many times that a chart has an immigration story attached to it.
We thought it would be nice if you could watch the progress of our Christmas Card traveling through our plant. From Kelly’s design and construction to printing, die-cutting, and bindery. Everyone at American Slide Chart | Perrygraf wishes you a happy and safe holiday season.
Who doesn't love watching multiple Pop-Ups POPPING simultaneously? Our littlest fan, Claire, loves watching our Pop-Ups in action! It appears their adorable pet dog Duncan does too!
A big thank you to Claire and her parents for letting us share this fun video.
We love cartoons! We created Multiplication and Division Slide Charts for EZGrader featuring Scooby-Doo. The bright graphics make it a wonderful interactive math flashcard. The slide chart has a locking mechanism that prevents the slide from falling out. It also has a larger thumb-cut area to make it easier to pull. We were so happy to partner with EZGrader to create these fun charts.

Read To A Seed came to us to help create two fun tools to help children read. Their goal is to make daily reading time more interactive.
We first helped them create a wheel and growth chart to go into their Literacy Kit. The Kit includes a plant to grow, a spout for watering, a guide wheel and a growth chart for keeping track of your learning and growth of your plant.
They were so pleased by our work that they asked us to create an ABC Learning Guide. The guide is a slide chart with multiple slides containing the alphabet. You insert a card into the slide chart and begin practicing the name and sound of a letter. Each letter has a fun graphic that represents the letter. The back of the chart comes with a tracking system that allows you to keep track of what you have learned.
Both the Growth Guide and the ABC Learning Guide come with areas for children to p...
