Dear Beni's founder, Nancy, is a designer at heart. She's also a geek when it comes to material and process. Thus, Dear Beni is adventurous explorers of process, always seeking new ways to push boundaries. Isn't discovery grand? Here's a glance at their processes:
- Designing: This one is most important. Dear Beni pours a ton of time and thought into their work. They design and refine each product. They carefully determine our supply chain and production process. Their efforts translate into added value for you.
- Laser Cutting: Dear Beni is obsessed with this process. It allows them to emphasize material, highlighting its natural beauty. They utilize state-of-the-art technology that enables them to offer laser-cut products at attainable price points.
- Hot-foil Stamping: The most curious metallics on the planet help them create inviting contrast. "Stamped" with heat, foil adopts the paper's toothy texture. There's nothing like the tactile differences between brilliant foils and matte papers.
- Embossing: Because they are so taken with fine colored papers, embossing is a natural attraction. It honors the naked material. This process applies heat and pressure to make a deep impression on the paper's surface. They love using just paper, heat and pressure...no ink required.
- Digital Printing: Most people view digital printing as ordinary, conventional, economical. But the digital world is expanding...one might argue it is surpassing its predecessor, offset printing. Dear Beni works with true craftsmen, forging new paths with digital technology.
- Hand Assembly: Familiar with that children's book The Day the Crayons Quit? Well, if I were a hand in this age of automation, I would quit too. Some things are better left to the human hand. Proudly, Dear Beni hand-assembles because it reaps countless rewards.
