A design studio. A print shop. A combination design studio & print shop.
Sara Thomas | Partner
In 1984 not knowing if the world was going to end, Sara decided to take a chance on humanity and it’s a good thing she did. Who else would love The Cure like her?
Ben Gunter | Production Manager
The man, the myth, the legend. Ben runs the printing side of the Half and Half and is the master of all things ink & paper. A true renaissance man – Ben can expertly separate your crappy file, tell you what’s making that weird sound in your car, and cook a whole hog all while blasting Sabbath and doing a bitchin’ wheelie on his chopper.
Thomas Jennings | Creative Director
Thomas’ brain has been puzzling scholars for the past thirty years. A creative wunderkind, master chef, expert woodworker and an unstoppable ping pong force of nature, there isn’t a single thing Thomas can’t do. Thomas once ran a mile in 2 minutes. Thomas ate Chic-Fil-A on a Sunday. Thomas met John Stamos on a plane and gave him his autograph.
Nate Puza | Designer
Nate is the boomerang kid of the shop – working here first as an intern, then later as a pressman, leaving just to come back to work here again as a designer. His specialties include illustration, lettering, printmaking, art creating, leaf raking, bike riding, cat petting, hat wearing, writing in the 3rd person, and a killer chicken parmesan.
Marshall Thomas | Production
Marshall joined our team in 2013 after printing textiles for many years. With a background in printmaking from the College Of Charleston, Marshall has developed quite an appetite for Polar Seltzer water during his time in Columbia, specifically Cranberry Lime. He also prefers his coffee out of a Keurig.
Courtney Phillips | Studio Manager
Courtney is a lighthouse. Shining brightly, she guides your print job safely into port or something like that. Actually she is our studio manager but we would still be completely lost without her. She deftly handles all of the weird businessy aspects of the shop, and can package and ship a thousand gig posters before you can say “Sweet Home Alabama”.
Jenn Palm | Production
When I came back from the East last autumn I felt that I wanted the world to be in uniform and at a sort of moral attention forever; I wanted no more riotous excursions with privileged glimpses into the human heart. Only Gatsby, the man who gives his name to this book, was exempt from my reaction—Gatsby, who represented everything for which I have an unaffected scorn.
