NAPCP is children’s photographer Alice Gung Park‘s newest brainchild: a national association for Professional Children’s Photographers. NAPCP’s just-finished blog is a fabulous compendium of content, a must-see for new parents (and not so new) who are looking for photographers and information.

The National Association of Professional Child Photographers (NAPCP) is a member-based association representing and promoting the community of professional child photographers. The NAPCP provides a valuable platform for seasoned veterans and rising professionals alike to share their experiences, hone their craft and raise their professional visibility.

NAPCP connects parents searching for child photographers with its members by providing a comprehensive directory and informative articles on what to expect from their professional photography experience.

Alice had us letterpress her adorable design (we do print other people’s designs, yes)  onto our favorite lush 600 gram Lettra paper, and then die cut them … three inch circles won’t be lost in a wallet, so cute nobody will put them away. The National Association for Professional Child Photographers launched its web site today, so stay tuned. It’s SO exciting and SO smart. Wait till you see.

Here is what Alice said about her cards on her blog:

Of course, the circle tends to remind folks to use coasters with their drinks, but I don’t care. I absolutely love the way they turned out…

Us, too, Alice! It’s really unusual for a letterpress printer to put down big solids of ink with little dropped-out type. It’s actually against the immutable laws of letterpress. But, as the famous California letterpress printer, Lewis Allen, once told me, “Sometimes you have to break the law.” It was worth the risk. Beautiful mavericks!
