Heard about this historical book because +Ambrose the Printer printed both the book and release party invites!

" Mosquito to Orange" Book Release Party!
Sunday, June 26, 3:00 p.m.
5901 S. Orange Ave.

Learn the history they said could never be told!

Join us this Sunday, June 26 at 3:00pm for the release of our new book, "From Mosquito to Orange: The Making of a County" by Dr. Paul W. Wehr.

This amazing volume tells the story of Orange (formerly Mosquito) County from 1820 through 1892. They said it couldn't be done, since all Orange County records were destroyed in the courthouse fire of 1868, but this history was carefully gathered by Dr. Wehr and is now available for all to read!

Come join us for our book release and signing party, featuring a presentation by Dr. Wehr and Jane Tracy, as well as free A&W root beer floats!

I love reading about businesses with a long history. Startups excite me too, but there's something so interesting in learning how a company evolves through the years.
As I start work with Ambrose the Printer, bringing their social media on par with their word of mouth, I have to remember how important the color green was to them!

Ambrose the Printer in 1908.
Ambrose the Printer originated in Jacksonville with the great-grandfather of Karl Ambrose. Karl worked in his grandfather's print shop and later, his father's shop. The company's logo, then and now, consists of the letter "A" with a colonial-era man operating a Gutenberg printing press in the center of the "A". The company color was a dark green, referred to as "Ambrose Green". Back in the earliest days, in order to work as a salesman for Ambrose the Printer, you had to drive a green car. Mr. Ambrose's motto was that you could drive whatever color of vehicle you chose, as long as it was green. If yours wasn't already green, you were required to have it painted!

Ambrose the Printer Today
These days, we don't require our staff to drive green colored cars, although we are very committed to keeping our operations as environmentally friendly as possible. We use soy-based inks on the presses, recycle all of our printing plates and chemicals, and recommend recycled paper to our customers whenever possible. Ambrose the Printer was reopened in Orlando, by Karl and Dale Ambrose in 1986.

This articles addresses The Curse of Knowledge in #Crowdfunding, but it absolutely applies to obstacles I work to avoid in Audience Building. Too many hassle factors between you and getting a sale or new audience member to forget this. #newaudiences
