Here, Pritchard explains more about herself, the business and its future.
Print Professional (PP): Tell us about your background. Where did you grow up?
Julie Pritchard (JP): I grew up in the city of New Orleans, which probably couldn't have been more different than the rest of the country. We had our own cuisine, Creole and Cajun, our own law, the Napoleonic Code, and our own language. Sidewalks were banquettes, a median (that patch of land that divides a roadway) was called a neutral ground and lagniappe meant a little something extra thrown in, like artwork in a print job. Of course, we never thought of ourselves being that different. I believe I was probably 15 before I learned that Mardi Gras wasn't a national holiday.
