In 2016, HOW Magazine published Collins’s article about everything NOT to do in a self promotion and get fantastic results anyway.

In addition to utilizing beautiful old paper squirreled away in quantities too small for commercial use, this tiny booklet explains what is stationery engraving. The booklet itself is engraved.
