hey, I'm Nina!

I mean, there's got to be something in between print-on-demand services, multi-million dollar design agencies, and super expensive pre-press houses, right?

(Spoiler alert: there is!)

After nearly 10 years in consumer print and packaging, I started Hound & Otis to give independent businesses all the same value the brand-name packaging giants have.

I spent those years immersed in the industry, exploring all the secrets and strategies behind award-winning ink and paper, to make your wildest dreams a print-ready reality.


YOUR PERSONAL INK AND PAPER WHISPERER, HERE TO SERVE HIGH-QUALITY PRINT AND CUSTOM PACKAGING ON YOUR TERMS. 

HOUND & OTIS IS THE PRINT STUDIO FOR INDEPENDENT BUSINESS OWNERS WHO WANT THEIR BRAND TO MAKE AN UNFORGETTABLE FIRST IMPRESSION.

It's all About Balance

Well-executed print is a beautiful balance between art and science. I live for it—pushing the envelope of design and technique to create something amazing.

You know the feeling when you pick up something extra fancy? Ever have that feeling about a business card? You can now.

Sprinkle in gold foil, soft-touch varnish, and a pillowy impression on an extra thick cardstock? You’ve got luxury vibes to the max.

Few things can communicate your brand feels better than color. Clearly expressing your brand colors and accurately managing them sets you up for success in the long run.

I speak printer so your brand works perfectly on paper.

do you...

PREFER A QUALITY, TAILORED SOLUTION OVER A HASTY ONE,

then we'll be a  grea t  fi t!

You’re in the hands of a print expert, who deeply cares about quality and exceeding your expectations. Expect a new No.1 fan (and someone who gets you), even if we never meet face-to-face.

When I’m not geeking over gold foils or deep impressions, catch me: listening to true crime podcasts or enjoying a homemade never-ending pasta dish.

You’ll also find me playing board games with my little family (that features an antique-loving Hoosier boy, a hound—who’s nothing but legs—and Otis).

Capturing your vision doesn’t end with your product. It guarantees strategy and support through the whole process.

My passion for print flows directly into your brand assets, meaning you never have to worry about receiving a piece that isn’t right or doesn’t feel incredible in your hands.
