Visit our IP info page to see your IP address, your current browser window size, and lots of other information that your browser shares with websites you visit. Why? Well, you almost never need to care about this, but sometimes—especially when trying to decipher server access of other issues—your IT person might ask you for your IP address or other information. So here you go.
Here is the style guide that we use for the content that we produce: Miller & Mattson Style Guide
PDF is the the ubiquitous file format, but it is finicky as hell. We can get much done on a problem PDF using Acrobat Pro, but when we need to resize a PDF and don’t have access to the source files, Iwe have had great success with the free DocuPub online utility.
Domain search and hosting
We work with Stickermule for our stickers, decals, pins, magnets, and more for tradeshow giveaways and shipping supplies. We use them for many of our clients’ work as well as our own.
Kathleen is a bit of a font junkie, although some might say she is a font snob. Her favorite place to browse and buy quality fonts is MyFonts. And don’t miss their What the Font service for identifying fonts you spot in the wild.
Whether for self-publishing clients, our own books, or for client booklets and reference guides — we use both Lulu and KDP (formerly Createspace) for our print-on-demand book needs.
Tech editing reference
It’s very niche, but we find the collection of tech writing and tech editing topics on the Write the Docs site to be a good resource. It’s maybe a bit over technical for many writers and editors, but if you are working on technical specs or engineering docs, this may be just the place for you.

Shirts and other merch
When we want shirts, hats, notebooks, lanyards, or other such merchandise (merch) for tradeshows and other events, our go-to vendor is Tryad Solutions. We have never been disappointed by their quality, and our rep there practically feels like a part of our event team. From time to time we have sent bids to other vendors just to compare prices, and are always happy to see that our tried-and-true Tryad is the best option for our budget. If you need merch, Tryad is the company you should contact.
Color Scheme Designer
There are many free color scheme generators available online. After trying quite a few, we like Perbang the best. Its UI isn’t as slick as some others, but we think it is the most intuitive and useful, and they have an impressive array of additional color and other tools.
