A Perfect Bound Book

On March 10th 2016, we were contacted to print 100 perfect bound books. It was a rush order that had to be completed overnight and picked up by the customer for a press conference in Washington, DC to be given at the 9:00 am that morning.

Rush jobs are our specialty, I like to say “If you need it now, Call Heritage 1st!” As with most overnight orders, our press-men and finishing department had to work overtime, actually well into Friday morning. The books were finally finished and boxed up at 3:00 am and were picked up by the customer at 6:45 am in plenty of time to get to the press conference at 9 am!


The report addresses issues surrounding the Middle East, ISIS and Christians. Published for the Knights of Columbus, “Genocide against Christians in the Middle East” (shock & awe cover photo at bottom of this article) is a 280-page report that documents the dire plight of Middle-Eastern Christians, urges Secretary of State John Kerry not to exclude Christians from a declaration of genocide. Here’s the online PDF version:


Hi, Kevin Smith here again and today, typing about a rush order, how we printed it, ISIS, the Middle East, our Government and local issues too.

With so much strife surrounding the Middle East, there are limitless topics to consider before writing any article, I thought long and hard before returning to my keyboard.

Let’s see where this takes us…



Carl Anderson, supreme knight of the Knights of Columbus, spoke to a gathering at the National Press Club in Washington on March 10th regarding the report/perfect bound book. His speech emphasized the absence of the word “genocide” in regards to the slaying of Christians by ISIS, with his focus being on persuading Secretary of State John Kerry to issue a declaration of genocide.

The Knights of Columbus are seeking to protect and preserve Christianity and a Christian culture in the Middle East. The report was conducted in response to a request from the U.S. Department of State, which has so far resisted designating the terror campaign against Christians by ISIS and its affiliates as “genocide”.

Genocide is such a strong word, inasmuch as the report emphasizes the impact it would have morally if John Kerry would approve the use of it regarding ISIS. The mention of the word alone speaks volumes on the atrocities in the Middle East.


Heritage Printing & Graphics is led by man of strong convictions and a deep faith. He served in the US Navy, training and deploying with the SEALS. He believes that we, as Americans, must preserve, honor and protect the Constitution of the United States, and as such, must respect and defend the right to life of all people.



As I drive to Charlotte every morning, listening to WBT Radio: news and weather, rarely do they NOT report a murder, homicide or felony involving a Charlotte resident. Watch the national news and stories of murders, riots and acts beyond imagination are rampant.

I strongly support the efforts of our local authorities, government and military, but it’s difficult not to say “Why not here?” When do we look inward and address the issues in our city’s shadow? With the onslaught of civilians “rising up” and demonstrating against our law enforcement officers and civic leaders, why isn’t more being reported on the efforts to assist here, in our backyard? When will I hear more news stories on how US citizen’s needs are being addressed?


WCNC, a Charlotte news channel, daily reports on crime in schools and local campuses. The local news is full of citizen on citizen crime, local felonious activity remains rampant and necessitates attention from our elected leaders.


It’s easy to ask why, and even easier to “point a finger” and “play the blame game” but that rarely finds resolution. I’m not writing to say “He did” or “Look at that” instead I’m pounding a keyboard to say “I SEE IT TOO” and offer my condolences to those abroad and on U.S. soil, wishing, hoping and praying that things will get better, people will flourish and rejoice. (no, that’s not a fantasy)

In light of the Paris bombings and even more recent Brussels attack, it obvious that we need to offer support, that’s what we, the United States of America do! But it’s equally significant to do more than report on the felonious activities manifesting in our own backyard. As a simple citizen, I exercise my freedom of speech and say: Please, to our local, state and national leaders, please look in your shadow (and mine) at the issues at hand, don’t be swayed by “the bigger picture” when good people suffer from indecencies that we can positively affect.

Please, utilize the billions of tax dollars, to manufacture a resolve for our towns, cities and metropolitans. Form a committee, build a website, start a forum, anything to show effort towards alleviating the challenges in our own backyard. Forgive me for holding on to “the American Dream” and believing in our great country, but I firmly believe, and always will, that there is a solution, together we can make a difference.

Cynical people say that if we are somehow able to fix it, something else will come along and take its place. To all the cynics I say; “You’re Right, and we will overcome that too!”


I will never forget the words of a dying man, standing at a podium, exhausting all strength and energy to deliver his speech at the ESPYs, Jim Valvano said:

“I urge all of you, all of you, to enjoy your life, the precious moments you have. To spend each day with some laughter and some thought, to get your emotions going. To be enthusiastic every day, and as Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Nothing great could be accomplished without enthusiasm,” to keep your dreams alive in spite of problems whatever you have. The ability to be able to work hard for your dreams to come true, to become a reality.

Don’t give up… Don’t ever give up!


Enough Said.

Grace: ɡrās/
noun: simple elegance or refinement of movement.
“she moved with effortless grace”

We were recently graced with the opportunity to be involved with a very special lady, Angela Williams and her extremely special little girl, Elle Grace Williams.

Elle Grace was born with “Club Feet”, a birth defect that affects 1 in every 1000 children.  It was through the birth of their daughter that the Williams first learned about club feet.  Angela and her family learned what strength and grace truly means through the life and spirit of Elle Grace.


We at Heritage were blessed with the opportunity to work with Angela and print her self-published children’s book “Gracefully”, where she shares the highs and lows of birth defects.  We are always proud of our work, but when something extra special arrives and we experience firsthand the love and inspiration behind a piece of work, we are euphoric and certain to share.

Gracefully” can be purchased from:
Here is a piece of the story behind the story:


What is Grace?

I wrote “Gracefully” as healing and encouragement for other parents going through the experience of finding out their child will be born with a birth defect.

From the moment Elle Grace Williams was born I was determined to hide her feet until they were fixed and “normal”. Angela Williams

Thank goodness for Brandy Cardarelli, our friend and photographer, I had left the room and Brandy removed a blanket capturing Elle in the warm filtered light of May.  It’s one of the few images we have of Elle’s feet from those first 6 days of life.  I wasn’t comfortable showing anyone what they really looked like.  I was hiding what I thought wasn’t perfect.

But she was perfect.

Thank you Brandy for being able to see what I couldn’t yet.  I was a mom who believed I could only show the world perfection.  I wasn’t able to see yet what only she could be.  And already was.  A perfect human being all her own. Full of grace.

But the real story began when we met with OrthoCarolina.  As we began to learn what it would take to correct her feet, a team of talented doctors spread hope.

The moment we met Dr. Christian Clark we knew he and his team would help our daughter – and there was a moment, when he smiled, when everything felt better.  We knew we would all be fine.  And in that moment – the idea of “Gracefully” was born.  Through telling our story I was able to bravely share Elle’s condition and display her strengths.  She was becoming a beautiful little girl.  Full of promise.

And that’s what really mattered.

One day I sat outside Elle’s room while she napped, my back up against the wall, and wrote “Gracefully”.  The words came easy.  They were crisp, clear.  I was the subject-matter-expert.  It felt monumental to get them down on paper: they were the words I had needed months before.

But how would I share this story?

At Elle’s next appointment, encouraged by Brett, I told Dr. Clark what I was up to.  He was excited.  He got it: I wanted to help other parents.

But did I have enough grace to create something extraordinary?

I looked to my children.  Elle was taking on the journey herself – showing me where pure grace comes from:
