The Story of the Asterisk in the Tiny Prints logo:
During the early days of printing, feudal print makers used an asterisk as a symbol to indicate a person’s date of birth on his or her family tree. Since then, it’s been used to represent everything from a special note in a text to the sweet little kiss of a computer emoticon. Because the asterisk is always used to denote something special, whether it’s the day a person joined the family tree or an online kiss shared between friends, the founders of Tiny Prints placed the asterisk at the heart of our logo as a constant reminder of all the ways we help people to celebrate life’s special moments in style.
