Five years ago, there was one person in the print shop. We had to hand-cut business cards and wedding invites with a straight edge cutter. We had to hand-fold brochures and flyers. There was one small production print machine and a very old laminator, and fast-forward to today, and Impact has added on a whole other edition just for the print shop.
There are three production print machines; there is a varnish and foil maker; we have two Duplo cutters to cut business cards and invites; we have a folder creaser machine; we have a paddy wagon that makes notepads now; and we have a brand-new laminator, and I think that’s just the beginning of things to come. Mostly, we print materials, so we get to help all the customers throughout the Illinois Valley area; basically help their businesses succeed as well, whether it’s marketing material, business cards or booklets or banners. And then it’s also great, we get to help Impact as a whole. We print their marketing material, so then we get to help them also showcase what Impact has to offer to help their clients succeed.
So, when customers come in, I can get their designs from the planning stage all the way through to the print stage. I’m also a print specialist here, so I can run the machines and fix the machines and do stuff with the technical side of things, also. We’re like such a union, our team. We each have our strong points and our weak points, and we know each other’s strong points and weak points, so we feed off of that.
When I have a project that I know I’m struggling with, I know I can go to my other teammates that have more of a stronger background in that area, and I can ask them for help and get the job accomplished, and vice versa. They do the same with me, so it’s a lot of communication and working together, and we have a successful print shop that way.
