A True Appreciation For Roy Grossman —Cagle
There’s also hope that Grossman will return to a printing company near you, an option he wouldn’t rule out (“after all, it’s what I know”). For now, he’s going to take some time, recharge his jets and decide upon his next course of action.
“[Sandy Alexander] has really been my whole career,” Grossman said by phone the day of the announcement. “I’m thrilled to try something else…I’m leaving with mixed emotions. I love the people and the culture here.”
Given the kindness and friendship he has always offered those around him, there’s no doubt he’ll be missed at Sandy. And it’s going to be a tall order finding other printers who will take up the cause of issues that impact your long-term survival. Any volunteers?
APROPOS TO NOTHING: We’ve found a fun way for the office crew or the semi-busy third shift to kill some time. Why not test the creative waters by entering the Post-it Notes “One Million Uses and Counting” contest, a global consumer video sweepstakes on YouTube (hey, there it is again).
The contest, which began in March and continues through the middle of July, is aimed at getting entrants to push the creative self-adhesive notepad and visually demonstrate the many ways one can use Post-it Notes.
Contestants will shoot a short video starring the sensational stickies and upload it to the Post-it YouTube channel. Creativity and intelligent use of different sizes, colors and shapes of Post-it Notes will be the judging criteria.
Grand prize is $10,000, with second and third places netting $2,500 and $1,500, respectively. The top 10 finalists will each receive a laptop computer valued at $1,000.
To enter, upload your short video to www.youtube.com/postitnotes by July 14. Winners will be announced the end of September.
LITTLE GUY: This writer hasn’t needed to purchase printing in quite a while, but when a poster was required to promote an in-store signing for my new novel, I immediately called a national chain of quick printers to help me out.
