OneSource Printing & Graphics — Kings of Queens
Four distinct departments make up the production capabilities of OneSource. OneSource Offset constitutes the company’s main printing department. The all- Heidelberg sheetfed pressroom is equipped with a six-color Speedmaster CD 102 press with coater, a two-color GTO and a four-color Quickmaster DI.
OneSource Display serves as the large- and grand-format department, handling most of the trade show and retail work, such as in-store displays for companies like French Connection, Sephora and Godiva Chocolate.
The company also has a design department, offering an in-house creative agency and a promotional products division. The promotions company, Push Promotions, provides everything from corporate gifts to custom concepts and sourcing.
OneSource’s 350 clients represent a full range of industries, including banking, retail, cosmetics and fashion. About 75 percent of this business is headquartered in the New York City metro area.
Eisberg also reveals that 2006 was one of the company’s best years from a profitability standpoint, due in part to a focus on a more efficient workflow and the integration of the EFI Logic system.
“Embracing new technology is what our business has been about since day one,” Eisberg stresses. “We are far ahead of the curve on technology. There is not much left for us to buy when I go to trade shows like Graph Expo.”
The company offers its clients Web-to-print solutions, and is developing a handful of Websites, including its online ordering site, www.cheapjacksprinting.com. Eisberg admits these efforts, in part, are to stay competitive with the emergence of totally online print providers. A full launch of this site is expected this year.
To foster best business practices from client to client, OneSource employs a grassroots program when new account executives are brought on board. A six-week printing program is set up for new hires, with a mandatory three weeks spent in the plant, learning everything from equipment capabilities to workflow.
