California Printers — Geography Has Its Perks
April 1, 2008

OK, WE aren’t going to pull any punches here. California is a state of thieves. Dirty, rotten, shameless thieves. It’s in your blood; can’t be denied. People flocked here in 1848 to take gold away from mother nature. San Francisco started as a shanty town housing these crooks, and now it’s one of the most expensive places in the world to live. What kind of swindle is that? Even the lighthouse was torn down on Alcatraz Island in favor of a prison.

The Golden State, California, is a study in extravagance. It is the third-largest state in square miles behind Alaska and Texas, and has the biggest population with 36 million folks.

Peer Groups — Strength in Numbers
November 1, 2007

IMAGINE JOINING an exclusive business group that requires members to undergo a virtual audit of their finances, a club where you’re expected to share detailed information about company practices. Picture wanting to host a meeting where your facility is given a white glove inspection, followed by a brutally honest critiquing session by the other members of the group. Some people might respond, “Oh, I get the joke. This is what happens when you cross the IRS with a proctologist, right?” Nope, it’s what a company encounters when it joins the Print America peer group. Print America is a tightly knit fraternity of 12 privately

September 1, 2007

FROM THE time he was a young man, Tim Poole wanted to be in the position to make a difference in a printing company.
