Getting Peanut Butter on Your Chocolate
I really don’t believe we have to put ourselves into one or the other of those buckets. No matter the name we hang over the front door, the fact is that we can mix up the chocolate of our manufacturing expertise with the peanut butter of the evolving needs of the marketing community that most commercial printers have always served anyway.
That’s what we’ll be talking about here in this new blog. I plan to share stories of businesses that are mixing it up, evolving and thriving. Look forward to hearing your story!
