Cougar Town

Subtitle: 
“The biggest challenge was working with Pullman Transit so it could maintain its regular route schedule while having a bus out of service once a week getting a wrap installed.”

The Job As with many small college towns, the City of Pullman, Washington, has developed a close bond with its college cohabitant, Washington State University. So it should have surprised none of the local citizenry when the city teamed up with the university to promote school spirit within the community by unveiling 18 Pullman Transit busses wrapped in WSU Cougar-themed graphics. The town sent out bid proposals for the job to a number of local print providers to wrap, maintain, and remove the graphics after three years.

Making Critical Prepress Upgrades

Subtitle: 
"So as we move into faster printers and bigger files, don’t we also need faster and more powerful prepress equipment?"

The economy continues to improve and our business has been growing faster than the recovery. As a result, we have recently bought two wonderful grand-format printers and are now looking toward a third. These machines print better and faster and do things I couldn’t have imagined just a few years ago. So, we’re set, right?

Well, no. As wonderful as these technical marvels are, printers are not capable of making money in and of themselves. It’s what we feed our printers – jobs – that makes us money.
