April is our newest Graphic Designer and wrote this Graphic's Vision Statement below which the entire organization has agreed with and adopted for their own. April has a 1 year old and is a graduate of University of Memphis!

"We are smart, confident, well organized Graphic Designers.
For as long as we can remember, we have always seen the
world for its beauty. We look around we see beyond
the dirt, dust, trash or graffiti. We see the soil that must be
planted in order for our grass to grow. The GASP of air we
need in order for us to breathe. The scraps that someone has
lost along the way or has placed in a recycle bin to be used
again. The colorful reflections of one’s thoughts through art.
We see creations beyond our imagination. Our job as
Designers is to help everyone else see beyond their eyes and
discover the vast buoyancies of this magnificent world.
The joys of what each of us would find would be with
enthusiasm and eagerness to explore even more.
The world itself is a WORK OF ART!"

Sooner or later, every business needs printed materials - stationery and envelopes, business forms or direct mail pieces. Placing a printing order for the first time can be a bewildering experience without the help of an understanding, competent business printer.
Like all industries, printing has its own vocabulary and customs. Do you want your cards two-up or four-up? Full bleed? Two-color or 30 percent screen? What about the paper you choose; will it be linen or rag, glossy or matte? The trick to navigating those new waters is to find a printer who knows what you need when you're not sure.
Too many printing customers find themselves confused and frustrated from their dealings with printers. They are tired of dealing with a variety of suppliers all over town; all they want is to get their material printed and returned. A professional printer offers solutions and has the technology and systems in place to be a one-stop source. They're in business to make busy print buyers' lives easier.
Will your printer visit you at your office with paper and ink samples? Provide you with a cost estimate quickly and give you the fastest turnaround time possible? If you trade poor service for a few dollars, you may spend more of your time tracking your printing projects.
