The last 24 years have seen many transitions in the printing service industry. Ted Hatfield, Production Manager, at Bartleby Press has adapted well by establishing new production techniques that have kept this print shop on the leading edge while other print companies have closed their door.
The print industry continues to thrive although not in the volumes that it once did. The Internet has captured a large portion of the marketing industry where print once dominated. Depending on which marketing expert you speak to, print if used properly, can improve online sales. A print company is expected to deliver more than ink on paper. Professional design, content development and mail delivery is mandatory for success. Short run delivery and rapid turn-around of full color brochures, postcards or flyers is paramount.Real-time conversation captured from Internet metrics enable business to deliver products almost as fast as they are researched the on the Internet.Ted has been at the center of this metamorphosis. Researching and purchasing new equipment is part of his continuing education. His attention to print quality and detail has been his trademark. His vision to embrace new technology in hardware and software pre-production printing has established our print company as an innovative leader in the Austin area.The success of Bartleby Press does not rest on one individual but it would not be the success it is without him. Ted is the quintessential print service manager at one of the few remaining locally owned print company in Austin. He strives to uphold our mantra, High-Tech solutions…Old Fashioned Service.They say that greatness is achieved over years of consistent and exceptional performance and Ted has delivered.Bartleby Press is proud to acknowledge Ted for his performance and the excellent service he has delivered to our clients over the years. Congratulations to Ted and a heartfelt thank you.
