This week sure was a very proud week to be MD of the Printed Image. To coincide with our 25th Birthday and our 26th year in Business we had an open house where customers and prospective customers gave up their valuable time and dropped by our Lucan facility to see The Printed Image operation first hand… well that and the lure of a Car Valet and a Costa Coffee!!
The Factory looked great or should I say greater than normal thanks to a lot of hard work from everybody. The weather was brilliant, the Factory was humming and combined with the imminent long weekend meant there was a really great buzz in Font House.
From a customer perspective they got to meet the guys to whom they entrust their work to week in week out. Our staff got to meet the customers face to face. Heretofore many customers has just been an anonymous name on a job docket, now here they were standing in front of the machines on which their jobs get printed, or in some cases operating the machines where there jobs get printed!! Customers commented about 25 years being a long time in business and got to meet the two printers Terry and Jesse who were the original two printers from 25 years ago when the company started out with just five staff. Many visitors got to see area of the business they never knew we had such as Structural Engineer, Design or Installation. They also got to see some of our sister companies such as TAP Creations and Zest Merchandise.
We finished the week of with a Funday Friday for staff where 20 lucky people got their cars valeted and there was Cakes, Cola and Ice cream for all.
Given the success of this week it certainly won’t be “25 years” before we do the next open house !! Hope to see you then.
