Only those applicants that complete the questionnaire will be considered for a position!

*If you have already submitted your resumé then you do not need to do it again, we will match it up with your completed questionnaire.

Qualifications:

  • Extensive knowledge and experience creating and preparing files for spot color printing is required

Stuff You’ll Have to Do

  • Evaluate client-supplied logos and files for printing on various promotional products

  • Help the sales team understand technical artwork mumbo-jumbo from time to time
  • Hook up with our production department to answer questions about artwork status

Stuff You Probably Won’t Have to Do

  • Heavy designing. This job involves preparing corporate logos, simple designs and typesetting for a variety of printing processes. It is highly technical. Some actual design projects may be available from time to time, but it is not the bulk of the day-to-day work.
  • Work long hours regularly; while there may be peak periods where additional hours are required, we are firm believers in quality of life and that we should all “work to live” and not vice versa. Average work week is 40-45 hours.
  • Wear a suit, tie, khakis, or anything else that you don’t want to wear. You will also not be required to remove any piercings or cover your tattoos, unless they’re really embarrassing, in which case we will insist on viewing them.
  • Skydiving. We have a “no skydiving in the office” policy (for obvious reasons.)
