Professional Experience

COMPANY PRESIDENT, PRINTING, MAILING AND GRAPHIC DESIGN, PRINTING DESIGN GROUP

June, 1976 - November, 2006

I'm retired with a BA in communications and want to use the skills I acquired from 40 years in marketing.

After working as a newspaper reporter and doing public relations, I started my own business and ran it for 30 years. I oversaw everything from design to printing and mailing. Over the 30 years, I probably printed and mailed over 30 million pieces, specializing in rush political work.

Also, I became the go-to person who could understand the intricacies of the post office. With adequate planning, and using bulk mail rather than first-class, we could get the postage down from $.50 to about $.18 each, {less for non-profits}, all by taking advantage of postal software and delivering the mail to the right post office.

I had one client who I did many jobs with impossible deadlines, printing and mailing projects which other companies said no to. We have several officials who point to us as one of the key reasons they were elected.
