  1. First some good news! We had an exciting day yesterday.   We ran our first 4 color order on the new JS Flexo and it came out fantastic.   Check out the great registration!   Also, yesterday was the largest single shipping day in company history.   I never imagined we would have the biggest sales day ever in a January, historically one of the slowest months of the year.   Great job everyone!!


  1. Now, the not so good news. After making it through 2020 without a case of COVID, a terrific accomplishment, and making it to January 19 (the one-year anniversary of the first case in the U.S.), we are feeling COVID crowding in on us.  We have had a couple of situations with direct exposure so, as we did last Spring, we all need to be very vigilant about our COVID protocols.   We obviously need everyone coming to work with so much business to run, but our top priority is keeping everyone healthy.   So, as a reminder, PLEASE follow the guidelines we have created to prevent an outbreak: 


  • If you are showing ANY symptoms of COVID (fever, sore throat, cough, loss of taste or smell) or have been exposed to someone with COVID, stay home! We will discuss with you the next steps as each case is a little different. 
  • Wear your masks at all times. N95 masks are the best and we have them available for anyone who wants one. 
  • Try to maintain a 6’ distance as much as humanly possible. In most cases you do not need to talk to someone within 6’ and if you must hand someone something please put it down, walk away and then let the other person come get it. 
  • Avoid congregating in close proximity of co-workers. We are closing the lunchrooms until further notice, so please eat at your machine or in your car alone.  If you must microwave something or get something in the refrigerator, please only one person at a time in the lunchroom. 
  • Turn the lights off when leaving the bathrooms so we only have one person in that small space at a time.
  • Wipe down multiple use areas, buttons, knobs, phones, etc. as much as possible.
  • Wash your hands
  • Avoid being in a vehicle with any co-workers unless you need to do so to get to work. If so, please crack the windows to allow fresh air in.


Please be patient with us as we continue to navigate through unchartered waters.   Due to HPPA privacy laws we cannot share details of potential cases with everyone, and every case is very fluid.  We care deeply about your safety and appreciate your concerns.   As soon as we have specific info to share, we will do so with anyone who may have been impacted.
