While we work hard, we love it when we can step back and recognize some of the fun in what we do.
This Hagar the Horrible comic from January 7, 2013, has provided us with one of those opportunities, considering our clients often "Hook Whales" and then proceed to call Salem Printing.
The world of packaging and print continues to grow in complexity. As we highlight in our lead business article, segmentation of brand communications throughout hundreds of SKUs and multiple Lean production systems means short turnaround times, smaller runs and the absolute requirement for flexibility. This is why we focus on much more than the final product. Our product includes not only the physical piece but project planning and management, logistical planning and reporting and systematic integration of ordering, delivery, warehousing, distribution and invoicing.
When our clients hook that whale, it is anything but fun to be unsure if their supplier can handle it. But when you succeed every day, when you have the support of a great relationship, when the beautiful execution of a plan becomes visible above the surface... man that's fun!
So, if you ever have one of those days when everything seems to be going well, but then that rod bends over double and doubts about your ability to see what you've just hooked creep into your mind, give Salem Printing a call. We have the "fun" of reeling those in every day!
