Bobbie has been with Creative Printing for over 16 years, which means she's been part of the company longer than any other employee.
Bobbie's been in the printing business for over 24 years. Her first printing job was actually in the building that Creative Printing currently occupies. She started working for the former occupants to "help out" at her sister's job and quickly found herself being hired on as a full-time employee. She didn't mind, though, because she had fallen in love with the printing industry.
Here at Creative Printing, Bobbie's experience is not wasted. She works in the bindery department and handles the last steps of almost every single print job we do. In any given day, Bobbie cuts and boxes business cards, folds brochures, cuts and stitches booklets, binds spiral and perfect bound books, and more! In most cases, she is the last person to see a job before the customer so she puts in a little extra effort to ensure that everything is looking good.
Bobbie says she does this because it's the way she was raised. "My parents taught me that when you're paid to do a job, you should do your best," says Bobbie. "I try to give 110% every day."
It must be working, because we can't imagine our world without Bobbie. With her vast experience and her dedicated work ethic, it's not difficult to see how she's build a career in printing. We love Bobbie but she jokes that some people don't like to work with her. Why is that? "They say I work faster than some of the machines!" Bobbie laughs about this but it's easy to see that she's proud of her experience and of her ability to produce top quality work for our customers.
Bobbie offers the following advice for anyone in any type of job: "Challenge yourself." She says that, by challenging herself to do a better job today than the day before, she is able to stay interested in her work and always be seen as a valued employee.
Next time you're in our office, say hello to Bobbie! That is, if she's not too busy running all those machines in the bindery department.
