It’s the Month of the Designer and we’re honoring our many friends in the design and visual-arts community.
One of those friends is Print-Tech, a commercial printing company based right here in Ann Arbor. We have used their services to print several large and important projects, including invitations for our Storymakers Dinner these past few years and (excitingly) our brand-new ROBOT REVOLUTION posters. (Click here to see them and place your pre-order!)
We’re always happy with the quality of what we have printed at Print-Tech, but moreover, we’re always happy with the people we interact with there. One of those people is Jim Ceely himself. We asked him a few questions about life and business in Ann Arbor.
How did you first become involved with 826michigan, and what resonates with you about our work?
We worked with Amanda Uhle when she was at the Ann Arbor Art Center and we were happy to support her in her new position as Executive Director at 826michigan. Print-Tech is in the communication business and shares 826michigan’s belief that strong writing skills are key to an individual’s success. The messages contained in our printed pieces are dependent on the quality of the writing and the graphic elements in the job. We’re excited to support the volunteers and staff at 826michigan as they make writing fun and easy to learn.
What’s your favorite part of life in the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti area?
The business climate created by EMU and U of M, along with the influx of new students, staff and faculty brings a constant flow of energy and new ideas into the area. There is a unique mix of “Townies” that have lived in the area for a long time, and newly transplanted people that are here for work or school. The opportunity to learn new things, to take comfort in our local traditions, and watch as new technology is developed right in our area, makes living here very enjoyable.
We agree! Thanks Jim for these thoughtful answers, and thanks to everyone at Print-Tech for providing such quality services to us at 826michigan.
