Business slow during Summer?

Business slow during Summer? Not anymore. There are were many things you could count on come summer time in printing and promotions. 1) High energy bills due to the 45,000 sq ft of manufacturing and fulfillment space in the high heat of Dallas, TX…and 2) a lot of time to recharge the batteries thanks to marketers taking the summer off to do the same. This summer something is different. While many of our clients are vacationing, the business keeps coming in. That’s a good thing right? Well, it does take away the opportunity to get out and fish in the Texas Hill Country.

It also takes away the opportunity for my favorite past time; GolFish!

So, thank you clients for your business. Perhaps we should do our business on the course or on some area tanks:

God Made a Printer

God Made a Printer was produced in response to Dodge Ram’s Super Bowl Commercial; God Made a Farmer.  Paul Harvey’s classic voice, poetry, and delivery were all Dodge needed to earn a top 3 billing this year.

Watch Ram Trucks “Farmer” here

The commercial was so powerful that everyone who knew a farmer reached out and thanked them as quickly as they could.  After our personal phone calls to said farmers, my wife then thanked me for being a printer.  Figured a video would best represent who we are as Printers.

Watch “God Made a Printer” here:

Thank you to the Farmer, and thank you to the Printer.

Black and White Printing by The Odee Company

Yep, it still exists.  The 2 Xerox Docutechs which The Odee Company owns* are still up and running black and white copies or prints daily.  Stop by anytime, I bet at least one is running.  If not I’ll give you a hat.

What is a Docutech?  The Odee Company’s Xerox Docutechs are both Xerox Docutech 135 models.  They can print a maximum sheet size of 11×17 without bleeds at up to 8000 per hour in black and white.  Print On Demand or On Demand Printing at it’s finest.

Dallas Xerox Docutechs

Who prints using Docutechs in Dallas?  Financial Institutes print using Xerox Docutechs.  Publishing companies.  Many training facilities send their black and white training manuals to The Odee Company for printing.  Human Resource departments rely on Xerox Docutechs to keep all of their black and white forms and documents in line.  And lastly, schools love the black and white prints for their workbooks, forms, mailers, and applications.

Do you only print black and white copies?  The Xerox Docutech prints black only.  We then dress the manuals or workbooks up by printing a color cover on our Digital Press HP3050 or depending on quantity one of our offset presses.

What additional questions might you have on Black and White prints in Dallas, TX?

*owns: Just another reminder that all equipment is paid for.  The Odee Company is a debt-free printer in Dallas, TX.

Laser Etching vs Embroidery

In the decorating of wearables arena, embroidery has some competition.  Before, company’s wanted flashy stitching that would stand out against the chosen shirt color.  The past few years subtlety has increased.  Tone on tone embroidery has been the choice of many well known brands.  The shirt maintains a clean look while still keeping the logo’s visibility at a high level; if anything, it increases due to the viewer focusing in more to see what the logo is.

Now, there’s an even cleaner option; laser etching.  This new method would be my personal choice.  1, laser etching is cleaner.  2, laser etching is lighter.  3, laser etching keeps the itchy and irritating of the skin to a minimum compared to embroidery.
