April 2015 - Employee of the Month

Author:

This month pretty much everyone voted for Alex Burgess our Production Team Leader. As if John, our Operations Manager being off on an extended holiday wasn't going to give Alex enough extra work to do, Paperlinx going bust added significantly to his workload.

Author:

Does this ever happen to you? Now we do love to capture data here Kingfisher Print & Design. I'd almost say it's a skill we've mastered. But we all know if we don't use it wisely it's just a bunch of numbers. We always try to remind ourselves to see through them to find the trends, the kinks in our armour, and our strengths. Where you can pin point that investment and be confident that you'll get the return, remember that there's ALWAYS room for improvement. You don't need to reinvent print to be successful at it, there are enough models that already wo ...

Another day another dollar

Author:

Another day another dollar, is that not how the saying goes? Not every day is a great day in the world of print. With a sickness bug causing chaos in our team, we dig deep in the finishing department at Kingfisher Print & Design to meet the customer requirements - efficient and effective team work ensures we can get the job done. The finishing team have grafted to get everyone's work out on time and as team leader I am certainly grateful to them all.
