Jakprints employees are the BEST you can get! They’re hard working, dedicated and have mad skills, both on and off the clock. This month’s Jakprints Employee Spotlight features Mikey Baranick! For almost 6 years, Mikey has worked as the Shipping Manager in our Apparel department. If you’ve ordered apparel and had it shipped, Mikey’s to thank for it’s safe arrival!
We sat down with Mikey for a quick Q&A session. Keep on scrollin’ down to learn what his bands are up to, find out who he’d like to have dinner with, and which super power he’d possess if given the opportunity!
What did you do before Jakprints? I worked at the CD Game Exchange, was a security guard, along with a ton of other jobs.
Describe what you do at Jakprints. What’s your typical day? The first half of the day is mainly spent running all over both Jakprints buildings, managing the high volume of receiving, outgoing recycling, deliveries and customer pick up orders. The second half is shipping out finished products, running international and freight shipment quotes, solving any problems that may arise through our various carriers (UPS, FedEx, etc). Oh…and then more running (haha.) Most days ya get a workout.
Jakprints employees are the best you can get! They’re hard working, dedicated and have mad skills, both on and off the clock. This months Jakprints Spotlight Employee is LT Magnotto!
For over 9 years, LT has worked as a Color Separation Specialist in our Apparel Department. What does a Color Separation Specialist do, you ask? Well, in order to screen print a design on a t-shirt or other garment, the design must be broken down to the individual color components. The process of isolating each color is called, color separation. LT’ is on the Jakprints color separation team that makes this magic happen.
He was first introduced to us by renowned artist, longtime Jakprints customer and friend, Derek Hess. Before Jakprints, LT was working as a childcare provider at the YMCA. During that same time period, he was working with Hess, assisting with the launch of Strhess Clothing. Lucky for us, Derek recognized LT’s talents and introduced him to Jacob at Jakprints. It’s been a love affair ever since.
When we get the chance, we like to dig in and pull samples that we think are creative, well designed, unique and just plain awesome. But we’re not selfish, so we post our favorites on the Jakprints Tumblr everyday for you to see.
We’ll post all five products from the week into one blog post so you can see what you missed, what you like and what may inspire your next project.
