Eco-Friendly Promoting

forest

At Jakprints, we practice what we preach and work to leave the Earth better than we found it through sustainable printing. In addition to aggressive recycling programs, we have some of the most sustainable printing methods in the industry.

But, any company can toss around green buzzwords; that’s why we’ve partnered with Trees for the Future to plant one tree with every order. They work with local farmers in Latin America, Africa and Asia to rebuild communities and cultivate more diverse, productive and healthy land. Since 2012, we’ve already planted over 200,000 trees — that’s more than one square mile of new forest.  Enough about us, you’re here for you aren’t you?

Employee Spotlight – Michael “Mikey” Baranick

This post was published and formated for an old version of the blog.

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.

Ja’Ovvoni Garrison R.T.A (Renegade Transit Authority)

This post was published and formated for an old version of the blog.

Last week, I hung out in the Skate Kitchen with Ja’Ovvoni Garrison and chatted about his new Cleveland skateboard and clothing brand, R.T.A.

Growing up in East Cleveland, there weren’t any skaters in Ja’Ovvoni’s neighborhood. Most of the kids played basketball or video games. Eleven years ago, he received a demo copy of a Tony Hawk video game from his local Pizza Hut. After playing the game, he decided to give skateboarding a try and quickly fell in love with the sport.  He spent most of  his time skating solo around his neighborhood until hearing about the downtown skatepark  left behind by the Gravity Games organizers in 2003.

The Mixtape Casanova and DJ Kid Robot at The Avenue Taphouse in Lakewood, Ohio.

 

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.
