Boston, MA – December 7, 2004 – PrintStaff, the leading placement firm for temporary help in the graphic arts and printing industry, announces it has added three professionals to its account management and placement staff.

Chandra Sinclair joins the PrintStaff Los Angeles office as account manager. Chandra comes to PrintStaff with six years’ experience working in the staffing industry, recruiting and placing IT technicians and clerical help for small firms in the Los Angeles area.
Kelly Walsh joins PrintStaff’s Orange County, California, office as placement coordinator. Kelly spent much of her career at Smith Lithographic Arts, a commercial printer located in Tustin California.
