Amy Becham discusses a complex project at Georgia Pacific

Published on June 4, 2010

My name is Amy Becham.  I am the manager of the graphics and printing solutions department within Georgia Pacific, and one of the things I’m gonna talk to you today about is a recent project that we helped one of our internal customers with.  It’s a large architectural binder, a resource binder if you will, that goes to a lot of our big architect customers and other builders, contractors, and the like, but it’s a complete resource guide, and our department project-manages the job start to finish.  It has probably 45 to 50 different printed collateral pieces.  They’re all compiled, all collated into one complete binder, and it’s a project that our department works on. 

I think everyone in the department touches some piece of it, whether it’s the prepress work, the actual press work, the finishing, and then various pieces of it we do source and utilize external vendors depending on what that piece is.  So usually there’s at least three different outside vendors that have a part of it, and then we project-manage the internal, the external, and then the compilation of the piece, and it is one that goes into our warehouse.  So that way our sales people can order it, and then if an architect needs to get a copy of this binder, they can go online to our warehouse management site, and they can order the binder and it’ll come in the mail, however they request it to be shipped, and they’ll have the complete list of products and items that are at their disposal.
