Triangle Printers Looks for New Talent at Graph Expo

Published on September 16, 2011

Sales Manager Allison Rickett of Triangle Printers shares that she's not only looking for new equipment and workflow solutions, but also hopes to recruit future industry leaders.

My name’s Allison Rickett, I am the Sales Manager at Triangle Printers, we are located in Skokie, Illinois, we are a commercial sheet-fed printing company and we have digital printing capabilities and a wide range of service offerings.  

I’m here today at Graph Expo really to take a look at what’s going on, what different things are out there that I can use as a sales person to further enhance the value that I’m bringing to my clients.  I’m looking at equipment capabilities, I’m looking at paper, sub straights, finishing.  We do a lot of different things at triangle.  We have a wide range of services.  I’m you know, interested in sort of whatever is here that I can use to come back to my company to then talk to clients and say, “Guess what?  I saw this really interesting thing at Graph Expo.  We’re going to be able to talk with this to you.”  

I’m also here in my Sales Manager role to try to get a sense of whether there… what we can do to bring some additional sales people to our company.  So I’m kind of looking at the educational section here to see about interns and some opportunities that might exist there for us to bring some young people into our industry.  You know, we’re a company 56 years, I’ve been there 26 years and the industry changes faster than we can possibly keep up with.  So that’s another reason why I’m here to kind of get an overview of different things going on in our industry, things people are talking about, techniques that are happening in print, in technology and you know, what we can do to bring some younger interested people into our industry.  I think it’s a big challenge for us these days.  So that’s another reason.  

I’m also looking at some seminars that I may want to attend just to, again, get further knowledge on a particular subject matter that, you know, when you’re a sales person that’s really hard to keep up and read everything and listen to every webinar and go to different opportunities.  We’re lucky, in Chicago; we have many, many resources in our area.  But it’s still difficult.  So I’m really trying to see where I can enhance my knowledge base and bring that back to my sales force.

Designers: Are You Designing with "Considerate Color"?

Published: February 16, 2018

Cal Poly Professor Brian Lawler explains what designers should be thinking about to serve the needs of those who don't see color the same way most of us do. He recommends a process for using "considerate color" that allows the people with color vision defects to still see contrast and tonal difference in colors selected for graphic projects such as roadmaps and charts where color itself is a factor in understanding the content. He mentions specific tools designers can use to accomplish this.

Art, Photography and Print: A Winning Combination for Christopher Campbell

Published: February 13, 2018

Christopher Campbell, a lifelong photographer and artist, explains how he blends these two passions to not only create great art, but to capture his unique artwork with a camera, generating a printed image that is almost indistinguishable from the original. He sees this as a remarkable moment in history: digital printers have such a large color gamut and can do so much, cameras now capture such high resolution, and color science has come to a point where ordinary people can profile a camera and a printer, and make these things.
