Smile for the Camera - Meet the Team at A Local Printer!
" I ask people why they have deer heads on their walls. They say it is because it is such a beautiful animal. There you go. I think my mother is attractive but I have photographs of her."
Miranda Burn - Company DirectorMiranda has many years experience of print marketing and business development with major national print companies. If she is fortunate enough to have any spare time her preferences include travel, holidays, plenty of those clever little mini-breaks, fine wine and gastronomic experiences!
Jeff Morris - Customer Services Manager
Jeff has spent the last quarter of a century working at A Local Printer in all of its various guises. Fully conversant in pre-press Jeff has developed the studio to the state of the art facility we have today. Other than playing football Jeff likes nothing more than indulging his past-time of dangerous sports, including sky diving and off-piste skiing.
Roger Weetman - Warehouse and Finishing ManagerRoger has been working at the company for over 20 years and is responsible for the management of raw materials and finished product - plus ensuring each job reaches the right delivery destination! A very keen fisherman there is some talk that Roger has webbed feet, but I've not seen them so can't comment.
Nick Brine - Reprographics Manager
As well as managing customer queries and dabbling in design Nick has the demanding task of sorting out all the jobs that are approved for print and turning them in to printing plates. Without Nick we would pretty much come to a standstill, so go Nick go!
Andy Simon - Creative ManagerAndy works in the studio and is always on hand to help our customers with their design queries. Andy likes nothing more than trying out new curry recipes on his (long suffering) wife, socialising with chums, dabbling with football, cycling and supporting Liverpool. Oh yes, and a s a new dad he has his hands full at home too!
Andy Fielder - Senior Machine MinderAndy has been with the company for a jaw dropping 28 years. In addition to machine minding Andy can run all our finishing equipment as well! Andy spends whatever spare time he has coarse fishing - his best catch to date is a 2.5lb roach caught in the local River Arun (doesn't sound like a big deal but apparently it is!).
Colin Brooks and Ben Kemp - Press Minders
Colin and Benny run our B2 press and are responsible for printing the majority of the work ordered via our website. So you know who to thank for a good job!
Chris Hendy - Press Minder
Chris runs our B3 litho and digital presses and in his spare time is another extreme sports fanatic spending most of his time in rough water in a kayak. Still, I suppose it keeps him out of mischief.
Steve V and Stewart M - Finishing
The two chaps responsible for pulling all of the printed sheets in to finished jobs - with folding, stitching and guillotining these two are kept busy all day finalising your finished product.
Jane Evans - Office Manager
The voice on the 'phone, Jane takes the majority of calls that come in to the office, manages all of the website orders and sorts out the payment process. With a couple of youngsters at home there is very little that fazes her!
