Top 3 Nerd News Articles of March

1. Pi Day
In March we celebrated Pi Day (3/14). We celebrated here with pie all day; quiche for breakfast, pizza for lunch, and chocolate and pecan pie for dessert!

2. Goldfish Braces
For humans braces are usually a cosmetic fix, but for Mr. Hot Wing the goldfish they saved his life. Mr. Hot Wing was born without a lower jaw, so a veterinarian used a bit of credit card to allow him to breathe and eat. Check out the whole article here.

3. Adorable New Octopus
Finding a new species of animal is always exciting. When that animal looks like an adorable little Casper the Ghost it is even more exciting. Check out the video here

Event Spotlight

A look back on the Little Pressroom's last 30 years.

Ray Rheaume had worked for Standard Register for 20+ years when in early 1986 he began thinking about branching off on his own. He started buying machines and supplies throughout the summer and opened the Little Pressroom in his home in December 1986.
With his wife Lynda's help, business boomed over the next two years and they had to find a new home for their expanded needs.
Ray and Linda in a sales meeting
They settled upon a deal with George Phinney for renting space at his Marketplace on Creek Rd in Middlebury in August of 1988.  
Ray and Lynda built their reputation over the next 22 years on offering quality printed products, superb customer service and fast turnaround.

Then after having been downsized by the economy in late 2009, I gave Ray and Lynda a call to pose the idea of when they were ready to retire, to please give me a call about their printing business. I had been in printing back in the 80's for a bit and enjoyed it at the time (back then we had no PC's, no internet, VCR's had become the rage and microwave ovens were now smaller than Volvo's).
To my pleasant surprise they called almost immediately to say they had been thinking about retirement already. After a few meetings, we put the deal together and I came on board in February of 2010. 
Putting the new sign on the shop 
In my 6 years, we have expanded to include offering promotional products as well as just about anything printed. We have also been able to expand to 5 staff over the course of time. We remain in the same space at 18 Creek Rd and plan to continue here well into the future.

We have honored Ray and Lynda's legacy by continuing their dedication to offering quality printed products, superb customer service, and fast turnaround. 
And, to you our treasured clients, as we move into our 30th year of business, we offer a very heartfelt thank you for allowing us to produce your printing and promotional goods over all these years!
