There has been a major development at Foote Printing. We are purchasing a new printing press. *Details are in the video above* Why a New Press? This new press will help us provide better quality products and faster turnarounds to get you your printing needs.  What is a Printing Press? For those that do not know, a printing press is a machine that prints text of pictures from type or plates, giving you a fresh poster, business card, or anything you can think of. The printing press was invented by Johannes Gutenberg in the 1440s and has advanced very much since then.  Why Choose Foote Printing?

As everyone knows, finding employees is harder than ever. With so many people making career changes during the last year and a half, many companies are struggling to fill their positions.  We are extremely thankful to our employees at Foote Printing, who have stuck with us over the year, but especially this last year or so. We are thankful to have been able to continue to work as a team through these trying times.  Since the world has started opening up again, three of our employees left to pursue their dreams, and we are grateful for their time and effort through their years with us and wish them the best!  We have been lucky to have three new employees join our team since some of the team has moved on.  We are excited for our new team members to grow with us and hope the best for those who have left!

Nestor Molina is a desktop publisher at Foote Printing and has been on our team for just over three years, but his love for design goes all the way back to his middle school years.  Nestor was born and raised in Puerto Rico, where he found his passion for art and design. As a young boy, Nestor would draw all of his favorite (and his own) anime and Disney characters in his free time.  In high school, he became interested in architectural drafting, which allowed him to become familiar with design software. About ten years ago, Nestor decided to move to Cleveland, where he expanded his experience in the design world as a product developer, drafter, and installation manager. He has a lot of experience designing and creating packaging instructions, illustrations, infographics, and much more.  Nestor's Journey with Foote Printing Since Nestor has joined our team, he has continued to expand his portfolio by working as a desktop publisher and helping fill the other roles here at Foote Printing when needed!  Nestor says a normal day at Foote always starts with calibrating all the machines for a fresh start for each day. He also spends a lot of time working with customers to help them with their formatting, materials design, collateral, and marketing brand consistency.  When Nestor is not at work, he loves spending time with his daughter, drumming, drawing, kayaking, and hiking.  Learn More About Our Team  Stay tuned to our blog to lear
