Our First Blog!
Tuesday June 14, 2022
This is us, Barrett Print! Welcome to our first ever blog. We will be sharing print news, information on new products and the odd bit of print nonsense. I thought I would begin by introducing myself and our team.
Hello, I am Sadie, Director and Chief Tea Maker. Many of you will have spoken to me a million or so times on the phone but we have probably never met.
I have worked in the print industry since the age of 18, all very much by accident! I love my job, but wow – has it changed over the years.
Long gone are the days of the dot matrix forms (thankfully some still use these), in came colour jobs and everything else with it.
So, a bit about me.
I have just turned the dreaded big 5-0. I am a wife to Jason and mother to George. My free time is spent with family & friends, socialising, gardening and the gym.
I love to go on holiday when I can, which is always short and sweet because of the nature of the business, but a welcome relief when it does come around.
I do actually love to keep fit, occasionally setting myself crazy goals like 100-mile bike ride and climbing the 3 peaks in Yorkshire! Something to re-balance the wine intake. Lol.
My father started the business back in 1989 and I joined him in 1992, where we have grown from nothing. Having survived a few recessions and finally coming out of the pandemic, it’s been rocky but we are as determined as ever to make sure our customers are happy, given a great customer service at sensible and fair prices.
Our team is headed up by myself, Tim our Graphic Designer who has been with us for many years now and Reece our Warehouse Manager, with many others working in the background.
So that’s a bit about us, at least you know who you are talking to now when you phone. We will be blogging regularly with latest news and products, so please keep an eye out for them on our website/Instagram: barrettprint
