Take Time to Learn a Skill

Mixing the inks to match the customer specific requirements for each job is a skill that takes time to develop. Each project brings new and interesting formulas to get the colors just right. Shari is one of our team members in the Ink Lab and meets this challenge each day with a positive attitude and a smile.

Getting the color perfect can be a challenge! It only gets better as we each hang in there and learn together. I have enjoyed getting to know the people that I work with and making new friends.

In my spare time I like to photograph my family, especially my six grand daughters. I also enjoy spending time with my family and traveling to visit my son in Alaska each summer.”
