National Small Business Week

Small Business WeekEvery year since 1963, the President of the United States has issued a proclamation announcing National Small Business Week, which recognizes the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners.

More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create about two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year.

As part of National Small Business Week, the U.S. Small Business Administration takes the opportunity to highlight the impact of outstanding entrepreneurs, small business owners, and others from all 50 states and U.S. territories. Every day, they’re working to grow small businesses, create 21st century jobs, drive innovation, and increase America’s global competitiveness.

Our Year in Review

Taking a look back on 2016 | Our Year in ReviewWow! 2016 has been quite the year for us here at Pacific Company. We couldn’t have done it without our amazing, loyal customers and the fantastic team that we have here! With our customers and team we have been able to accomplish some pretty awesome things and we wanted to share those with you!

Our Year:

New Building

Throughout the year we have been working really hard to expand into our third building. If you read the November newsletter you saw that we were finally able to move our banner sewing and finishing team over there.  Allowing us additional space to install another automatic screen printing press and dryer. We have been really excited to expand our printing capabilities and we can’t wait to see what we can do here in the next year!

Our Team

This year we were also able to grow our team and add three fantastic people to the Pacific Company family. Gabe, a full time screen printer. Jessica, full time marketing and sales. Marty, a seasonal production worker.  You can read about them in “The Pacific Team” blog article.

The Signs

We have had a very busy year on the wholesale banner and sign side of the business with it being an election year. It was a whirlwind of red, white and blue signs around here not only screen printing but digital as well.

More Additions

We also had a very successful year in apparel screen printing and embroidery. Not only have we added a second automatic screen printing press and dryer, but we have made the decision to purchase our very own embroidery machine. This will allow us to bring some of our embroidery services in house. In doing this it will allow us to have more control over the embroidery process and improve the customer experience.

Online Stores

Speaking of improving our customer’s experience, we have also added the capability of online stores for our customers. You no longer have to worry about collecting all the orders and money for your events. We will set up your online store with whatever products you want and your logo. After that we will collect all of the orders over the time period that you decide upon. Then we produce the orders and send them to you! CONTACT US for more information regarding our online stores.

We want to give a huge shout out and thank you to all of our amazing customers for such a great year! Here’s to a successful 2016 and an even better 2017!

From Our Table to Yours …

Turkey Dinner | ThanksgivingEvery year we sit down with our families around the table, share stories, favorite memories and enjoy a Thanksgiving feast. Everyone has their favorite dishes, whether it is a family tradition or a dish that most families make, but we wanted to share what some of our favorites are.

Susan – “My favorite dish is Heavenly Hash. It’s a type of fruit salad that my Mom made every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas.”

Rick – “I like everything! From the turkey to the stretchy pants, it’s all good.”

Gabe – “I like everything except for the cranberry goo.”

Cam – “I like everything, but if I had to pick one thing it would be green bean casserole.”

Jessica – “My favorite dish growing up was green bean casserole, but over the last few years I’ve decided that it’s not Thanksgiving dinner without the sweet potatoes!”

Ryan – “All I can think of is what I don’t like because that always gets put in front of me at the table … I do like a good classic green bean casserole.”

Josh – “The turkey is my favorite, it’s the most filling and I like meat.”

Gavin – “My favorite thing at Thanksgiving is wine. Beaujolais always comes out that time of year and pairs well with dinner.”

Jeff – “I would have to say sweet potatoes, because it’s like having desert for dinner.”

So from our table to yours we wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!
