We have a new toy in the shop

This has been an exciting week here at McNeil Printing.  We started the week off with a delivery we have been waiting months for. Our new Offset Press finally arrived on Tuesday! The excitement felt a lot like the anticipation of Christmas morning with weeks of planning and preparation to get ready for our new press.

The rigging company started unpacking the press.  The press was separated into 3 major pieces.  Each piece carefully packaged in moisture resistant packaging to prevent any rust during travel.

After each piece was unpacked it took a feet of engineering and precision to maneuver the press pieces into the right place.

It was a sight to see and it was hard for anyone to do other work.  Everyone's cell phone cameras were out documenting the day.  Lots of deep breaths as the equipment turned tight corners and was put in place.

It took all day, but at the end of the day, the Press was put together and looks like a beauty (new equipment is definitely beautiful).  The press technicians spent the rest of the week hooking everything up and getting us one step closer to start printing on our new press.  We are so excited!

We Partied Like It Was 1954!

In March, the McNeil family threw an awesome party and we had a lot of fun with all of our Sign Shop products at our fingertips.  The Owner of McNeil Printing, Alan McNeil and his beautiful wife Kris, both turned 60! We thought this called for a Double Surprise Party!  So the kids got together and with the help of our Sign Shop and many Friends and Family we threw a very memorable party!  We had a blast!

What kind of products can you use from a Printing Company to help you throw a party?
Well this is what we did.

Vinyl Banner
This was a great addition to the party decor.

Re-moveable Wall Graphics
These were great. We blew up pictures of each of them and printed them on our Re-moveable Wall Graphic material.  They went up super easy, they stick anywhere and they come off without damaging anything.

We also used the Removable Wall Graphics for the glass doors to let people know they were at the right place for the party.

Foam Core Signs
We used these for each of the different areas of the Party.  Refreshments, Memories, and Pictures.  We hung these up with our new removable foam tape. and they made the party great!

Some of our employees were able to make it to the party and they all got in on a picture together.  We have the best employees!

DJ, Karaoke, Food, Confetti Cannons, Glow Sticks, Balloons, Dancing, Lights, Blind Folds, Picture Booth and lots of memories made.
