 Customer Highlight: Park Press

Park Press began in the 1950's  in a garage in the small farming community of South Holland near Chicago, IL. In the early 60's they began publishing a series of local Shopper newspapers which required the addition of high-speed web offset newspaper presses. At that time these presses were revolutionary vehicles in the proliferation of community newspapers all over the country. The Park Press focus was on providing local publishers of newspapers, catalogs, books & Bibles tremendous cost savings with our high speed printing and binding lines.
"In the early 2000's it was clear the newspaper

market required higher quality 4 color printing so we completely retooled our prepress, press and bindery equipment. As we compared our options for new press equipment the Quad-Stacks and Folder from WebPress stood out as a perfect fit for us," stated Dan Kallemeyn, President. "This technology along with automated inking controls helped us improve color quality and reduce startup costs."
Today Park Press services several hundred premier companies around the country with the same old fashioned craftsmanship and friendly service the company was built on. "We take significant pride in producing and delivering consistent quality. Our tradition of excellence comes from the achievements of our customers, the latest technology and equipment, and our employees," says Kallemeyn.  "This press from WebPress has proved to be the reliable equipment we were looking for."

Volunteering Can Kindle Happiness
We often hear of WebPress customers who are heading out to a Lyon's Club meeting, or acting in their role on the board of directors for a non-profit organization.  We are sure there are many more who support schools, food banks, or other worthy entities in their communities.
With busy lives, it can be hard to find time to volunteer. However, the benefits of volunteering are enormous to you, your family, and your community. The right match can help you to reduce stress, find friends, reach out to the community, learn new skills, and even advance your career. Giving to others can also help protect your mental and physical health.
A few of the benefits:
  1. Volunteering connects you to others
  2. Volunteering is good for your mind and body
  3. Volunteering can advance your career
  4. Volunteering brings fun and fulfillment to your life
Many studies have demonstrated that helping others kindles happiness When researchers at the London School of Economics examined the relationship between volunteering and measures of happiness in a large group of American adults, they found the more people volunteered, the happier they were.
We've added a link in our Worth Reading section to an article from the HelpGuide.org website that provided much of the information above. The article elaborates more fully on many aspects of the benefits of volunteering.
 Commenting on commas, commas and more commas
Does the title of this section seem to be missing something?  Would you prefer to see a comma just before the word "and"?  Many of us grew up being taught that a list such as the one above should have commas not only separating the items, but also before the conjunction.  HOWEVER, there are RULES about these things that are not necessarily the same as what you may have been taught in grammar school.  And like most good rules, there are also exceptions to the rule.

In our Worth Reading section is a link to an article from the Boston Globe, on how one little comma, which wasn't there, and technically wasn't needed (according to guidelines in the Maine Legislative Drafting Manual, which specifically instructs lawmakers to not use the Oxford comma) is costing a company millions of dollars.
The article expands beyond the court case itself to explain the rules, the exceptions, and why the reasoning for creating a printed document may make the difference in how you choose to use commas.   This is a good read you really don't want to miss!

Parting Thought
