The usual Monday morning routine took place today. I, Craig Ingrande came into the shop at regular time 7:00to meeting with the production manager Eddie to plan our execution for the day. Big job on the schedule today which always brings to the table the same question. What is the question you ask? Well, I will tell youÖvolume or number of jobs. Our smart chart is our discipline that records everyoneís progress and productivity.

We shoot for one or the other on a daily basis. Both is ideal of course but with the two different companies we are running under the same roof it creates altercations. At the end of the day production must always hit either volume (amount of money produced that day), or number (number of jobs produced that day). As long as one is always hit then productions weight is pulled. Today the name of the game was VolumeÖalso known as big jobs.

Painting company, new customer big job, and huge win. Three color on white beautiful thing. The backs were produced without any issues until there was one. The best Screen Printing San Diego checks their proofs all the time to make sure nothing slips through the cracks. The heat of the day caused myself to not pull up the proof leaving us with a whole job that was printed with an inch differentiating from what was requested. A big deal? Yes a huge dealÖon me.

Was it the problem of the dayÖno! We started printing the fronts and the design that was put on film was different from the design that was approved by the customer. The mistake was caught, re-ordered and the customer was happy with the beautiful work expected from the best Screen Printing San Diego has to offer, check out our website, and give us a call at 858-513-1799!
