IT’S THE FIRST anniversary of the Big Picture Brain Squad! We asked our members, “What’s it like to be part of the VIP survey group?”

  • I love being part of this crew. You make me think every month and completing your surveys always makes me sit back and reflect on how very much we’re doing and innovating… in many cases with other printers we met via one of your many initiatives. Working with you is a delight. — Barbara Allen, Fresh Artists, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
  • This survey makes me stop and think. The ability to contribute, even in any small way, will help us grow the industry. — Kristi Duvall, The Boxmaker, Kent, Washington
  • A true honor! — Ryan Clark, Direct Edge, Anaheim, California
  • Good to see feedback from others. — Tim Roe, Outspoken Signs, Marietta, Georgia
  • Happy 1 year!! 🙂 I love being a part of the Brain Squad and part of the Editorial Advisory Board. I love being involved within our industry. — Kristin Scribner, Wrapstar Pro, Sacramento, California
  • It has been fun and now that I see the format, I can gather info for the input. — Linda Fong, Fastsigns Oakland; Fastsigns Hayward, Oakland, California
  • I enjoy hearing how others are doing, especially because we haven’t really had a tradeshow in a few years. — Michael Greenwald, NextPage, Kansas City, Missouri
  • Fantastic!!! — Jon Sherman, Flavor Paper, Brooklyn, New York

  • The monthly questions push me to think deeper about our business and how we handle customers and projects. It has started many discussions at our company. Love it! — Drew Veach, CorpColor, Wyoming, Michigan
  • Interesting and thought provoking at times. Especially when there is a need to filter what you really want to say, transforming it into an apolitical, non-confrontational, statement. — Brian Hite, Image Options, Foothill Ranch, California
  • Enjoy providing input and reading others input. — David Kaiser, Digitype Design, Tualatin, Oregon
  • Big Picture is a super read and having participation from those of us in the trenches each and every day makes it more real. Hearing from manufacturers is critical, but ground level reality is always a bit different. I like hearing and learning from my peers. — Jim White, Go Graphix, East Longmeadow, Massachusetts

  • I appreciate the open-ness of the group and enjoy your articles. It definitely brings us together in a non-stressful way. — Diana Herrera, Associated Photo & Imaging, Hialeah, Florida
  • I love learning from other members. Such a great diverse group of people. — Carmen Rad, CR&A Custom, Los Angeles, California

  • It’s good… highly endorse. Thanks for including me. — Stan Lucas, DCG One, Seattle, Washington
  • 5 Very rewarding to see our quotes with credits in print. Thank you. — Malcom Gieske, / Identity Group, Slatington, Pennsylvania
  • At first, I didn’t think much about it, but interestingly enough, I now look forward to the “B.S.” It allows me to express my thoughts and feelings. Keep up the great work!” — Tommy Melendez, Master Graphix NYC, Bronx, New York
  • I think any time you can share ideas it’s a positive. Participating in and reading about what others are doing sparks creativity and innovation. — Elaine Scrima, GSP Companies, Clearwater, Florida
  • I enjoy hearing anecdotes from others in the industry and appreciate the learning! — Gina Kazmerski, Image 360 Woodbury, Woodbury, Minnesota

  • Really good and interesting to have good minds talking about our industry! — Michael Sanders, Digital Bias Textile Consulting, Hermosa Beach, California
  • Love being a part of the Brain Squad. Sharing ideas, concerns, and triumphs to expand our industry is the only way to keep rising to the challenges of our ever-changing industry and market. I value all of the feedback I have read over the year from our industry partners. Thank you for creating the Brain Squad and thank you, Squad, for all the great insight. — Carol Yeager, MY Prints, Los Angeles, California
  • Awesome! The more information gathered about our industry the better. Companies like ours can only benefit from your work, so thank you! — Tom Radz, AZPRO, Avondale, Arizona
