Getting Organized

Aaron: We heard a little bit in the intro, but can you take us back to 2012, give us the origin story and what you felt was missing from the software available at the time.

Aaron: Let’s start with branding. You recently had a sit down with Tom Davenport of Motion Textile. Can you give a recap of that and your take on branding?

Aaron: Back at ISS Long Beach in January you and Stevan from Campus Ink taught a class about how to simplify your workflow. For those of us that missed it, can you give us the highlights and what you hoped people took away from it?

Aaron: When it comes to organization in print shops, what is the most common failure point? Your tribe is called the Print Hustlers, what are they working on to be one more organized?

Aaron: Since the inception of Printavo in 2012 what changed about your philosophy when it comes to organization?

Aaron: Merch has become a real buzz word in our industry lately, and you guys have a tool called Printavo Merch. Tell us about that and just the Merch space in general.

Aaron: I mentioned the tribe of Print Hustlers, tell us about the conference in July.

Aaron: What is one piece of advice you can leave our listeners with that they can take and implement today to be more organized?

Aaron: Where can people find you and learn more about Printavo?
