PSS Shipments On Schedule Despite Winter Weather

Despite the winter weather conditions here in the Midwest, Printing and Shipping Solutions reports that so far, the weather has not affected most shipments. With only a few exceptions, all carriers report that their deliveries are reaching their destinations on time.
In an attempt to keep UPS customers informed, UPS has released a statement regarding severe weather which stated, “Due to the impacts of a mix of freezing rain and snow across the Ohio Valley, Great Lakes, and Northeast, we are balancing our priorities of employee safety and customer service. Our team is monitoring the situation and has contingency plans in place to minimize service disruptions. We are committed to moving shipments to their final destinations as quickly as possible and are making every effort to deliver to all areas as conditions safely permit.”
Printing and Shipping Solutions will continue to monitor the status of deliveries with all of our carriers and keep you informed as the weather changes. For status of individual packages, please refer to the tracking number on your receipt for up to the minute progress of your shipment.

PSS Vinyl Banners = A Great Way to Promote Your Business

Vinyl banners are one of the most powerful marketing mediums in the world. As you drive around, take note of how many banners you see each day that are placed on buildings, stages, at sporting events and almost anywhere else that can grab attention and can promote your business to literally thousands of people.
There are a number of ways you can use a vinyl banner from Printing and Shipping Solutions to promote your business. For starters, thousands of people pass by building after building every day and most don’t even notice businesses that do not stand out. A bright, colorful vinyl banner draped across the front or side of your building, or even along side the road at a busy intersection, can get your business noticed by hundreds or thousands of potential customers every day.

Festivals, concerts, performances and other social events are always seeking sponsorships. By placing your vinyl banner front and center at the big event, you will not only find yourself being the center of attention that day, but your banner will appear in photographs and videos that will be shared through social media receiving literally thousands of views long after the event is over.

Football stadiums, baseball fields, soccer fields, basketball courts and other athletic events draw millions of potential customers every year. Sporting events present unique opportunities for targeting your audience that puts your banner in front of thousands. Just like the outdoor concert type events, photographs and videos taken at these events always have banners in the background that are seen by thousands of people long after the event is over. Why shouldn’t that banner be yours?

Printing and Shipping Solutions can help you with every step of developing a banner that will best promote your business. From concept, through design, to final printing, we will not only guide you through the process, but make sure you end up with a product that helps promote your business. After all, our business is all about helping you market your business!

Printing and Shipping Solutions has new ownership!

Printing and Shipping Solutions, a full-service business, printing and shipping center located on the south side of Smithville, Missouri, has been purchased by and is currently under the ownership of mother-daughter team, Nancy Ellerman and Sarah Dickerson. Many regular clients have been inquiring if the store will be “business as usual”, and the answer is, YES! PSS will continue to offer UPS and FedEx shipment services, from pre-labeled drop-offs to items that must be packaged. The store also offers large-format printing services, such as vinyl and mesh banners, signage, and cut vinyl decals (from small decals to large designs for vehicles). Other printing services include business cards, brochures, flyers, magnets, posters, and much more. The store also continues to provide full- and self-service black and white and color copies as well as blueprint reproduction.

Nancy comes to PSS with a background in customer service for a large magazine publishing company spanning two decades. She previously owned a custom apparel company specializing in screenprinting and embroidery. Sarah brings extensive knowledge of graphic design, photography and marketing to PSS. Already a successful business owner, she has grown her photography business, Sarah Dickerson Photography, into a major wedding photography studio in the Kansas City area, with over 35 weddings photographed each season since 2009. She has also worked in the corporate world as a graphic designer, then marketing manager for several successful architecture, engineering, and real-estate development firms.

Sarah lives approximately 5 minutes southwest of the store with her husband, Jim and their two Pembroke Welsh Corgi dogs (who are now fixtures at the store). An experienced pilot, she enjoys flying her 1947 Cessna 120 as well as competing in agility trials with the dogs. Nancy calls Excelsior Springs home along with a Shetland Sheepdog and three horses. She enjoys trail riding and attending horse shows when not working at the store.

Both Sarah and Nancy are excited to get to know the regular customers at the store and continue to provide superior customer service that PSS customers have become accustomed to in the past.
