Mother Nature Has Had Us Confused This Year

April 11, 2019

It seems like spring is finally here and I love the beauty of this year.  However, it was confusing as to whether it was winter or spring.  One thing that we are not confused about is that it is time for our non-profit friends to get those newsletters, appeal, post cards and invitations in the mail.

25 Years in our current building…Time Flies, If You Are Designing, Printing & Mailing

April 10, 2019

This marks 25 year of being at our location at 6131 Industrial Heights Dr, Knoxville, TN.  We purchased the property in 1994 and built on to the existing building to make a total of 8400 square feet.  A lot has happened in those 25 years.  We lost our founder, Ken Burns, in 2014.  We have had some new employees and some move on or retired.  The only thing that does not change is that we have a great team of employees and we appreciate our customers.  In 2018 we were selected as the AAF Big Wig Award winner for the best fulfillment/direct mail company in Knoxville.

If you would like a free estimate for design, printing or mailing please contact me at phyllis@burnsmp.com or call 865 584-2265.


I Had An Emergency At My House This Week – Not The 911 Kind

April 8, 2019

My emergency this week was that I opened my last jar of strawberry jam that my daughter, Joy Day, and I make.  Strawberry is my favorite although we make peach, plum and apple butter. It is getting close to time when those beautiful strawberries will be in season and we can make more for us to stock up for the year.  It is quite a production as we make enough for her family and me.  It is also very messy and time consuming but sooo worth it. The jam that you buy in the store does not even begin to compare to what you can make at home.  We look pretty scroungy in the pictures of us making jam, so I though that I would put one of us together where we are looking a little nicer.

 

 

 


AN Excel Guru I Am Not

April 4, 2019

Working on a mailing list today, I got very frustrated when I lost about 30 minutes of work. Now I don’t usually do files for mailing but this was a list that I wanted to go over to take out names that were no longer relevant.  Fortunately for me and for Burns Mailing & Printing, I have an employee who is way beyond Guru when it comes to Excel and our mailing lists.  She has many tricks up her sleeve when it comes to getting our customers files ready for mailing.

I am a mailer and I am about to do a mailing, so yes, I definitely believe in direct mail.

If you are ready for your next direct mail project, email me at phyllis@burnsmp.com or call 865 584-2265 for a free print and mail estimate.

 

 

 


What The Design Department Does At Burns Mailing & Printing

April 2, 2019

You may have the idea that our graphic designers just lay-out post cards, brochures etc., but they do much much more.  In fact our design department, along with our production manager, manage the print production. They control and run our digital presses. They send files to our plate maker so that our pressman can make the printing plates to go on the offset presses.  They can even program our paper cutter so that the the bindery operators can pull up the job ticket number and the paper cutter is programmed for that job. They also check graphic files and make a print out for our mailing manager to check,  to make sure that they meet postal specifications before printing.  We check each file that comes in, even if we did not design the job.

We say “we are a printer that knows mailing and a mailer that knows printing”.  This adds up to a true one-stop convenience for our customers. Each job moves from department to department efficiently until the final stop, the United States Postal Service.   All of these services under one roof…it is a big roof.

If you don’t need the cost of an ad agency, but want to have some printed materials printed or mailed, call me, Phyllis Burns, at 865 584-2265 or email me at phyllis@burnsmp.com.
