I have been so pleased to work with Burns Mailing & Printing! Their customer service is attentive with a small community feel. They are knowledgeable and helpful in every phase of the process! I walked into this process blind, but from the first design phase, to the final mail-outs, each member carried me through their area of expertise, and clearly explained and coached me through what I needed to know. Their collaborative efforts produced a beautiful brochure advertising our company’s coming events. Thank you, Phyllis, for assembling such a great team to work with! You made a dreaded process a joy!

I just got back to the office today after a week in Destin FL with my daughter Joy and granddaughter Kate. It was a time of relaxing, hanging out at the beach and lots of good food. There is something about being at the ocean that is calming, relaxing and good for the spirit. It certainly makes the long drive worth it. Funny thing happened, I stopped at Durbin Farms in Alabama, a great place to get fresh produce and peaches. I went into the cafe and heard someone call my name. I turned around and there was one of my church friends and her sister. They were going to Pensacola and they invited me to have lunch with them. That was a nice treat and quite unexpected. It really is a small world.
Coming back to work this morning was not too bad. I had worked a couple of hours on Sunday so that I would not be absolutely slammed when I got to work this morning. It is always good to see my work family. I miss them when I am gone.

When a business is at least 51% women owned and meets other guidelines specified by the Governor’s Office of Diversity, that business can apply for a WBE status. That business once certified will be listed on the Governor’s diversity list and companies that are looking for businesses that have WBE status can contact them and possible do business with them. The WBE business has to compete in the market place just like any other business.
Burns has been certified for many years and we are a 100% women owned business. We are located at 6131 Industrial Heights Dr., Knoxville, TN 37909. We offer graphic design, printing (both digital and offset) and we are a complete direct mail company. In other words, we are a one-stop convenience for direct mail.

The non-profit for whom I work recently decided to send out our first mailing. It is very important to us to use local businesses, and local women-owned businesses whenever possible. Burns Mailing and Printing, Inc was recommended to us and I know why! Working with Burns Mailing and Printing was a positive experience from start to finish. They are professional and timely. They are a one-stop shop for all printing and mailing needs. Since we are a non-profit, we are eligible for non-profit postage status, but had never applied. They encouraged us to do so, and Amy helped facilitate and expedite the process for us. We had help and guidance from Angela in the design department, resulting in a beautiful postcard. Everyone in the office is welcoming, kind and helpful. Phyllis Burns knows and understands business and non-profits. And even though our mailing was very small, we never felt or were treated like we were small or insignificant. We will use Burns Mailing and Printing for all of our mailing and printing needs going forward. They get Five Stars from us.

The first thing that it means is that it requires a lot of work to be certified by the state of TN. Lots and lots of paperwork and an onsite visit by the Office of Diversity to inspect your corporate books and answering a lots of questions. Does it mean that you are automatically going to be business because of WBE status. Not at all, you still have to work at selling, estimating and when you do receive a contract, it means giving a quality product and great customer service. It also means that you will be listed on the Governor’s Diversity list of vendors, so that when companies are looking for a certified WBE company, it will be easy to find. My second biggest customer found me on the Governor’s Diversity list and we have been printing for them for years. Is it worth all the work? I think it is and I am working on getting certified in other states.
Burns Mailing & Printing, Inc. is a 100% women owned business located in Knoxville. We offer graphic design, with three designers on staff, both digital and offset printing, and direct mail services, including high speed matching inserting, list acquisition, high speed addressing and much more.
