Andrew Bio Photo

Andrew

President

Is there anything more exciting than a well-designed business process? Not as far as Andrew is concerned. Andrew spends his days ensuring that Blue Label is not only upholding its high service standards to customers, but is also a great place to work. In addition to his obsession with high quality printing and customer service, he likes traveling, good books, and East Coast IPAs.

Norm Bio Photo

Norm

Vice President

Norm is a sixth generation printer. His mountain top life experiences (in addition to climbing on both Mt. Kilimanjaro and Mt. Everest) include personally receiving autographs from Roberto Clemente, Jack Nicklaus, as well as having a private audience with Pope Paul at the Vatican in 1973. When he’s not overseeing Blue Label and its sister company One Write, he is hanging out with his wife, his three sons, and his three dogs.

Joe Bio Photo

Joe

Director of Operations

Joe oversees the day to day operations of Blue Label. He is the spine of the company, from estimating, to scheduling, to purchasing, to proofs, to customer communication. He works so hard because he loves his job, his coworkers, and his family. In addition to busting it at the office, he is an aspiring bogey golfer, diehard fan of the Cubs and the Buckeyes, and a member of the American Cornhole Association. Even with all of this, he still finds time to be a full time husband, father, and dog/cat whisperer.

Joe M. Bio Photo

Joe M.

Plant Superintendent

Joe oversees production, from a roll of paper to a roll of finished labels. With over twenty years of printing experience, you better believe he knows quality. Don’t think for a second his dedication to excellence stops in the pressroom, in his spare time he coaches youth baseball, football, and basketball. In the midst of all that, he still finds time to spend with his wife and three sons.

Gareth Bio Photo

Gareth

Director of Finance

The money man. The numbers guy. Our financial captain that keeps all the engines running and lights on at Blue Label. Gareth is a man who speaks two languages: numbers and Pittsburgh sports. Want to debate the latest Steelers’ game or negotiate terms? Gareth is your guy.

Abby Bio Photo

Abby

Accounting Specialist

Abby is our Accounting Specialist – she is the sweet voice you hear on the other end of the line, ready to take your payment or chat about an invoice. When she’s not at work, you can typically find running around with her two daughters, in the stands of a Buckeye basketball game, or cheering on the Cincinnati Reds.

Tammy Bio Photo

Tammy

HR & Compliance Manager

Tammy keeps Blue Label running smoothly (and the lights on). As our HR and compliance manager she takes care of all the little things that make our business, well, a business. Outside of work she is usually hanging out with her family, gardening, interior decorating, playing piano, teaching preschool, or maybe, just maybe, hitting the links for a round of golf.

Brant Bio Photo

Brant

Quality Manager

The Winston Wolfe of Blue Label, Brant is our Quality Manager who is an ever-present force that is constantly working within each department of the facility, stepping in and stepping up when a problem arises. When he’s not fixing problems, he’s using his 12 years of operations experience to put procedures in place to make sure they don’t happen in the first place.

Jon Bio Photo

Jon

Head of Production Planning

Working with the Solutions Department, Jon brings over 10 years of printing and customer service expertise to help provide for all of your label needs. Jon is all about delivering the very best in products and services to promote and advance your brand. When out of the office, Jon can often be found knocking down pins at a local bowling alley or trees at a nearby golf course. Jon also enjoys basketball, camping, whitewater rafting, the Buckeyes and of course spending time with his wife and son.

Kevin Bio Photo

Kevin

Estimating Manager

Need to find a job that’s between departments? Have an uncanny issue with an order that’s already out on the production floor? Kev is our go-to guy. As Lead Production Planner, he’s got a hand in just about every part of the facility, making sure things run smooth from estimating to shipping. An avid sports fan, traveling connoisseur, and a thrift store junkie, Kevin is always on the go.

Blake Bio Photo

Blake

Purchasing Lead

Arguably, one of the most fit members of the Blue Label production planning team. Blake not only enjoys focusing on his physical health, but also the health of our material inventory and production planning operation. Don’t let the welcoming smile fool you, this part time personal trainer keeps us all in our best shape.

Jacob Bio Photo

Jacob

Production Planner

A lighthouse in the storm of busy-ness. Our Navy veteran never disappoints, especially when it comes to handling business in production planning. To no one’s surprise, his efficiency and discipline make him a vital member to our production planning team. If you can’t find him inside, you can find him doing anything and everything outside or playing with his two daughters.

Darlene Bio Photo

Darlene

Production Planner

Another fantastic team member that keeps the cogs and gears of production planning turning is Darlene! A family focused woman who also spoils the office rotten with treats. She’s a proud mom of two girls and when she’s not keeping things in order at the facility, she’s keeping them in order with all their activities.

Josh Bio Photo

Josh

Production Planner

Josh is a great member of our production planning team that oversees the life-cycle of an order. He’s got a background in managing courier routing and shipping, so handling many moving parts is par for the course for him. If you can’t find him handling business at Blue Label’s ‘course’, be sure to check your local golf course (or anywhere outside for that matter).

Jeremy Bio Photo

Jeremy

Production Planner

Shipping overnight to ten different destinations? Done. Variable data that’s different for every run? No problem. Jeremy has experience with some of the most complex customers in printing, and he likes the challenge. Where does his endless patience come from, you might ask? Probably that when he’s not at work he’s the father to five kids (three of whom are triplets).

Ryan Bio Photo

Ryan

Head of Finishing

Think of Ryan like our third base coach. He gives all the signals, oversees the field, and most importantly, gives them (the orders) the go-ahead to round the base and head for home. Taking care of all orders as they hit the fleet of finishing lines and head to packing and shipping, Ryan is the mind and muscle behind all of our decorating, die-cutting, and general finishing operations.

Dan Bio Photo

Dan

Head of Digital Production

Dan manages the fleet of HP Indigos in our printing facility. He oversees all of our press operators and makes sure our machines are running in tip-top shape. With over 10 years of printing experience, rest assured your labels are in good hands. When he’s not elbows deep in the guts of an indigo or analyzing a color-check on press, Dan enjoys spending time at home with his wife and family.

Tonya Bio Photo

Tonya

Packaging Manager

You’ve never seen a corrugated box come together as fast as when Tonya is around. There isn’t a box that leaves Blue Label that Tonya hasn’t overseen. Handling the rewind, roll-counts, shrink wrapping, and packing of every order that comes through the facility, Tonya can get any order out the door. She’ll also kick your butt in any company competition we have!

Pieter Bio Photo

Pieter

Systems Manager

Bonjoir! Hallo! Hi there!  It doesn’t matter if you choose French, Flemish, or English, our Belgian native will greet you with a smile and a conversation all the same. Pieter is “the man behind the curtain” that keeps our 100% digital facility afloat. If you’re able to get him out from behind the computer screens at work, you’ll most likely find him gaming behind his custom ones at home. Pieter is always busy cooking up a masterpiece or hanging with his family when he’s able to break away from the digital madness.

Toby Bio Photo

Toby

Systems Analyst

One part Solutions Analyst and two parts baseball prodigy, Toby brings a lot to the Blue Label team. In between scheduling jobs, ordering materials, and triple checking his work, he manages to keep the tidiest cubicle in the office. Outside of work, you can usually find Toby enjoying a Cleveland Indians game, or running through “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” episodes for the millionth time.

Katie Bio Photo

Katie

Marketing Manager

Multiple tradeshows at once? Not a problem. Managing a photo shoot, planning a company party, and writing a blog at the same time? All in a day’s work. Katie manages all things marketing for Blue Label. As a retired Division I athlete (Montana State Volleyball, go Bobcats), she knows a thing or two about time management. When she finds free time, she’s helping out at her family’s pretzel shop.

Pat Bio Photo

Pat

Business Development Manager

Pat’s a bloodhound. If you have a problem that Blue Label can solve, Pat will track you down and let you know about it. He’s passionate about understanding and improving our clients’ businesses. When he’s not on the phone, on the road, or out in the shop helping out, you’ll find him crushing drives on the golf course or hanging out with his friends and family. We should also mention that he has the best hair this side of the Ohio River!

Kody Bio Photo

Kody

Senior Business Developer

The path to a great looking label can be long and confusing. But luckily for you, Kody is your sherpa, and he‘ll guide you to the proverbial summit of the most treacherous mountain, er, label project. You get what we mean. When he’s not finding solutions to your business’s packaging needs or traveling across the U.S.A. meeting customers, he’s shouting “FORE!” from a municipal golf course near you.

Josh Bio Photo

Josh

Senior Business Developer

Josh works with new customers to make sure their experience with Blue Label is seamless. Between his relentless positivity and sense of humor, it’s never a bad day when Josh is in the office. When he’s not welcoming new clients to Blue Label, he’s exploring breweries across the Midwest or hitting golf balls into ponds on central Ohio golf courses.

AJ Bio Photo

AJ

Business Development

AJ works with our new customers to make sure they have the best experience possible. Have a simple order that just needs a little love or a complex job that’s got more facets than a diamond? AJ is the right guy to bring your work to life. He’s a dog lover through and through and can never get enough craft beer.

Molly Bio Photo

Molly

Supervisor of Account Management

In addition to being in charge of Account Management, Molly works on numerous accounts herself. With over 20 years of customer service experience, Molly is an expert at solving problems. When she’s not cultivating relationships, she’s cultivating her garden (that was bad, we know) or watching her son play baseball.

Tara Bio Photo

Tara

Manager of Strategic Accounts

A label guru, if you will. Tara is the master of organization, procedures, and memos. If you’ve got a label problem that you can’t solve, Tara’s the one that will find a way. When she’s not keeping things in order at Blue Label, this Kansas girl that found her way to Ohio loves being home with her husband and daughter.

Cody Bio Photo

Cody

Lead Account Manager

Is it a coincidence Cody’s abbreviated name is C. Hill… chill? We don’t think so. Cody is cool, calm, and collected, making sure we’re meeting deadlines without breaking a sweat. Outside of work, Cody enjoys spending time with family and friends, especially his daughter and watching the Ohio State Buckeyes and Philadelphia Eagles play football (yeah, it’s a weird combo).

Megan Bio Photo

Megan

Account Manager

Megan is an expert at catching the little things and making sure your packaging project is perfect. What’s her secret to understanding the needs of her clients’ businesses? She runs a business herself. When she isn’t at Blue Label, Megan and her husband are operating their boutique in downtown Lancaster. In her spare time (not that there is much of it), you can find her hanging out with her kiddos.

Zac Bio Photo

Zac

Account Manager

Whatever you need, Zac is your guy. With years in the customer service industry, you’ll be hard pressed to find a calmer, cooler, or more collected guy than him. He is also the resident, low-volume, classics-only, DJ on Friday afternoons in the account management wing. Bringing good vibes, all the time (unless the Cleveland Indians lose).

Tessa Bio Photo

Tessa

Account Manager

If you have the pleasure of working with Tessa, you’ve got the smile that never stops. Tessa is a fantastic addition to our account management team with a single-minded-focus on making sure her customers are well taken care of and happy. She loves being with family and friends, and most importantly – spoiling her niece.

Kayla Bio Photo

Kayla

Account Manager

With over 10 years of customer service experience, having Kayla on your side is a no brainer. Her tenacious attitude and calmness under pressure comes from her training as a nurse and experience as a momma. There’s not a lot that you can throw her way that she can’t handle.

Teah Bio Photo

Teah

Account Manager

No stranger to account management, Teah is a force to be reckoned with. A family-centered gal, it’s no surprise she treats her customers with just as much T.L.C.  Detail oriented, organized, and a master communicator – Teah is the gal you want on your team.

Dave Bio Photo

Dave

Prepress Manager

David is responsible for ensuring that your digital art transfers correctly and efficiently to a printed label. He has been immersed in prepress work since the days of Photoshop 2.5 and Windows 3.11. Out of the office, he can be found at the family’s local candy shop, struggling on the golf course, or enjoying time with his wife and two children.

Lyndsey Bio Photo

Lyndsey

Lead Prepress Operator

Lyndsey is a highly motivated individual with a passion for art and design. She has a desire for knowledge and is always up for a challenge and learning new things. Before coming to Blue Label, she worked as a graphic artist and still freelances in her “free time”. With nearly 10 years of experience working in the art industry, she has become captivated with the world of quality printing. When she is not at work, she enjoys being outdoors, hiking and canoeing, creating, designing, woodworking and enjoying time with her family and friends.

LaMark Bio Photo

He’s originally from Cleveland, Ohio, he moved to much warmer (well, kind of) central Ohio to attend THE Ohio State University and Columbus College of Art & Design. In his free time, LaMark continues to hone his skills as an artist and hang out with friends and family.

Gene Bio Photo

Gene

Prepress

Gene has worn many hats over the course of his 25 years with Blue Label, but most recently has become part of the Prepress team. You can also catch him donning a chef’s hat, mixing a drink, or supplying music for many our company get-togethers. He loves to throw a party! Outside of the office, Gene will probably be enjoying a good craft beer at a Pittsburgh sporting event, or maybe a Buffett or Stones concert. Being a ‘family first’ man, there’s a good chance his wife and one (or all 4) of his children will be right there with him.

Sara Bio Photo

Sara

Prepress

Don’t throw down a themed party and expect Sara not to take up the gauntlet. This queen of costumes is fun, creative, and a down right wizard at design. As a part of the prepress team, Sara helps evaluate and prepare artwork before it gets sent to press. If she’s not working on her own illustrations, she’s traveling, cooking, or playing board games with her family and friends.

Joe L. Bio Photo

Naaman Bio Photo

Naaman

Prepress

The guy we lovingly refer to as ‘the professor’ around the facility. Naaman (who really was a professor at Ohio University) is now a part of our prepress team. His expertise in design programs and art in general is an asset we are happy to have on our side. This mastermind of creativity can even be found writing and drawing his own comic books when he’s not too busy helping his nieces and nephews with homework. Once a teacher… always a teacher!
