Another lifer in the trade, BJ is an Ann Arbor native who graduated from Ferris in 1986. He has worked in every aspect of the industry and is committed to making sure Print-Tech clients receive the highest level of service available. Although it’s been several years since the last one, an all-nighter is not out of the question if it means honoring a commitment to a customer. BJ finds stress relief through running and mowing checkerboard patterns in his lawn.
Margaret can read a paper swatch book and a balance sheet. She's 1 part VP, 1 part Sales Champ, 2 parts Superhero, and 3 parts Fur baby Momma. Too many parts? Nah, just enough to keep the ink rolling. Though her commitment to assisting her clients is rooted in old-school values. She’s not afraid to battle blizzards, monsoon rains, or ridiculous flights of stairs in the spirit of customer satisfaction. When not formulating her next client solution you can find her training for her next run or taking her dog on a walk.

With a BBA in Marketing and ad agency experience, Leigh provides a unique and strategic advantage for her clients. She is known for asking all the right questions and her attention to detail. She is also known for being giggly and silly (especially on Fridays). If she’s not at the office thinking outside-the-box for her clients, you can find her shredding some trails on her mountain bike or doing just about anything that involves being outdoors.
Teresa has worked in the printing industry for 32 years… 30 of those at Print-Tech. She holds the official record for length of service here.
