OLLI visited Wayne Printing for a private tour of the company that prints, binds, and mails the OLLI brochure!
Founded in 1963 by Wayne Owens, Wayne Printing started as a small home-based business. Although Wayne sold the company in 1974, in 1991, Wayne Printing returned to being a family owned business when Ken Hoerr, Jack Kinney, and Scott Hoerr purchased the company. In 2001, the company moved into a new 37,000 square foot facility located in Edwards.
Our “behind-the-scenes" tour included a look at the new state-of-the-art printing equipment, such as computer-to-plate technology, a Heidelberg QMDI four-color press and a five-color 28x40 Heidelberg press. During our tour, we had the opportunity to learn about the many aspects of the printing process. We also learned about the direct mail division, which provides Wayne Printing with additional marketing tools that allow for a “one-stop-shop” that many clients demand today.
OLLI thanks the entire staff at Wayne printing for giving us a chance to see first-hand how the OLLI brochure is made.
