Central Texas native graphic designer Jessica Rodriguez, has recently been promoted to manager at Belton Printing, where she has worked for five years.
She obtained an Associate's Degree in advertising design and print from the Texas State Technical College in Waco.
Shortly after graduation, Rodriguez was offered a job with the company where she fit in and quickly learned her way around the office.
"She came to work with us when we first bought the company in 2007, and she has been here ever since. She has truly been one of the best things for us," said owner Ann Legan. "I would like for people to come by and meet Jessica and visit with her about any printing concerns that they have."
When it comes to designing their paper materials, a customer can bring in sketches or complete drawings of what they want to be printed, as well as email and fax them. The company will than take the time to specifically talk about the details so the client will be satisfied with the finished product.
"We can build designs from scratch, but we like to play off of their ideas, even if it is something that has already been printed," Rodriguez said. "We want to please them and go with what they want."
Although Legan runs a successful business her main concern is her clients. She is very grateful for the lasting relationships that she has built with them.
"We are so pleased to be here in Belton," Legan said. "The people have been so receptive and they are such good customers. We realize that Belton Printing would not be here if we did not have them. Pleasing our customers is very important. We are here for a service, we are also here because we are people oriented and we hope to be an expert service it's not just about us."
