JOBS

 

START DATE: Flexible start date of October 1st, 2016 (We are looking to fill this position ASAP and will be interviewing qualified applicants as they present themselves.) 

POSITION: Full Time Heidelberg Windmill Operator | M-F, 9-5:30 | salary based on experience

BENEFITS: After 3 months of full-time employment we offer health insurance, paid vacation & sick days, plus additional benefits

LOCATION: 3524 Butler Street, Pittsburgh PA 15201

JOB DESCRIPTION: We’re so sad to say goodbye to our right hand gal behind the press, but the show must go on. We’re in need of an experienced Windmill operator for our letterpress design & print shop here in Pittsburgh. The position will mostly consist of printing everything from our large line of greeting cards to custom work. However, the top priority for this position will be on the greeting card side of things. You’d be working on a Heidelberg Windmill 10x15 black ball. Experience on a C&P and Vandercook SP-15 is a plus. Additional responsibilities will include minor press maintenance, cutting down paper, tracking printer related inventory, and hand mixing inks. Opportunities for the position to grow outside of printing may also be available in the future. 

We're looking for someone who feels confident about completing the tasks at hand, but who is not afraid to ask questions when they are unsure. Our new employee should be someone who is self-motivated, prides themselves on their attention to detail, and understands that we have definite goals to be met daily and in a timely manner. The shop runs like a well-oiled machine and after a thorough orientation, we’ll need you to jump right in. That means being able to communicate effectively with the team in regards to what’s on press, your plans for the production schedule and any potential conflicts. That being said, all those standard "great employee" traits still apply.

INTERESTED? Please send an email with a cover letter and resume to jobs@saplingpress.com. Bonus if you send printed samples of your work! If you don't think it's for you, then maybe you know someone that would be perfect. That's just as good and we appreciate you spreading the word. Thanks for your interest.
