Streger Carla Stanley stories

Carla Schillig has witnessed tremendous technological change in her 30 years with Stanley Consultants and Sycamore Printing. Reprographics and printing are critical areas for a multi-national firm that must constantly make plans, blueprints and engineering drawings for clients and their projects.

Schillig has been involved with one-color presses that required multiple printing passes that changed to two-color and four-color presses that cut the time needed to print to one-third of what was needed previously. Microfilm has gone the way of digital copies that the department puts in the transfer directory and everyone can go to a directory and print it out. Copiers have evolved from the old Xerox 1860 to lightning fast models that started taking over for the presses, making printing much faster and allowing the department to collate as it printed. Now copiers can print, punch or staple, and fold all in one step.

Schillig is proud of the talent in the Graphics Arts Department and would put its designers up against competition anywhere. She also noted the time frame for getting work in and wanting it out has improved some over the years. The department will still get some last minute rush jobs but overall everyone has gotten better at giving the staff more lead time to get the printing done.

"The opening of Sycamore Printing was a highlight of my career," Schillig said. "It is a growing business, even in these times. Through a networking group to which I belong, I have people in for a tour and they are always surprised at what we have to offer."
