Team Chatter 10

Congratulations to Robin Heinrich of Elmwood Press in Elmwood Park, NJ!

Robin is the proud new owner of a 2010 Polaris® Trail Boss® 330 ATV given away during Team Appleton's recent contest celebrating the launch of NCR PAPER* brand Superior, the "all-terrain" carbonless guaranteed for offset and digital.

Robin was delighted when she found out she won the "Team Appleton" ATV. "It was very exciting to find out that I had won," Robin said. "I'm still in shock over the whole thing."

Our sincere thank you to all carbonless sheet printers who participated and made this promotion such a success! Team Appleton looks forward to hearing from you during our next campaign.

The Team Appleton Forum: Discuss. Learn. Share. Laugh.

Staying connected with other printers and the industry you love isn't work. It's a way of life. Since Team Appleton is committed to the printing industry, we understand the critical importance of having conversations about what's going on in the industry. We also know the value of wanting to share stories and experiences about yourself, your employees, your company and your heritage.

Sharing is the idea behind the Team Appleton Forum. As the only online community dedicated to carbonless sheet printers, the forum is where you can gather with other printers to ask or answer questions and share tips, tricks, technical know-how and even humor.

The forum is also about having fun, and the newest Team Appleton contest will provide plenty of it through photos from fellow carbonless sheet printers competing to win an Appy Award and other prizes. It's sure to be a good time, and you can be a part of it!

Connecting with other printers on the Team Appleton Forum is easy and powerful. Joining the forum means having an insightful resource for answers to questions and discussions on industry news or the daily grind with people who understand you because they are also printers who take pride in their work (and play).
