Brian Szubinski hails from Grand Rapids, Michigan and his love for all things print started his freshman year of high school. After learning how to silk screen, he also learned to run presses like AB Dick & Chief 15 Duplicators. At this point he was hooked. After high school he made what was an obvious choice to him and headed for the Printing Management program at Ferris State University. He considers himself the poster child for technical programs in high schools with his B.S. in Printing Management, and an A.A.S. in Printing and Digital Graphic Imaging Technology.
After graduating he moved to Chicago, more specifically the press room floor at Cardinal ColorPrint (now Cardinal ColorGroup). Working alongside a 40″ 8 color Heidelberg he dipped his hands into everything from job production, scheduling, and estimating all the way through plant material purchasing.
Brian currently works for Konica Minolta Marketing Services where he is the North American Vendor Manager. Here he meets vendors in all avenues of the printing industry.
His love for print isn’t just commercial. He collects print Antiques and has a large collection of letterpress letters, old print plates, color wheels, loupes and paper calipers. On his free weekends he silkscreens in his home and writes for this awesome blog. His collection is missing
