The printing process is more than just a matter of putting ink onto paper. A wide range of services and skills all have to come together to turn a blank piece of paper into a full printed job.
Some of the steps are relatively simple, such as the work performed by the ladies on the tables. This can be as simple as folding or stuffing into boxes or as complex as gluing windows into packaging boxes. Other jobs are more involved and require training and careful supervision in order for them to be done safely and efficiently. One such job is that of guillotine operator, a skilled and essential function in any print shop.
Kenneth Tshabalala is one of our guillotine operators who came to us from the merger of Raylene and CTP Artone. Kenneth joined Raylene in 2008 and has worked hard over the years. With the merger of CTP Artone and House of Print, Kenneth joined the House of Print family. However, he is not content to remain a guillotine operator and is now studying to expand his knowledge by doing an Estimator’s Course.
With the financial assistance of House of Print and guidance from the knowledgeable people in company, Kenneth will complete his course at the end of this year and will then get a chance to put his new knowledge to the test in a practical setting.
We wish Kenneth all the best with his studies.
