MEMPHIS, TN, February 8th, 2022 – Mimeo, the global provider of online managed print and content distribution, announces a new investment in the BQ-500 Perfect Binder to improve the production speed and quality of perfect-bound documents. 

A pioneer in on-demand print technology since 1998, Mimeo is always on the lookout for new ways to improve digital print processes. The new BQ-500 automates adjustments for perfect binding that previously required manual set-up. Now, Mimeo’s fleet of perfect-bound technology intelligently reads each document and makes up to 43 automatic adjustments. Each machine can produce 800 books per hour, as compared to 200 per hour on the old technology. 

Perfect-bound print documents are a staple for many businesses and non-profit organizations. In this binding style, pages are glued together and covered with a spine, similar to a traditional paperback book. Mimeo’s customers rely on perfect binding for educational materials, product catalogs, long-form brochures, and more.  

“This new investment is a game-changer for our customers who publish perfect-bound documents,” said Mike Barker, general manager of Mimeo US. “Our customers trust Mimeo as their preferred print partner because we prioritize speed and quality to deliver professional business documents on short deadlines. Investing in the BQ-500 will allow our customers to expand their print offerings with the same high-quality and fast turnaround.”

New York, NY – Mimeo, the global provider of online managed print and content distribution, has announced the release of episode ten of Talk of the Trade—Marketing and Sales Success Stories, a monthly podcast that focuses on providing expert-led strategies for business generation and growth.

To kick off the new year, Mimeo’s SVP of Acquisition Michael McNary interviewed Sam Jacobs, host of the Sales Hacker Podcast and founder of Pavilion, about how he built his success.

In the wide-ranging conversation, Sam touches on the failures that spurred him to start a dinner club among like-minded business leaders. He also discusses how choosing not to follow established community business models has helped Pavilion scale to the global phenomenon it now is. 

“This interview is a must-listen for anyone who has worried that their career isn’t going anywhere,” said McNary. “Not only does Sam share examples from his own life of choosing the wrong job or being in the wrong place at the wrong time, you also get to hear how Pavilion is structured to help each and every professional build the career they actually want.”

“Looking ahead to 2022, we are excited to bring a new slate of episodes that focus on how sales leaders can take care of themselves and their teams,” said Mike Barker, general manager of Mimeo US. “Mimeo has a 20+ year track record of helping sales enablement teams accelerate their performance using our all-in-one business printing solution, and we are proud that Talk of the Trade continues that tradition.”

In this episode, host Mike McNary, VP of Acquisition at Mimeo, interviews Justin Shriber, Chief Marketing Officer at People.ai and Host of The Legends of Sales and Marketing podcast, about “Characteristics of CRO and CMO Legends.

Looking back across interviews he has conducted for his podcast, Justin shares that there are three key characteristics that make sales and marketing leaders stand out as legends.

He illustrates each of these characteristics with stories from the many successful guests he has spoken with.

“Justin is a fantastic guest for our fifth podcast episode,” said McNary. “Not all leaders become legends, but because Justin has spoken with so many fantastic sales and marketing leaders across industries, he has a clear eye on what sets the legends apart from the quotidian team lead.

In this episode, host Mike McNary, VP of Acquisition at Mimeo, has a conversation with guest Nick Bennett, Director of Account-Based and Field Marketing at Alyce and host of the Rep Your Brand Podcast. McNary interviews Bennett about “The Key to ABM Success: Marketing and Sales Coordination.”

Drawing on his experience starting and running Account-Based Marketing (ABM) at multiple companies, Bennett shares his tips for success.

“We are so excited to have Nick join us with his considerable expertise on our fourth podcast episode,” said McNary. “Since ABM is such a crucial strategy to so many business-to-business enterprises, our listeners will find this episode gives them a lot of concrete ideas for improving their strategy that have absolutely nothing to do with investing in another six-figure technology.

New York, NY – Mimeo, the global provider of online managed print and content distribution, announces fast printing and delivery of course textbooks to Roxbury Prep Charter School, facilitating distribution to students amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

Roxbury Prep is a public school that provides students in grades 5–12 with an award-winning curriculum. Since its founding in 1999, the school has been bringing both joy and academic rigor into daily learning throughout three middle school and two high school campuses in Boston, MA. However, when COVID-19 spread throughout the US, Roxbury Prep’s leadership sought out a new solution for getting AP World History course textbooks into the hands of students as soon as possible. 

Monique Lomax, Director of Operations at Roxbury Prep, already a client of The School Planner Company, a Mimeo company, reached out to Mimeo Document, the corporate printing division. Lomax said that, after the conversation, she “Didn’t shop around, largely because of the superb customer service.”

Mimeo scanned hundreds of pages, spiral bound them, and shipped 23 boxes of course textbooks directly to the school, where parents could pick them up, safely and contact-free. “We wanted something professional and long-lasting, but we only had a short window of time to find a company and place our order,” said Lomax, “Mimeo came through for us right away. We’re very happy with them. We ended up placing two more orders with Mimeo and recommending them to our partner high school.”

“We are proud to support Roxbury Prep in getting essential educational materials to students in a convenient, timely manner,” said Mike Barker, General Manager, Mimeo US. “Now, more than ever, we are committed to helping schools by taking care of their printing and delivery needs, so they can focus on providing an exceptional learning experience, without having to worry about their print.”

New York, NY – Mimeo, the global provider of online managed print and content distribution, announces a newly launched Marketplace storefront for A+ College Ready. Through the storefront, A+ College Ready’s network of teachers can have printed course materials delivered straight to their homes, easing the transition to virtual training sessions. 

A+ College Ready is a non-profit organization and regional partner for code.org that is dedicated to improving college preparedness for Alabama’s middle and high school students through teachers’ training. The non-profit has been conducting in-person learning lessons since 1991, but, when COVID-19 spread throughout the U.S., it transitioned to fully virtual training, starting with its summer 2020 sessions.  

A+ College Ready provided teachers with early access to digital curricular modules; however, many missed having printed, in-hand copies of the materials. While searching for options, the non-profit also needed to solve the challenge of shipping modules to 1200 teachers, across 5 disciplines, to their homes. They turned to Mimeo, the web-based, on-demand printing company that code.org regularly relies on to deliver materials to training sessions.

Mimeo built a company-branded storefront within its Marketplace, where A+ College Ready can upload, store, and maintain all of its curricular modules, ensuring that teachers always have access to the most up-to-date versions of content. The self-service storefront allows teachers to easily order printed modules on-demand, when they need them rather than paying for bulk orders of materials, and ship them to their homes to accompany virtual training sessions. From the time that the storefront was launched, earlier this month, the feedback from A+ College Ready’s staff and network of teachers has been completely positive. Also, A+ College Ready’s transition from their previous vendor to Mimeo was seamless.

“When our account manager at Mimeo told us how easy this platform would be to institute, I just couldn’t believe it,” said Tammy Dunn, Vice President for Academic Affairs at A+ College Ready. “That hasn’t been our experience when installing other platforms, but the onboarding process with Mimeo was amazing, and the customer care continues to be phenomenal. We’re very happy with our decision to use Mimeo to distribute our curricular modules.”

Mike Barker, General Manager of Mimeo, stated that, “We stand behind A+ College Ready’s mission to raise academic standards in our schools. Being able to support them by delivering training content to teachers in the simplest, fastest, and most reliable way possible is a testament to how we make our customers’ lives easier.”

A Tennessee school system has hired print management company that happens to be locally based to generate the hard-copy resources needed for at-home learning. Shelby County Schools is working with Mimeo to provide printing services for guides and workbooks and other printed educational documents. Both are located in the Memphis area. Mimeo produces online managed content distribution and provides printing services.

The district’s teachers and instructional people pull the curriculum together while Mimeo does the printing. The completed digital books are stored in an online library. Mimeo makes the printed versions in a Memphis facility and delivers the books to the school system’s distribution center.

“SCS is committed to providing instructional support to students and families during school closure, and the partnership with Mimeo is critical as we cultivate a system of supports to maintain continuity of learning,” said Superintendent Joris Ray, in a statement.

In a weekly message to the district community, Ray explained that while digital versions of lessons and activities have been placed online, “due to an overwhelming response,” the district was also printing additional materials and would announce a central location for pickup shortly.

Mimeo noted that it was offering half off of school print and delivery to schools across the country through May 30, 2020.
