PIP Meet & Greet…


PIP Employee-AaronAaron Hannaford

With more than 25 years of experience in the print industry, Aaron Hannaford has been with PIP as Production Manager & Press Operator for the past 14 years in Greensboro. Tired of the long cold winters of Maine, Aaron and his family migrated south to North Carolina in spring of 1999. Not only was he attracted to the warmer climate, he’s also grown fond of the warm and friendly work environment here at PIP Printing & Marketing.

“What I like most about working at PIP is the people that I work with and I am excited about the new services we now offer. I feel our caring attitude towards our customers is what really makes us stand out!” – Aaron Hannaford

When away from the printer or press, Aaron enjoys fishing, photography, and exploring new places while striving to live each day to the fullest!

Aaron has won various awards for Quality Printing through PIP as he continues to work hard to please our customers and to keep up with the latest in printing services and technology.


Lunch & Learn Series | The Social Media Experience

We’re excited to announce our next Lunch & Learn Series in August!

Join us for another light lunch and presentation on Social Media by our very own marketing guru, Jessica Byerly.

Focusing on reach verses audience, we will discuss how to find a balance between the amount of material shared and follower engagement, as well as using print to encourage online activity.


While social media itself is the spark that spreads your company’s message, the content is what keeps that spark ablaze and learning how to balance shared blogs and articles, videos and podcasts, webinars, photos and press releases is key!

Join PIP Triad at our Burlington, NC location on August 21st from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm to learn how to make your marketing efforts worth while!!

Call us at 336-222-0717 or register online today!

PIP Triad Meet & Greet…

This week, meet…

Steven Allred, PIP Graphic DesignerSteven Allred, Graphic Designer

Ensuring every customer file is optimized for the highest quality printing, Steven has worked in PIP’s Graphics & Prepress department for almost two years. With 5 years prior experience as a designer for a local newspaper and some knowledge of PIP Printing & Marketing through Alamance Community College’s design program, Steven jumped at PIP’s design opportunity when a former classmate left the position.

To this day, our designer is most impressed by our, “diverse range of services and design work, as well as a clean work environment (especially for a printer!) I think high quality work in all departments sets us apart in an industry full of mediocrity. Anybody can design or print, but not many can do it well”.

Residing in Burlington his entire life, Steven enjoys time spent with his two and a half year old son, Jaden, playing music, gardening, winemaking, and painting. Currently, he hopes to learn more about web design & application development.

Check out the lobby & conference space wall installations, each designed, produced and installed by our PIP Printing & Marketing Team! Thanks to HP Ecosolutions, each wall graphic was produced in house by our HP L26500 printer on HP PVC-Free Wallpaper Substrate.  Static clings and other window applications were also created in our Burlington print warehouse.
