As a production manager, I can receive customers, know what they need to be done for them, identify materials needed to do their work, cost them, add necessary production costs to them and finally come up with a print cost for a particular job. This in short is termed print costing.
I can prepare an offset printing form right from the layout make films (negative and positive), make a dame for them - in case of a book to be printed, and mount them on a foil ready for a printing form up to A1 size.
When work is printed, I can trim it to size using a single knife trimmer. If it requires folding from A4, A3, A2 or A1 to the final size, I can do that using any given folding machine, using parallel cross or a combination of both folding methods.
I can do simple maintenance jobs on printing machines like; adjustment of printing machine rollers, side lays, front lays, replacing worn out transport belts and bearings of both printing and folding machines.
I can replace cutting knives of single knife trimmer and three knife trimmer and adjust back gauges of these trimmers to ensure perfectly trimmed products on the two named machines.
I can adjust and operate a gang stitch er. Replace the necessary spare parts like wire benders, wire hammers, wire trimmers and stitching wire transporter on the same machines

After three years I was asked to head the printing section. Five years later, I was appointed Production Manager of the press, a position I have held up to now.
