LinxPrint is a full-service print shop located at 1930 Powell Street. The company has had roots in the area since 2007, creating everything from children’s books, restaurant menus, to screen printed tablecloths and sophisticated fabric booth systems for local trade shows and events. Mona is the Operations Manager at LinxPrint, and tells us she really appreciates the sense of community in the ‘hood. “I have never worked in an area where it feels like everyone supports one another,“ she tells us. “I really like the character and the sense of community here.” Coming from a background in newspaper design, Mona works with a supportive, tight-knight team of five other employees at LinxPrint, with many small businesses in the area calling on their services. “I really like working with small businesses to help create design solutions for them,” Mona says. “My colleagues are awesome, it makes for a fun work day working with these people,” says Juliette, who has been working as a customer service representative at LinxPrint for the last year or so. “The clients that we serve are also really great people themselves. It is also the first job where I have a one on one customer client relationship.” “Yeah that’s the cool thing about this job,” says Courtney, who works alongside Juliette. “You get to know your clients a lot better than in a normal customer retail job, but we create a rapport with our clients and it’s a totally fun aspect.” Community is an important aspect of LinxPrint’s culture, and the company walks the talk when it comes to helping out local charities. Among their contributions is VOKRA (Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association), Make a Wish Foundation, Hastings Community Policing Centre, and many others. When it comes to lunching, the staff also keep things local – citing JJ Bean amongst their nearby faves. “There are a lot of nice parks in the area where we go to eat lunch,“ Juliette says.
