June marks our sixth issue as owners and editors of PCWJ and it’s unreal how quickly time has gone. I feel as though everything has been in fast-forward since we announced the magazine takeover last fall.
Our mission is to celebrate the local community in a new way. The magazine has been in Pitt County for years, but we wanted to make sure that everything we did magnified the local community: local stories, a calendar of local events, spotlighting local women in our Women to Watch section. Even with all of that local focus I still felt like there was one glaring misalignment in our brand: printing.
With a focus on producing the best quality product that we could put on stands, we decided to use an online print house I’ve used for small jobs in the past, and that I knew could print the new PCWJ to our standards. The problem: they are not in Greenville, or even in North Carolina. The printer is in Texas. This had to change!
We are excited to announce that this June 2019 issue of PCWJ is entirely locally produced! PCWJ is now being printed right here in Greenville, NC, with Adams Publishing Group. We are so excited to be contributing more business in Pitt County. Our whole production process—from our computer screens to the physical magazine—in your office is a local product.
We are here for Pitt County, and we want everything we do to be in support of this great community. Thank you for your continued support.
That PCWJ Guy,
