Networking: You Don’t Have to Be the Center of Attention to be Effective

If you’re like most companies, you’d probably like more revenue. More money may come in the form of more customers. More customers may come through more networking. More networking may make you want to run to the nearest wall and take the form of a flower. Don’t run! Take a deep breath. Introverts can master the art of networking with a little help from these tips.

Host an event. Seems like we’re throwing you into the fire? In a way, it is. But think about the duties of a host. You need to make sure everyone is taken care of and feels comfortable. This gives you a natural topic to discuss. “Can I get you anything?” is so much easier than trying to come up of another opener.

Get in their Facebook. Face-to-face is the best way to truly build relationships, but technology has allowed for people to network without even leaving their desks. Establish some acquaintances in person then work to build that relationship through Facebook, LinkedIn or other social media websites.

Advice breaks the ice. Offer up advice on subjects you know well. Watch that you don’t overstep your bounds and offer unsolicited advice. But if you can provide them with some information that they find useful and will establish you as an expert in your field then you’ve achieved your goal. If they are looking to do business with a company like yours, hopefully you’ll be the first to come to mind.

As the good saying goes, “practice makes perfect.” The more you work on networking skills the easier it will become. Just because networking may not come natural to you doesn’t mean you will be less effective than that gregarious person holding court in the center of the room.

Welcome to Lithtex Printing!

The art of printing is not in the press. Or fancy die cuts, or bindery, either. Instead, it’s using printing to make business happen. At Lithtex, printing is about more than just ink and paper - it’s about creating business solutions, and getting results.

Lithtex Printing Solutions was founded in 1973 in Beaverton, Oregon by Les Davis. Originally established as a quick-print shop, we quickly became known as a leading local resource for the fast-turnaround printing needs of local businesses.

Over the years our reputation for top-notch work grew, so did the company. As other printers struggled to compete in a changing marketplace, We acquired more equipment, employees and clients, to become among the largest local printing companies.

Lithtex has always been committed to keeping up with the latest printing technology. As the local business climate changed in the late 1990’s, client budgets tightened, demand for return on investment rose, and technology quickly advanced. Foreseeing a change in the printing needs of businesses large and small, Lithtex evolved by adding digital equipment to its extensive offset printing capabilities to support the emerging need for short-run quality printing—thereby establishing itself as the business-solution driven printing company.

In 2001, we expanded operations and built a 50,000 square foot state-of-the-art printing facility. Today, that facility is Lithtex’s headquarters for developing business solutions for its clients.

In 2010 we were rewarded Hillsboro's "Business of the Year" by the Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce. a recognition that we are extremely proud of.

Today, Lithtex continues to be a recognized leader of solution-oriented printing.
