Drown Out That Dreaded Music and Give ‘Em Your Elevator Pitch

Get ready for awkward. The doors open as you and several of your closest strangers file into one of the most socially strange experiences you’ll ever know. Welcome to the elevator, filled with deafening silence or elevator music of your favorite 80’s bands. Stop looking up, look your fellow passenger in the eye and break the silence the last Friday in July for National Talk in an Elevator Day. What a perfect time to brush up on your elevator pitch. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

Be concise. An elevator pitch is when you give a description of your products or services in the amount of time it takes for an elevator ride, which typically means about 30 seconds and around 130 words. Remember that the elevator pitch doesn’t have to be confined to the elevator.

Adjust to the audience. Your pitch needs to be relevant to your audience. Be ready to adapt to the different needs of each person, and make sure you are giving them a personal benefit of listening to you and ultimately doing business with you. You can tell you’ve done it right if they ask a follow-up question.

Be prepared. Continually hone your elevator pitch and be prepared for any questions that you may be asked. Keep in mind the goal of each encounter when talking with someone, whether it is convincing them to do business with you or apply for a job with your company.

An elevator ride should no longer be looked at as an awkward time, but as an opportunity. Even if you aren’t pitching to someone, don’t be afraid to just say hello and brighten up someone’s day.

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.
