What a Small Business Can Learn from Steve Jobs and his 12 Rules of Success

The Apple iPad 2 launched this past week showing yet another innovation by Steve Jobs’ company. Jobs could be considered one of the most innovative businessmen on the planet. As a small business owner, you may find it impossible to attempt what Jobs and Apple have accomplished. But you can learn from Steve Jobs’ 12 Rules of Success to bring innovation to your business. Here are a few rules you can apply to your business.

Rule 2: Be different. Think different. “Better be a pirate than join the Navy.”
If you do what your competitors are doing, why would a potential customer choose you over the business down the street? Think of ways to differentiate your company from the competition and focus on that. Bring innovation to your industry by finding ways to enhance your products and services.

Rule 7: Strive to become a market leader.
Just because you do business locally doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t strive to be the best at what your company does. Let the competition look to you to emulate what you’re doing. Who knows, local success can mean expansion to affect an entire industry.

Rule 1: Learn from failures. and Rule 12: Learn continually.
Your company will surely make mistakes along the way, but what matters is what you learn from those mistakes. More importantly, never stop learning. You may think you know everything about your industry and how to run your business, but never become complacent. That’s when your competition will catch up and find ways to blow past you. Always search for ways to improve.

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.
