Making Sense of Google+

Just when you have it all figured out, they keep changing the rules of the game. You’ve spent countless hours learning what to do with Facebook and Twitter and along comes Google with their vision of a social media network. Enter Google+, where Google aims to correct the rigidness of online sharing tools and make the experience more like real life.

Navigating the Stream
Google+ centers around the Stream, which may look similar to your Facebook news feed. That’s where you’ll see the latest updates from your people. Then there’s four core elements: Circles, Hangouts, Huddle and Sparks.

Jump In
If you have a Google account you’re ready to get started. If not set up an account and start searching for contacts. Then you can start creating circles. Circles allow you to organize people into groups so you can share information with specific groups of friends. You’d rather not everyone know about your crazy Friday night. With these circles you can start hangouts where you’ll be able to conduct video conference calls. Huddles give you the opportunity to text an entire circle at once. What a great way to plan that crazy Friday night.

Get Down to Business
You’re probably familiar with setting up pages in Facebook for your business. Google+ isn’t offering that feature to date, but that doesn’t mean your business can’t benefit. For instance, you can feed your Twitter account by using Sparks that allow you to search and share what you’re really in to. This is also where others will find you if you’re writing a blog about your area of expertise. Additionally, set up a circle of your remote employees or clients and start a hangout to have a meeting.

Google+ is showing great potential for business applications but Facebook and Twitter still reign supreme. Continue to strategize ways to use these social media tools in your marketing efforts and keep a keen eye on Google. There’s a good chance their latest project could take off and you’ll already be downstream.

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.
