Lessons Dwight Schrute Can Teach You In Salesmanship

Dwight Schrute was a Dunder Mifflin Paper company enthusiast. He loved what he sold and it showed—through numerous hilarious quotes as well as a few moments of over the top salesmanship. (If you’re completely lost, we’re referencing NBC’s The Office.)

The only thing he might have loved more than selling paper was his beet farm (everyone needs a hobby, right?).

While the illustration is silly, there is a valuable lesson we can all learn from Dwight K. Schrute: love what you sell.

If you love what you sell, you’ll know everything there is to know about it. Your clients will be (theoretically) incapable of asking you a question you don’t know the answer to. And, when posed with an unanswered question, you’ll do whatever it takes to figure it out (partly because you’re client will demand it, but mostly because you just want to know).

Next? Your passion will earn you sales. (And this makes your superiors very, very happy.) When you have genuine appreciation for your products and services you’ll be invested in showing your clients how they can improve their current situation.

And always remember this: technology won’t make the sale. As much as Facebook, Twitter, and other online marketing mediums will drive curiosity and initial investigation, it’s authentic human contact that will make or break your sale.

In other words, don’t worry, you’re never going to be replaced by a computer—a human voice will always be better than an automated one.

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.
