Your Facebook Ads Are About To Get Creepier

Facebook already knows a lot about you. You look at a pair of shoes online one time and for the next 3 months, those shoes haunt your news feed. They constantly pop up in ad form, reminding you of that night when you decided you could pull off high-top sneakers.

If you find that common occurrence creepy, you haven’t seen anything yet. Facebook recently announced that it will start combining in-network data (what you do on a site like Facebook) with the things you do on other websites. Facebook explains it this way:

“Let's say that you’re thinking about buying a new TV, and you start researching TVs on the web and in mobile apps. We may show you ads for deals on a TV to help you get the best price or other brands to consider. And because we think you're interested in electronics, we may show you ads for other electronics in the future, like speakers or a game console to go with your new TV.”


A new TV is one thing, but what happens when you buy a present for a baby shower? Will you suddenly be inundated with ads for birthing coaches and Diaper Genies?

The good news is that you’ll be able to opt out of these kinds of ads entirely. Because Facebook is adopting the industry-standard Digital Advertising Alliance behavioral advertising opt-out tool, you can simply go to: aboutads.info/choices and click to opt-out Facebook from your specific browser.

While Facebook’s new advertising tactics will be seen as smart customization by some and as a voyeuristic invasion of privacy by others, they certainly raise an interesting question. In a world where people want increasingly customized products, services and conversations with companies, how much is too much? When does it cross a line?

As you develop your marketing and work to target specific groups, keep in mind that while it’s good to know your audience, using every available detail about their lives to sell them something might not be the best approach.

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.
