Tips for Writing

Being a good writer is a rare talent, but the most versatile skill in today’s job market. If you have good writing skills, you can work in most any industry. Every business needs to market itself with articles, advertisements and good copy. Look out mom and dad, that English major may actually come in handy. But just in case you didn’t study English in college, here are the three best writing tips:

Word economy—A good writer uses as few words as possible. When we write, we have a tendency to be redundant or use unnecessary words. Have a second pair of eyes look over your writing before you publish it. Make sure they eliminate any redundancy.

Validate your claims—It is incredibly important to backup your claims to the customer. When saying, “we’re the best in the industry” validate it with statistics or testimonials. Why is your business “the number one place to shop?” Always substantiate your claims.

Use active voice—We have been taught to use the passive voice and, therefore, seem insecure about our writing. When speaking to your customers, be confident and write in active voice. For example, active voice is: “the dog bit the postman,” and passive voice is: “the postman was bitten by the dog.”

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.
