Midstates Group Introduces PLUS Postal & Logistics Unified System

To reduce these costs and maintain in-home mail dates and package deadlines we introduce an innovative system for handling mail and logistic freight that incorporates cutting-edge distribution and price models. With PLUS, Midstates Group delivers cost-effective postage and freight handling to customers nationwide.
Don't forget QQP's Post Office for all your mailing needs!
Nobody wants summer to end, but it looks like it's going to happen anyway. Fall brings all kinds of things to look forward to: gorgeous weather, hunting season, and football! Fall is also a season to wear layers, and it's a great time to freshen up your employees' workwear options. Quality Quick Print and our parent company Midstates Group offers employees a MIM Store where we can choose our own items. Some departments require uniforms or work shirts, and some do not, but since we have implemented the site, more employees have been ordering QQP or Midstates branded stitchwear!
Here are some of the new additions to our MIM Store that would also be popular with your employees:
Sport-Tek® Ladies Sport-Wick® Stretch Full-Zip Jacket--works best with left chest embroidery.
Sport-Tek® Ladies Sport-Wick® Stretch 1/2-Zip Pullover--works best with left chest embroidery.
If you have ever been at QQP in the cooler months, you will recognize this top. Pretty much all the women who work at Quality Quick Print have it in at least one color (some have all nine colors), and it has been nicknamed the "super-awesome-comfy-shirt."
There are also men's companion styles, one of the more popular ones:
Sport-Tek® Sport-Wick® Stretch 1/2-Zip Pullover--works best with left chest embroidery and also comes in TALL sizes!
Hoodies are great for the weekends and also for our sign install crews. Heavyweight hoodies come in pullover and zip options:
Sport-Tek® Super Heavyweight Pullover Hooded Sweatshirt
Sport-Tek® Super Heavyweight Full-Zip Hooded Sweatshirt
Hoodies can be embroidered OR screen printed! If you have a construction company, these would be a great option for your crews.
Finally, for those nice fall days that don't require an extra layer, nothing beats a basic long-sleeve T-shirt. Options are pretty endless for decorating--left chest embroidery, screen print front or back or both, and even screen print the sleeves!
Gildan® - DryBlend® 50 Cotton/50 Poly Long Sleeve T-Shirt
Does your company require uniforms or work shirts? Do you get to choose your own options? Are you interested in setting up a MIM Store for your company? Give us a call and let us know if the comments!
We are obviously very excited about our new building, and one of the best parts was all the wide open space! Too much open space can be counter-productive, though, so we decided to give our graphic designers a little more privacy with a hanging wall.
It serves a dual purpose--first of all, it gives the creative people a more private area to do their work. Secondly, it gives the rest of us a place to show off their work!
Our creative team was responsible for all of the designs on each of the panels. As you can see, some of the panels also feature other projects we have done.
This isn't the first hanging wall we have done. Our sister company, Midstates, Inc. has a hanging wall that separates some accounting and scheduling people from the hustle of the main hallway and entry way. The athletic department at Northern State University also utilized a hanging wall to separate some desks from the main area. You can see more pictures of it on our facebook page.
The actual construction of the wall is very simple and lightweight. The panels are even hung together with binder rings! What do you think of our hanging wall? What would you put on yours if you were to make one? We'd love to hear in the comments!
We are almost all settled in our new location! This week we are putting the finishing touches on the production department.
Join us on a virtual tour!
The apparel department was the first to move, and they didn't miss a beat getting the equipment up and running again!
You can see our maintenance crew is still working on the wiring. This is the view from the back of the finishing/digital press area to the south.
The collator/booklet maker is nearly assembled.
The signs department is also up and running--that piece of equipment is our large format laminator.
And in the middle of the building, our traditional presses are lined up and ready to go!
Keep checking back, because we will have information about our open house coming up! We are all really excited for our new building and to share it with our customers.
Last week, all the QQP employees got a tour of the new building. Construction is progressing right on schedule, and with the walls up, we can see how the new location will look! Come along on a virtual tour:
The entrance is on the south side of the building along 6th Ave. Immediately insides the door, you can go right to the space for the tenant or left into the new QQP.
In that empty space to the left is where the front desk will be:
The part with the insulation up will be part of digital printing/finishing, and the wall directly behind Justin will be storage.
The west side of the front will be where the marketing reps sit. Justin is showing where a desk with go RIGHT HERE! There will be another desk on the opposite side of the divider.
The window behind Justin is where the conference room will be—expect to have some roomy meetings with us that won’t be interrupted by someone else needing to use the conference room!
Just behind the conference room is the office area where outside sales, marketing reps, and graphic designers will sit. The doorway in the back goes into the production area.
This is the view to the front of the store from the office area. The square hole in the wall way up front will be a window. There will be new matching windows on both sides of the front of the building.
This is the far back north side of the building. Where the scissor lift is, there will be printing presses! The QQP Signs install bay will be on the opposite side of the wall. You can see where an overhead door is going to go.
Now we are turned around and heading back toward the entrance. See where the guy is finishing the drywall? That’s the backside of the office space from earlier. This view shows the HUGE space we are going to have to work with!
This is the same area from a different angle. Digital, large format, and finishing equipment will all fit here. The tenant space fills what is on the left side. There will also be bathrooms and storage within that framed-up area.
If you head toward the yellow wall, it will take you right up front to the retail area where we came in. Some of the things that weren’t pictured include extra office space for employees to use, areas for customers to chat with marketing reps when they come in, and a big break room!
Check back for more updates as we get them! We hope you are as excited to visit our new location as we are.
