bring ub work wo will come aitw It, in on<*
way or another, either by bringing to your
notice our prices, facilities and' quality oi
execution, or personal intorvieAvs. Wo are
not grumbling; far from it. We've had our
aharo; we are still getting our share. But we
have placed at your disposal a njodorn, and
almost idoal, printing establishment, with
?ucq facilities as to command admiration from all itb whom we
have business intercourse. We are not waiting; havon'ttime to wait
An Up-toDate Printing Office.
One of the vows the writer made whon he was '.* dVvU" in a
country printing office whs, in effect, that if ho ever owned or man?
aged a printing establishment, it would bo kept clean, at least by
comparison. At that time he hardly felt the force of tho vow, for he
has learned after years of experience that it is necessary immediately
after one "going over" to start at tho beginning and go over it all
again. It never ends?just like a housekeeper's duties?bul not like
the boy who sees no use in washing his faco because it; will get
soiled again. But, a clean printing establishment is just as necessary
for the proper execution of work in our line as light and heat and
power. And tho vow has boen kept. Come and see.
We Do Not Believe
There is anothor city u tho State which sends such a 3mall propor?
tion of its orders for printing and blank books away to our Northern
frionds as Roanoke. All honor to our bankers and business men;
that is?most all of it. Wo must reserve a little, as this is our
We Print Anything
That can be desired or devised from movable type, paper and ink?
and brainB. Brains aro just as important in our work as paper or ink
or type. It is the combination that tells. We do not mean to be
egotistical at all; but combining theso things to bring forth a harmo?
nious result has been our etudy?and wo do claim to know our
ousinees right thoroughly.
Ono of tho things which haB contributed largely to tho success of
our establishment is the systematic working "together ' of all our
forces in all departments. This has reduced
to a minimum the "lost motion" which is
usually to bo found in largo industries. If
a minuto can bo saved horo, anothor thoro,
it is done?an hour is gained?thus wo take
care of tho fleeting moments. Five minutes
wasted daily by ench of our employes would mean tho interest on
$10,000 a year. In these days of close margins each moment of
time must bo productive.
Quite Recently, Too
The times aro hard, money tight, everything handled econom?
ically?but it cannot possibly stay that way. So wo aro pushing
("not shoving") ahead, just as though good times woro upon us.
Wo cannot atlord to lag behind or worry; but in times of peace wo
are preparing for war. And whon it comoa wo will havo an estab
hsnmont mat can mno cure oi airyinmg max cornea?un? things Chs?
do not como now. Kecently wo placed an order for ono of the
largest lots of now typo over given at one timo in Virginia.
On the Second Floor
A long row of small presses, used for cards, envelopes, statements,
note heads, tickets and small work. Here, also, is probably the most
wonderful piece of mechanism in our establishment?the Kailroad
Ticket Printing Machine. Think of it the next time you purchase
your ticket. Secured behind iron bars and double locks, it at once
suggests government bonds, with all theso safeguards.
On this floor is tho type-sotting department, -vhore expert minds and
fingers think and act rapidly and correctly, interpreting at times hand?
writing that would mako Horace Greoloy turn green with envy.
Largo, extra largo fonts of typo permit tho handling of very large
orders in a most satisfactory and expeditious manner. Our force in
this department can sot up about as many pages in a day as a man
car read. A plentiful supply of Algebraical, Astronomical, Geometri?
cal signs and characters, accento letters, and "odd sorts" enablo us
to handlo difficult and intricate work in special lines.
On the Top Floor
Is our Blank Book Manufactory, ruling macheins, including on
which is probably tho Iwgest south of Philadelphia; our various wire
stitchers, which will tako wiro from a spool, cut it tho proper length,
shapo it, and drive through a book three-fourths of inch thick, or
one not so thick, 120 a minute; then our paging and numbering
machines, board und paper cutters, book presses, which exert a
pressure of twenty tons or more, perforating, punching and eyeleting
machines, and tho engraving department?which latter is an innova?
tion for this section.
Is just opposite and overlooking tho lawn of Hotel Roanoke, (one oi
the finest hotels in tho State,) which gives us a magnificent, bright,
refreshing view at all times. Our business office apd press-room aro
on tho ground floor (along with our prices). Each floor and depart?
ment iB connected with tho office by Electric Bells, Speaking Tubes,
and Elovators; and all departments aro bountifully supplied with all
kinds of Labor and Time-Saving Appliances.
In Our Press-Room
Can be seen tho rapid, diminutive and monster cylinder presses
including the famous "Promise Keeper," turning out thousands upon
thousands of sheets ovory day. Our largest and best paper cutting
machino, the automatic cu'.ting knife sharp?
ener, and tabloting appurtenances are on
this floor. Tho wonderful and powerfw'
electric motor, which propels tho machines
on all threo floors, is also on this floor. Over
in ono corner, hardly noticeable, is kept in
readiness, ns a supplomontary power, an
improved Gas Engine, to bo attached at
momentary notice, in case of accident to tho
electric motor, or for other causes. This precludes tho possibility of
a "holo" on tho power question.
And Our Stock-Room!
If some of our friends who usually buy a quire or so of paper nt a
time, could look in upon this department, they would not ccaso won?
dering for days. We do not exaggerate a pnrticle when wo say you
can see A TON OF A KIND; yes, TEN TONS OF A KIND.
You say: "What, ten tons of ono kind of paper in a town liko
Roanoke ?" That's what wo said. Como and see. And, besides,
hundreds of other kinds of plain, fancy and unique; there aro stacks
of card-board, of a kind, as high as a man, and he need not bo a
What Can We Not Do
With such facilities? A card, a circular, note head, envelope, pam
phlet, price list, catalogue, book, railroad rate sheet or time table, a
ruled blank or a 1000-pago ledger, on any or all, we assuro our
frionds wo are AT HOME, from January 1st to December 31st.
