A little while ago, I got a package in the mail – filled with great “swag,” as well as a bunch of spiffy new Blue Virginia business cards 🙂 – from Pete Gibson of Gibson Print. So this post is, of course, to thank him profusely for sending me that, as well as for his ongoing support of Blue Virginia! The point of this post is also to tout Richmond-based Gibson Print, which describes itself as “Union printers and experts in marketing, design and media” whose goal is to “help Democrats and progressives get elected.”
As you can see from the following photos, Gibson Print does superb work – and it’s all union made AND with the recycling logo on almost all of it. So it’s not surprising that Pete et al have helped a lot of Democrats and progressives get elected – their “Wall of Fame” lists, among others: Kenny Boddye (now a Prince William County Supervisor); Joshua Cole (now a Virginia Delegate); Laura Jane Cohen (now a member of the Fairfax County School Board); Danica Roem (now a two-term Virginia delegate and all-around superstar); Jeremy McPike (now in his second term in the Virginia State Senate); James Walkinshaw (now on the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors); Steve Descano (now the Fairfax Commonwealth’s Attorney); Sally Hudson (now in the Virginia House of Delegates); Katie Cristol (now in her second term on the Arlington County Board); Hala Ayala (now in her second term in the House of Delegates and a candidate for Lt. Governor); Kathy Tran (now in her second term in the House of Delegates); Lee Carter (now in his second term in the House of Delegates and a candidate for governor); etc. Not bad, eh?
So…bottom line: if you’re a Virginia Dem/progressive who wants help getting elected, while also working with a print shop that is “100% union labor [and] employee-owned,” plus “Made in Virginia,” definitely make sure you check out Gibson Print. And hey, you might also get a bunch of really cool, spiffy “swag” in the mail as an added bonus – you never know! 🙂
