Bill went way beyond our expectations on helping us with the Breeze. We have worked with him for years and years. He produced a excellent print job. He encouraged us to move to InDesign in November of 2006. What a big leap forward for Windy City BMW. Made the newsletter much easier to produce once the old editor learned the new STUFF. We would send the ile to Bill, he would respond “perfect” and in less than a week you had the Breeze in your hands. Bill delivered the extra Breeze to our home so we could send them out to new members as they signed up. It was very hard to make the decision to go with the new BMW CCA printer package.

SAYING GOODBYE TO BLACK & WHITE

With the new color printer package from National, it means goodbye to our ever faithful printer, Bill Hameder from Aires Press in Chicago. Bill went way beyond our expectations on helping us with the Breeze. We have worked with him for years and years. He produced a excellent print job. He encouraged us to move to InDesign in November of 2006. What a big leap forward for Windy City BMW. Made the newsletter much easier to produce once the old editor learned the new STUFF. We would send the file to Bill, he would respond “perfect” and in less than a week you had the Breeze in your hands. Bill delivered the extra Breeze to our home so we could send them out to new members as they signed up.

It was very hard to make the decision to go with the new BMW CCA printer package. Larry and I can’t thank Bill enough for all the help and encouragement he has offered us. If you need a great printer, Bill is your man.
