Innovation for Printing

Innovation has always been the hallmark of successful print communication, although printers themselves are all too often conservative and overly cautious. Buse Printing and Packaging does all the printing processes in-house.

Our only limitations are the bounds of your imagination!

At 15 years old I knew I wanted to be a printer.

Mona Buse, my partner, and I started the business in 1969. We bought an operating Letterpress Print Shop. The equipment was all from the 18th century, a 10"x15" C&P, Handset Lead Type, Ludlow, Wood Type, Perf Machine, Punch, Paper Cutter all for $1500. Mona describes herself as "A Worker Bee". We married in 1965.

My mentor/sensei was Larry Chard, my printing teacher at North Phoenix High School. I graduated 1959 from North High. After Larry Chard retired, he went to work for Buse Printing for 15 years.

From the beginning of BUSE PRINTING, we strive to be "The lowest priced trade crafts printer and still make money." We have never borrowed money. We have never paid any interest on any money.We have never failed to pay bills on time. We never lease anything.

We do all of the six different printing processes, engraving, offset. letterpress, digital, hand processes, screen print, variable, multi-combination of each of the six, and complete mailing, converting, speciality bindery, creative, special effects, fragrances, scratch-off, packaging, large format, credit cards, publications, hardcover books, stringing, taping, carbon forms, prep, IT, research, prototyping, machine shop with machinist and electrician in-house, all types of substrates, materials, web, sheet-fed, specialty, unique, custom, security jobs, plus no job is too small.

We have 90,000 square feet under roof at 3 different and separate printing plants, in Phoenix, including our own rail car siding. We have simple and complex tools and high production work flow systems. We buy in volume almost all materials. We have only assets -- no liabilities. Approximate 75% of our business is national. We have no salesmen or saleswomen, no commissions paid.

This formula with my family and a SUPER TALENTED, CREATIVE TEAM!! = SUCCESS and SECURITY.

Our life's mission: WORK! WORK! WORK!
To gain INSIGHT.
To receive and give INSTRUCTIONS.
for MONEY.

I have ALWAYS had a full time WORKING jobs since I was 13 years old. Most of the jobs I have had, approximately 80% were offered to me by strangers or from working relationships; 20% I had to submit a resume. Why did I change jobs? To LEARN something NEW! Most of the jobs I took, I took pay cuts; since I was 13 years to now, The few jobs where I was fired, I went to work on another job, same day or next day. I have with PRINTING, involved the development of a myriad of remarkable and very different SKILLS; the LEARNING and EXECUTION which gives me great satisfaction, purpose, fulfillment!

The JOY, HAPPINESS, SATISFACTION I get from WORKING and LEARNING puts MEANING and PURPOSE into my life. The THRILL is that my customers pay/paid me; to LEARN, to EXPLORE, to RESEARCH, to CREATE, to PLAY GAMES, to FIX PROBLEMS, to SOLVE PROBLEMS!!!

HAPPINESS in my life is
something to DO/WORK,
something to CREATE,
something to FIX,
something to TRY,
something to LOVE,
something to LEARN!!!
