UPDATE: WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THIS POSITION
We are moving to Acton, MA in late-October and we are looking for somebody to join us at our new location.
JOIN OUR TEAM
Smudge Ink is a design and letterpress printing business. We manufacture and sell greeting cards, gifts, and custom invitations. Our team is friendly, hardworking, and a little silly.
Help us continue to grow by bringing your organizational skills, attention to detail, and enthusiasm. This part-time position is a great opportunity for somebody who wants to learn more about letterpress printing and small business!
This is a part-time position with flexible hours Monday - Friday. We are looking for an assistant to work 8 -16 hours per week (exact hours TBD). Start date will be November 2019.
A shop assistant is a crucial part of our team and plays a major role in making sure our products are produced in a timely manner. Responsibilities include (but are not limited to):
Trimming plates and setting up folders: We use plates for the printing process. All plates need to be cut to size and organized.
Oiling presses and cleaning drip pans: Presses must be maintained and the work area needs to be cleaned regularly.
Paper cutter maintenance: Like the presses, our industrial paper cutter needs care including regular blade changes.
Prep and finishing work: This includes prep-cutting press sheets, finish trimming, gluing notepads, mixing inks, edge painting, and folding cards.
Cleaning up and recycling: The press room can get pretty messy when we're busy. To keep things moving, the shop assistant helps with tidying and keeping up with paper recycling.
Fulfillment assistance as needed: This may include shelving finished products and filling orders.
