Tiny Planet Ink is adding to the team and we want you to join us! We are a small print shop located north of downtown Denver and we are currently looking to add a talented, hard-working member to our staff. The ideal candidate will have some screen printing experience and the ability to take on all aspects of the process. This would include pre-press digital separation in Illustrator and preparing transparencies for screen burning. This position would require both time at the computer as well as in the shop making the actual products. Owning a laptop and being proficient in both Illustrator and Photoshop would be a big leg-up. Depending on the candidate, this would be roughly 20-30% computer time with the rest being in production and cleaning.

We run both manual and automatic presses with the majority of our jobs being completed on the manual presses for a variety of different reasons. As a small shop, we all pitch in for different phases of the screen print process. This includes printing, folding, organizing, and cleaning. Not every day is the same here and being flexible enough to bounce around and take on whatever the task at hand may be is a big plus. Having a car and a willingness to run occasional errands is also needed. These are usually within 3 to 5 miles of our shop and are typically a run to the post office or a customer delivery.

The number of hours is somewhat flexible. For the next month or so it would most likely be between 25 and 35 hours a week depending on workload and how much of your skill-set can be utilized in different ways. I anticipate this being closer to 35-40 most weeks starting towards the end of May as you get more up to speed with the way we operate. At this point we could offer either a set schedule or a flexible schedule depending on what would work best for you.

As a way to turn your hourly position into more money in your pocket we offer a finder's fee for every job you bring in. Tell all of your friends and family about us and help promote what we do and you can add to your wallet! Land a big fish and this bonus can be great!

Some of the characteristics that would make you the right fit are:
-Hard-working, efficient, and energetic with the desire to constantly improve
-Not being obsessed with your phone
-Owning and being proficient with Illustrator and Photoshop
-You are a good artist
-At least some printing experience
-You are humble and willing to take directions based on the way we like to do things
-Flexible with your daily schedule (sometimes we need to stay 15-30 minutes late)
-You like cleaning and organizing
-You can climb an 8 foot ladder
-You can lift 50 pounds
-You are fine with repetitive tasks
-Attention to detail even after a long day of printing
-Ability to find a higher gear when a deadline is approaching fast! Friday's are usually pretty busy and being able to move double-time a good portion of the day is often needed.
-You have some good jokes and clever banter
-You like listening to a fair amount of guitar-based music (My Morning Jacket, Grateful Dead) Occasionally this will be loud.
-Good with color and color theory
-Being excited to learn new things and take on challenges
-You have great endurance and are rarely tired/hungover
-A laid back, easy going personality and are enjoyable to be around


If you kick-ass and work hard I am a really easy and very fair boss but my expectations are high. I am looking for a rock star and someone with a great work ethic and not someone who is just trying to "milk the clock." We have a lot of fun here and really want whoever joins our staff to fit in. Having a positive attitude and drive to put in a good days work will really help make you a good addition.

If you are interested please send me your resume and tell me why you think you'd be a good fit for Tiny Planet Ink. We are looking to fill this position within the next week or so. I will look over resumes for a few days and then look to get someone hired immediately. Thanks for your interest!
