About Wes Yohey

Seems every position I've worked in over the past 35 years has been a stepping stone to Blue-Collar Graphics.

My high school grocery job introduced me to the retail industry and, well, work.

Post high school, along with my newly aquired ball-n-chain, my father helped us start a commercial cleaning service. Growing to nearly 20 employees, this provided valuable insight to the challenges for small businesses (particularly bookkeepping!).

Working through a technical degree in the printing industry, I first worked in a couple shipping and logistics positions before getting my first sales and marketing position as a Graphic Artist at a lawn and garden manufacturer. This position provided a wide variety of sales and marketing projects while expanding my retail industry experience, working with some of the country's largest retail chains.

I also got my first taste of web technology here. Working on one of the first content management systems, I updated the company web site with various updates and announcements. At the same time, I worked with Home Depot, Ace, Sears and others to organize product data and imagery for their first internet retail sites.

Following this position, I worked a short stint at a large printing company expanding my printing industry knowledge.

After that, I landed a spot at another lawn and garden manufacturer, but was coming to the realization that print marketing was becoming secondary to the emerging web marketing. Given the volatile job market, I set about learning some web technologies... and none too soon.

Laid off a month before the financial crisis hit, we (wife and I) launched Blue-Collar Graphics as a Print Marketing and Creative Services company to keep some money coming in. Soon after, I'd learned enough web technology to launch a company website complete with Javascript and PHP. This was followed soon after by a site I developed and donated to a local Catholic Church...we're on the web!

Now with a few dozen websites under our belts, we can now provide a pretty comprehensive sales and marketing package to a wide range of businesses and industry.
