KC Royals contract helps Pittsburg company stay busy

Updated:

Pittcraft Printing in Pittsburg already prints for major teams in the region, including the KU Jayhawks, Kansas City Chiefs and Pittsburg State University athletics.  Now they are also printing for the Kansas City Royals.

While the Royals have struggled in the beginning of this baseball season the presses are hot in Pittsburg with programs for the rest of the season.

"I'm a baseball fan and it's fun to say we're the printers for the Royals," says production supervisor Joe Ulery.  "Typically this is a slow time of the year for us.  So really, in most businesses, in this day and age, worrying about getting the job done and having too much work to do is actually a good stress."

30,000 to 40,000 programs are printed each day in preparation for game day.

"They're going to start that game with or without that program so we got to definitely make sure everybody pulls their weight and gets everything done on time," Ulery says.

It's a three year contract with the major league team that started in October, and Pittcraft General Manager Tim Collar loves what he sees.

"You go to a Royals game and you see our signage and you go and get your program," Collar says.  "You see our boxes and someone says our home town prints all the items for the Royals.  It's just kind of a proud factor."

It's that pride in the company's work Collar hopes that will keep the relationship going between Pittcraft and the Royals beyond the existing deal.

"It's a great feeling of just that our community gets to share in the fact that the professional sports teams product is being produced in Pittsburg, Kansas," Collar says.

Since the company has a new team to bat for they want the bats to get hot and printers to get hotter.

Collar says Pittcraft is also going to be the printer for Major League Baseball's All Star Game.  The company is already starting to work on books that will go to all the team owners.
