Our Printer is on Vacation

June 12, 2013

DTS was working feverishly the other week in order to put together several manuals for the Tennessee Department of Transportation. In total, 7 manuals were prepared and printed with 25 copies of each manual. The amount of pages printed succeeded 30,000 pages and took one week to print.

Our printer may be on vacation from all the use but our team at DTS never tires of working hard and getting the job done right for our Clients!

As you can see these manuals have been received and are ready to be put to good use at the Tennessee Department of Transportation.

*No printers were harmed in the printing of these manuals.

Next time you see us on the road; remember, you’re not alone.
