PrintreeTT, Supporting People and Their Passion Projects 

 

We have been hearing a lot lately about passion projects, these are things that we have always wanted to get done, that we dabbled a bit in on the weekends or our free time but we never gave it the focus it deserved. In Trinidad and Tobago, under the advisement of the Government, we are asked to stay home to help flatten the curve to end the COVID-19 spread. At PrintreeTT we noticed an increase in persons ordering photo books to showcase the portfolio of their works and in the space of a month we have partnered with two Local Authors to assist with the launching of their debut novels.  

 

Since our inception over two years ago, PrinTreeTT has always been a supporter of the local arts and artists. We consider our platform the perfect pairing for individuals looking to express themselves creatively and offer a wide variety of channels for them to do so. When the opportunity presented itself, we were happy to partner with persons who were looking to tell their stories through print.  Our Business Development Manager, Nekesha Bartholomew-Ramey, led the initiative in this arena, “I remember seeing Jamila Bannister posting on LinkedIn that she would be publishing her branding e-book. I reached out to her to inquire -why not have a hardcopy of the book?- It was through conversation that I was able to put together a plan that would be mutually beneficial for all involved. We then partnered with Daniel Francis, author of The Millennial Mind. Even though these have been remote relationships, we are reaping the rewards of teamwork in these trying times”.

As a young company, being agile is of utmost importance. We were the first to bring Online Print-On-Demand to the Caribbean, and we want to continue being a company of firsts. A company that can enact decisions and pivot within a short space of time. Having met with our first author, internally as a team we decided on the best way forward for PrinTree to partner effectively with authors. Jamila Bannister gushes about her experience with the PrinTree Team by saying “I was so happy to work with PrinTree on this project. The cost to produce my book was reasonable, the quality is great, and I have it locally available for persons to buy and have it delivered to them- that for me was the seller.”  Quality control, high-quality output, delivering on time and top tier customer service remains our focus.  

 

The recent pandemic has surfaced a new spectrum of needs for everyone. Businesses have been required to implement innovative strategies that meet these needs and new circumstances of the “usual markets. That is what we mean when we talk about “Pivoting”. PrintreeTT continues to work with businesses (from entrepreneur to conglomerate). Let us all continue to showcase our adaptability and resiliency in this new climate so that we can pivot to success as a community.
