Job Opportunity

Illustrator and separations knowledge would be a big plus. We have a Mock Up / Comp / Digital Print Department here. So we are needing to fill a position that would be hands on in the Production Process and could also set up files for structure and print. Of course we will train to fit the role but again strong illustrator knowledge for sure separations knowledge would be a plus.

Please email Lee at lee.whitmarsh@tamuc.edu if you are interested.
