Wrapping up another year…
As we conclude another busy year, we want to thank you for your continued loyalty and trust.
This magical time of year holds a special place in our hearts. The first flakes of snow, the warm glow of a fire, the sweet taste of sugar cookies and the spreading of good cheer with family and friends.
So, it is fitting to express our most sincere appreciation to our clients and suppliers.
We sincerely enjoy working with you in the mutually beneficial business partnership that we share.
We wish you and yours a most happy holiday season and look forward to sharing another highly successful year with you in 2019.
While jolly folks around the world are wrapping Christmas gifts, Copresco is busy shrinkwrapping your books, manuals and publications.
We upgraded our shrinkwrapping department with the addition of a new Beseler system to ensure that your digital printing projects arrive in tip-top condition.
With Copresco’s shrinkwrapping process, a polymer plastic film is heated as it passes through the heat tunnel of the system.
This causes the plastic to shrink and conform to the shape of the book and creates a tight protective seal.
We can shrinkwrap virtually any of your projects for you. Some of the most commonly wrapped items are looseleaf publications which can be subject to damage in transit if inserted into ring binders before shipping.
Instead the contents are securely shrinkwrapped and packaged with the accompanying 3-ring binders.
Shrinkwrapping individual or multiple perfect or saddle bound books is another application. Wrapping adds an extra layer of protection during shipping.
Rachael Delgado operates Copresco’s newest Beseler shrinkwrapping system to organize and protect looseleaf manuals.
This yuletide treasure has been featured on Copresco’s website since 1994.
It’s a child’s 1897 inquiry about Santa Claus that puts the whole season into proper perspective.
“Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus” is a phrase from an editorial called “Is There a Santa Claus?”
The editorial appeared in the September 21, 1897, edition of The New York Sun.
Eight-year-old Virginia O’Hanlon wrote a letter to the Sun’s editor and the quick response was printed as an unsigned editorial.
The work of veteran newsman Francis Pharcellus Church has since become history’s most reprinted newspaper editorial, appearing in part or whole in dozens of languages in books, movies, and other editorials, and on posters and stamps.
Laura Virginia O’Hanlon was born on July 20, 1889, in New York City. Although divorced, she kept her ex- husband’s surname the rest of her life and was known as Laura Virginia O’Hanlon Douglas.
She received her Bachelor of Arts from Hunter College in 1910, a master’s degree in education from Columbia University in 1912, and a doctorate from Fordham University in 1930.
She started her career as an educator in 1912, became a junior principal in 1935, and retired in 1959.
According to reports, she received a steady stream of mail about her letter throughout her life. She would include a copy of the editorial in her replies. In an interview later in life, she credited it with shaping the direction of her life in a positive way.
We invite you to share this famous piece with your friends and family. during this joyous time of the year.
