“Being involved in the development and testing of new professional software is my way of staying on the cutting edge and having access to the latest software at least 18 months prior to their public release. It also gives me opportunity to help improve the new software and deliver to my accounts the most advanced options.”

Pam is our artistic director and is not only is one of the founders of our company she also is the inspiration for its name.
Pams Press had been started by Pam and Bob Friedman in 1974, originally as a proof press business, creating newspapers, newsletters and signage for local business. Pams Press Graphic Design also provided marketing, graphic design, logo creation, branding strategies and imagery. Pam had been and still remains an innovator in print media and branding.
In 1995 Pam introduced “promotional products on demand”. This new technology called dye sublimation printing allowed full color printing to be done digitally one at a time on many items. The ability to print one at a time and in full color allows for personal customization on each piece. The possibilities are endless.
Over the years, Pam’s interest in artistry and technology has taken her down many paths, and being an exceptional businesswoman she knew that the Internet would be the next big thing.
In 1996, Pam took Pam’s Press to the next level by offering web design & multi media presentation creation keeping in pace with her motto: Learning should never cease, one stays on top by keeping in touch with the times.
Pam is involved in all aspects of the creation process and oversees every account.
Pam is the wife of Robert Friedman and is proud to have also raised two wonderful daughters Joy and Sara.
PS: Anyone want to buy a used proof press & wood type?
Sara has been infatuated with computers and programming in 1983 when the first Commodore 64 walked in the door.
After years of intense education, in 1996 Sara’s interest went directly towards the Internet where she was among the first wave of web designers and Internet junkies.
After spending years as a designer, Sara’s interests started to point to the search engines. Sara immediately saw the unlimited marketing opportunities the search engines could provide business.
It was crystal clear to Sara that the only way a business web site could be truly successful is if it were high on the search engine search results. Sara now had to know what made them tick and how to get on the top became her next adventure.
For the past 5 years Sara spent her time developing and testing cutting edge Internet marketing technology and carefully blending it with traditional off line marketing techniques. The end result proves to be a very successful and cost effective SEO (Search Engine Optimization) Internet marketing program.
Sara’s Internet marketing talents enables Pams Press Graphic Design to not only provide custom web development but to include the option of custom cost effective Internet marketing programs. Programs where you know your total cost up front and are not exposed to the perils of sponsored pay per click programs.”
