Our Clients Say It Best

It was an exceptional piece of customer service.

Subject: Mishkin Gallery’s Thomas Child exhibition.

Dear George,

I’ve been meaning to drop you a note expressing my appreciation for the extra measure of quality and service that Harty applied to the printed invitation for the Mishkin Gallery’s Thomas Child exhibition.

As projects go, the invitation was a small one, yet you bothered to wash up a press and change colors mid-stream to perfect a tricky duotone color match. It was an exceptional piece of customer service, and a demonstration of outstanding skill by Harty’s pressmen.

I’d also like to let you know that Sandra Kraskin, the gallery’s director, was very impressed with the result, as was the New York Times, which saw fit to review the exhibition after it received the invitation.

Harty continues to be a meticulous and dedicated creative partner, for which you have my thanks.

Sincerely,

Mark Schnapper

Kudos from your peers

November 26, 2016

Subject: THANKS!

Hi George:

Just want to say thanks for the outstanding print job on the Madison Flower Shop deluxe magazine. Our client is extremely pleased as am I and our photographer, Tom Hopkins.

One of the greatest compliments for professionals in any field is kudos from our peers. I have heard from other designers how impressed they are the printed piece.

As you know, I was nervous about printing high quality images on an uncoated sheet, but the press proof allayed my fears and I couldn’t be happier with the final piece.

Thank you for your help and encouragement!

Regards,

You’re only as good as the people that support you

One of the most important lessons I’ve learned from running my own business for 20 years is this: you’re only as good as the people who support you.

George Platt and his entire team at Harty Integrated Solutions have been my champions and trusted support since the mid 1990s, and our relationship continues to be strong today. From printing and mailing services through to providing solid business growth strategies and advice, I know I can reply on George to get it right the first time.

One thing that makes him truly unique is the way he becomes your partner. To George, nothing is ever just a “project.” Rather, he approaches each assignment holistically, recognizes what I have at stake, looks at things through my eyes, and stops at nothing to ensure my success.

He is exceptionally knowledgeable, a consummate professional, kind and fair, and in business to build and maintain long-term relationships based on service and trust. I know I can depend on George to support me no matter what.

Tremendous work on our Good Design Studio catalog

Dear George and Gang:

Just a note to thank you again for the tremendous work you did on our Good Design Studio catalog. I officially introduced the catalog to our sales management team at a conference in Orlando, on February 1st. I shipped a number of catalogs to the conference center so that I could review the book in detail during a breakout presentation I led. I wish you could have been there to hear the reaction. Suffice it to say, we have a winner. The sales managers were eager to take the catalogs with them, and they’ve been ordering copies for their sales teams, ever since.

I was in Portland, Oregon last week, calling on architectural and interior design professionals. During those calls, I distributed our new catalog. It’s the first time I’ve seen customers respond to the books, and the response was exactly as I’d hoped it would be. Principals at two architectural practices sat with the books in their laps, slowly turning every page. They poured over the content and enjoyed the read. The print quality is truly captivating. You printed a page-turner for us, Guys, and I know that it didn’t happen by accident.

I’ll never know the full extent of the resources that you devoted to this project, but I’m well aware that you managed the effort with a singular commitment to excellence and with great personal care. The bar was extremely high, and from the start, it was apparent that this project mattered as much to you as it did to me. Your Pressmen are prices among men. And George, I don’t think you missed a single sheet during the press check, including the UV check in Bridgeport. The logistics on this project were absolutely flawless. I was , and am, so grateful for the exceptional guidance and care.

Sincere and heartfelt thanks – and hugs – to the whole Harty Team. You are exceptional, and I appreciate you.

I’d like to tell you a remarkable story

Dear Colleague,
I’d like to tell you a remarkable story.
It’s about a printing and marketing company that has done incredible things for me at Yale-New Haven Hospital. You may find it helpful in your work, which is similar to mine.
Here’s the story.
About eight years ago, we were looking for a vendor to take on printing projects for our hospital. I needed a company who could print and mail our annual reports, fundraising mailers, event promotions, newsletters, booklets — it’s a long list.
After much research, I chose Harty Integrated Solutions. They do printing and mailing for 13 hospitals in the Tri-State area, so I wanted a vendor who knew all the ins and outs of our industry.
They do tremendous work. I wish you could see the response I get from the materials Harty prints and mails for us. It’s always exactly what I’m hoping for. The quality is truly captivating.
On top of the fair pricing and fast turnaround, Harty has an in-house proofreader, which is something I’ve never seen with other printers. Her editorial services are part of every project, at no extra charge, and she always makes me look good. It’s one less thing I have to worry about.
The bar for quality and price is extremely high for what we do at Yale-New Haven Hospital, and Harty always delivers. They are more than a vendor. They are a partner.
I am very grateful for their exceptional service and I recommend Harty to you.
You can find them online at www.Hartynet.com. Or you can contact the president, George Platt, by phone at (203) 562-5112 or email at gplatt@hartynet.com.
Sincerely,

Thank You So Very Much

I can’t thank you all enough for the amazing work you have done on the catalog. It is so beautiful, I think that it is the best that we’ve ever made. You are all magicians, all so good. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your dedication and attention to detail. Every page looks like our team’s labor of love.

Love, Jo

Successful Marketing Business Plan

Right from the start, Harty impressed me with your efficient and professional manner. We needed an effective marketing plan to increase our membership and to increase loan volume. The Marketing Business Plan that you developed for our credit union included strategies and creative solutions to generate the results we were looking for.

Our first Home Equity Loan campaign generated a ROI in the first year of 802%!! Absolutely incredible! Our credit union ended the year with positive growth due in part to Harty’s marketing campaigns. Our current HELOAN campaign has already generated results in the first week. We look forward to another great HELOAN Spring and Summer! By partnering with Harty, we have been able to show consistent growth in both membership and loan volume. You have been there every step of the way to ensure our success. I want to thank everyone for all their help. My experience with Harty and their team confirms to me that we’ve made the right choice by choosing the best strategic partner we could. Thank you again!

Harty delivers on rush Open Enrollment mailer

I wanted to relay a recent win for Harty Press. I was working with another vendor on a set of open enrollment materials for the MEA OE Campaign for Maine Educator’s Association. One of the materials was a direct mailer that was going to just under 40,000 members. Somewhat late in the game (after prepress work was underway) the vendor informed me that they would not be able to make the required drop date of 5/1. I got this news on Friday, April 26th just before 5PM. Given this news, I had to find a vendor immediately who I could move the project to since the drop date was not negotiable. This gave the new vendor just 2 working days to secure paper, create proofs, print, and drop in the mail.

Harty came through. I called John, gave him the details and he said they would make it happen. This was no simple direct mailer: it was a 26.75 x 11 10-panel, double parallel gatefold with double wafer seal piece, printed on 80# coated cover, printing 4/4 full bleed and was distributing to 6 different rate bands – so 6 unique versions + samples. So the job was complex and required 6 sets of proofs per rate band for approval plus a photo showing the fold. I was amazed that they could take it on and accomplish it given the limited amount of time left to do so. Harty saved the project!

Terrific job under such short notice and pressure

Thank you to you and your crew for doing a terrific job under such short notice and pressure from a nonprofit that was asking for the sun, moon and the stars! The job came out better than I thought it would. It goes to show that the ones responsible for the end results have to be on the top of their game, and you certainly were.

Working with Harty was an excellent call!

Ultimately Rewarding Experience

Thank you for the excellent service we received from Harty Integrated Solutions. Your people patiently explored many options with me. I have never had such good service, and the printed documents just look beautiful. Sending a color document was a difficult problem on my side, but Harty made it a pleasant and ultimately rewarding experience.

State of Connecticut Healthcare Enrollment

I write to thank you for another successful year in printing and mailing the State of Connecticut Healthcare Options Planners to our employees and retirees. This year we worked together to create a more functional layout and we requested Harty to design a more creative cover and you certainly delivered. We have received many compliments on the new design and layout. Last but not least and most importantly Harty upheld your commitment to us and mailed the project on the date required.

Impressive Presentation

The campaign folder, brochure and map all look beautiful and make an impressive presentation together. Greenhill folks received all the materials on Thursday last week, and were very pleased with them. They say their launch went off without a hitch and they are handing out packets left and right.

Thank you for all your careful attention to this project.

You and your staff did an excellent job on my publication. The whole experience was excellent. Your printing crew and color experts did a phenomenal job, maybe the best in my 18 years.

Extension Of My Staff

This requires that my vendors become an extension of my staff, where I rely heavily on you to double-check my instructions and files, as well as raise questions when necessary. Harty’s attention to detail has surpassed my expectation.
