Who is Steve Butler?
Hello! I am the Print Director of Genesis Imaging and I am the person responsible for maintaining consistency and quality across our print services, on a range of media.
Could you please tell us about your professional background?
Sure! I’ve been printing for over thirty years. My first job was as a black and white printing technician in a small lab in Swindon. From there, I moved to the local newspaper which gave me the experience of working to tight deadlines and equipped me with the skills to do so.
I really loved large format printing, and a move to London threw me back into the darkroom, and later into digital. I was the Print Manager of a quite prominent lab on North End Road over 20 years ago, but my lab’s lack of interest in digital – and Genesis Imaging’s forward-thinking attitude – made me move on to a new position in Genesis, and I haven’t looked back. I was happy to work my way up again as a C-type printing technician, knowing this company had a bright future.
