Making Hawaii Look Good In Print

By Shawna Ajimine
Company Sales Manager and Kapiolani Store Manager of Professional Image

One thing you’ll notice about the staff at Professional Image is their long-term employment. With only six years as a manager for the company, I’m still considered a “baby” next to employees who have been around for 10, 20, even 30 years. But that really says something about our company, and especially about our leadership.

Our owner, Helen Godwin, still works a full-time schedule, and never asks anything of her employees that she wouldn’t do herself.

Although we pride ourselves in the quality and wide variety of printing and graphics services we offer, excellent customer service is always our top priority. We try to accommodate every request we possibly can — even those last-minute walk-ins. There’s nothing more gratifying than a customer who leaves happy, and our repeat business and referrals from loyal customers show us that we’re doing it right!

We have seven convenient locations, three of which are open six days a week. We’ll even do overnight copying at no extra charge, and offer free pickup and delivery island-wide. Our prices also are very competitive, keeping mindful of our customers’ budgets.

I manage our Kapiolani store, but also serve as sales manager for the entire company, meeting with new clients, providing large project quotes and making sure our customer satisfaction remains high. I made it a point from the beginning to understand every aspect of this business and learn everything my employees do. This helps me be a better manager, team player and customer-service provider.

I consider myself truly fortunate to work for Professional Image. Helen is the best boss and really takes care of all 40-plus employees like family. I also believe it’s the main reason for our growth and success over the past 37 years of making Hawaii look good in print.

The April 1 Business Roundtable on Ohana Concrete Pumping neglected to state that, in the spring of 2012, the company completed a very large mat pour of more than 3,000 cubic yards in 12 hours. Symphony High Rise also will be one of the tallest in Honolulu and will stand at 45 stories upon completion.
