- We welcome Jen Rose this month as our new Lead Buyer. A graduate of Judson University in Elgin, Ill., where she majored in visual communications and fine art, Jen comes to us with a decade of experience in print and manufacturing, where her specialty was prepress and process management. In her new position, Jen will manage quoting, pricing, scheduling, and purchasing all adult print book products, both new titles and reprints. We’re very happy to have her!
