Friend of Media Award
The 2018 “Friend of Media Award” was presented at the 32nd Student Niner Media Awards of Excellence program. The program was held April 28,2018, at The University of North Carolina Charlotte in the Popp-Martin Student Union. It was given by Niner Media.
Mullen Publications was presented with the “Friend of Media Award” given to a community member or business team who supports our mission through actions and support.
Beginning in the summer of 2017, we started working with Mullen Publications as our new printer. We worked closely with staff throughout the summer to create new page sizes for all of our issues and special sections; all new ad sizes for those issues; deadlines and printing schedules. What seemed like an overwhelming amount of work, at the time, proved to be seamless once the semester began and the issues were published. It was because of the dedication to excellent customer service and quality printing, that our transition was so smooth. We truly appreciate the guidance and support provided by this Friend of the Media. Wayne Maikranz, Niner Media Director presented the award.
Thanks for your work throughout this year.
Sincerely, Wayne Maikranz

I was excited for the students to see the press, meet your leadership team and realize that there are industry professionals willing to assist them. We truly enjoy working with you all and can’t wait to get the year off to a great start. The printing job on our Welcome Back issue is amazing. Thank you all for taking the time to make sure our products are top quality.

I just have to tell you how absolutely fantastic this issue looks in terms of printing. These newspapers couldn’t look better. Of course, I also loved the others you did as well. I’m still staring at a copy going through each page not believing what a wonderful job you all have done. I look forward to our continued partnership. I also want to thank everyone for being so patient with me through this whole process. I am so glad I made the move to partner with you for our printing. Thanks so much for all you do.
Oh my goodness yes… our paper has NEVER looked this good!
Thank you… thank you… thank you.
Can’t wait for the staff to see it – they’ll be arriving shortly. 😉

Our paper was picked as the Overall Best High School Newspaper in New York State by the New York Press Association last year and I believe that the excellent job you do printing our paper played a key role in being picked as the best!

Mullen does 5 publications for us at LINC, Inc. I personally have 17 years in the business and they are one of the best I’ve ever seen in terms of print quality. Their turnaround time from receipt of our files to finished product is excellent. I highly recommend them.
It is absolutely beautiful! Color is perfect; everything is sharp and crisp! The kids are thrilled. We had way more artwork to go with the pictures this time and it is all perfectly registered. Thank you. You are a MASTER!!!!!!!!
We couldn’t be happier about our printing relationship with Mullen Publications. As a small nonprofit with unique printing needs, we need to work with a printer that not only operates by the highest standards but also understands who we are as an organization and the importance of printing to that mission. We have found exactly that at Mullen. The team at Mullen is attentive, highly professional and extremely responsive. And the turn-around times are amazing!

I just wanted to thank you for working with us this year. I’m graduating in a few days and leaving the paper in someone else’s hands, so I just wanted to express my gratitude for all the help you’ve given me and my staff with Adobe InDesign and Photoshop. You’ve definitely managed to make our paper better than when we sent it to you. I think our newspaper looks awesome. It’s been wonderful working with you, and I truly appreciate all that you have done to help our paper be the best it can be (or better). Thank you,
They provide excellent service. The quality of the printing is really good. Also they are really easy to work with.

Dear Robert & Mullen Publications,
We would like to thank you for the paper upgrade for our 100th anniversary on April 1. Because of your generosity, we were able to celebrate this milestone with a centennial issue that looked absolutely amazing. Thank you for your support of our publication over the years. We look forward to working with Mullen for many years to come.
Sincerely, The Staff of the Davidsonian
Thanks so much for your extra efforts with our publication this week as we used the dinky for a pullout. Your advice on how to orient the pages and your attention to detail to make sure it all came out right are very much appreciated. At The Home News, we continue to be pleased to have found Mullen Publications.
Have a great day.
The papers look awesome! The quality is way beyond our previous printers that I can’t say enough about how drastically an improvement it is! Seriously GREAT WORK!

Mullen Publications is a great partner for our bi-monthly publication. When asked, they generously share their technical expertise offering suggestions on enhancing the look of our work. They always provide quick turnaround on the printing, delivering when they say they will. Mullen is easy to work with and every member of their team is available when we need to ask a question. That is first-class customer service.

I have worked with Mullen Publications for 15 plus years, and have never had a problem…all employees are friendly, courteous, and more than willing to do anything they can to help make my publication wonderful. Even when I mess something up, they always come to my rescue, and the workmanship and quality is always excellent. I do not know what I would without them! I hope our working relationship lasts for many, many years to come…..it surely will on my part.
