Interview Tidbit - Amy Voloshin of Print Fresh

(samples from their vintage archive)

On this exciting book journey we have the pleasure of interviewing nearly 100 women who are running interesting, inspiring, and innovative companies. While we of course will be including lots of details in the book and discussing the interviews over the next year, in the meantime we wanted to share a few tidbits from each amazing interview!

To kick off our first Philadelphia interview day, we visited Amy Voloshin at Print Fresh. This amazing company designs prints and textiles that are then sold to all sorts of stores - ranging from department stores to Anthropologie for them to use in their clothes and fabric products. It was awesome to see their offices, which included a design room, screen printing room, and vintage fabric archive!

Aside from serious envy about this very cool job, here are a few things we walked away with:

Amy - I found it so heartwarming that Amy feels she is working in her dream job because she is creatively fulfilled - and that this self created "dream job" is her deliberate act of creating work that works best for her!

Adelaide - Relinquishing control is a challenge for most entrepreneurs, but I was struck by how comfortably Amy began hiring people right from the beginning. She has and is considering many growth options for the firm and she knows that each of them require getting the right talent at the table.

Thank You, Amy!
