Tommy Sfeir

Lead Pressman

One of our most senior team members Tommy’s presses are the busiest in the building. Starting as the 1 and 2 color Pressman and working his way up to Lead Pressman, there isn't an offset job that Tommy doesn't see. Working on presses like the Ryobi and Heidelburg for 23 years, Tommy is a true expert in his craft.  Tommy helps bring these jobs to life by meticulously matching exact Pantone ink colors, making small adjustments on the press, and in the end, crafting beautiful offset print work on an array of quality paper stocks. His strong work ethic and attention to detail are one of the many reasons the prints coming out of Park Press are so brilliant. The character of a good offset print heavily depends on the pressman that’s printing it, and Tommy consistently shines while turning out Park Press’ signature forte of press work. He’s not all business, however, off the press he’ll be laughing and joking around with everyone at the office, providing some much-needed flavor to the sometimes hectic print shop schedule. His interests include spending time with his family, barbecuing and attending Lebanese-American functions.
