Faces of Kingston: Aaron Pacyau

This month we’re highlighting Aaron Pacyau, Kingston’s Mailing Services Manager. Between ensuring that printing jobs are picture AND mail perfect, plus keeping busy with four young adults, Aaron is a pretty busy guy! Learn more below.

  1. When and why did you join the Kingston team?

I joined the team in March of 2017. I had the same title for a printing company in Las Vegas and got a phone call from a good friend saying that “The owner of the printing company I work for is looking for some help in his mailing department” and forwarded me Kyle’s (Johnson, Owner) phone number. My family and I were always open to moving back to Kansas, so I gave him a call immediately, and two weeks later, I was part of the Kingston Printing team.

  1. What is your favorite part about your job?

It’s the combination of doing computer work and operating machines that makes this a dream position. I never feel confined to an office chair or leashed to a machine. I also very much enjoy collaborating with production management to make sure we hit impossible deadlines and tight turns. Every decision-maker in this company are on the same page and we can easily come together to fulfill orders in a timely manner.

  1. Coolest print project you ever worked on and why?

When I worked in Nevada I had to mail a high-limit Black Jack tournament mailer with a voucher with values ranging from $100,000 to $1,000,000. The piece itself took some die-cut wizardry and the paper stock felt like money.

  1. Favorite machine and why?

I do very much enjoy my inkjet table, especially when I can place my tab-machine inline and make a two-pass job into one. We can run some jobs at 20,000 pieces an hour, which means more time at home with family.

  1. Any tidbits about yourself outside of work – kids? Hobbies? Fun facts?

I was born and raised in Kaneohe, Hawaii. My heart lead me to Kansas when I was 23. I am a father to triplet 16 year-old girls and a 20 year-old son. I have a passion for sound-engineering and have worked with various artists world-wide. All in all nice guy.
