Kevin Edington
Paint | Paint Product Specialist
 | 865.309.6846

Kevin has been in the Sign Industry for 20+ years with most of his experience being in paint. His interest in paint started in high school. "Paint is technical," says Kevin, "but if I can help simplify it for you as a painter or you as a purchasing agent, that’s my job – that’s the part I love."

A typical day for Kevin can include helping the GSG Sales Team with product solutions around paint formulas or which primer to use on specific substrates. You can also find him in sign shops helping to ensure paint equipment is being used efficiently.

When not at GSG, this father of five stays busy with attending baseball games and the occasional horse-riding event. And when he’s not there, he’s traveling in his RV. Have a paint question?
 

Jim Melancon
Digital & Color Matching | Digital Application Specialist
| 214.531.0000

Jim has been in the Digital Print industry for nearly 20 years. He began his career as a Finisher, worked his way up to an Operator and eventually became a Production Manager running print shops. "There's always something to learn in this industry and I'm able to pass on the knowledge that I’ve accumulated over the years."

With a background in graphic design, Jim's experience in art and graphics led to an interest in color management. He enjoys helping customers profile printers and strives to get the best color gamut possible.

When he's not at GSG, this new father spends most of his time with his son. He also enjoys woodworking and making furniture.

Mark Suhadolnik
Screen | Textile Application Specialist
| 214.712.6200

Mark has been in the Screen Printing industry for nearly 40 years. He started his journey when he was 10 years old printing t-shirts in his parents garage. His passion lies in the process of screen printing, "From creating the art to putting it on a shirt and people wanting to wear it, it really gave me the incentive to follow this as my career path," said Mark.

Mark's experience in the screen printing industry led him to GSG. A typical day for him includes R&D and product testing and working with our Sales Team to help customers with a wide variety of product solutions.

When he's not at GSG, he loves barbequing. Similar to screen printing, a good barbeque is another way to make people happy and he takes a lot of pride in the experience.

Need some assistance in screen printing?

Liz Beavers
Embroidery | Embroidery Territory Manager
 | 214.707.2161

Liz started in the Embroidery industry 30+ years ago. As a crafter who sold items on the weekend, Liz was intrigued by how embroidery could enhance the products she was creating. What began as just a hobby on the weekend turned into full time job where she owned her own shop. She loves being able to see the art come to life through digitalization.

"I can testify that I’ve found five different ways to do one thing wrong. So that's why I like to go out and teach so [others in the industry] can avoid the mistakes that I made as I was growing." There isn't a typical day for Liz but her favorite days are when she's helping customers learn.

Outside of GSG, Liz finds joy in watching the History Channel and traveling. She also enjoys home decorating and still has a home studio with sewing machines, embroidery and digitizing!

THE ANNETTE TIMMERMAN SALES AWARD


After a long battle with cancer, Annette died November 23, 2021. She was a shining star, extremely diligent and had a positive energy we all enjoyed being around. Many of us considered her a part of our family.

In honor of Annette, we created the Annette Timmerman Sales Award which will exemplify the tenants of her life: dedication, fighting spirit, grace and hard work.

We are inspired by her character and courage, and are blessed that she was a part of our GSG family. She will be greatly missed.

The first recipient of this award will be announced in December 2022.
