Oklahoma Folding Carton (OFC) is the only locally owned folding carton plant in Oklahoma, competing with the big boys but prefer to fill the void left for smaller orders and a more personalized experience. We are in need of an experienced Prepress person, with a vision to the future, to replace the retiring Prepress Grandpa. This is not a training position. You will be responsible for file preparation to plate and print on a Komori L640 6 color press. Working knowledge of offset printing and Adobe Illustrator and the Creative applications are a must. Knowledge of Harlequin/Navigator RIP is not required but helpful. Must be able to manage your time. Employing approx 20-25 people, mostly in the production plant, the office staff is small and the Prepress position is a one-person job. 40 hour work week. OFC offers a competitive wage, vacation and group insurance. Only qualified applicants please. Our website has not been updated in a couple of years so don't judge our company based on the website (I haven't had the time to update the site - something else that I do!).

These 2 aspects do not often go together.

Yeah, I struggled with that one.
But hey, I've been here 10 years. I have 4 weeks of vaca a year!

I have zero desire to ever in my life visit, let alone ever live in, Oklahoma. But I do like the position. Can I work remotely from CA?

I moved from Washington state 14 years ago. Didn't think I'd like Oklahoma. But I tell you, the people are the friendliest I've ever met. I wouldn't want to live in OKC or a big city, but small town life grows on ya. Much less of a stressful drive in the morning. Good people, gas is 2.95 a gallon for ethanol free. Energy costs are about the cheapest in the nation. Rent is $675 for a 3 bed house. College football on Saturday. Nuf said.

"Rent is $675 for a 3 bed house"
Wow! you can't rent a bedroom for that here in San Diego.
I have seen a bit of OK, I used to be a cowboy in the Summers in McLean TX. It's a dry county so we had to drive to OK to buy beer.

My friend had a horse and she had me ride it around the ring
I felt sorry for the horse    :laugh:

Yeah, I won't get on sad, broken-down rental horses at disreputable places that don't give them great care.
I will ride an ornery old boy that does no work 50 weeks / year and only trots... sideways!  :rotf:

When I was in high school a nearby farm had two horses I made friends with. I'd give them treats. You haven't lived until you've seen horses eat watermelon. Talk about sloppy!

In my 'burb, certain barnyard animals are allowed. Many, many people I know have chickens and rabbits. Some have goats. Our neighbor across the street and down a few houses have a horse. It's a therapy horse, and the lady rides it up an don the street once a week. The kids love it.
