Jere Coughlin saw immediate success when he printed the first edition of the Watertown Herald in 1886. Jere established a solid reputation as an expert printer. His competition admired his “painstaking care,” “grace of expression” and use of “unusually good paper.” Jere Coughlin’s attention to detail and high standards for quality set new standards for the upstate New York printing industry. Today, more than 130 years later, Coughlin continues to strive to achieve new levels of quality and innovation. Our heritage and experience allows us to understand the ever-changing business world and culture of the North Country.
Much has changed over the years, and we work hard to adapt and grow. Recently we have married many of our print products with their digital counterparts—brochures and ebrochures, printed books and ebooks, direct mail and email; the list goes on.
We are a husband and wife team who have found this adventure to be one of the best things we’ve ever done together (besides producing 3 charming sons). Working alongside each other, we are able to bring our vision to fruition for you to enjoy.
Jason is the mastermind behind Horizon Aerial Media Services. He purchased his first quadcopter in order to be able to determine which field the deer were in. He quickly realized the multitude of uses for this piece of equipment and the idea was born. Jason is in charge of safely flying the quadcopter within his line of sight.
Amanda was tasked with research and development, so to speak. She handles most everything but the flying. Amanda created the current business plan, marketing materials, sample presentations, flyers, brochures, business cards, forms, etc. Her Business Administration degree is finally being put to good use!
On site, Amanda is in charge of the camera from her tablet, controlling the gimbal, deciding when to use video and when to photograph. Amanda directs Jason as to where to fly the quadcopter – higher, lower, left, right, etc.
After filming is finished, she handles all of the editing of the photographs as well compiling the video footage into the finished product. Amanda also does the voiceover work on occasion as well as edits the photos, prints labels, burns the CD’s, packages them for delivery and anything else office related.
We take pride in our work and hope you enjoy the final product.
