My early work experience began at the age of eleven at a restaurant called Country Boys. Immediately I knew I loved working with people and multitasking, the busier it was the more I loved it. In 1998 I married my high school sweet heart Chris Vinson. I left the restaurant after graduation and worked at Sears where I started selling lingerie. While there I was also a store trainer, a Human Resource manager, and finally the Office Manager. In 2003 we grew our family to include our daughter Cassidy. After leaving Sears I worked for five years as the Administrative Assistant of Dot Inman Johnson of CACAA. At that time I was a customer of Budget Printing but that all changed one evening as I picked up a job…pun intended! In 2006 I joined the Budget Printing team. My earlier years put me on the opposite side of the counter of the printing business as a purchaser of printed products. That gave me an insight from the customer's perspective, and it was very beneficial. It was in 2008 that we had our son Dragan. I started at Budget as an Office Assistant to Tom and after learning multiple other facets of the company in 2018 I became an owner and the company President. In my personal time, I love to cook and spend time with my family. My favorite thing to eat is chocolate. And I like working in my yard where my favorite plants are my lemon tree and roses.
Bonita, Graphics Supervisor
I was born in Covington, Kentucky and grew up in the Kissimmee, Florida area where I began in printing while still in high school, working at the local newspaper. After only a few months, I was promoted to Production Manager, not long after my 18th birthday in 1981. After the newspaper was sold, I went to work for a print shop, Jordan/Norris Printing. From there, I have worked for several print shops and publishers, learning various new skills with each transition.
I moved to Live Oak, Florida in 2000, mainly to escape the tourists near Walt Disney World, but then decided to make Tallahassee my home in 2003. I started working at Budget Printing in 2004, left for a couple of years, but came back in 2009. I thoroughly love what I do and making people happy. I have one son, Michael Milliken, born in 1984, who is a Catastrophe Insurance Adjuster. In my spare time, I love to read, go to concerts and travel.
Travis, Press Supervisor
Hi, I'm Travis Desmore, just to tell you a little about me. Well, I've been in the printing business since I was 11. My mother and father started a business in Thomasville Georgia, and I learned the trade when I was young. Every day after school and every summer, I was at work! The first press I learned how to run was a Miele Vertical Letterpress. I couldn't hardly even see over the top of the delivery!
From there I just kept learning the printing business. I am happy with my career, though it has not always been easy, but sometimes the harder road leads to better success! I wouldn't take anything for my journey! I have learned that God is good all the time!
I have recently been blessed by being able to travel to Bali, Indonesia twice in the last year. I am looking forward to when Dewi can come to the United States and we can spend the rest of our lives together! I was able to meet her family, and they are the most amazing and lovable people beyond measure!

Chrissy, Sales and Digital Marketing
I'm originally from the Midwest. Moved around quite a bit during my career in news broadcast journalist for a little over a decade. Landed in Tallahassee, Florida to be closer to family who live in South Florida and was a News Anchor at the local ABC Affiliate for 3 years. During my time as News Anchor, I started my own business/art studio called Kitschy Wearable Art, where our mission is to make art accessible and visible in our everyday lives.
