The 2009 Sharper Impressions Painting Annual Painting Seminar
Gearing up for the 2009 year with Sharper Impressions Painting, 18 managers from different areas gathered together for our annual training and spring season kick off seminar. Even with the unfortunate recession of 2008 our SALES were up!
Unleashed during our training was a new four step process to increase our quality to keep our loyal customers happy and satisfied. We have developed a full time quality management system, which insures that our customers are happy throughout their entire experience with us, from beginning to end.

We are now working with PPG, Porter and Pittsburgh Paints. Our warranties are longer, and we are now using a higher grade of paint, resulting in a longer lasting paint job, as well as a paint that is very flexible with different seasonal temperatures. Also, our paint is going green! All of our paint is latex, with low VOC’s, which will help keep harmful chemicals from being released into the air. This keeps our customers and their families and our painters and managers safe. Also in the spirit of going green this 2009, we have changed all of our marketing materials to recycled paper. We have even extended our warranties because the special formulated paints and materials we use are so long lasting. You can read more about the paints and products here: http://www.porterpaints.com/ and http://www.pittsburghpaints.com/.
New this year is our Voice of Color system that we have partnered with Porter and Pittsburgh Paints. You can actually take a personality test online and the website will recommend new, fresh paint colors that match your personality! Click here to give it a try: www.voiceofcolor.com.

2009 will be another great year for our painting business as a outstanding BBB member and accredited painting contractor. We are proud to report a solid A ranking. This is extremely difficult to obtain, and even harder to keep. We are happy to report that 97% of our customers would have us back to paint for them again, and would also recommend us to family and friends for their painting services. See our ranking at www.bbb.org.
With the stressful economy last year, we are lucky and hardworking enough to have another year of growth. We have added 8 new employees, and our proud to offer a company 401K package and top tier health insurance coverage. Along with our new team members, we have also obtained a new office. We now own our own office complex. It took one year to design and build this modern technology inspired space, and we are happy to call it home. See a panoramic photo of our new office space below!
We are encouraged to report that we will be a three time recipient of the Inc. Magazine 5000. This is reserved for the fastest growing private companies in America! To be awarded the Inc 5000 award for three straight years is an amazing accomplishment that we need to thank our customers and employees for.
