Pioneers in pigskin and pressure seal systems
When I played football as a kid, the only females involved in the pigskin sport* were moms who spent countless hours washing uniforms and driving carpool (thanks, Mom!) or cheerleaders on the sidelines. But it’s a whole new ball game (pun intended, of course) today. Women have become an integral part of football, from the front office to the back field. Pioneers include:
- Amy Trask who, in 1997, became the first female chief executive officer of an NFL team, the Oakland Raiders;
- Kathryn Smith, the first woman named to a full-time coaching position in the NFL in 2016;
- Sara Thomas, the first female referee to officiate an NFL game (2012), bowl game and in a Big Ten stadium; and
- Beth Mowins, the first woman to call a nationally televised NFL game
Like these groundbreaking women, PSMailers is a bit of a pioneer, as well. Revolutionizing the time-consuming, labor-intensive task of preparing and processing mailings, PSMailers pressure seal folding equipment and self-mailer documents have made a name for themselves in offices across the country.
- From small offices to high-volume organizations, there’s a PSMailers model that scores a touchdown in office productivity with every mailing job.
- PSMailers pressure seal systems can handle any application in the playbook, from checks and invoices to report cards and direct mail.
- PSMailers documents take the envelope out of the game because they’re designed to be printed, folded, sealed, and mailed in less time than conventional printing and mailing processes that use envelopes. Lots of fold styles to choose from score extra points, too!
With football season upon us, we tip our helmets to women leading the charge in football—and to PSMailers for being a game changer in the world of document processing!
*The term “pigskin” comes from the early days of the sport (actually, English rugby) in which the ball allegedly was made from an inflated pig’s bladder encased in pig hide.This has since been long abandoned and footballs used in the NFL and NCAA today are made of cowhide, much to the relief of pigs in pens around the world.
