Joe has high energy motivation

I have been extremely pleased with Josten’s service for the past 13 years, and could not imagine anything that could
improve our experience, until we met Joe Elmore. His expertise in marketing has increased our sales dramatically.

He has innovative ideas for advertising our book that we would have never thought of.

As a result of his high energy motivation, my staff is excited about sells both with yearbooks and business ads.

Joe helps my vision!

Joe is more accessible to me than the teachers down the hall. When I text or email, he’s helping me almost immediately.

Also my favorite feedback from Joe is, ‘Whatever works for you.’ He recognizes that I know my school and community better than he does, and he’s willing to help my vision of what we need.

It’s a pleasure to work with Joe

It has been a distinct pleasure to work with Joe Elmore. He has been instrumental in providing our program with a manageable budget that allows us to have funds available for equipment up-grades. He has also been an essential instructor for my staff on ways to sell ads and promote book sales. Joe has gone above and beyond the requirements of his professional contract to make our yearbook, and our yearbook creation experience, enjoyable and exciting!
