In addition to Founding Idyll Time Wines, Joan Escover is the President of JP Graphics, a certified, woman-owned, and certified green printing company with over 40 employees.
In the begining of her career, Ms. Escover worked for an accountant who had a printer as a client. “I hated accounting, and the printer would ask me to work for him every time I returned his balance sheets,” said Ms. Escover. “I took a leap and accepted the job, and also enrolled at Santa Clara University to pursue a law degree.”
While working for this printer, Joan soon understood the value of print and began selling print products while attending law school, amazing herself at how quickly she excelled. By the time she graduated—amidst the first big downturn in the economy in 1989—she was earning more than the top-earning law students she graduated with. Ten years later, she became the President and key salesperson of her very own printing company, JP Graphics.
“We do about $7 million in sales. It’s a unique shop as we cover the whole realm of printing—digital, offset, large format, mailings…all under one roof,” she said.
Using her innate ability to maximize a press sheet with little waste, Ms. Escover ensures each product she puts forth meets the highest standards of quality required, while reducing their carbon footprint, with a shop that's pwoered by solar.
Joan's love of print technology has enabled her to fully utilize the company’s capabilities for her Idyll Time Wines. Offering everything from specialty craftsman-type materials to unique rush digital jobs of die-cut lables and print-on-demand cardboard gift boxes.
