Charlene Sims established The Master’s Press in 1976 when she was a young, single woman of 25. Initially mentored by her former employer, Don Brewer, she learned the value of genuine customer care. Working in every aspect of the business with “ink (and now toner) running through her veins,” she loves the industry and always enjoys enabling customers to market their product in an effective manner.
Charlene has spent much of her life actively in the industry, serving on the boards of NAQP, NAPL, and NPOA - all printing associations - enabling printers to keep up with the latest in employee relationships, technology, and customer care.
After 50 years plus of continuous service, she has turned over the reins to Kenneth Fulton, long time printing friend and owner of Einstein Printing as we merged our staff and facilities. The combined staff of both companies will continue the legacy of serving customers with excellence and personal attention, combining the experience of two 5-star companies into one 10-star total package for all your needs.
11/24/2023 - It is with heavy, yet hopeful hearts that we announce the passing of our friend, mentor, and the founder of The Master’s Press, Charlene Sims.
One could not meet Charlene without knowing that she had a heart and fervent passion for the Lord. Even from an early age, that passion was a driving force in all that she did. From the founding of The Master’s Press in her 20s, to her post-retirement involvement with Regenerating Life Ministries through the Forgiving Forward program, Charlene approached everything she did as an opportunity to serve the Lord. Even during the tribulations of her battle with a rare and aggressive cancer diagnosis, she always made a point to encourage all those around her, and to tell them about her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Even when it became apparent that she would not be delivered from her illness and that her time with us here was nearing an end, her faith never waivered. Both she and her husband, Steve, enjoyed a sense of peace that defies human understanding as a result of that shared faith.
Charlene's legacy in the printing industry will be long lasting. From her role on several national industry boards, to mentoring Kenneth as he took the reigns at The Master's Press, her fingerprints are all over many of us. She may be gone, but will not be forgotten.
