About Me

Hi, my name is Don Oswalt; King of Sales at Proforma in Charleston South Carolina. I have been in the printing industry for more than 28 years, learning the trade from my step grandfather in a small Northeastern Oregon town called La Grande. Working in his shop created a passion for excellence and quality when it came to printing. Running presses and the production process was such a valuable experience that I will always cherish. That knowledge and experience has helped set me apart from others in my industry when it comes to paper, ink and special options.

You will find me to be kind, patient and easy to work with. I believe my greatest skill is listening to my client’s needs and helping them reach their goals with each project.

 

Core values:

1. Provide value – connect people with the right services, even if they don’t use me.
2. Helping People – Help others achieve their goals and objectives.
3. Continue to learn – as long as I live I will be a student. Strive to be the best at what I do, I am always trying to be better, learn more and share that knowledge.
4. Long term relationships – establish long term relationships with everyone. I think long term when I work with clients and provide great customer service.
