Sheryl Jones

Studio Manager

Started in 1991

While waiting for confirmation of a desktop publisher job offer from one of the red tops in Fleet Street, I applied for a job in late 1990 with a little print firm on Fitzwilliam Road, called Hine Labels. The job was on the shop floor as a printer and, although it was felt at that time it wasn’t a job for a woman, something must have struck a chord as early in the following year, I had a call out of the blue from my former Design Lecturer asking me to contact that little firm again. Meeting Peter & Zena Hine for a second time, I was asked to join the small team, sharing my time between office work and part-time with tasks in the studio.

Doing more than just office work and artwork, I would help Beatie in dispatch, with cleaning, filing, and I became chief tea masher!

Within a year of starting at Hine it became apparent there was a greater need for in-house support with the artwork. Things were getting busier. Hine relocated to their current factory on Hope Street.

I have been at Hine coming up to 30 years, and have been a part of its growth and development. It’s hard to believe we have gone from posting and faxing proofs – to sending files worldwide in seconds.

Whatever the next 30 years will bring, and while I continue my role as Studio Manager at Hine, I aim to meet the high level of loyalty, trust, and professionalism our fantastic customers and suppliers expect.

One thing you can be certain of is the guaranteed warm welcome and maybe even a cup of tea, even though I’m no longer the chief tea masher.
