JohnHenry Ruggieri, President, Reveals The Benefits of a “Yes” Mindset in LeadingPRINT Magazine. While there are lots of factors that have contributed to SunDance’s impressive steady growth over the years - like investments in equipment, technology, marketing efforts, and efficiency - it all boils down to this simple but powerful mantra: “Find a way to say ‘yes’.” In the Summer 2019 issue of LeadingPRINT magazine, President JohnHenry Ruggieri explains our company’s ethos and how it has driven our growth and customer satisfaction. It’s not enough to say “yes” though, you have to get creative, take risks, and get the job done to make customers happy.
You may call us sentimental, but sometimes we get so passionate about our work we want to shout it from the rooftops. We also want to spotlight our dedicated team who make the impossible happen day in and day out—from sales associates and customer service reps to press managers and delivery drivers.
Anytime you can get a reader to take the time to interact with your marketing piece, it’s a big win. Everyone enjoys feeling engaged and entertained—and printed materials can elicit emotions that are hard to convey in digital formats. A smart, well-thought-out print ad can add value and credibility to your brand in ways that are nearly impossible through other mediums.
Everyone loves to be recognized for their hard work. At SunDance, we are no different! That’s why we are so proud of the 3 Gold Leaf Awards we received this year at the Foil & Specialty Effects Association (FSEA) Awards Ceremony.

As Florida’s first Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP) certified printer, Earth Day holds special meaning for SunDance. In addition to our extensive recycling efforts, which resulted in recycling 7,140 trees’ worth of paper and over 2.9 million gallons of water annually, SunDance continuously implements conservation practices to reduce resource consumption before it reaches the recycling stage. These efficiencies result in not only decreased materials consumption, but also in the time it takes to complete an order. Some of our more recent conservation efforts include the implementation of press automation processes, improved proofing and prepress software, and mailing automation processes. In addition to our recycling and conservation efforts, SunDance reuses and repurposes boxes and packing materials to prevent them from ending up in a landfill. Reduce Reuse Recycle… how SunDance shows its dedication to being responsible stewards of the planet.
