Chief Operating Officer and Captain Cool
Alvin provides sound business sense, technical expertise, and the cool, decisive voice of reason in our highly-charged, creative environment. An avid traveler, sports fanatic and gadget geek, his fascination for tinkering with toys extends to discovering computer innovations, digital equipment and techniques to improve print processes. But above all, Alvin loves the romance of traditional mechanical letterpress machines, and has been enamored of the printing process since his dad introduced him to silkscreen printing at the age of 10. He’s Printsonalities’ go-to guy when production challenges arise, and steers the production team in achieving the desired designs and maintaining consistently high quality. His motto? “In Printsonalities, we say, ‘no design is impossible to do.”

THE PRINTSONALITIES TEAM ANSWERS…
Favorite celebrity projects
Both the Judy Ann–Ryan celebrity wedding and the Presidential Inauguration were very memorable, since they presented very unique challenges to our young and dynamic team. Aside from being very highly confidential in nature, the concept for the Judy Ann–Ryan wedding was really original, and we got a chance to be involved in the concept and presentation of their invite, down to the delivery logistics! To ensure the details of the wedding wouldn’t leak out to the public and the press, the invites were distributed a mere four days before the actual wedding date, and our company was entrusted the task of delivering these invites to each guest. We can say with pride that we handled this top secret project superbly.
The Presidential Inauguration for President Noynoy Aquino was another major challenge. It’s not everyday you are given an opportunity to make invitations of international significance that will be received by foreign dignitaries and heads of state all over the world. It was extra memorable and rewarding for the team, as the invitations were made for a president we believed in.
Dream wedding client?
The wedding of President Noynoy Aquino! We can assume that his wedding, should it happen within his term, will be one for the books and will be talked about not just locally but internationally as well. How often do you find a bachelor president who gets married during his term of office? Can you just imagine our invite being featured in Time Magazine and other international publications?
