As he wraps up his career at the University of North Texas this month, retiring Director Jimmy Friend has made one last addition to his in-plant’s impressive arsenal of equipment: a new Pitney Bowes Mailstream Engage envelope converter.

This unique device combines digital print and variable data software to create personalized mail pieces. It folds letter-size sheets into envelopes (called micro billboards) with the personalized message printed on them. It also inserts letter-size sheets inside. The device will enable UNT’s award-winning in-plant to produce targeted direct mailings, initially for the Athletics and Advancement departments.

Friend’s 23-year career at UNT will come to a close on December 21. The new director will be Richard Griffin, director of Central Piedmont Community College Campus Printing & Signs.
