Life as an Intern

Isabel's Adventures

Hello! My name is Isabel Stanley, and I am a Graphic Communications major at Clemson University! I am so fortunate to have met Lithographics at our internship fair this spring semester, and then later being able to fly in to interview with the company. 

As a Graphic Comm major at Clemson, we are required to accomplish two internships (one summer, one during the school year) in order to graduate. We learn about all the different processes used for graphic, printing, and visual communication, and we even get the chance to take on more specialized areas of study. I’m excited to get this hands-on experience with Lithographics and learn more about what might be next in my career.

I’m feeling so blessed that Lithographics is giving me the ability to lead, learn and create my own mark. This summer I will be the Operations Intern focusing on development, 6s and quality. I am excited to share my progress with y’all!
