THINK PINK

Last year around this time, Bob Ally, our President and CEO, bravely spoke about his personal bout with cancer. Since it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we thought this would be a good time to remind everyone of his thoughts and that the struggle to eradicate cancer continues to this day. Above is a shortened version of the previous video we posted on this blog, where Bob tells his story.

Cancer is such a devastating disease. It affects not only the individual but those around them. Sadly, most of us know someone close to us who has been impacted by cancer; I know I have. My grandma had breast cancer, as did my Auntie – both made it through, I’m happy to say. A good friend survived Hodgkin lymphoma. I had another Auntie pass away from melanoma several years ago, which was tragic for all of us, including her son, who was barely entering adulthood at the time. And, in the past year, my dad dealt with a form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. He is currently in remission but will be closely monitored for the foreseeable future.

This is the unforgiving nature of cancer. We’re thrilled to report, however, that Bob remains cancer-free after eight years. We have posted the following link to the American Cancer Society. Please join us in donating to cancer research so that we can help out others, like Bob.

Our Latest COVID-19 Efforts

During the coronavirus pandemic, we at Shachihata / Xstamper wanted to find a way to contribute to society’s needs. We examined our facilities and determined that our ink manufacturing process could be re-purposed to produce hand sanitizer. We are excited about being able offer you a hospital-strength hand sanitizer, in a WHO-recommended formula that works on surfaces, as well as hands.

We have also introduced some brand new COVID-19 related stamps and signage. These products are designed to aid the healthcare industry, offices, restaurants, and those of us who have been staying indoors and maintaining social distancing. We are also listening to the needs of our customers and will consider adding products that the market demands.

We are always in search of finding new ways to help meet the needs of our customers and community, whether it is staying safe with hand sanitizer, celebrating a social distancing graduation or birthday with a sign for all to see, or stamps and informational signs for use in the health care field. We anticipate that these products will assist you during this unprecedented time and we hope that everyone remains safe and well.
