Meet The Team

Joshua Parison

Owner and General Manager

Joshua first joined the Southport Printing Team in 1998, when the company was still operating under it's former name, where he served as the Manager and Art Director for over 11 years. In 2009, he took a hiatus to serve in pastoral ministry at a large church in Maine, but always maintained ties both to the company and to the industry. In 2014 he returned to purchase the company, now an independent print shop sporting the name Southport Printing Company. As an actively involved owner, Joshua works hard to keep Southport on the cutting edge of printing, design and marketing services while providing the same consistent and personable service they’ve become so well known for.

Joshua and his wife Reneé live in Sanford, Maine with their three lovely children Alaina, Mariah and Zachary, who are involved in a myriad of sports throughout the year. Outside of growing his business, Joshua satisfies his competitive spirit playing basketball during the winter and golf during the summer.

Terry Dionne and Don Belanger

Our Production Staff

Terry and Don are our highly experienced production specialists who handle all aspects of our offset printing as well as bindery and shipping activities. The first to arrive each morning, they organize the daily workload to ensure that all commitments to our customers are kept on track.

When not on the job, Terry can often be found riding on the back of her husband’s Harley as they head off to Vermont for a weekend of camping. Don is often occupied splitting wood for his wood stove, or cheering for his granddaughter at a youth league basketball game.

Shane Buzzell

Graphic Designer and Large Format Specialist

We are delighted to have Shane join our team as a graphic designer and large format specialist. He comes to us well prepared, having graduated from Plymouth State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design in 2012. Since graduating, Shane gained experience by working at Portsmouth’s Key Auto Group as their in-house Graphic Designer and doing layout and graphic design for newspapers at Salmon Press in Meredith, NH.

He is friendly and fun loving and is especially enthusiastic about the customer service aspect of his job. He likes nothing better than making folks happy.

Shane spends his most of his free time trying to keep up with his Siberian husky, Fudge. His favorite summer days are spent fishing on the lake. To the best of our knowledge, he has never fallen out of the boat.

Jenna Welty

Graphic Designer

Jenna’s intensive creative fire is fuelled with coffee, hot in the winter, iced in the summer, with a dash of cream and a sprinkle of sugar. A former freelance designer, she comes to us from Keene State College, where she earned her dual BFA in Fine Art and Graphic Design while completing a fellowship with the Keene State Art Department. Fluent in InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop, she is always coming up with innovative solutions to design challenges.

An avid animal lover, Jenna would someday love to own a small herd of cats. For now though, she is content nurturing her fur child, an adorable tuxedo kitten named Zooey. Her favorite activity may just be sharing endless cell phone pictures of the fluffy kitty with anyone who happens to be in close proximity to her workspace, but other than that she enjoys being with friends, exploring the outdoors and trying new restaurants. It’s a winning trifecta when you get all three at once.
Her absolute favorite Pantone color is 877C (#shiny) which matches her sparkling personality.

Chris Hatch

Print Production Associate

Chris was born and raised in the wilds of Laconia, New Hampshire. The youngest of five children, he graduated from Plymouth State University in 2011 with a BA: Graphic Design. He came to Southport Printing Company to gain experience in the commercial printing industry, and has found great satisfaction creating quality products and helping local business owners with their marketing efforts.
When not applying colorful ink to paper, Chris enjoys spending time with his amazing, talented girlfriend Kayleigh. Together they enjoy traversing New England, visiting family and friends. In the winters you can find him curled up on the couch watching action/adventure blockbusters. In the summers you are more likely to find him BBQing pool-side, and of course in the fall he is cheering on the New England Patriots. His favorite year round activity is home brewing beer with the guys and of course snacking. He’ll eat almost anything, but don’t even try to get him to eat cauliflower, olives or pickles.
