Meet Our Team - Chris Coerper {Cherish Paperie Production Manager/Co-Owner}

If you had told Chris 14 years ago when he married Adrienne he would be making wedding programs and tying ribbons, he would have scoffed. Trained as a police officer, he was forced to switch careers after injuring his back during a training exercise. He was hired by Willamette Ind. as an ink technician, and worked on color matching and mixing and weighing industrial flexo inks for corrugated boxes.

He continued on with the company even as it under went changes and was eventually purchased by Weyerhauser. By then he had worked his way up to be superintendent of the ink plant, but was coming home every night to help Adrienne in the studio, where they would sometimes work until 2am to fill the orders that were coming in.

By 2005, they realized they couldn’t keep up this pace and took the plunge to make Custom Programs a full time business for them both. He brings vital knowledge and muscle to the production line, as well as a wonderful eye for detail to all our assembly work.
