WHAT WE DO
In 1997, Quantum Ink was founded by Dan Bland. After working for a few different ink companies, he realized that working for the bigger guys didn’t align with his values learned from growing up on a small farm in rural Kentucky and serving in the army. Some of these values include hard work, dedication, and respect for all.
So why the name Quantum Ink? Energy. Anyone who knows Dan Bland, can say that he really is one big ball of energy. This energy has spread throughout all of Quantum.
Adam Bland and the entire team continue to bring the energy and service to all of Quantum’s customers today. Their values today are the same as they were when Dan started the company. Adam believes in customer obsession. Quantum promises to not only sell you a quality product but also to obsess over the small details to create a mutual partnership that lives on forever.
WHO WE ARE
Learn more about Adam
Passion and energy are two things that Adam Bland has endless amounts of. His employees can sometime notice goggle and swim cap marks on his face if he happens to schedule a meeting after he gets his laps in for the day. His leadership through experience is a big part of Quantum’s continuous growth. When he’s not busy running this company, he’s most likely spending time with his family outdoors somewhere.
Learn more about Rob
Unfortunately for Rob, his dream of becoming a starting short stop for the Chicago Cubs didn’t quite pan out. However, Quantum’s sales team is thankful for this because his cool and calm demeanor along with years of pressroom experience is what leads this team to success. On the weekends you can find Rob down on the mats coaching the Derby City Legends wrestling team to victory!
Learn more about Keith
Once this guy comes into your pressroom you can consider things smooth skating. Yes, skating. Not only does Keith know his way around a press, but he also knows his way around a pair of roller skates. After a long day of taking care of Quantum’s Northeast customers you can find Keith sitting down to play Mario Party with the family.

Look out for this bad ass beard growin’, color matchin’, beer brewin’ son of a gun. Whenever Bledsoe isn’t taking care of all of Quantum Ink’s environmental, health, and safety needs, you can find him enjoying some local live music or maybe he just took off to the west Texas desert.
Learn more about Miranda
It’s no coincidence that most Miranda’s customers are in the south. What’s that saying again? You can take the girl out of Florida, but you can’t take the Florida out of the girl? Anyways, determination and drive are what keeps Miranda on the road in the warmer weather. Oh, and you should steer clear of Miranda if she hasn’t had her coffee!

Learn more about Tim
Quantum’s resident Eagles fan is outgoing and dedicated. Tim’s past life as a handyman comes in handy when providing technical service to Quantum’s Northeast customers. His gamertag is not listed on here because you would get “absolutely destroyed” if you were to play him in Call of Duty.

Our resident cardinals’ fan is always down to travel anywhere to provide technical service so long as it’s not in Lexington, Kentucky… Lil’ William spends his time shootin’ pool while sippin’ on that sweet tea while not on press somewhere fixing problems!
Learn more about Meredith
Ms. Meredith King may to some seem to be Quantum’s resident Loose Cannon, however what you’ll find if you get the chance to work with Meredith is that she’s busy every day Kicking butt and taking names in her own unique and genuine fashion… As a child Meredith aspired of becoming a rockstar, but unfortunately, she sings only in the “key of Meredith” which so far to this point hasn’t taken off in the mainstream music scenes. If all things work out, she’ll be well remembered as one hot grandma some day!
