Neil Stein-Owner of Print Smith printing has a history of ripping off employees--and bouncing checks --Beware of this company--I CAN ASSURE YOU HEADACHES, DRAMA, AND CHAOS -ALONG WITH LOTS OF LEGAL AND MONEY ISSUES---NEIL AND DALE HIRE SALES REPS--GRAPHIC DESIGNERS--PRESSMAN--AND PROMISE THEM ALL KINDS OF GREAT THINGS--Only to use them and not pay --in return causing poor quality and very bad customer service, because all their time and energy are used to swindle employees out of their hard earned money. I pray and hope the many other past employees speak out and post a complaint against Neil Stein and HELP KEEP PRINTING PROFESSIONAL IN THE CLEARWATER AREA.

The guy belongs in jail. He is the living definition of EXCRIMENT.

I feel sorry for him, his family, friends (who do not think very highly of him; at least the ones he still has) and his employees.

Yes, I agree. It has just happened to me. Not only did he not pay, but also told a state agency that I never worked for him at all so that unemployment would be denied. He needs to be stopped and put out of business.

He's still doing business under the name COUNTRYSIDE PRESS and still pulling the same crap.

Yes indeed this guy is a pro at scamming folks. He ordered a part for his printing press and said he would pay cash on delivery but paid with a worthless check that bounced at Wachovia Bank. We had called the bank to verify funds prior to deposit but was no money when check got there. Neil tells us sorry no money and will not return the part. This is a clever theft and nothing else!

This is just another post from a disgruntled ex-employee able to spread falsehoods without verification of any kind. Our history speaks for itself-in business for over 14 years, with many loyal customers and employees. It is too bad that a forum like this is available to anyone with a grudge to stain a company's reputation. We would not be in business for long if these allegations were true.

Well he now has an employee named John Taylor, they just stole a job from me when John was to do the artwork only, John has ripped every employer off he has worked for , maybe they will make a good match, John was in Indiana jail for a year because he molested a little girl, I guess they couldnt prove it enuf, so they let the prick out, now he is BACK in Florida ripping people off and I have know John Taylor for over 10 years, so I know what I am talking about, after all this he then befriended me on Facebook, Look Out all There is a criminal marriage here

The employees are telling the truth! This guy was just arrested in Oct for passing a bad check! He continues to not pay his employees and has had several in the past 6 months that he has stiffed! I'm not a former employee but an outside observer that knows people that have worked for these immoral people. Neil Stein and his wife Michelle have no integrity and just continue to take from others. They make deals or arrangements with employees, vendors, and business associates but the Steins never make good on their commitments. STAY AWAY FORM THEM OR YOU WILL GET RIPPED OFF TOO!!!!!

Funny not a single customer has posted on here with a complaint and they have been in business since 1996..... just ex employees or "outside observers" who obviously have plenty of time on their hands since they are no longer employees and are most likely milking their unemployment/welfare checks while wasting time looking up arrest records and making ridiculous and false accusations. John Taylor is no longer an employee. Neil was arrested for not having a tag on his dog. Go waste more time blaming others because you aren't capable of holding a job. These posts are INVALID on every point. Nobody is an actual customer. Period.

I think if he were ripping off the customers they would post,but he is ripping of his EMPLOYEES duh! Neil was arrested in Jan of 2011 for not having any tags on his mutt,but he was also arrested in Oct of 2012 for issuing a worthless check and again in Dec of 2012 for obtaining property in return for a worthless check.Why didn't you post that? this guy is a lying crook and deserves to be in jail.PERIOD!

I did some checking. 6/12/12 arrested for writing bad chack to Publix for $40.38, plead "not guilty" ... was given a Public Defender because of "Insolvency" (thought his business was doing so great he could afford a lawyer Michelle!)

10/5/2012 warrant issued for worthless check to Dimmitt Chevrolet for $2625. Made "payment of $36.00 on 2/4/2013. (again Public Defender) 12/21/2012 warrant for his arrest for writing another bad check, also needed public defendant for insolvency. Pled not guilty on 1/14/2013, changed his mind and pled guilty on 2/4/2013 and 3/5/2013. WOW! And Michelle/Neil you posted on 1/21/2013 that people have "plenty of time on their hands since they are no longer employees and are most likely milking their unemployment / welfare checks while wasting time looking up arrest records" What "unemployment" checks, You guys pay under the table for that very reason ... so they can't get unemployment from you. Neil Stein is a CROOK ... PERIOD! And WE as a community will stop him eventually ... in the meantime ... Michelle, keep up with your stupid retaliation "comments" ... we actually love looking at them!

Funny, these complaints are from people who are ashamed to divulge their names. Nothing but a few complainers who are just pissed off because they were completely worthless as employees and were fired from every company they ever worked for. But keep the cards and letters coming, they give all of us a good laugh. Losers. Every one of them.
