40 folks were let go at Valpak - things are getting much worse
St. Petersburg-based Valpak, one of the nation's largest direct mail companies, is laying off 40 graphic artists involved in ad production, the company confirmed on Tuesday.
The jobs, mostly involving artists work from home, will be laid off in stages beginning in July and continuing into August, said Valpak president Michael Vivio. Employees were notified in individual meetings last week.
