Here’s a scary thought: Try and picture a world without email.
Indeed, it’s hard to fathom our world functioning as we know it without the wonder that is email. It’s cheap, it’s fast, it’s convenient, it’s just… easy. Few words can be as harrowing and bone-chilling for a business as “email is down”.
But for all its immeasurable benefits, there is a dark side to email. One that can eat away at the very core of any business – even the most successful.
Here’s why you should be coming to visit the Ptex office.
It’s not just because of the award winning office environment (Great Places to Work 2016), the limited addition Brooklyn Bridge letterpress print hanging in the foyer (which took Cameron Moll over 300 hours to create), the open interiors designed by RMWong, Yossi’s fish tank with exotic species such as the clownfish and angelfish, or the occasional Cholent Fest on a nondescript Thursday.
While those are all solid reasons to stop by, it’s what’s going on right outside the touch-free, hand-censored glass doors that makes it worth the trip: the lunch options.
So many choices. Can we talk about that?
And all within just 350 feet south of the office (and we’re not even talking about what’s going on in the other directions :0).
“A blank page gives us the right to dream.”

“Yeah, but a nightmare is also a dream.”
– Shlomo Grossman
Some people enjoy the freedom of a blank page. There’s a clean slate. The delightful opportunity to go in any which way you so desire.
That feeling usually lasts for a few minutes, until it gradually morphs into genuine horror. And if you’re on deadline? Well, emotions reported have ranged from “strongly reconsidering life decisions” to “ life flashing before my eyes”. And panic. Lots and lots of panic.
