(long story, short...)
This is one of those quaint tales that began somewhere back in the 70s! Dating, marriage, life, kids, work.... to an in-home graphic design business equipped with a light table and a Compugraphic Typesetter.
Word of mouth had me very busy with design and soon Rob joined with his business skills, print production, and equipment procurement. We purchased Deep Creek Printing which consumed the entire lower level of our home and started to take over our living room and dining room! We decided it was time to move the business out!
Rob and I had made the decision to work together in our home so we could have the opportunity to be there for all of the joys in raising our two children. We worked hard, but took time to enjoy after school chats, T-Ball games, and those spontaneous moments that arise from day to day living.
As our children grew, we spent more time growing Express Press. The name was born out of the "quick-print" era of the 80's, but we have always been much more than that. With my degree in Communication Graphics and Rob's business degree, and the help of some very talented staff, over the years, we have continued grow and roll with the many changes as the printing and graphic arts industries evolved.
When you like what you do, and get to serve great clients, it is easy be motivated to succeed. Our success means our clients are successful, in part, because of what we do.
Through the years we have made it our goal to stay technologically advanced with equipment and training. Software changes, upgrades, and strong affiliations with the major developers in our industry have enabled us to keep abreast of the most advanced procedures and trends in our industry.
Our goal is to help make your business better, more profitable and successful by providing "Ideas for Results." Please think of us as your own, personal, in-house print and web design company!
