We were so happy to be recognized by the Texas Diversity Council at the Diversity FIRST Awards Luncheon.  As a small business, it’s super important to us to make a positive impact on our community, and being recognized for our diversity as a business really means a lot.  Our  print family is happy to accept anyone who works hard and is just a little bit weird.  Pictured below are our owner Gilbert, his wife Lucia, and our Large Format Specialist Ben at the ceremony.  Thanks Texas Diversity!

We recently printed these custom t-shirts for Debra Ellsworth Photography and they turned out beautifully!  Debra saved money by supplying a variety of blank shirts in different sizes, styles, and colors, and printing the logo in the same size and teal ink on all of them, so she only had to pay one screen burning charge.  This is an excellent option if you want to do a lot of different styles in small quantities with the same artwork.  Her team is going to be looking fabulous at all their upcoming shoots!  Contact us for an estimate on your custom apparel project today!

We live in a digital age, so most print shops you visit will have- you guessed it!  Digital printers.  We have 7 digital printers in our shop, and when it comes to hi speed, low quantity jobs with a million different colors and  variable data- those machines are our workhorses.  What sets us apart from many other print shops is that we also have an old school offset printing press.  With offset printing, each color used in a design must have its own special plate, containing tiny holes that allow the ink to reach the paper only on the intended areas.  The paper is run through one time for each color used in the design, a process very similar to screen printing.  The advantage of offset is it makes orders with very large quantities more affordable, a wide variety of specialty papers can be used, and exact color matching is possible.  We often use our press for stationery, because with digitally printed letterhead and envelopes, the ink can sometimes crack if run through an industrial printer a second time.  With papers printed on the press with ink, the design is unaffected by later being run through a hot digital machine.  Below is a photo of a letterhead plate for our friends at Tableaux.  We keep the plates on file, and when they need more letterhead, we load up the press with their signature 60% Grey Ink and go!  Denny runs our press, and despite the many fast moving parts, he still has most of his fingers.  If you’re in need of a great deal on stationery or other large quantity printed items, drop us a line and we’ll get you a quote!

We were printing some custom velvet invitations for a super secret wedding (sorry we can’t show you the final product!), and look how pretty these test prints came out!  They are almost worth framing as they are, but imagine how cool it would be to print images or quotes on!  Thanks to our flatbed printer, we’re able to print on any surface up to 4′ x 8′, so bring us more fun materials to experiment with!
