Small Business Big Results

Posted on March 27, 2014

Being a small business can be tough in today’s economy especially if you are in the Printing Industry. Grafix Shoppe has been around for 25 years and has seen the highs and lows of the market. One thing has always remained the same for Grafix Shoppe, and that is our philosophy is to aggressively compete for business while delivering a quality product no matter how quick we need to turn a job around. To be able to deliver on this philosophy you need a phenomenal team backing it up.

In the world of event marketing there are plenty of times when you need printed promotional materials at the drop of the dime. It is hard enough doing the creative groundwork in a tight window, but often times the most stressful part of the process is finding a print vendor that you can trust to get the job done, on time, the correct way. Grafix Shoppe may be the vendor that you are looking for.

Here is an example.

STX, a global sports equipment manufacturer based out of Baltimore, MD approached Grafix Shoppe in an immediate need of a graphic removal and new graphics for their RV for the “Let’s Play Hockey Expo” in Saint Paul the weekend of March 7 and 8. Here is the timeline:

  • The design files were sent to Grafix Shoppe Friday evening the week before the event.
  • Our designer came in on that Sunday afternoon to set up the print files.
  • The graphics where printed Monday.
  • The RV arrived Monday night.
  • Our installers arrived at the Shoppe at 4 a.m. Tuesday, working around the clock removing the old graphics and applying the new graphics in a 48 hour window. Every nook and cranny on the RV was completely wrapped the right way, and the RV looked amazing check out the photos below.

March Design of the Month

Posted on March 4, 2014

Design of the Month March

Marshall County Sheriff, (OK)

Grafix Shoppe has been working with Marshall County Sheriff in Oklahoma since the early 90's. Over the years they have had several different designs but none that looks as good as their current fleet.

In 2013, working with Undersheriff Cryer, the department started using stock design ULT-2005. It fits all of their vehicles very well and incorporates their custom badge. We have helped Marshall County Sheriff make a great looking fleet!

"I am very satisfied with and excited about the new look. Thanks again for all of your help with this project and I look forward to working with you again in the near future."
