Their growth strategy required equipment that was more sophisticated, along with technology-driven workflows and training their staff to execute a sales and marketing upmarket growth strategy into a national client base.

According to Stelter, “This new partnership has allowed for better project scoping, multi-tiered product solutions, and new, innovative ways to produce materials. Additionally, we are able to offer greater flexibility in color, paper, envelopes and finishes on a wider range of papers sizes for both offset and digital.”
