Hey, What’s Up with the Name Change?


20 years ago, an industrious man named Paul Lucy bought a Portsmouth printing franchise and we began making things, focusing on customer service and quality to make sure that we were providing the very best. Our connections and relationships within the local community grew and grew throughout the years, and, when our long-term contract with the franchise was up, it felt like the right move to go independent, becoming a truly local business firmly centered in the Seacoast area. So to answer your questions…..

Was the business sold?
Nope, Paul is still our owner, just like he has been for the past 20 years. You can see him zooming around town in our bright red Delivery Jeep.

Have you moved?
Nope, we are still located in Plaza 800 on Islington Street in Portsmouth. We have updated our mailing address to 738 Islington Street, Plaza 800, Portsmouth NH 03801, but when you come into visit us, you can park in the same convenient lot and walk through the same door.
Are the same people still working there?
Yep, we’re all still here, ready to help you with your project.

Do you still have my files?
Yep, we still have the same records and files as we did before, so if you need a reprint, we can handle it.

Have your prices gone up?
Nope, we still offer the same competitive pricing. Ask us for a quote on your next project.
So, that’s the whole story. You can give us a call, shoot us an email, or drop in if you think of anything else you’d like to know.
The Portsmouth Herald did a nice story on us that has some more details on our transition. Check it out here.
