MyPrint Corp. — Keeps on Growing

The executive team of MyPrint Corp. includes (from the left) Kent Barkouras, president; Jim Trombley, CFO; and Craig Hath, executive vice president of sales.

In conjunction with its online offerings, MyPrint offers commercial offset and specialty printing, direct mail services, on-demand digital capabilities, distribution, inventory management, and kitting and fulfillment. The company serves a national customer base in several vertical markets, including restaurants, healthcare, distribution, travel, fitness, pharmaceutical, entertainment and hospitality, financial services, educational, retail goods and services, manufacturing and technology.

It now produces at least 90 percent of its clients’ printed materials in-house, including restaurant menus, marketing collateral, posters, flyers, directories and enrollment kits.

Founded in 1982, MyPrint—then known as Phoenix Press—was a small commercial printer that specialized in small- to mid-sized sheetfed requirements. In 2002, the company began the transition from a job shop to an account-based, program management firm seeking to offer a greater range of services to key markets. MyPrint’s sales doubled over a six-year period.

The 125-employee operation has also invested heavily in new equipment. Last year, it installed a two-color Heidelberg Printmaster QM 46 press and a Stahlfolder B30 folder to help meet the demand for online orders.

“We made those investments because we saw a dramatic increase in smaller orders coming from five new national customers that utilize our customization capabilities through etools,” Hath notes. “Those job requirements included take-out menus, flyers and small-run brochures that often required folding.”

The addition of the Printmaster has also played a significant role in the company’s short-run production of business cards and station- ery. The Stahlfolder B30 folder was also critical to the company’s ability to be competitive both from a cost and turnaround standpoint with items like sales collateral and brochures.

Last year, MyPrint also installed a six-color, 22? Didde web press to produce economical, consumable-type items for its customers such as comic/coloring books, newsletters and placemats/tray liners. The company also doubled its stationery production capability to meet the needs of several high-volume requirements.
