Custom Printing, Ojai Printing Join Forces

OXNARD, CA—Custom Printing and Ojai Printing have agreed to merge operations, the companies announced. The alliance gives Custom Printing added purchasing power and the ability to pass those savings on to its clients. All operations will be conducted from Custom Printing’s 30,000-square-foot facility.

“This is a win-win for everyone,” said Custom Printing President Charles Utts. “We are looking forward to working with Ojai Printing’s clients, and seeing how our printing and mailing facilities can benefit their businesses. Both companies have serviced the same geographical area, but we are very surprised how few of our customers were competing against each other. That’s probably why this deal went so smoothly.

“We are determined to place as many former Ojai Printing employees as possible in positions at Custom Printing,” he added.

Al Milner, owner of Ojai Printing, is retiring and wanted to find a solution that would enable his employees to maintain their jobs. Milner serviced the Ojai Valley for 40 years.
