An Epic Business Plan
A local company has re-emerged in Visalia and is planning on making 2013 an epic year, for your community, your business and for them.
Epic Print & Promo/ Printing 4 Charities has settled into their new location in Visalia after relocating from Exeter. The new name, Epic, describes the big plans co-founders Gene Lytle and Rachael Smith have already set in motion. Epic also describes the company’s new scope, online presence and diverse products which have transformed the company beyond past capabilities and into a business with infinite options for customers and limitless potential for them.
Lytle said Epic offers customers a price match guarantee, meaning they will match any price quote in writing from any other company within 30 days. But Epic hasn’t forgotten about non-profits and has come up with an Epic discount. Lytle said the company is now offering a non-profit rate if they are a charity.
“The whole point of Printing 4 Charities was to help non-profits help others,” Lytle said. “This is just another way we can support them.”
Epic Print & Promo’s new in-house digital production machine allows them to print almost any size on any material in about half the time. They can produce printed materials for your non-profit, business or home project such as booklets, posters as large as 13-by-19 inches, tri-fold brochures, etc.
By registering for a free account on their website, www.epicprintandpromo.com, Epic customers are entitled to a 10% discount coupon on their first order and are eligible for additional discounts. The website also offers customers with all the information of the store with the convenience of placing orders from home. The website offers a customer dashboard so you can view pending and completed orders with real-time job tracking, your own invoice printing, on-line proofing and a pricing calculator to get instant quotes.
When it comes to promoting your organization or business, Epic has got you covered, literally, by putting your logo or information on a building, car or yourself. They can produce street banners and building banners up to 16-feet wide and as tall as you want. They also do vehicle wraps and any kind of signage, including wooden or metal signs. An expanding part of their business is custom, promotional embroidery. Epic has already provided embroidered shirts, hats, jackets and aprons for three Exeter service clubs including the Exeter Lions, Exeter Kiwanis and Exeter Optimist Club.
“We feel like we never really left Exeter, our building is just located in a new place,” Lytle said. “We are looking to secure another location in Exeter. We will continue to be involved in the community and provide all of your printing needs.”
Gene and Rachael opened Printing 4 Charities in November 2008 and relocated to Exeter in May 2009. Printing 4 Charities and Epic continue to provide their traditional promotional printing services, such as business cards, flyers, envelopes, labels, letterhead, NCR forms, notepads, etc. Through Printing 4 Charities, 15% of purchase profit is donated between The Lytle Foundation for victims of abuse and two charities of your choice. The Partners In Caring program donates 25% of profit on qualifying orders to a charity registered with Printing 4 Charities.
“We are looking for charities to partner with us,” Lytle said. “This is a great way for businesses to donate without paying more and a great source of funding for local non-profits.”
