Our Short Story
How did our co-owners get started in their career and find their entrepreneurialism? For some, our career started in a small family owned and operated sign shop while others of us watched as Mom built a comic business out of a single box of collectibles. Really, our story started with family and now has found it’s way back again. The dynamics have changed as have the goals. We’ve had great successes and sad losses. We’ve developed and sharpened our skills and our values. Now, we are here and we are moving forward with great aspirations.
Colorful as our products are, the PrintingApes family knows that while our business may be centered around inspiring prints, it is really about people. Formed by printing industry veterans, PrintingApes set out to develop a new, caring company that balanced people with profit and fun with forward movement. Our mission is to model an ethical approach to business while creating meaningful work. It is through this passion, PrintingApes hopes to set themselves apart.
Our leadership team wants to create opportunities for everyone employed by or corroborating with PrintingApes to have fun, learn more, and achieve their goals both personally and professionally. Largely, we want PrintingApes to be a creative and productive business. To do this, it’s important to conduct ourselves with respect towards others and strive towards mutual solutions, not differences.
