Who would have thought that what began as a way for Bill Alguire to make an additional car payment in 1981 would evolve into one of the premier graphics facilities in the Southwest? PrintArt began as Accurate Die Cutting in 1981 with a 400 square foot mini warehouse in McKinney, Texas and three employees. In less than three years we found it necessary to move into a 10,000 square foot building. By 1989, we experienced additional growing pains in the graphic arts industry, and a 20,000 square foot facility was purchased. During our first 10 years, we were always adding new equipment and more staff. Three moves in 10 years told us that “we must be doing something right”.
In 1993 we added a second facility located in Dallas, Texas. This allowed us to make our first really bold move. One of our key clients indicated a need for a supplier that could do their printing as well as their finishing. Since all of our other moves were client driven, we responded by purchasing our first 6 color Komori press. This step evolved into our current philosophy and expertise of providing our clients with “Total Turn-Key Merchandising Solutions”.
In 1999 we moved into our new state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in McKinney, Texas, and simultaneously upgraded our in-house printing capability by adding a Mitsubishi 6-color press. Our new plant gave us a total of 85,000 square feet of manufacturing capacity. In 2009 we opened a new 65,000 square foot manufacturing plant in Greenville, TN, and in 2010 opened our moulding, millwork and wood frame manufacturing plant in Upstate New York. These manufacturing plants are geographically located to be able to service any customer from coast to coast. We launched our successful Extranet Ordering and Inventory Management System in 2005. This was in response to a request from a customer that needed a supplier to manufacture, as well as inventory and drop ship their products. We opened the frame plant to manufacture brick frames directly for our brick customers.
We most have most recently added a Fuji Film Acuity High Speed X-2, 5’ x 10’ flatbed digital printing press, and a Xerox J-75 digital imaging press to better service our customers growing variety of printing needs.
We have always been a “client driven” company and will continue to let you, our clients, help us determine how we can best serve your merchandising needs.
