Kari Pollock, the owner of Printigree, wants you to know that her business is housed in Klugo Parkside Place. But she doesn’t expect you to remember it right away.
“Everyone still calls it the Bresee’s building,” noted Pollock.
Pollock’s graphic design and printing business had a soft opening when the ribbon was cut on the renovated former department store Oct. 15. The business offers “all your basic consumer printing,” Pollock said, including business cards, newsletters, brochures and any other small business printing needs, as well as graphic design services.
“The graphic design aspect can be as small as image correcting, to as large as logo branding,” said Pollock.
While two-dimensional designs are Printigree’s specialty now, Pollock said she hopes to add another dimension — literally — to her business soon.
“3D printing is step two,” Pollock said. “A lot of architects and designers like to print out prototypes and artists print 3D moulders.”
Pollock’s business, in a nut-shell, “does high-quality printing and graphic design,” said Pollock. “We do all your basic consumer printing,” she stated. “We specialize in local business.”
When asked why she chose to start a printing and graphic art business, she quickly responded that digital art is her passion.
“Every graphic artist knows you need to know a lot about printing,” she said. “That’s how you make your art real.”
Pollock spoke fondly of the reception her business has received thus far from the community.
“We have about four to five people a day come in,” said Pollack. “It is very encouraging.”
Printigree is open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays. A grand opening celebration is scheduled for Nov. 15.
