Print Shop Demand Returns to Normal

As public events return to normal on a larger scale, we are seeing more independent vendors coming in for print shop orders. We love meeting and talking to crafters and bakers in need of printing labels, menus and price sheets for their booths at craft fair events. The Dilly Print Shop offers these unique printing needs. We love working with entrepreneurs and local small businesses. It is very exciting to see public events kicking into high gear this summer season. We are expecting higher demands this summer compared to last so we encourage all print shop customers to place their orders sooner rather than later! We are happy to accept documents that need to be printed over email. This is convenient for both the customer and our office. Our turnaround time is shorter for smaller print projects compared to larger ones. However, we are quick to reply over email for all projects and get your project moving underway! 

Layout Services for Print Shop Orders

We also offer layout services for a fee if you’re looking for help with designing a unique layout for your print service. This may be of interest to vendors looking to print for very specific product sizes.

 

We also offer other services on property, such as storage units and truck rentals.

Computers at the Dilly Print Shop

We are excited to announce that the computers in our lobby are now open for use for all Dilly Print Shop customers! During the pandemic, we have restricted the use of these public computers due to the potential spread of bacteria and concerns for virus transmission. However, now that they are back open for customer use, customers can use the computers to send us documents to print. 

Dilly Print Shop Customer Information

There are numerous customers from the DMV down the street that stop by to print documents. We typically give them the option of using the computers in the lobby to pull up their documents and print themselves. Another option is to send documents to our print shop email address and we can print it directly from our computers. This method is typically much faster. If customers choose to login to their personal email account on our computers, we delete their login information before they even leave our office. We want all print shop customers to know that we immediately delete any sensitive email login information. We want our customers to feel comfortable using our computers.

Dilly Print Shop Prints for HCC Students

The Dilly Print Shop loves meeting students from Hawaii Community College (HCC) across the street. We welcome all students to come print at Dilly. We can print basic documents for you, or offer specialized paper for custom print jobs. If you’re looking to present a gloss poster, we can do that for you. 

Dilly Print Shop’s Students

One student needed a few copies of a document for a presentation. He soon found out that the library does not allow students to make copies anymore. Given that his presentation was that day, he was in need of a print shop close by that could get his documents done quickly. Luckily, he found us on Yelp! While waiting in the library, he learned that we are conveniently right across the street. We were able to get his printing done in time. Now, he knows he can come in and get all kinds of printing done right here at Dilly. We’re looking forward to welcoming more HCC students. We know that being a student can be stressful, and having access to a printer is crucial! We can provide that for you here at the Dilly Print Shop.

The Print Shop and Young Artists

The print shop loves to see the work of young artists. We offer several options for artists who are looking to print their work. Depending on what the customer is interested in, we can offer glossy cardstock for special prints. 

Lawrence, the Artist at the Print Shop

Lawrence is a young artist. He loves to draw anime characters. He came in to the print shop with his mom to print his drawings on glossy cardstock. Lawrence is very talented. He emailed his work to us and we were able to get it printed the same day for him. This was his very first drawing printed on thick glossy cardstock. His mom was also excited to see his hard work on display. We hope to see Lawrence again in the future so he can print all of his drawings. We love to see our customers light up when their work comes to life. Lawrence, especially, as a young artist, was so very excited to see his hard work printed on cardstock. It made us happy to see him so happy! We encourage all artists to publish their work and put it on display for all to see.

Tess and the Dilly Print Shop

The Dilly Print Shop works hard to offer quality customer service and fast service. We work quickly over the phone and over email. Our team aims for a short turnaround time in getting print jobs out to customers. It’s our priority. We can offer this because we accept print files over email. This expedites the printing process.

Dilly Print Shop Fast Service

Tess came to visit us recently to get her printing done. She was previously a loyal FedEx print customer, but wanted to try a new print shop that could offer faster service and shorter turnaround times. She called us and within 20 minutes of talking to her on the phone, she arrived at her doorstep. Tess emailed us her files, and we were able to print and get her out the door in less than 15 minutes! She was very happy with the results and fast service. Tess noted that she called about 20 printing places before she found us. She lives far away from us but had no problem driving to meet us because she was so pleased with our service! We are so happy that Tess found us!

Dilly Print Shop and Vision Boards

The Dilly Print Shop has been busy this month with orders. We have seen an influx of requests for Christmas cards, Holiday newsletters and New Year family announcements. It’s so encouraging to see holiday newsletters going out this year compared to 2020. In 2020, no one had anything happy to announce. This year, that’s changed. People have announcements, invitations for family gatherings and new family members to introduce! With the upcoming graduation season in May 2022, kids are going to college on the mainland to attend in-person classes. It’s exciting to see things up and moving again. 

Dilly Print Shop and Creative Requests

We have also had some creative requests for printing. One customer is printing images for a vision board for 2022. Vision boards are very similar to “inspiration boards” that are collages of goals, aspirations and resolutions. It presents these goals in a creative and visual manner, and we love it. We like seeing creative requests like these. It’s nice to see people setting goals for the new year. Now that most of us are vaccinated, travel goals are more realistic. It’s fun to see international destinations on people’s vision boards for the new year.

Print Shop for Pageant Printing

The print shop does printing for special events that require booklets, laminated items and unique projects. We offer layout services for a fee and are happy to work with project coordinators to get your vision on paper. We have done printing for several large scale events, like music concerts and even search parties for missing persons.

Print Shop for Pageants

The print shop was prepared to print booklets for the 2020 Ms. Asia Hawaii pageant. Unfortunately, that event was cancelled due to the pandemic. It was rescheduled for 2021 and we were so happy to print the fliers and booklets for it! There are also pageant events scheduled for December this year that we are planned to print for. We are looking forward to working with these events who have been waiting for so long! This year was the first year for the pageant since lockdown. We worked with executive director and producer, Ricky and Vilma, to do all of the printing for the event. It is exciting to see events come back to life after being on hold for so long, we look forward to the pageant events!

Dilly Print Shop Design Layout Services

The Dilly Print Shop offers layout services for a fee. Our fees are listed on our website and we can also provide them upon request. 

Design Layout Fees

These fees are based on time spent on design layouts. These fees can increase if changes are requested. If there needs to be a change to the design, this increases the time we spend on design. If there are many customer requests to change things, this can increase the layout fee significantly. We work with a graphic designer in layout design at the Dilly Print Shop. To help customers minimize costs and to help our graphic designer, we recommend knowing exactly what should be done for the layout. This helps to minimize the back-and-forth requests, which speeds up turnaround time and reduces frustration and costs for everyone. It is best to come prepared with the idea you have in mind for a layout design. Our graphic designer only takes direction from the customer, so if the customer requests more changes than we make more changes! 

 

We also offer other services on property, like storage and van rentals. These services are all offered at the Dillingham Self Storage property and can be a great compliment to each other!

Dilly Print Shop Helps in the Search for Ariel

The Dilly Print Shop is happy and proud to be printing fliers for public search efforts for missing individuals. We can print fliers, posters and large banners. Spreading awareness can be the best way to bring someone home. 

The Search for Ariel

On September 13, 2021, six-year-old Isabella “Ariel” Kalua went missing from her home. Members of the community garnered efforts to support the Honolulu Police Department (HPD) in their search for Ariel. A week later, for reasons unknown, the search was suspended by HPD. The community still pushed for her search by protesting the suspension and rallying outside of Child Protective Services headquarters. A group of volunteers were coordinating fliers. One volunteer stopped by to print fliers here at the Dilly Print Shop. She mentioned that the case did not have any leads, but they were hopeful in getting the word out. Spreading awareness with photographs of Ariel would help remind the community that she’s still missing. We were so happy to help and we donated all of the fliers that they needed. We’re hopeful that Ariel will come home. These acts of kindness in the community to lead efforts in the search for Ariel are a warm reminder that humanity is still good!
