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!

Dilly Print Shop Does Lamination

The Dilly Print Shop offers several printing services, including laminations. We can laminate small and large documents. If you bring your items in, we can give you a lamination estimate. 

 

Lamination is the process of manufacturing materials in multiple layers so that the outer layer has improved strength and durability. The outer layer is typically made of plastic and offers secure insulation and a nice appearance. It can be great to extend the life of a document. 

Lamination to Preserve Documents

Lamination can be especially helpful to preserve important documents. Amy called and asked if we could laminate three COVID vaccination cards for her. Given all of the restrictions in place and the requirement to show proof of vaccination, she had a great idea to laminate her cards. This would help preserve them for future use. It’s also a safeguard against water spillages, etc. The vaccination cards made of paper are vulnerable and could be easily damaged. We thought this was a great idea and the Dilly Print Shop was happy to do this for her. Many places are requiring proof of vaccination upon entry so we know Amy will use her cards in the near future! 

 

We also offer other services on property. We have storage units and van rentals available!

Dilly Print Shop and Hawaii Junk Removal

The Dilly Print Shop had many old printing press machines in storage from some of our long time customers. We were holding onto them for a very long time until recently we decided to clean up the storage unit that was holding them. We wanted to make room for more print shop supplies. 

Dilly Print Shop Cleanup

Hawaii Junk Removal has been wonderful in helping us empty this unit. They have been the best junk removal company on the island that we’ve worked with. They are efficient, reasonably priced and offer great customer service. Carlos and his crew have been dedicated to cleaning up this unit for us. We are so happy with the final result. Now we have more room for new printing supplies! Some of us here at the print shop are now hiring Carlos for our personal home clean ups! Hawaii Junk Removal has great reviews. We would recommend Hawaii Junk Removal to anyone looking to clean up their home and personal belongings. It’s  a great time of the year to do some cleaning!

 

The Dilly Print Shop also offers other products and services on site. We have storage units and van rentals all available at Dillingham Self Storage!

Dilly Print Shop Long Time Customers

The Dilly Print Shop has some long-time customers. Some of our clients have been utilizing our services ever since we opened. As a result, we have seen our clients grow over the years. 

Kaulana with Dilly Print Shop

Kaulana has been with us since 2016. We are her designated print shop for all her teaching lessons in both school and church studies. She’s been with us for a very long time. We love it when clients stay for a long time, we get to see them grow and expand over the years. We have seen Kaulana expand her curriculum over the years and it’s wonderful to watch. It’s also been uplifting to see businesses, sporting events and public gatherings come back to life as we recover from the pandemic. Printing for wedding invitations, graduations and swap meets were on hold up until recently!

 

Recently, Kaulana let us know that she is moving to Kapolei. This means she won’t be printing with us anymore. Although we are sad to see her leave, we are excited for her new move out to Kapolei. She was joking around with us that she would have to make the drive into town now just to get her printing done! 

 

We also offer other services on property, like moving van rentals and storage facilities.

Dilly Print Shop Office Hours Update

The Dilly Print Shop has updated hours. Office hours will now be Monday-Friday 10am-4pm and we’ll be closed on Saturdays and Sundays. These are extended hours compared to our previous schedule during COVID restrictions. We are more comfortable with longer hours and more food traffic in the front office given the lower infection rates. We are excited to welcome customers back. We are now all waiting for the day when masks are not required indoors, and we can’t wait for that day to arrive! For now, we are just happy to be able to extend our office hours. With these new hours, we’ll be able to accomodate more customers. 

Dilly Print Shop in July

For the month of July, we will only be able to fulfill orders that are immediately ready for print. Our graphic designer is out of office for the entire month of July. As a consequence, we are only able to accommodate orders that are ready to print now. This means that any designing or formatting services will need to wait until August. This also includes designed layouts. We are sorry for the inconvenience!

Print Shop for Graduation Season

The print shop loves supporting the graduation season. Pandemic restrictions are still in place and so many graduation ceremonies are virtual. However, “graduation drive-by” celebrations are common. We have seen many creative celebrations for graduates that still include all of the leis and big signs. The Dilly Print Shop does not print banners but we have been printing big signs and posters for vehicles to display while driving by and honoring their graduates! The Hawai’i graduation season is unlike any other and we love to see the aloha still in place, even during the pandemic.

Print Shop for Drive-By Graduations

Print shop customers have designed creative posters for their graduates. We have seen all kinds of designs and drawings. Some people put posters all over their vehicle while others decorate the dashboard and some even hang out of the vehicle while holding signs! We are impressed by some of our outgoing customers who put so much effort into decorating their car for these drive-by graduations. It’s amazing to see an entire family working together to decorate a small vehicle for one graduate, and we love it! We have even seen some families do drive-by birthday parties.

Dilly Print Shop Business Customers Return

Dilly Print Shop is looking forward to the return of business print customers. We have not seen some of our business clients in over a year due to the pandemic. Slowly but surely we have seen them open up. 

Paradise Rent a Car Returns

Paradise Rent a Car has been a print shop customer for years. They rent vehicles and mopeds. Prior to the pandemic, we saw them frequently. We printed invoice documents for them periodically. Once the shutdown started and tourism in the islands came to a halt, business for them stopped as well. We have not seen them in over a year. We just delivered a print job for them for the first time since the shutdown! The rental car industry has been expanding rapidly because tourism is picking up now that the summer months are here. We are looking forward to doing business with them in the future. 

Dilly Print Shop Business Clients

Dilly Print Shop is excited to see some of our long time clients come back into business now that pandemic restrictions are slowly being lifted. We are also seeing a return of public sporting events, weddings and social gatherings. The print shop offers printing services for these types of events.

Dilly Print Shop Tier 3 Ready

The Dilly Print Shop is looking forward to the Tier 3 opening. Many of our clients here at the print shop rely on public events and gatherings for business. We are looking forward to printing for these special events once again. As part of the Tier 3 opening, outdoor sports are allowed to be back on the fields playing. We could not be more excited! Frank, one of our long time clients, coaches high school baseball. We have not seen him in almost a year. He uses our print shop services regularly during baseball season. He recently contacted us, needing line up sheets printed. Although the kids are playing a much shorter season, Frank is happy that the kids get back to playing at all, and he gets back to coaching!

We are looking forward to hearing more of these returning and reopening stories for our customers. We can’t wait for businesses and life to get back to normal, we miss talking stories with our customers about all of their upcoming fun events.

Printing Services with Short Turnaround

 

We love giving our customers a quick turnaround time for printing services. For simple print jobs, we can do as fast as 24 hour turnaround time. For complex jobs that require a layout service, this takes at least 2 business days. Prepared customers with documents ready to print speed up the print process. We encourage emailing all documents to us before you stop by, it helps us get your documents back to you faster! 

 

Clary needed to print some wedding invitations along with RSVP cards. We love seeing wedding invitations, and can’t wait to print more when big events come back to normal! Clary already invested in her own template and had the invitations ready to go. She needed them printed on cardstock and cut to template size. We printed a few samples for her to see which cardstock material she preferred, and she loved the options. She knew what she wanted after seeing the samples and we were able to get her invitations printed and ready for pickup within two days! Clary was so happy with the quick turnaround time. She was able to get her invitations out on time, and we were able to make another customer happy with our printing services!

Dilly Print Shop Customer Service

The Dilly Print Shop serves the best customer service in town. We love hearing the sigh of relief from customers when they learn that we can get their print job done quickly and efficiently at an affordable price. During these weird times, we prioritize customer service even more because we know people could use some aloha, even over the phone. We handle many of our print jobs over the phone and email before the customer even walks through the doors.  

 

Janine had a few things that needed to print on card stock. She had her layouts, templates and print documents ready to go. We were the third print shop she had called that day and was heading over to us before she hung up the phone. She reported that the other two print shops were rude over the phone and could not give her a straightforward answer for a simple print job. Janine was relieved when she talked to us and we could give her a price over the phone. She stopped by with her thumb drive in hand, ready to print. We were so happy to have Janine stop by the Dilly Print Shop!
