Holidays for the Dilly Print Shop are around the corner. Our staff ‘ohana works very hard throughout the year and we all need a break. We would like to notify everyone that the print shop will be closed Nov 15 – Nov 23 and will reopen Nov 24. We ask for everyone to get their printing jobs and services done before then because we will not be available over email. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to give us a call. We have notified some of our regulars but would like everyone to know our holiday hours.
We love our Dilly Print Shop customers that come in on a regular basis. We develop customer service relations with them and can process their print jobs much faster because it’s usually the same request periodic request.
Tenants That Do it All
We do weekly printing for Grace Bible Church. They are one of our few storage tenants that use all three of our services. They come into the print shop on a weekly basis and we do all of their bulletins and things for their church service. They also use our storage vans!
Dilly Print Shop Value
Heather, a representative for the Church, stopped by for us to print some new cards. She brought in her order and template and requested to print enough so that the total would come out to $60. When she came in to pick up the finished print job, she was so happy with how it turned out! She admitted that for the same price, she got double the number of print copies compared to some of our competitors. And, the quality of the printing was more impressive! Now, Heather always emails us for these print jobs. See you soon, Heather!
Pua was looking for a print shop that was open on a Saturday. She needed to print and laminate some documents for her son’s football game that Saturday afternoon. She was in a rush to get it done as the game was that day. The usual print shop she goes to is closed on Saturdays and so that’s how she found us on Google.
Printing for Football Season
Pua stopped by the dilly print shop that day and we were able to get her things printed and laminated in a short time. She was so happy with the final product and relieved that she had found us.
Football season is in full swing now and so Pua plans to stop by once a week for each game until the season is done. She even stopped by for us to do her business cards one week! Pua is a sweetheart and always stops to talk story with us every week. We’re happy she found us, see you next week, Pua!
Saturday Printing Hours
Saturday printing hours can be helpful for those who have weekend events and need some last minute printing services done. We’re open from 9 AM to 5 PM on Saturdays.
The print shop prides itself in handling sensitive or fragile documents with care. If customers wish to make photo copies of aging documents, we can help you out.
Preserving for Future Generations
Russell called us earlier in the month asking for us to make copies of some of his genealogy binders. The binders were full with about 200 pages in each binder. They were very old documents and the pages in each folder were sticking together because of it. Old documents tend to do this, especially if exposed to heat, humidity or severe temperatures. Russell wanted us to make three copies of each binder so to preserve them before they disintegrated over time. He didn’t want to reach the point in time were the documents were ineligible because the material had fallen apart.
We gave him price quotes over the phone and and estimated completion date. He was happy with the projections and so he stopped in that same day to drop off the binders. He left no time to waste!
Thanks for Stopping By!
After we completed his requests, Russell came in to pick up the finished copies with his wife. She was very excited to have new copies of the binders before all the wording and text had faded to nothing! It can be so devastating when this happens, so we’re glad they came in before the binders reached that point!
The dilly print shop has several mutual friends through our customers. It might just be the island lifestyle in action, but we learn of mutual friends when talking story with our customers! It’s a pleasant surprise when we learn of having mutual friends with the same customer.
Aunty Lani called the dilly print shop inquiring about printing programs for a close relative’s funeral. She had a few special requirements such as including the entire rosary prayer for her nieces and nephews. We communicated with Aunty Lani over the phone on most of her specifications and what she’s looking for. She called in several times to help assemble the layout over the phone.
When she finally visited us, we immediately took to calling her Aunty Lani! It was casual! Aunty Lani doesn’t have an email address, so she had to visit several times before we had the final layout ready to print. On her last visit, Aunty Lani brought in pastries for us as a thank you gift for helping her print the programs!
After talking story with her for a little while, we found out that she knew Father Victor – a loyal print client of ours! Aunty Lani loves Father Victor and she was pleasantly surprised to know that we print for him as well.
Our print shop customers love to stay in touch with us. We like it, too! We love when we can help them out, even if it’s been a while since we’ve seen them.
Doug with Hawaiian Island Shine
Doug with Hawaiian Island Shine had a storage unit with us for over a year. He recently moved out because he moved his business into a store front location. He was previously operating out of his storage unit with us but has moved on from us now! His business – Hawaiian Island Shine – offers auto detailing products – and it’s doing great so far! We’re so happy for him and his business. It’s really great to see our business customers succeed and grow. It makes us happy.
Printing for Doug
Since he’s moved out from our storage facility, he’s kept in touch with our print shop to do some printing for his business. He’s asked us to do some brochures and flyers for Hawaiian Island Shine and we are happy to do so! We usually communicate with him remotely and then have his print jobs ready for pickup. It’s faster for him.
Saving you Time
We know it can get busy when you’re running a business, so we try to make things as convenient for you as possible. For example, we’ll communicate with you over email and keep your card on file to help save you time. When you’re a business owner, time is important!
The print shop is pretty fast at turnaround time for our print jobs. We’ve had customers email things the day of and we can get it out to them by the evening. We’ve even had partial orders placed and then the customer will add on more to the order the next day and we’re still able to organize it all into one print job.
Print Shop Work Samples
Jordanna called the print shop on Thursday afternoon inquiring about some funeral programs she needed. She wasn’t sure of what she wanted, or any specific layout. So, we invited her to stop by and check out some of our past print jobs to see if we could do anything similar for her. We hold onto past print jobs sometimes to show work samples to future customers.
After she got an idea of what she wanted, she planned to send us pictures, names and details by Friday so we could have the programs ready for pickup for the funeral on Saturday afternoon.
The Final Product
Once she sent everything to us we were able to compile it all into the layout she wanted. It was a simple program and a simple layout, so we were happy! We got all the documents from her Friday afternoon and had the programs ready for pickup by Saturday morning. Jordanna was really happy with the final product and happy that they were ready in time. We love making our print shop customers happy!
The dilly print shop ohana can help you with formatting for your print jobs. For example, some of our print shop customers need help with formatting online documents that are limited with editing. We can help you with that.
Paul Visits the Dilly Print Shop
Paul visited us one day because he wanted to print some invitations. He only had evite invitations but he wanted to print a few and deliver them in person. We had to do a new layout with him other than the original evite PDF because of the special formatting. We were limited with copying and pasting because of the evite format, so we had to get creative.
He was understanding of the necessary layout and didn’t have a problem with waiting while we were drafting a sample. While he was hanging out in the lobby, he used the available computers to find some images to add to the invitations!
The Final Product
He loved the sample we brought out to him and was happy with the result. He even wanted us to add our dilly print shop logo to the back so that everyone who received an invitation would know of us! Thanks Paul for stopping by, it was nice to meet you!
We’ve taken care of the printing services for Ian with Pest Tech since 2016. He’s been a loyal client and has been returning to us for all his business printing needs. We’ll do invoices, announcements, and other documents.
Ian would always send us emails of feels that he needed to be printed. We’d have all the files in our email, and would prepare them for him for pick up. So, we’d only see him when he’d come in to pick up documents. It was an efficient process for him.
See you soon, Guy!
Since last year, Ian has had a representative come in, Guy, to let us know about their printing services needs. Instead of emailing us documents, Guy will physically drop by to put requests in. He’ll come in to drop off a copy of the original document and tells us the specifications, quantity, etc. We’ve seen him a lot recently, especially on Saturdays. We reminded him that he can email us instead of physically stopping by, to help save him time! We’ve saved their past forms on file if they need to make future copies of the same document. Guy said he prefers to hand them to us though, it lets him get out of the office for a little bit!
Moto has been printing with us for quite some time now. We’ve been printing his business cards for several years. Earlier this month he visited the shop to adjust his layout and get more cards printing. We’ll also print other things for him and his business. Like we’ve said before, we love working for small business owners.
Printing for Moto’s Scuba Shop
Moto owns a scuba shop, Sunshine Scuba. However, he’s also a magician on the side! He does private shows for parties and small groups. Our recent print job for him were business cards to publicize his magician business!
Catching up with Moto
He usually doesn’t stop by the shop until it’s time to pick up his completed print jobs. He’s a busy person. He’ll typically just call or email us when he needs something to be done. But when he does come in, we love catching up and chatting with him! His English isn’t superb but he’s very sweet and is patient with understanding us. The last time he visited the Dilly Print Shop, we all talked about how much we love country music!
