Printing for Local Vendors

We love printing for local businesses. Our business clients are some of the most interesting clients we have met! We recently delivered some print services for Free Parking Studio, a vintage clothing store located in Salt at Kaka’ako. Salt is Honolulu’s epicenter for food, culture, entertainment and events. They host regular flea markets. The next flea market will be on October 14. You can find Free Parking Studio located in front of The Barn in Salt at Kaka’ako. The flea market will have over 20 vendors, including artisan food and sustainable vintage clothing stores. We love supporting local vendors and businesses. Flea markets are an easy way to see numerous vendors at once.  

Printing for Retailers

Our services for Free Parking Studio included a couple hundred fliers and posters to advertise the flea market event in October. We can also offer merchandise catalogues and printing for other business needs. We like working with businesses because we watch them grow from a perspective that most do not get to see. We know when businesses are expanding or launching new products or menus because we get to see the prints before others see them. We know when they are raising prices or running sales because we see the fliers before others see them. We also know when they are hosting more events because we see all the planning that goes into it! This is why we love working with business customers.

Print Shop Layout Services

Our print shop offers a variety of services, from general printing to layouts and design work. We are quick to reply via email and can offer clients a short turnaround time. Although we offer competitive pricing, we are unable to offer the same price breaks that other print shops could provide for very large orders. We recommend that customers check with other businesses that primarily operate as print shops. Our primary business is storage unit services, and because of that, we are not able to offer the same price break levels and discounts for very large print orders. The print shop is a secondary service to our storage unit services. However, we can still offer high quality print services to all customers. We just are not able to provide significant price breaks for those in demand of high volume print orders. The high volume print orders we have done for previous clients included printing for concerts, restaurant menus,  

Print Shop Recommendations

However, we refer clients to other businesses for these cases. Here are some other print shops that we recommend:

Aiea Copy Center

Office Depot Dillingham

We prioritize our clients and we are confident in referring customers to other print shops if we are unable to offer them their desired product or service. We are also transparent with our pricing structure and want our clients to have the best experience. Therefore, if we are unable to stay in your budget, we still want to fill your printing needs and can recommend you to another business.

Dilly Print Shop Welcomes Jasmine

The Dilly Print Shop has recently brought on new members to its team. We love welcoming new employees to our ohana. They help us to service more customers and operate more efficiently overall! We love our team. They help to take care of our Dilly Print Shop customers and keep things running smoothly. Without them, we would be nothing. It would be impossible to provide the kind of print services that we do without all their hard work and attention. It requires an attention-oriented personality to produce high quality prints, layouts and design services. It takes us a while to find someone who is both reliable and talented. When we do find someone that checks all of the boxes for us, we keep them!

Jasmine for the Dilly Print Shop

Jasmine is our most recent new employee. She has become known as the Print Shop Master! We love working with Jasmine and are very excited to have her on the team. Jasmine is also a layout and graphic designer. We now have 2 designers that can help with the more complicated print jobs that require layout designs. These jobs are usually in high demand. Before Jasmine joined the team, we only had one graphic designer. It took us a while to get through the numerous customer requests for these layout services. Jasmine has been able to work through all of our graphic design jobs and help to service these customers.

Dilly Print Shop for Teachers

The Dilly Print Shop has been busy in preparing for the new school year. Printing services are a huge part of the education sector, as well as other industries. Teachers, administrators and school coordinators all heavily rely on printing for various educational tasks. With the new school year just around the corner, we have been working with teachers in preparing materials for their curriculum. We can handle a large capacity of specialized print jobs. Teachers are more than welcome to come print with us! We can offer fast turnaround times and itemized billing. We can also communicate over email or over the phone. Our email response times are fairly quick, ranging from 1 to 2 business days. 

Dilly Print Shop for Jane

Jane is a middle school teacher and we have been working with her in preparing for the new school year. As a middle school teacher, she has lots of items that need printing. This includes homeworks, tests, activities and other assignments. We are happy to be involved in her preparations. Educators are important members of our community. They are raising the new generation to be responsible, caring and educated adults!

Print Requests for RIMPAC 2022

The Dilly Print Shop has been busy servicing print requests from participants in the Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) 2022 gathering. RIMPAC is a 4-day exercise that brings together military officials from Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, Republic of Korea, Singapore and the United States to foster cooperative relationships to ensure the safety and security of the Indo-Pacific region. Given the high-profile and relatively large event, we have received numerous emails for print orders from out of town visitors. Visitors are looking to print last minute documents, business cards and other work-related items. We are used to printing for business-related events, so we were prepared!

Island Prints for Visitors

We love meeting new people and facilitating business in the islands. We have received remarks from several international visitors that prices are rising in their hometowns. Island pricing may be a shock to those who are not used to it. Although locals are accustomed to higher prices and heavier expenses, those who are from out of town are surprised when they see our “high” prices. It is funny hearing about our high prices from international visitors. Although we have raised our prices recently, we are still cheaper than most print shops here on the island.

Heather and Brianna for the Dilly Print Shop

Heather and Brianna found the Dilly Print Shop and wanted us to be part of this event. We are so excited to do some of the printing services for the Taste of O’ahu!

Dilly Print Shop Customer Service Quality

The Dilly Print Shop recently raised its prices. We had to do this to stay in operation given the rising costs of inputs such as printer ink and paper. Given the strain of the pandemic on local businesses in the last two years, we had to make the decision to increase prices. Although our printing rates are still competitive, they are higher now than they were in previous years. We still offer good pricing compared to large corporate competitors. 

Dilly Print Shop Customer Feedback on Prices

We reached out to some of our long time returning customers and notified them of the price changes before actually introducing the price changes. We appreciate the feedback from them. They let us know that although we increased prices, the rates are still good and the excellent customer service that we provide makes up for it! We were happy to hear this. We strive to provide the best customer service and nothing less. Although prices have increased, the Dilly Print Shop will not reduce the quality of our services or the quality of our customer service. Our customers are our top priority. We aim to keep all of our print shop customers happy with our products!

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.
