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. 

 

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

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 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 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!

 

We also offer other services on property, like van rentals and storage units!

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.

 

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

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.

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.

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!
