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.

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.

 

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

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!

 

We also offer other services on property, like the Dilly Van Rentals and Dillingham Self Storage.

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.

Print Shop for Local Business

Herman, a local artist, has been visiting our print shop for a while now. He typically comes in to print his artwork out in high quality with our machines. We love seeing his new work and are always excited for him to come in. Recently, he has been transitioning to produce more online art and digital work that can be sold online. Herman still stops in to print artwork to showcase his portfolio. Every time he comes in we get to see his new project and we love seeing how he is handling this transition to digital prints. Herman is one of the many local entrepreneurs that stop by our Dilly Print Shop for services. 

Local Business

Maybe one day he’ll have the next big art piece that people are looking for! We love seeing entrepreneurs and other local businesses stop by. During hard times like these, it’s uplifting to see people making the most out of it, and that is what Herman is doing. We love supporting him and cannot wait to see his next big art piece. We love you Herman!

Holiday Printing Services

The holidays bring in a high demand for printing cards, letters and invitations. Because of the rush of it all, it seems like most of the printing is done at the last minute or right before the event! The end of the year can be busy for many, and the weekends fill up fast with family events, shopping agendas and Santa events for the keiki.

Print Shop Open Saturdays

Geraldine called us on a Saturday needing to print cards. She needed them that day for her flight to LA the following day. So we asked her to come in with the necessary pictures and things to go inside the card. When she arrived, she realized she had forgotten to bring the picture and also left her phone at home! But we still took care of her! We have guest computers available in the lobby for our customers to use. She used our computers to pull up her email and got the photos to us. While we were working on the layout for the card, she mentioned that she typically goes to another print shop on Saturdays. However, that location recently closed their services on Saturdays. Geraldine found us on Yelp and saw that we are open on the weekends and even closer to home for her.

Holiday Cards

She was really happy with the final product and we’re glad we were able to help her out! She was very happy that she found us and loved the layout of her cards!

Regular Dilly Print Shop Customers

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!
