Founder congratulates award-winning printers in Comox Valley

Dear editor,

Congratulations to ABC Printing & Signs on receiving the 2012 Business of the Year Award.

Dear editor,

Congratulations to ABC Printing & Signs on receiving the 2012 Business of the Year Award.

It is with great delight to see that the business that my husband and I started and established in early 1989 has continued to grow over the years and the name we gave it is still being used with pride.

ABC Printing & Copy Shop had a humble beginning with myself operating it along with a staff of three people at 450 Ryan Rd. in Courtenay.

Our business was started without a customer but through the personal approach of introducing ourself to the local businesses in our area and branching out with services that were needed besides printing, which included colored photocopying, fax service, laminating plus foil imprinting.

The business continued to grow also having contributed to charitable organizations and having the privilege of printing the events brochures for the Comox Valley Exhibition Association and Comox Nautical Days for a number of years as well as printing for many local businesses in the Comox Valley.

ABC Printing was a growing company that needed more than one owner to operate it and to also increase its productivity for the area it was servicing, as the need was evident.

I had the opportunity to have come to know both Brian Wiley and Steven Hansen through the printing industry they were involved with prior to purchasing my business in 1993. They definitely make a great team along with their spouses to continue in growth and modernization in the printing field plus incorporating the sign division to the business.

Congratulations again on your accomplishment.

Donna L. Lewis,

Comox Valley
