We have some very exciting news to share with you! After thirty years of serving our clients’ promotional and apparel needs, we are ready to relax a bit and move into the retirement phase! It has been our distinct pleasure and honor to serve you all of these years and it will certainly not mean goodbye, but rather appreciation for a relationship of friendship and gratitude for trusting us these many years.
One of the great things that has happened during this season is we have formed a strategic partnership and will be transitioning ownership of our business to a wonderful family business you may already know! Tom and Lisa Slade, son Hunter Slade and daughter Emily Manzo, owners of Slade Print have been leaders in the print, sign and promotional business for nearly 30 years. In 2018 they acquired ProMark, a business heavily engaged in promotional products, screen print and embroidery, and flexographic printing in the label industry. They perform all of these operations in-house and are a widely respected business covering a large region of clients. The opportunity for us to transition our business to the Slades gave us great confidence you would be well taken care of for many years to come!
We have worked diligently to make sure the transition will be as seamless as possible and we certainly look forward to continuing to do whatever it takes to work through this process together. Rest assured, all of your previous orders, logos, artwork, etc., will be transferred to them so that reorders, new orders, and creative new ideas will be handled with ease.
The actual date of ownership change is May 1, 2021. Between now and then we would love you to discuss any questions you may have. With 2020 being a unique year for in person visits, we are happy to do whatever it takes to say hello.
Again, you have made our work a pleasure and we look forward to continuing to stay connected and especially look forward to connecting you with the Slade family and their great team as we move into this next phase of life!
Warmest good wishes,
Brad and Mary-Beth Owen
