Our business philosophy is based on core principles of integrity, quality and good judgment; when those are applied in relationships with our staff, our customers, our vendors and our community the result is over 90 years of fun and success.
OUR GUIDING TENETS
Our tenets are not just words, they are a promise
We deliver on this promise each day through the following:
SCREEN PRINTING IS A CRAFT AND EXPERIENCE IS KING
Graphic Screen Printing is one of the most technically difficult forms of printing, it requires management of hundreds of variables throughout the process. The ink technician, the press operator, and the finishing techs must understand all of the variables that they face and must manage them constantly to ensure a high-quality product. Does it make a difference that our production personnel has an average tenure of 12 years and that four of our press operators have been with us over 20 years? You bet it does! And their knowledge is always expanding with ongoing training and exposure to new technologies.
Building a strong partnership with a vendor requires trust. Trust is built over time and with repetitive positive experiences. So how do you select a new vendor or place trust on your initial orders? Our most common recommendations come from word-of-mouth and we couldn’t be more proud of that! We have 30-year relationships with some firms and we value their trust and their partnership. But we’re also all about allowing others in to evaluate us and help us improve. Here are just a few of the ways Cole Graphic Solutions measures up!
ADDING VALUE SINCE 1930
We were started 90 years ago by folks who recognized a need and met it, and that’s been working for us ever since! Cole Graphic Solutions is a women-owned, financially stable, privately held company with the same owners for the last 30 years. This consistency over decades provides us with unparalleled knowledge in the industry, a reliable supply chain, and some of the smartest and best-skilled team members in the industry which equips us to respond to client needs quickly, creatively and consistently. We aren’t the best because we’ve been around the longest; We’ve been around the longest because we’re the best.
WITH SUCCESS, COMES GREAT RESPONSIBILITY
We believe that it is the duty of any successful business to give back to the communities they call home. Which is why we have remained committed to connecting with and supporting, both financially and through volunteering, some of the Puget Sound area’s most amazing non-profit organizations. As a team, it’s good for us to remember how fortunate we are at work and at home. So we give of our time and talents together by helping build homes for Habitat for Humanity, packing food for food banks, finding creative ways to help our local United Way.
