This inaugural blog post was 30 years in the making. ;-)
30 years of excellence
Cho & Venus Tang opened Excel Graphics in 1987 & commenced serving businesses & organizations throughout the Bay Area. They believed that each project deserved individual attention; that clients deserved personal attention; & that quality in service & the quality of the end product were paramount. Over the years, our staff & equipment have gradually changed, but those core values have not. 30 years later, Excel Graphics is still here; still serving local businesses & organizations; still providing our signature one-on-one service for each project & each client.
commitment to quality
June marks my first anniversary with the company; but, our business relationship began almost 15 years ago. As a—then—partner in a small graphic design company, I requested bids from local printers to complete projects. More often than not, my projects ended up right here at Excel. I was routinely delighted with the service, results, & pricing. The team at Excel were always ready to help, make recommendations, offer knowledge, & never flinched at a difficult job. One business card project in particular that I recall involved two spot colors, two metallic inks, metallic foil stamping, & a rather complex logo (admittedly, it was a bit of a registration-nightmare!). A couple prospective printers seemed reluctant to take on the job & bid very high, but Excel came through with a reasonable quote, rolled up their sleeves & delivered exceptional quality. My client & I were beyond pleased with the results. Last year, when Cho invited me to join the Excel team as a Graphic Designer & Prepress Technician, I was only too happy to come aboard. I continue to be impressed with the knowledge & commitment to quality offered by our team.
welcome to our blog
While the vast majority of my duties are directly to client projects, I am also here to reach out to clients online. Over this last year, I have been designing & building our new website (hope you like it!). As our site continues to grow, more & more resources will be available for you. I will post here from time to time with tips & tricks, information, & updates. Our FAQ is in progress & anytime you have a question, you can also call us, email us, or contact us via our site. Feel free to contact me personally with any design & file prep questions you might have. I look forward to providing you with the same excellence in service that I have come to expect from this company!
And, while it certainly did not take me 30 years to compose this post, it helps that Excel offers 30 years of excellence in printing service for me to write about! Stay tuned!
