A division of Titko Creative Advertising Services, Inc., Speedy Print has been serving the people and businesses of Southeastern Ohio and beyond since 1991. With a newspaper and advertising/marketing background, President and CEO Dan Titko started it all in a small room of his home focusing on the idea of someday operating a full service, one-stop print shop. His idea was not only to offer printing, but also incorporate his knowledge of marketing and advertising to assist small businesses in his community.
The Coupon Monthly started it all. The 40 page monthly publication serves the surrounding community with valuable discounts at area businesses. Viable enough to pursue printing and advertising even further, the Coupon Monthly propelled Titko to move into his first office location.
In July of 1992, “The Ink Spot” opened its doors on S. 9th Street in Cambridge, however the name quickly changed to “Speedy Print” after customers constantly preached about how fast the service was.
With a drastic increase in business and sales, Speedy Print outgrew its office space and was forced to move. This relocation proved to be more permanent. In July of 1993, Speedy Print set up shop on the corner of Highland and Wheeling Avenues in Cambridge. Change proved to be beneficial for Titko in his new location, as business multiplied.
In 1997, the vision of a one-stop print shop became clear when Titko added a vinyl graphics department. The ability to letter signs, vehicles and store fronts enhanced Speedy Print’s ever-growing line of services.
Speedy Print’s next growth spurt occurred during the summer of 2003, when operations transferred just a couple blocks west to the heart of historic downtown Cambridge. A giant painted mural, highlighting the history of the printing industry, brightened the East side of the building. Speedy Print remained at this location until November of 2006.
With the demand of large format printing and signs as well as growth in the printing and advertising specialties, Speedy Print found it’s current, larger, more convenient 6500 square foot facility in 2006. This location has proven to be more customer and employee friendly with convenient parking and an abundance of space to fill the growing needs of the business.
Two Local Businesses Set to Consolidate
Designavision owner to become co-owner and managing partner of Speedy Print.
Cambridge, OH (October 3, 2018) – One year after acquiring and revitalizing local print company Designavision, Cambridge native and local businessman Jim (Jimmy) Jackson is at it again. By the end of October, Jackson will merge with longtime printing and promotions company Speedy Print. Dan Titko, Speedy Print owner, struck the long-term deal with Jackson who will be co-owner and managing partner.
“I’ve known Dan for almost 30 years. We have the same passion for customer service and high-quality products,” said Jackson. “Although we both offer vinyl signs, banners, and vehicle wraps, I bring screen printing and embroidery to the table while Dan is an expert in the field of paper products and promotional items.”
The new company will keep the well-known name Speedy Print and introduce a new logo and brand campaign over time. Designavision will move its equipment and employees to 235 Dewey Avenue by the end of October to coincide with the completion and re-opening of the Viaduct Bridge project. Titko will remain closely involved in the business but looks forward to spending more time with his wife, Terri, and daughters in Florida.
“The hard work and dedication to Speedy Print has been so important to me over the past 27 years — I worked seven days a week to build it from the ground up,” said Titko. “Jimmy is the perfect business partner to continue our work and expand Speedy Print’s capabilities. I like to say that Speedy Print was established in 1991 and re-established in 2018.”
Both Jackson and Titko plan to invest in new equipment and software, hire additional employees as needed, and expand the service footprint. Redesigning gospeedyprint.com is a top priority for Jackson.
“We have a lot of room for growth,” added Jackson. “In addition to the combined network of customers, we have the Internet which opens up tremendous opportunity to print and ship anywhere in the United States.”
Discussions for the consolidation started several months ago and both teams have been working hard to prepare for the merger.
“I have to thank my family for all their patience and support, especially my dad Jim Jackson Sr.,” said Jackson. “He spends a lot of his retirement time at the shop every day and it’s been a big help.”
Both Designavision and Speedy Print will continue business as normal during the transition and look forward to investing in the community while providing outstanding service to new and repeat customers.
