Picture-our peopleOur Story

Telepress, Inc. began in 1976 under the name “Realty Supply.” Our business: providing personalized stationery to real estate agents as gifts for new home buyers.

In the early 80’s our business model changed as we recognized the opportunity to expand our product line to provide business cards and stationery for large companies looking for quick turns and quality products. In those days all orders were taken via the telephone and the name was changed to Telepress.

Throughout the next 20 years we built a solid customer base, refined our production processes and added services to include protecting our customer’s corporate identity by managing their brand requirements. We built our reputation – and much of our new business was gained through referral and word of mouth.

In 1998 we broke into the world of internet ordering. Working with a strong web and software development team we created web interfaced ordering sites that would provide a unique and customized buying experience for our customers along with back-end production workflow to allow for efficiencies and economies of scale – software we own and maintain in-house today.

In 2000, we expanded from a single plant operation in Kent, WA to better service our customers nationally, by adding an additional plant in Lawrenceville, GA. This allows us to move product to most U.S. locations within 3 days via ground shipping.

Under new ownership in 2007, the management team worked tirelessly to add value to our programs, upgrade technology, increase production efficiencies, simplify the order process, and perpetually raise the bar for exceptional quality & service.

At the onset of 2012 Telepress evolved once again, and under new leadership, implemented a “soft” re-brand of Telepress, which not only included an enhanced look and feel to our brand, but also extended our service offering to include all forms of print and marketing materials and promotional items.

Today, Telepress services customers globally, providing corporate print and promotional products. We build a personalized web-interfaced ordering site for each customer that is customized to their requirements from “procure to pay.” Our customers range in size from medium to Fortune 500 and 100 companies who have been with us an average of 10+ years.

Telepress has been providing business cards, stationery products and marketing materials to Fortune 500 companies for over 35 years.
