Before there was Ptex
Before there was Ptex there was Printex. And SmartStaff. And WebExpo. And Steady Elevation. Follow us on our journey from the bare-bones barely-lit basement to our brand new digs.
In 2001, Printex opened its (basement) doors to a select few clients, providing printing services for those who needed personal, always available service. Eventually, Printex evolved into a full service print shop offering a full range of printing, mailing and finishing services.
In 2002, Printex added a humble yet cutting-edge graphic design division. Our design department became famous in its own right, turning Printex into a printing and design powerhouse.
When one of our clients found himself in dire need of a receptionist, but unable to afford one, the SmartStaff™ Call Center was born, giving small business owners a polished corporate image without the burden of overhead costs.
With the growing popularity of the web and its central role in growing businesses within every industry, WebExpo debuted, providing our clients the cutting-edge visuals they loved, only in an interactive, browsable, navigable, web-optimized format.
In 2007, in an effort to help entrepreneurs and growing businesses get up to speed, and get professional direction in growing their business, the Steady Elevation entrepreneur network was created.
In 2008, our branding + marketing division made its debut, instantly garnering top clients for its creative services which include brand establishment and restructuring, major marketing initiatives, market research, media planning, and consulting.
More than just a company name change, the coalescence of all our divisions into one dynamic company helped us break down unnecessary boundaries, improve efficiencies, and seamlessly integrate all our divisions, to create the Ptex Group you know (and dare we say, love!) today.
With all that growth going on, we’ve been bursting at the seams. It’s onward and upward for us as we announce our brand new location at 5323 13th Ave. And while our contractor is putting on the finishing touches, we’re getting ready to break out the champagne.
