Business spotlight - Time4Printing - By Michelle Libby

No company says businesses cards like Time4Printing, but the company does not stop there. Time4Printing started eight years ago, when owner Kelly Mank ran Time4Pictures, a local portrait studio, and people began asking her if she could create business cards for them. 

“We can do just about anything you can print,” said office manager Tiffanie Powers. The most common items are regular business needs like cards, brochures, typical marketing items, but the coolest items are vehicle graphics, banners, signs and window decals, Powers said. 

Over the last eight years, Time4Printing, under the direction of Mank with her degrees in business management and business administration, has grown substantially in size, having bought Sunrise Printing of Windham and most recently Brown Fox Printing of Scarborough. 

Time4Printing also prints t-shirts, hats, towels, sweatshirts and other fabrics.
With a team of eight including two graphic designers, Time4Printing also offers graphic design and can help creating a look that can market any business or person. 

“Everything we do is custom,” said Powers. 

Andrew Worth, the creative director, enjoys designing logos that go far beyond the regular cookie cutter designs and creating something special. “Anything I have free range on, creatively speaking, I like it all,” he said. He also specializes in photo manipulation. “It’s all in how you organize it.”
Melissa Carter, the other designer prides herself on being fast. She has great attention to detail and likes doing brochures, postcards, invitation and booklets. 

Not sure what you need? Mank and her team will help with that as well. Most of the Time4Printing clients are small businesses. “We love to work together with them and their marketing,” Mank said. 

“I grew up in a family of entrepreneurs. That’s where my spirit comes from,” Mank said. “We will continue to expand and grow and move forward. We’re not done yet.” 

“People come in to talk with Kelly when they’re starting up. They get options to brand themselves,” Powers added. 

Most all of the business is done by email or over the phone. Orders can be taken through the Website from all over the country. Mank travels throughout the country attending trainings and tradeshows to stay on the cutting edge of the printing world.
