Frank Strategic Marketing


Matt Richardson and Rob Harrison, former managers of a major retail copy chain, founded Indigo Ink Digital Printing in 2003. Frustrated by the challenges of serving corporate and business clients in a retail environment, they believed that if they started a copy and print business that focused solely on the design industry, small to medium sized businesses and business owners, they would fill a critical void in the marketplace.

Beginning with two guys and a copier, they were in business! After just a few years, the Indigo Ink team has grown to more than 10 dedicated and highly experienced team members and has acquired the best digital printing technology and equipment available.

Indigo Ink customers have access to a complete and diversified portfolio of digital printing products and services, including superior offset quality digital color printing, high volume digital black and white printing, one-to-one marketing and mailing services with variable data, high capacity large format production, and professional print finishing services.
