If you’ve seen a flyer posted on a storefront in Patchogue, you’ve seen Patchogue Printing’s work. In 1991, Patchogue Printing was established by Janet and Jim Pickett and it remained in business for the next 24 years. In January 2015, Patchogue Printing merged with the printing company Printers 3 and is now located at 43 Corporate Drive in Hauppauge.
Fortunately, you don’t have to go to Hauppauge to utilize their services. Printers 3 and Janet Pickett can be found at many Chamber meetings and events.
“We now have a larger staff, better equipment, faster turn around and a delivery service so you don’t have to come to Hauppauge,” said Pickett. “We will come to you.”
The owners of Printers 3 are all second generation printers. Between them all, they have 54 years of printing experience. Even in Hauppauge, they know the importance of Chamber membership in Patchogue.
“Patchogue Printing joined the Chamber of Commerce the moment we opened in 1991 and it was the best decision we made,” said Pickett. “It was the Chamber of Commerce that helped us grow and stay in business. I believe I would not be in business if it wasn’t for the Chamber. The executive directors truly try to help you market your business. I would and do recommend joining to every business owner I meet.”
And, she honestly does.
As a full-service printing company, Printers 3 has the capacity to conquer any printing job, large or small. They can fulfill your business printing needs through business cards, brochures, stationery, postcards, reports, carbonless forms, catalogs, direct mail, journals, data sheets and wide format posters. They do all bindery in-house, which includes a variety of services from scoring to saddle stitching. Printers 3 also has an experienced graphic design department that can produce logos, brochures, menus, invitations and newsletters from concept to completion. They also proudly use American-made paper and ink, and have state-of-the-art equipment that can take on any project.
“We have a Xerox® 1000 Color Press that rivals offset printing in speed, color and quality at a far less cost than an offset press,” said Pickett. “We have an OCE Variable Print 6160, which is a high-speed black and white copier that can do reports, forms and financials in a fraction of the time it took our old copiers. We also have a Xerox® Nuvera, another high speed black and white copier. Our new booklet maker can produce booklets much faster and more efficiently than we could ever do before.”
The motto of Printers 3 is, “Your image is our business” and they truly love helping businesses improve their image or create marketing campaigns to brand their businesses. And, the best part is that you don’t have to go anywhere for these services; Printers 3 will come to you.
