Thirty years ago, it seemed like there were shops like Needham Press on every other corner. Nowadays, with so much scanning, printing and design power on our office/home computers (not to mention all those mail-order business card outfits with big TV advertising budgets), it's tempting to say "who needs a local print shop?"
Turns out, we do. For despite all that technology at our finger tips, sometimes what we really need is a human being who can solve our problems. That's what I found at Needham Press. I had a seemingly simple need (I'll spare you the boring details) but it sure didn't look that complicated. Nevertheless, it could not be addressed by the half-dozen other shops I called and visited. (One tried gamely, but actually made my problem worse.)
A few blocks down Chestnut Street is Needham's iconic Harvey's Hardware, a place where they carry hard-to-find parts in stock and take the time to understand your problem and help you solve it. The best way I can describe Needham Press is that they are the Harvey's Hardware of printing!
BTW - forty years ago I worked in an in-house printing department for a big corporation. Take it from me, these guys know what they are doing. Beyond that, while technology has changed, outstanding customer service has not. They deliver on both.
I'll be back.
