Established in 1988.
In 1988, Christeen Kelley decided after working for other companies she could establish her own printing service business, starting with one small copier doing 19 copies at a time, renting a 100 sq. ft. location in the East Bay.
ASAP has now shifted to the digital age for better speed and service, while still employing our long time staff. Always a leader in technology with printing, copies, computer design, notary, credit card acceptance, free Wi-Fi and now Print & Go from the phone.
Most orders are completed in the same day if not next day. ASAP has always offered free ground shipping to anyplace in the United States since 1988 with no rush fees.
Meet the ASAP FOUNDER
The year was 1987 when I first considered opening ASAP Printing & Promotions, and it was a very different time than today. I had been working in the field of Public Relations for a couple of years and had helped a quickly growing company of Fitness Centers build from three up to 24 locations, and then moved on to help the local association of real estate agents with their public relations program, including weekly newsletters, promotion tools, and so on.
There was a need for access to marketing tools and promotion, and I began creating sales flyers and brochures during my weekends and evenings. As it became clear that I needed to create a company for those who needed promotion items and flyers, the idea of ASAP was formed. Before long, our clients were repeating our line, “if you need it ASAP, you better call us…" and they did.
Over the years, ASAP and I, have grown and developed, but our idea of helping other businesses and individuals market their products and services has remained strong.
We’ve come a long way! However, in this digital age, it is also easy to get lost in the virtual world and lose touch with the humanity of your business. Behind every successful business is the person who put it together. That’s where we are now.
