ZippityPrint.com is a union print shop headquartered in the Campus District that offers a plethora of printing services to customers on a nationwide scale, including to many industries such as the financial sector, union trade companies, not-for-profits, political affiliations, and many more. Through eco-friendly, full and two-color offset and digital printing, ZippityPrint specializes in printing a variety of marketing and promotional materials, political campaign materials, as well as offering graphic design services. While they do offer these print services, Zippity takes the extra step by providing an unwavering devotion to their customers along with holding fun, in-house events like their summertime Food Truck Thursdays.
“You have to care about the people you work with,” says ZippityPrint.com’s Director of Creative Services, Christine Cirigliano, “You put yourself in their position and you think about where their passion comes from.” Cirigliano, who comes from a background in marketing and creative services, was brought on to the ZippityPrint team back in September of last year. She, along with the rest of the staff, carries the same mentality as ZippityPrint.com owner Joseph Dell’Aquila, which is that “people are the priority”.
Due to this strong commitment to the customer, ZippityPrint sees a lot of repeat business, especially from those running for political positions. By the nature of being a union print shop, ZippityPrint works with a lot of political candidates across the country. Cirigliano mentions that often times when candidates or other businesses that want to work with Zippity are local, she likes to be able to go meet with clients and really get a feel for what their brand is all about to provide them with the best possible prints.
When asked about what sets them apart from other print shops, Cirigliano says, “It’s the expertise that the people have in our jobs here. We hire people who have the same passion and vision as ZippityPrint.” ZippityPrint staffs 15-20 people in their shop, a majority of which are full-time and a few that join the team seasonally to help during election periods. While Cirilgliano highlights staff expertise at the shop as something that sets them apart, ZippityPrint also holds an event call Food Truck Thursdays, something that is quite unique for a print shop.
Beginning in the summer of last year, ZippityPrint began holding these Food Truck Thursdays right outside of their shop on East 23rd Street. With music, cornhole, and local food trucks, folks that work at local businesses in the Campus District have better access to a quick lunch within walking distance, along with a chance to get to know other people working in the area. Zippity has already began their Food Truck Thursdays this year, which are hosted every other Thursday from 11:30am-1:30pm until August 30th. Check out the flyer below to learn more.
Moving forward, ZippityPrint.com looks to keep expanding their reach to new clientele as well as add new staff members. They’re currently beginning to step up their staff, mainly in the sales department, and those that are interested in joining the team are encouraged to reach out to email@example.com to learn more. In the meantime, come by a Food Truck Thursday to enjoy some great, local food and a chance to get to network with your neighbors!
