Who Is Copy Cat Printing?

logo

Founded by Irving Pritzker in 1969, Copy Cat Printing was one of America’s first ‘quick printing’ businesses. Using smaller printing presses, Copy Cat had faster delivery times than larger commercial presses, and this service became wildly popular. For the first time, customers could literally wait in the store for their ‘quick copies.’Today, Copy Cat Printing is owned by Paula Smith, a successful entrepreneur with three other copy businesses in the city. Copy Cat is a city and state certified Minority and Women Business (MWBE). Copy Cat is truly a family, with many on our staff working here for over 20 years. Copy Cat’s hands-on team prefers working with our customers personally and can help you find the best products for any budget.

 

The best news is, a member of Copy Cat’s experienced staff is with you each step of the way to make sure that your T-shirt design is one you’ll be completely happy with.

So if you need to make changes, or things don’t look ‘quite right,’ – you’re not alone, your friends at Copy Cat are here to help you.

When you work with Copy Cat, you get the exceptional, top-notch customer service that we’ve been famous for the last 44 years.

Even if you only want to make one T-shirt, Copy Cat will give you the same attention we give to our biggest customers.

Imagine creating jerseys for your child’s little league baseball team, T-shirts for your next company outing or a keepsake to celebrate a family reunion.

You can turn a favorite photo into a lasting expression of your personal style.

You can create many dozen T-shirts, or as few as one!

There’s no guesswork, no setup fees, and if it doesn’t look right, you can do it all again – for free!

Sounds quite different than what the “other guys” are doing, doesn’t it?

Online printer? Must be complicated…

When you think “online printer,” you might think of the “big guys” who advertise on TV.

BadPrints

Heard of ’em?

You may have used them before.

They promise great customer service, quick turnarounds and low, low prices.

Sure… they’re cheap – in more ways than one!

We’ve heard nightmare stories from customers who paid for their orders and then waited weeks to get their T-shirts:

And the result? Missed deadlines and unhappy bosses.

Other people placed T-shirt orders, and the ‘big guy’ printer held them hostage until they paid additional fees. What a disaster!

quote

 

If you’ve used a “big guy” online printer in the past, no wonder you might feel burned.

You’re told to upload something to their website, and then poof! It’s gone. You hope it will be ready by the time you need it, but you can’t be sure.

quote

 

And let’s not forget their customer service. Or lack thereof. In fact, more than 1,000 complaints against this “big guy” printing company have been made to Consumer Affairs, a consumer advocacy and reviews website.

There Is a Better Way

“We love our new designed T-shirts. Outstanding service and great quality. We’ll certainly recommend to our friends!”
– Scott L. West, Scott L. West Construction Inc.

When it comes to online printing, forget the smoke and mirrors. If you’ve used a “big guy” printer in the past, just know one thing: not all online printers are this way.

You can create quality designs from your own computer, and do it The Baltimore Way, with Copy Cat Printing.

Copy Cat is known as Baltimore’s ‘go-to’ printer when you need a job done quickly.

Happy Customer

We take pride in delivering a job and hearing “You rescued us again!” from our clients. We love seeing the relief on someone’s face when they come in with a last-minute project and know, without a doubt, that we will make it happen.

Not only will Copy Cat meet your expectations, we’ll exceed your wildest dreams to get the job done right.

You think I’m kidding? That’s the Copy Cat way.

Tom

Manager Tom Fincham had a young couple who needed wedding invitations done in an hour. They said the printer they had been using “abandoned them.”

Known for his flawless and fast production style, Tom stayed late, printed and cut the invitations himself, and got the job done on time. The couple (now happily married) couldn’t have been more thrilled.

Tom will work with YOU to help your job flow quickly through our shop and to your desk.

Deb

Manager Deb Wilkinson has been with Copy Cat since the 90’s. Through unmatched attention to detail and response time, Deb gets your job done – no matter what’s going on outside!

Deb once received a late-night phone call that a man had been shot in front of one of the Copy Cat locations at that time. The man was taken to the hospital and, thankfully, he turned out to be okay. But some of the shots fired went through the glass front of the building and exterminated the copier. “We buried the equipment, but we were business as usual the next day!” she says.

Let Deb Help Make Your T-Shirt Designs Come to Life!

Earl

Delivery and Bindery Expert Earl Baltimore has been with Copy Cat for more than 20 years. He knows the city like the back of his hand. With Earl on your side, you don’t ever have to worry about getting your job to its final destination.

One elderly client of Copy Cat had locked her keys out of her car, so Earl drove her to her house in Frederick to get her spare key!

Another time, Earl helped a religious group at a conference at the Convention Center meet their printing deadline. They needed more than a million copies – quickly. So Earl brought the copiers down to the Convention Center and worked, 24/7, to get the job done right. The group sent him a plaque as their way of saying ‘thanks!’

Let Earl Deliver Your T-Shirts To You Fast!

Lisa

Nothing stops Expert Printer Lisa Tasker from meeting her deadlines. She once got stuck in an elevator while delivering a job on University of Baltimore’s campus with a tight deadline. “I called from my cell to make sure the client knew I was on the elevator with the delivery and would be there as soon as the fire department showed up!”

Let Tom, Deb, Earl and Lisa’s speedy skills help you meet your next deadline!

A True Baltimore Institution

building

Ever seen the hit TV show The Wire? If you have, then Copy Cat may look familiar: Stringer Bell (played by Idris Elba) owned a print shop called Copy Cat Printing!The HBO crew filmed episodes at Copy Cat, and, as you can see from this YouTube clip (disclaimer: this video contains rough language), Stringer looks legit! Here, he’s complaining about incorrect paper delivery with one of his employees. He then waits on ‘customer’ Jimmy McNulty (played by Dominic West).Even the name ‘Copy Cat’ may ring a bell. For years, our sign stood proudly on top of the building at 1502 Guilford Ave. Today, the building hosts an artist collective that’s become a hub for Baltimore. It’s known as ‘The Copy Cat Building.’

 

This piece of machinery can create full-color images on both light and dark T-shirts.

Copy Cat Printing uses it for its consistently high quality and super quick turnaround.
