As I begin my 37th year in the reprographics industry, ARC Reprographics has given me more printing services and capabilities to offer our customers than ever before.
Owner John Curry, with recommendations from brother and operations manager Kevin Curry, has always had the latest technology in digital copying and printing.
My job, as outside sales rep, meshes with our staff of professionals. Every associate at ARC has a minimum of 12 years experience, with four associates with well over 20 years.
We offer printing solutions to a wide array of customers, from walk-in clients to pick-up and delivery services at any business in the region. We offer digital legal printing services for attorneys in the area.
We work with law firms, construction companies, casinos, architects and engineers, schools and hospitals. Many have been clients for more than 20 years.
We have a plan room for customers to send files, view them and order prints, right from their office or smartphone.
Our color studio offers color copies, wide format color plans and renderings, color banners and signage, and color printing services for artists and galleries. Finishing services include mounting, laminating and custom framing.
I make the initial contact and sit down with clients to go over their needs, and then I turn it over to Kevin and operations. Kevin then determines what department will take the job and see it through.
Entry: I was a former owner of two print copy shops in Atlantic City prior to joining ARC Reprographics in 2011.
The challenge is the ever-changing world of reprographics, with new equipment and new requests, but there’s never a problem with meeting deadlines.
About me: I’m active in the Mays Landing community, where my kids grew up, and the Atlantic City business community. I give my time to several organizations, including the Greater Atlantic City Chamber. I love to visit my kids, one in New York and the other in Rhode Island.
