Year of 30! 30 Years of Business Printing Company

This August will mark the 30th year that BPC has been in business. We thought it would be a fun idea to use our blog to showcase our “ year of 30 .” We’ll use the blog to share ideas, tips, news, and more, all relating to the number 30.

Since this will be the first entry, we thought it would be fitting to talk about our history. Where we started, where we are now, and how we got here.

In 1988, William Ball founded Business Forms from his home. In the coming years, Ball’s wife and son, Eric, joined the company and they hired their first driver.

Between 1993 and ‘95, we opened our first office in Mission Valley, California and changed our name to Express Business Printing. Around this time, we also started expanding our business-to-business product lines.

In 2000-01, we rebranded once again to Express Printing Information Management Company. We then acquired the company Positive Image and moved our headquarters to Sorrento Valley.

In 2004-5, we became one of the first ten companies in California approved as a security printer and produced controlled substance prescription forms. We also incorporated and, at last, became Business Printing Company, Inc. We launched an online inventory integration in 2006; giving our customers more flexibility and the ability to view, update, and order their custom stock from anywhere.

Between 2007 and 2010, we acquired multiple service and customer bases, and merged with Commercial Printing Centre.

2011 brought a new design to our website and we went social. Customers and the like could now follow BPC across Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, and our blog!

We moved our headquarters in 2015 to El Cajon, California. We now reside in bigger and all around better facilities, which ensures we can do the best possible work for our customers. We also acquired Classic Imprints, an apparel branding, embroidering, and printing company.

In 2016, we added a product specialist in Boise, Idaho. He is able to provide direct, one-on-one service to our customers there.

That leads us to today, in year 30 of service. We couldn’t be more proud or any happier. We have an amazing staff and, above all else, incredible customers who are like our family. None of this would be possible without all of you, so thank you!

If you’d ask us what we think about turning 30, we’d say we’re still just getting started. There’s lot of change coming our way in 2018. Stay tuned for those announcements!
