Document Works began operations in the Sacramento area in 1985, under the name of Overnight Copies. Placing its first machines in April of that year. The idea was to focus on companies and businesses that needed our service and go find them. We chose a lower cost warehouse facility; set up radio dispatched vans, trained our staff well and set out to become the best digital printer in Sacramento. We specialized in giving our customers free pick up and delivery, competitive pricing, high quality projects and unsurpassed customer service with overnight production.
Over the next 2 years our customers seemed to like what we were doing as we outgrew our current space. On March 9, 1987 OC moved to a new location with more than doubling our square footage. We added more high-speed copiers and offset printing into this new space. Our goal was a to become a full service reprographics center and not just a copy shop. Our competitive pricing and unsurpassed customer service brought us into the top 25 printers in the Sacramento area as reported by the Business Journal in 1987.
In the years to follow OC concentrated on listening to our customers needs and responding. We were constantly looking, asking and sharpening our niche skills. Our client base ranged from mall start-ups, software companies, training facilities, schools and churches. We found our clients were experts in their core business and they needed their staff with their floor space to do what they did best. So we would handle their reprographics needs and they handled their core business. Consulting with our clients we could stay on top of the new technology in equipment and processes so as to be knowledgeable about the best way to handle their current and future projects.
In 2001 with all the change in technology in and out of the printing business we felt a change in our company name was in order. Hence, Document Works was born with the same focus on clients. we wanted to embrace these new technologies with equipment plus staff and client training. Document Works has been in the same business park for it's whole existence, centrally located to handle all of our clients needs.
As the owner of Document Works it has been a great adventure for the last 28 years. I am thankful that I have met countless numbers of great people and made many friends over the years. There have been so many changes in the printing industry it seems like ti has become a completely new business every 5 years. Having to learn more about production technology and market changes has been a real challenge. Holding to our beginning premise our customers always stay as the core of our philosophy of how can we use this new technology to help our customers grow and prosper?
As we head into the future there are so many wild and crazy things that are going to happen in the printing and technology world it is mind blowing. My staff and I are so excited to be part of this fast paced and changing world. We would love for you to join us on this journey.
