Tarpon Springs is a unique community on the West Coast of Florida. Founded in the 1880s, it’s sponge docks and Greek influence have propelled it into a regular tourist destination and a local favorite. Attached to the most touristy area by the docks, Downtown Tarpon Springs hosts a collection of very cool shops and restaurants, and now Chris Kallas and Jenny Vitale’s "Custom Prints Today".
During a recent visit to Custom Prints Today, we got the chance to talk with Chris and get a tour of the store.
I have been a stay at home Dad. Jenny and I have been looking for a business to get into. We were going to go into the custom t-shirt business and sell them to tourists and locals in our area.
We got the printer with the intent to open up a business making and selling everything the UV printer could do. It took about 7 months, but we opened Custom Prints Today a few weeks ago.
The Mayor of Tarpon Springs came to the opening and we printed a canvas for him from his trip to Greece”.
Our website is currently being built. We plan to sell a lot online along with the retail sales.
We’re also making some sidewalk signage and plan to reach out to area wedding photographers and other businesses. “
Custom Prints Today is a perfect example of the Compress UV Printers ability print on almost anything. You don’t have to decide you want to just do art reproductions or signage or picture frames or golf balls. You can decide who your customer is going to be and make what makes sense for them.
ColDesi showed off the ability to print custom fan blades in one of our videos, but Custom Prints Today made it a reality.
