BRISTOL - Kris Squires Print & Promotional Products LLC helps customers to create a plethora of personalized products promptly.

The business, located at 21 Lexington St., was founded in May 2006 and is run by Kris Squires, owner, Brian Kelly, graphic designer and Mary Beth, office manager. They offer color printing for a full line of products from T-shirts and hats to office supplies to USB drives, fidget spinners and more.

“We help businesses build their identity,” said Squires.

Squires said that she got her start at Hanson Office Products, which was located in Bristol Plaza, in 1989. She has worked together with Kelly since he came on-board in that business in 1998. When she started her own business, she retained many long-standing, loyal customers, which has brought her success. Beth joined in 2012.

“Last year was a record year,” said Squires. “We brought in a record $1 million in sales.”

In addition to loyal customers, Squires said that her business has been successful because she and her employees are “constantly educating themselves” on what’s new in the industry.

“We go to trade shows a lot,” she said. “There are always new items and concepts coming out.”

Beth stated that people are also “fans of our customer service.”

Squires said that all projects are taken on “with a sense of urgency.”

“Our turnaround is outstanding,” she said.

“Our printing is also of substantially better quality than a lot of our competitors,” Kelly added.

Squires said that she always seeks to provide customers with a personal touch.

“I just recently did a project for AM Fitness and the owner told me how much they preferred having me come over there and overload them with items,” she said. “That way, they could touch and feel what they were going to be buying rather than just seeing it online. People often say that online has the best prices but we’ll beat them nine out of ten times and chances are we’ll recommend a higher quality product.”

Beth said that Kris Squires Print & Promotional Products LLC is a “one stop shop.”

“We’ll help you with any project from beginning to end,” said Squires.

Going forward, Squires said that she may be interested in hiring a sales manager.
