Ken Erlander, owner of Ken’s Quick Print, Inc., began working in the printing industry back in 1974, as a plate maker for a large lithograph company. After four years, in 1978, he was afforded more responsibilities and started training and running printing presses, folders, cutters and various other printing equipment.
In 1983, he went out on his own and started Ken’s Quick Print, Inc. Ken knew he could provide high quality printing at an affordable price to the residents and businesses located on the North Shore. Ken knew that customer service was the key to success in the unique community in the suburbs just north of Chicago.
Today, even with all of the discount and online print and copy options, current and new customers trust Ken’s Quick Print, Inc. for their design and printing needs. Ken and his staff continue to deliver a level of service, quality and value that many people find lacking in other vendors.
It is not a fluke that Ken’s Quick Print, Inc. continues to thrive, even in an industry that has changed dramatically over the years. Ken and his employees possess not just the specialized technical skills required of the printing business, but also the ability and desire to offer personal attention to detail and customers’ needs that are second to none.
Rhonda Schaefer joined Ken’s Quick Print, Inc in August of 1996. Rhonda was born into a printing family and it could be said that she has CMYK in her blood. Rhonda spent many years around the printing equipment operated by her father, a lifelong printer and machine operator. Her mother, too, retired from the industry after establishing a successful bindery and finishing shop. Rhonda continued the family tradition, after studying graphic design at Triton College. She now heads up the pre-press and digital production department of Ken’s Quick Print, Inc.
The staff of printers and bindery operators at Ken’s Quick Print, inc have all been long term workers at Ken’s Quick Print, inc and along with Ken and Rhonda are all dedicated to bringing you the best service and quality at an affordable price that we can provide.
