One of Lexington’s newest businesses recently celebrated its Greater Lexington Chamber membership with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
Ship N Print Solutions, the go-to resource for packing, shipping, printing and business service needs of the residents and businesses of Lexington, has been in business since October 12, and is located at 851 Highway 378, Suite 100. This is conveniently located beside the new Publix on the western side of Highway 378 with plenty of easy-access parking.
The company’s mission is to “provide shipping and printing services to small business owners and surrounding communities’ residents,” according to owners Jimmy and Susan Steele.
They opened the business for several reasons.
“We have lived in the Lexington community for almost 20 years but always worked for employers that required traveling over 45 minutes (or more), one-way, to work,” Susan said. “We recognized the need for a business that offered the kinds of services that we provide to our neighbors and community members. Additionally, we know the growth of the community is expanding on the western side of Lexington, and wanted to be a part of that growth.”
Ship N Print Solutions offers many services, including mailbox rentals of varying sizes, moving and shipping boxes, professional packing with quality packing materials, and custom design and print business cards, brochures, programs, fliers, bulletins and more. The business is a FedEx Authorized Ship Center and also provides US Postal Service postage and shipping, along with DHL International shipping.
“We are the best of all worlds! We have services all in one place that would otherwise require customers to travel to different stores,” Steele said. “We are not restricted by franchise limitations.”
Ship N Print Solutions can also make keys, passport photos, copies and faxes and also has SC notary services. The business is also able to transfer home movies and photos to DVD, and they offer professional sign, banner and stamp-making services.
Ship N Print Solutions offers a 10% discount on shipping materials and any merchandise sold in the store to fellow Greater Lexington Chamber memebers.
According to Steele, the most gratifying aspect of the job is “working in the same community in which we live, seeing and serving our neighbors and friends, and hearing our customers say, ‘We’ve needed these services on this side of town, for years! Thank you for opening your store.’”
