Tony and I met in college where we studied Graphic Arts and Advertising. We married in 1985 and together have more than 30 years experience in the industry, with most of Tony's being in the Commercial Printing side.
Lighthouse Grafix was born when I was involved with our kids elementary school PTA. I was trying to do a fundraiser with school spirit and wanted to have shirts created for the kids. After much searching and stress, I told Tony one night how frustrating it was to try and find one source who could help with designing a school logo, getting the apparel, taking orders and having them filled. Pricing was all over the place and customer service was non-existent. Tony said, "Well if you can't find a source to do it, why don't we do it ourselves?" That was in 2006 and I took his advice and Lighthouse Grafix was born. We started with Chapel Street Elementary School Spiritwear and went on from there. Parents liked what they saw and asked who did the work. Soon came teamwear, shirts for events and other fundraisers, chorus, band and more. Lighthouse Grafix has grown every year since then. In 2006 we started with Imprinted Apparel and Printing, Promotional Products were added in 2009 and Embroidery in 2011.
Over 90% of our business has come by referral and we are very proud of this. We work with schools, community centers, major corporations, chambers of commerce, small business owners and individuals and we treat everyone like their job is the most important - because it is.
