BKDW News: Recovery from Water Pipes Burst

Breaking News at BK…
Deepest apologies to all…
I know, I know, the timing really sucks….
As of 11/27/18, due to major water pipes bursting and flooding, and the resulting damage, while insurers and contractors do their thing, BK Designworks’ operations will be limited until further notice. Status updates to come as restoration progresses.

If you plan to stop in, please call ahead.
IMPORTANT: If you have health concerns such as asthma, MCS or allergies, please wear a mask.

I will make every reasonable effort to complete all that’s possible, however, know that , for the time being, any In-house printing/copier jobs would be outsourced, so our usual pricing, timing and options will change.

Best thing to do is ASK and we’ll figure something out, okay?

All proofing will be electronic and emailed. Paper proofs, In-house regular copies and blueprint copies will not be available for now, until the sheetrocking and cleanup are done.

Thank you for your continued patience,
trust and business 🙂

What Makes Us Different?

EXCEPTIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE: Personal attention with an economical can-do attitude and a genuine desire to help you look your best. Real Service. Real People.

ACCESSIBILITY: You can reach me by phone, email, snail-mail, or by stopping in.  We are also reachable via Facebook and LinkedIn.

CONSISTENCY OF SERVICE: You will not be shuffled from one customer service rep to another, because there are no customer service reps or operators. You get the owner. Me. Nothing beats personal communication and genuine customer service.

HIGHLY FLEXIBLE – ADAPTABILITY: Most commercial/online printers and promotional product services severely limit what programs and file types they can produce from.  BK Designworks, employs both Mac & PC. While we don’t have every program out there, we do have the majors, like Adobe Creative Suite, Quark, and and many minors, like MS Publisher, Printshop, Word, Works, Powerpoint or Excel. And, because our software knowledge is pretty diverse, we may be able to help you resolve document issues. This helps BK print a better product for you, and educates you so you are better able to create what you need in the future.  With so many resources, I can usually figure out a way to “Get it done.” And if I can’t, will find someone who can.

BUSINESS CARDS FAST: Need business cards for a new employee tomorrow? For today’s conference? How about 500 “emergency” cards in an hour? (Psst, call or email the info. I’ll let you know when they are done!)

Diane, owner

Diane, founder-owner

These are just a few ways BK Designworks can help make your printing experience a positive one.  That doesn’t happen if you have to press 1 to reach a service rep, press 2 to leave a voice message, 3 to leave a call-back number. Calls made to BK Designworks during business hours will always be answered by the owner. Me. Diane.

Walk-Ins, email, snail mail, ftp and phone calls welcome! Stop in and say “Hello” when you’re in the neighborhood. I’d love to see you!
