Meet Tim Garth of Europrint

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tim Garth.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I was born in the city of Kingston Upon Hull, in Yorkshire on the east coast of England. I grew up with working class parents living in city council owned housing, and graduated high school at 17. Never having the opportunity of a college education I worked retail for a number of years. This eventually led to a sales executive position for one of the largest UK breweries for the next 6 years. I always wanted the chance to work overseas, and escape the English weather, so the call of a job in sunny Southern California was a fairly easy decision, and 22 years later, I don’t regret it one bit!

Having landed in Orange County, California in 1995 with just two bags of clothes and a dream, I began working for a printing company in outside sales. With a Thomas Guide Map, no navigation back then, and driving on the wrong side of the road, I started selling printing. Ironically, my father worked for the local newspaper back in the UK for many years and I used to visit him, and see the large printing presses when I was a boy, never thinking one day I would be in a similar business.

In 2001, after 5 years of working for several printing companies, I decided to open my own company, Europrint, combining my European heritage with the main source of my business — printing. We incorporated the same year, and I worked out of a shared office and my home. As a new business owner and a first-generation immigrant, I worked long hours by myself building the client base to secure a future for me and my family.

There were some significant changes in marketing in the 2000s with shifts away from traditional media like print, and moves towards digital and marketing automation. The technology was rapidly changing as were company marketing strategies. It was vital to the continued success of Europrint, that we move with these changes and embrace them. I began to look at other marketing media and partnered with a number of companies to expand our portfolio beyond just print. This strategy evolved over the past decade and I made the decision to re-brand the company EuroMedia in September 2017. We offer so much more than just print, we are a multimedia company.

Has it been a smooth road?
I can’t imagine it’s a smooth road for most businesses, that’s why so many unfortunately fail. In addition to the many day to day struggles of any business, there are often a number of outside factors that impact the smoothness of the road. In the case of Europrint we had a very early set back when we were mailing millions of pieces of advertising in 2001 the same year of Amerithrax. This had an immediate effect on our company and we were almost forced to close our doors in our first year of business.

Throughout the 2000s technology was delivering rapid changes not only to equipment, but to the way media was delivered. Digital media, in particular, had a significant impact on the decline of traditional print. This forced us to make changes in our business model and reinvest money and time into other media. Something which we have continually done to keep up with changes in marketing, consumer behavior, and technology in our industry.
