Meet Shirley Soto and Albert Cortez of Creative Prints in Orange

Today we’d like to introduce you to Shirley Soto and Albert Cortez.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Shirley and Albert. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
It all started in our tiny garage a few years ago. We had the passion and the drive to commit to a service that provided us with the opportunity to work independently with each of our Clients. A couple of years later, we now have a Store Font and Show Room here in beautiful Orange California. The joy of bringing a smile in each one of our clients face after bringing their ideas to life is priceless. We love that we can work to help other business owners promote their company’s name and logo in a creative and professional way. Each day is filled with an opportunity to bring out the best of us and in turn we work towards building a business we are proud of.

Has it been a smooth road?
The road to success has not been an easy one. Every day is a challenge to learn new things that will help us adapt to a business that is constantly changing. No day is alike, every day brings an exciting task. We take every obstacle that we come across as a stepping stone. We learn to conquer them to move on to the next phase of our business. We love what we do, so we look forward to conquering many obstacles.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Creative Prints story. Tell us more about the business.
We work with our customers on a more personal level by helping to develop and improve a customer’s idea or design. For those with a unique idea to put on a tee, or a company looking to improve the look of their establishment, we are here to help bring their vision to life. We provide commercial screen printing and Logo design to any professional industry. We know how important it is for a business to invest in promoting and advertising; we take pride in helping them promote their business in a professional way. Any Idea is a great idea, What sets us apart from the rest is that we take every client’s needs and give 110% of our effort to provide prompt, professional service.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
This industry is always changing. We spend a lot of our time learning and studying the trend changes along with adapting the best and latest tools to bring the best product to our customers. We see our business growing within a couple of years. In 5 years we hope to open other locations around the county as well as expanding to Arizona. We hope to incorporate a division to provide our customers with access to a customizable range of tools to promote their business in a broader area for a profitable return for their investment. The outlook of our business looks Bright! 🙂
