1978 - 1999 (The Shapiros)
On May 1 of 1978 Clarice and Norman Shapiro purchased Execuprint from Evelyn Osmon. The print shop at the time was named "Thee Printing Place". The Shapiros believe that Evelyn began her business just a few short years before.
The business then was located in a small shopping center at the northeast corner of Tampa Avenue and Roscoe Blvd, in the city of Northridge, CA. The store was approximately 1500 square feet.
Prior to purchasing Thee Printing Place, neither of the Shapiros had any experience in the field of printing or copying. It was the idea that they wanted to do something together that prompted the search for a business. Clarice's business background included real estate sales and owner/manager of an apartment complex. Norman's experience was that of sales in the fields of electronics and insurance.
Customers consisted primarily of local businesses within the Northridge and Chatsworth areas. They would bring their originals of the items they wished either copied or printed.
After a year and a half at the Tampa and Roscoe location, they moved to 19559 Parthenia St., in the city of Northridge, which afforded them a larger space, 2500 square feet, more parking space for customers and of course, for those who know the San Fernando Valley, Brent's Deli was just three doors away.
On July 2, 1987 the business was incorporated and the name changed to Execuprint, Inc.
1999 - Present (The Farags)
In April of 1999, Amin Farag and his family purchased Execuprint, Inc. from the Shapiros.
In 1997, Amin and his immediate family moved to the United States from Egypt. It was not an easy transition. The Farags had little business experience in the United States. Amin's experience was primarily selling printing equipment. (In 1986 he actually won the RYOBI WORLD SALESMAN of the YEAR. ) However, we learned and grew and believe God has blessed us.
In 2006, Execuprint purchased its first real Heidelberg printing press. It was a two color press (nothing fancy) but it worked great. The press was running two shifts a day (16 hours) and sometimes it was running 24 hours a day. All four color process work was produced in two press passes, so producing full color work would take us more than twice as long when compared to print shops that had a four color press.
In 2008, Execuprint had enough work that buying a larger press made sense. However, a larger press needed more electrical power, so in 2008 Execuprint purchased a new five color Heidelberg press, and moved to a 6000 + square foot building located in the city of Chatsworth, CA.
In 2012, Execuprint invested in a new Heidelberg Digital Production machine. The new machine helps produce high quality, short run color printing.
In 2015 Execuprint installed its first large format ink jet printer. They can print on almost any substrate including wood, plastic, plexiglass and so much more.
Execuprint also invested in Heidelberg color management software that will help match its digital production machine closely to its offset printing press and color proofing device.
In 2016, Execuprint upgraded it's wide format printer to a 10' wide, 8 color Vutek. We also purchased a digital cutter; the Zund.
In 2017, Execuprint purchased a new digital production machine; the Heidelberg Versafire. What is also really great about the machine is the media size we can print is almost 27.5" x 12.99". The machine was installed in February 2018.
Execuprint serves a wide variety of clients. Graphic Designers, Print Shops, Print Brokers, the U.S. Federal Government, Churches, Ministries, and Corporate accounts.
