On March 20th, 2017, Marcel’s Handie Printing closed their doors and past business owner, Ryan Hipson, and graphic designer, Megan Melanson, joined the Creative Color team. This new, combined team of familiar faces, to many in this region, began the journey of transitioning their skills and abilities to serve the region’s Visual Communication needs better than ever. The outcome is a streamlined, efficient team and our success has been thanks to the loyalty of local businesses, community groups and individuals in the region continuing to put their trust in this new team!
