A history of service…

Crisp Imaging had humble beginnings as a single Copy Club shop in Orange, California which opened in early 2001. After 22 years, 11 moves, and 3 kids in the corporate world, Gary and his wife Julie decided they wanted to live in Southern California for the rest of their lives, raise their children, and become entrepreneurs.

The Crisps loved the idea of providing a customer-friendly alternative to Kinko’s. Their vision was to be a real family-owned business that would provide exceptional customer service throughout Orange County and Southern California. They envisioned themselves not only able to serve the community through their company, but also in giving back as business owners, a key driver of their philanthropy that remains to this day.

A few months after Copy Club had opened its doors, customers kept asking them if they could print reprographics. They realized that they had opened a digital services business in the hotbed of Architects, Engineers and Construction companies that is Southern California. They switched gears to serve the market and create real vendor choice, deciding to de-franchise and created their own name, Crisp Imaging Reprographics, named after Gary and his wife Julie.

Those days were quite different from what Crisp Imaging has become today, the largest independent imaging company in California selling reprographics, color services, and technology solutions. Julie and Gary put everything they had into the business, investing most of their savings and often working around the clock. In those days, Julie did the books, they both did the selling and Gary solicited the investors and local businessmen who helped Crisp Imaging become what it is today. Slowly their hard work began to pay off, and they started to grow rapidly.

With the reprographics industry's shift toward less printing, more technology, and increased digital solutions, in 2014 C2 Reprographics changed its name to C2 Imaging. In the spirit of personal customer service, on the eve of their 15 year anniversary in 2017 Gary and Julie decided to change the company name to Crisp Imaging. Crisp Imaging currently has eight Southern California locations, 132 employees, and 48 cars to serve its customers. Crisp Imaging’s “Customer Driven Culture” makes customer service its #1 priority at all times by understanding needs and exceeding expectations.
