Max's Print Shop celebrates grand opening


MARCY — River Road was busier than usual as Max’s Print Shop celebrated the grand opening of its new location on Friday.

Max’s Print Shop has been serving the community for more than 40 years, providing a variety of printing services for local schools and businesses. The new location at 9555 River Road — across the street from their former site — provides more space for the business and allows room for the company to expand and offer more services.

In celebration of the new location, Max’s Print Shop’s held a grand opening Friday, featuring a car show, a broadcast from 92.7 The Drive and local artists Stephen Fletcher and Shawn “Big Sexy” Smith performing.

“We do all types of printing from screen printing to embroidery, banners and decals, we wrap cars and trucks, just about anything that you can think of that you need to print, we can print it here,” said Daniel Smith, owner and president of Max’s Print Shop.

“We’re a family business, we’ve been doing this for over 40 years, the security is in the purchase in everything we do and we stand behind everything that we do,” he added.

Smith has been with the company since 1978, working under Max Cowen, the company’s namesake. Cowen passed away in 1989, and Smith has been managing the company ever since, eventually purchasing the company in 2015.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Smith, like many other business owners, had to adapt to the uncertainty and financial impact associated with the pandemic to ensure the survival of the business.

“Right before the pandemic, 80% of our business was schools,” Smith said. “When the pandemic hit and all the schools closed, we rethought everything and we ended up printing a ton of novelty T-shirts, we got into printing masks and we decided instead of holding back, we would expand and we bought more equipment to do more different printing projects.”

Smith was able to grow his business during this time and hire more employees to meet the demands of the business, ultimately leading up to the need for a new location. Smith says the business has already started to outgrow the new location and that a new building might be needed in the future.
