Colleen Kimball, Director of Business Development

When Technicraft first opened its doors in 1969, it was originally under a different name and just as the computer age was beginning. Previously doing business as the Graphic Arts Studio – now Technicraft is known for their graphic design, printing solutions for artists, and a full studio for all of your business branding display needs.

The name change that took place all those years ago was to jump onto the digital bandwagon that would pick up speed and never slow down. On a recent tour of the family-owned business with Colleen Kimball, Technicraft’s Director of Business Development, she mentioned that it was her grandfather’s way to say that, “we’re going to be technical and crafty.”

True to the core, Technicraft has done both to keep up with technology and maintain the handcrafted nature of the process. Whether you’re a business just starting up, emerging artist trying to get noticed or have been established for years, Technicraft specializes in design, storefront signage, fine art framing, canvasses for your artwork, printing, and all of your trade or craft show needs.

For startups and individuals starting from scratch, Technicraft will take you from the branding process all the way to the print pieces you’ll need to make a good first impression.
