By Adding Wide Format Printing & Finishing Capabilities”

There is a whole new world out there for those who want to grow their business and become more valuable to their customers. With an array of wide and grand format printing and custom contour cutting technology available, there is ample opportunity for those who can think outside the box to offer creative solutions for their client’s event and venue signage, storefront and visual communications display.

What will you learn?

  • How wide format printing capabilities could successfully transform your commercial printing environment.

  • How wide format can make you much more valuable to your existing clients.

  • How wide format will make you much more attractive to potential clients.

  • Common pitfalls of entering the wide format marketplace and how to avoid them.

  • How to create a work environment that attracts great, new employees & customers.

At last year’s Graph Expo in Chicago, Joe’s seminar was among the Top 10 of the most attended seminars. He elaborated on his printing experience, print technology and how Heritage expanded commercial printing to additionally offer wide format printing of signs, banners and custom made event displays.

A “snippet” of Joes’ presentation:


During my years as the president and co-owner of Heritage Printing & Graphics, I have experienced a lot of things that have changed the way I live my life and lead our business. I have navigated our business through the highs and lows of the economy and have been party to events that have greatly shaped how I view life and make decisions today. I have seen amazing changes in technology and communication that have revolutionized how we run and grow our business.

Expanding the Business

In 2008 I was also beginning to see that life in the printing industry was about to change again, and that my new home town of Charlotte, NC, would be a place for us to extend the reach of our business and possibly add new production capabilities to our offerings. Through a variety of new relationships, I became exposed to the wide-format printing industry and the world of event signage. At first it was extremely alien to me; the process and methods were different, the competitors were different, and the type of employees and their skill sets were very different.

Heritage Printing Charlotte

We opened the doors to our first wide format production facility in Charlotte, NC, in November of 2009. The early days of this new venture were both exciting and terrifying, I was learning something new by the hour. It was like starting all over again, after so many years of being the guy with all of the answers, I was now the one with all of the questions.

I watched our team in Maryland go from being highly skeptical about the investments I was making in wide format technology in Charlotte, to embracing it as a valuable tool in meeting our customers’ marketing and communication needs. In 2014, wide and grand format production represented more than 40% of our business revenue and exceeded 50% in 2015.

Marketing Change

Our wide format and commercial printing initiatives would have been largely fruitless if had we not embraced the amazing attributes of Internet marketing. We began aggressively marketing our company on the Internet via search engine optimization and social media campaigns beginning in the spring of 2008 with the launch of the Charlotte sales office and our website.

Internet marketing has also totally changed the way we pursue new account acquisition. By the end of 2013, sales staff and long timelines to develop new clients were abandoned to deploy trained project coordinators that respond to calls, emails, and live chat sessions generated from our internet presence.

Heritage can be found in the top three of more than 200 different Google searches for targeted phrases that we track the markets we serve, as well as, in some cases, regional, national, and international front-page exposure. We currently attract more than 400 new prospects to our two websites each business day!


In August of 2016. Heritage expanded again with the opening of 2 new locations under the brand Heritage Custom Signs & Displays. We recognize that customers’ needs are ever-changing, and adapting to them in a timely manner is critical to customer satisfaction. Our process has a maximum response time of 30 minutes, M – F, 8:00AM – 7:00PM, with most quotes in 15 minutes or less.

5th Annual Patriotism Bowl

Patriotism Bowl

 Heritage Printing is a proud sponsor of the 2016 Patriotism Bowl and the Selfless Service Concert.

The 2016 Patriotism Bowl is an annual community fundraising event that turns a local high school football game into “the greatest spectacle in high school sports”. Its pageantry creates a college bowl-like atmosphere to raise awareness of citizenship, patriotism and service for our military.

The 2012 Game featured only the second ever flyover at a high school football game, while the 2013 featured the first nighttime parachute jump at a high school game.

The theme of the 2016 Patriotism Bowl is “Promoting Patriotism” and honoring those who served. The Game will showcase two perennial football rivals: Mooresville High School and A.L. Brown High School.

All monies raised go directly to Patriotic Charities:

  • Carolinas Freedom Foundation: honoring veterans and promoting patriotism in schools

  • Purple Heart Homes: providing housing modified for wounded war veterans of all wars

  • USO North Carolina: providing services and programs for the well-being of troops and their families

Heritage has sponsored the Patriotism Bowl since its inception in 2011, through donations and printed programs. Heritage Printing believes in God and Country, supporting our military is more than a pleasure with Heritage, it’s our job!

Note from Sponsorship/VIP Coordinator, CFF Patriotism Bowl

I can’t begin to tell you how Heritage has helped. Not only has the partnership with Heritage Printing eased our burden financially, but the willingness to help, the professionalism married with patience and the guidance has been priceless. Heritage has bent over backwards to make sure we end up with the perfect product that we’re all proud of. We, the Patriotism Bowl and the Selfless Service Alliance, have asked a lot of Heritage in a short time and they’ve yet to tell us something can’t be done. Rock Stars, all of you!

Selfless Service Concert

September 11, 2016 2:00pm
CPCC’s Halton Theater, Charlotte

The Tribute to Selfless Service Concert, featuring the 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing Band and the iconic USO Show Troupe to inspire and enthuse the audience while honoring those who serve and protect our freedoms — past and present. We will also celebrate 75 years for the USO of North Carolina!

The USO Show troupe is part of an American Tradition that goes back 75 years to its beginnings in the muddy camp shows of the South Pacific. Today the pride and passion that fueled that early music lives on through the USO Show Troupe. With over 400 live annual performances, the Troupe entertains approximately 600,000 service members and their families as well as millions of civilians in patriotic audiences around the world.

Military history has established empirically that musical units are an integral part of the military. The Second Marine Aircraft Wing Band, stationed at MCAS Cherry Point, North Carolina, continues this fine tradition by representing one of the finest organizations in musical excellence. This ensemble of Marine musicians completes over 150 commitments annually and travels in excess of 30,000 miles. Throughout their travels, they uphold the old and honored Marine traditions of pride, professionalism, and esprit de corps.
