How Old We Are

” We are old and young at the same time ”  🙂

We started our operations in 1986 as the “old Print Shack”, as a part of the national Print Shack franchise system. 

Marketing Ideas California was born as a home based business back in the 1990s when we operated a small local monthly publication with a circulation of 20,000 copies.

In 2000 both businesses merged and expanded even further by acquiring a few printing businesses in the area.

Our small business went from a section of a garage in Carlsbad (about 200 sq ft) to our present location of over 6,000 sq ft and plans to expand into a neighboring suite.

Our corporation also operates an ever expanding online “printing only”  website that offers printing products with national broadcasting.
