The print and graphic design shop grew out of a home-based business created in 2010 after Evelyn Reyes quit her job at Savers and wanted to use her graphic design skills. When Reyes left Mexico to move to Las Cruces with her husband, Agustin, she put her career aside but she always loved her design career.
Ms. Reyes came to The Loan Fund for help to purchase a small printer and began designing and printing small items such as business cards, flyers and invitations. After business began growing, Ms. Reyes went back to The Loan Fund to purchase a larger printing machine and eventually moved into a commercial building to provide full-service printing and design at affordable prices. Quick Service Printing provides banners, stickers, custom T-shirts and decals, among other products.
“The Loan Fund helped us so much. In the beginning, we had some machines in mind that we couldn’t afford but The Loan Fund helped us. It was the big answer we were looking for, having a machine that could print bigger products, signs, banners and vinyl printing, and screen printing machines for T-shirts,” she said.
While the biggest challenge in business has been setting affordable, competitive prices, she says she’s been grateful for this opportunity to pursue her career again.
Her advice to others: “Have faith in yourself, and keep going and keep going.”
