Dale Wilson, owner of Wilson Printing, worked with Paul Orfalea at the very first Kinko’s in Isla Vista back before Kinko’s turned into the household name as we know it today. I believe Dale was a manager there while a student at UCSB. Orfalea then sent him to San Luis Obispo to open and manage the 2nd Kinko’s. Obviously he took to the industry and eventually came back to Santa Barbara to start his own print shop.
After 35 years Wilson Printing has established itself as a leader and in my opinion has implemented technology much more so than many other printers we’ve worked with. Dale came on board with Axxess just in the past two years and we’ve been extremely pleased with the work they do. The company has a plethora of experienced staff and is very involved in the community – another reason to give them your print dollars next time you or your business needs something.
I started writing this mostly because I found it interesting how Dale got started (especially because I’ve previously written about Mr. Orfalea and Kinko’s) and that he has been in the business so long. But as I wrote I realized how pleased we’ve been with his service that I simply couldn’t hold back and give a plug for them!
