A Vernon based printing and marketing firm is expanding.
Wayyside has acquired Lakeside Printing of Salmon Arm.
Wayside co-owner Neil Perry says it allows them to deliver a full range of services to both companies’ clients in Vernon, Revelstoke and Salmon Arm.
“We’ve had clients in these communities for years, and we’re looking forward to having a local presence so we can be all that much more responsive to their needs,” says Neil Perry, co-owner, Wayside. “We’re also excited that we can offer that much more to Lakeside’s clients in the areas of signage and digital marketing.”
Lakeside Printing, owned by Susan and Dan Renaud of Salmon Arm, has provided printing services at three stores in that city since 1975.
The couple and their 10 Interior staff members will stay on and continue serving Lakeside clients as they always have.
“We knew Wayside shared our values for service and going above and beyond for clients, so we saw this as an excellent opportunity to give our customers access to a wider range of marketing services that will help them stay competitive,” says Dan Renaud.
Wayside, formerly known as Wayside Press, was established in Vernon in 1921 as a commercial printer, and over the years, its services have evolved to meet the changing needs of customers. Today the company offers a suite of digital marketing solutions as well as signage and display services—in addition to traditional printing services.
Lakeside Printing will continue to operate under its existing name, as a Wayside company.
The change took effect June 29, 2018.
