  • PrintSource opened in 1969
  • Contact Us
Don and Mary Shortman opened PrintSource in 1969 in Warwick, RI. Originally a PIP Printing franchise, this was one of the first “instant printing” shops in southern New England specializing in “while you wait” printing. In just a few short years the business had grown to 13 franchises throughout the northeastern United States.

Today, PrintSource’s home office is located Wakefield, RI and is still a family owned and operated business. Staying true to their roots, PrintSource believes in the personal touch. Call us and you will likely be greeted by Lisa Edwards, one of the current owners.

PrintSource’s friendly and knowledgeable staff has been with us for many years, so all of our clients are serviced by people who know them and understand their needs.

Keeping up with changes in the printing industry, maintaining premier customer service, and delivering quality printing at affordable rates is what makes PrintSource the leading commercial printer in southern Rhode Island.
