PC Print Center (or Purple Cow Print Center) was established in 2004 with the first location in Ankeny, Iowa. Our Owners, Grant Maupin and Bill Lankford, were both from Kinko's and worked under Paul Orfala, (founder and CEO) for a combined 35 years plus. PC Print Center was a locally owned option for the same kinds of digital print services they both knew so well. In 2007, PC Print Center expanded into West Des Moines, adding more services and the convenience of two locations to our customers.
PC Print Center is a full service print, copy and design center that really stands apart from the rest of the herd. We don't just provide printing, we provide ideas - real, valuable solutions to your document production needs. With the experience and equipment to see your job from start to completion, we'll work within your budget to ensure you get the most for your money. Your projects will be completed faster and more efficiently than you thought possible. And we will continue working like no other print service provider to earn and keep your business.
To sum it all up, a Purple Cow is something entirely unique from everything else around it - something extraordinary that will definitely get noticed. That's the kind of service we at PC Print Center aim to provide - every customer, every project, everyday.
