The Printed Page

Partner Spotlight

Pamela Holmes was pursuing a career as a meditator after studying justice in graduate school. Shortly after, she landed a job as a proofreader with a service bureau and had an opportunity to do a little bit of everything including desktop publishing. Coupled with some graphic design experience, Pamela was perfectly positioned to run her own print shop. Today, she is the manager of The Printed Page.

The Printed Page opened in 1992 in Baileys Crossroads and moved to its current location, in Ballston, in 1994. Over the years, they have built up a loyal group of customers, including associations, businesses, government agencies and individuals. When the Hecht Company headquarters was relocated to Ballston, The Printed Page handled much of the local retailer's printing and graphic design work.

Pamela believes that what sets The Printed Page apart from other print shops is her exceptional staff. There are four full time and two part-time employees that have between 15 and 20 years of industry experience. They are particularly good at collaborating with clients to work out all the details and provide the right solution. While many competitors do only printing or graphic design, The Printed Page does everything from concept and design to printing, whether it's brochures, newsletters or trade-show banners.

Photo: Printed PagePamela appreciates the benefits of being located near many walk, bike and transit options. "Arlington's a friendly place for alternative transit," she says. "People park their bikes in the lobby. Capital Bikeshare, Ballston Metro and ZipCar are only blocks away." In the seventeen years she's worked in Ballston, she's seen transportation habits change. Some customers pick up their orders by ZipCar and others ride the Metro from Washington, DC.

Pamela says she has noticed more customers using Metrorail and bikes. But people will still ask questions about bus options and when they do, she refers them to the Car-Free Diet display, which sits on a shelf next to the front door. How does Pamela commute to work each day? She carpools from her home in Manassas with a former client. "It just came up in discussion one day that we lived near each other."
