Run like a family – by a real family
Jack McGrath founded Digital XPress in 1988 as printing brokerage—he didn’t own a single piece of equipment. That’s what the “X” originally stood for: no presses! As the business grew, and the years passed, Jack began acquiring equipment and people. While nearly all of that early equipment is long gone, most of the key people are not. Stroll through our plant and you’ll bump into McGraths: in our Web2Print department, on our web development team, even in the president’s office, where Jack’s daughter Jodi has taken up residence. And here’s the real magic: whether or not you’re related, you’re treated like family in ways that really count. That makes every employee feel invested in DXP’s success, which shows up in the quality of the work and our relationships with clients.

BOCES / COMMON CORE CONFUSION
The Common Core library is extensive and gets updated frequently. Teachers were wasting time figuring out what documents they needed, locating the correct versions and running copies for their classes.
DXP built an online storefront where BOCES staff can log in and order the most current editions of over 500 products (full color, black and white, single sheets, booklets) with options for finishing (shrink wrapping, 3-hole punch, spiral bound). The materials are printed on demand (no wasted inventory) and ship directly to schools within 3 business days.
BOCES staff have an easy and cost-effective way to manage print materials for their classrooms. A centralized resource for materials ensures consistency in document production and eliminates frustration.
“The online storefront that DXP set up for the Common Core curriculum is awesome. It takes my staff no time at all to place the orders that the school districts require. Final printed materials arrive in just a few days.”

COLONIE CENTER / POKÉMON GO GYM
Shopping mall wanted to create a unique environment in its center court that capitalized on the viral success of Pokémon Go, the popular augmented reality game. Goal was to increase foot traffic before the back-to-school season.
DXP designed and installed large format graphics using Pokémon Go imagery to create a walk-able experience for mall customers. The Pokémon Go Gym included a 17-foot round floor graphic, team banners, life-size cutouts and hidden characters throughout the surrounding areas of the mall.
The mall experienced a 40% increase in foot traffic after installation and received national media coverage:
"Digital XPress took Pokémon Go and transported it into the real world. Using their design and large-format capabilities, DXP built a Pokémon gym in center court of Colonie Center. This was the Pokéball heard round the world. Memes went out touting the experience and they spread throughout the virtual universe. Mall traffic increased 44% on the day we opened the event. We literally had visitors from across the world visiting our mall."
