What Our Clients Are Saying

In my experience with working with East Coast Graphics, not only has it been a pleasurable experience, but good for business as well. Dan Glenn and staff make navigating the world of full service printing one less thing that I have to worry about - I always know that I can trust them completely to get the work done on time and on budget. ECG works to build a relationship with their customers rather than just getting a job done - over the past 8 years I can't imagine using anyone else to do any of my printing projects from our company catalog to posters. In a time where you can start to feel like a number for most companies, East Coast Graphics remembers that the relationship between the vendor and the customer is #1."Byron Reed
