Kim Kretchmar has been looking for new space for her K2 Advertising and its associated businesses, Print for Less US and Mighty Wraps, for a year. She’s also wanted to add employees.
US Logo has been wanting to add a wrap business to its company.
Now, both companies are accomplishing their goals through a merger.
“One thing led to another,” Kretchmar says. “It was like, this just makes sense.”
Kretchmar is moving her businesses to US Logo’s 24,000-square-foot facility at 520 S. West St.
K2 Advertising is a full-service ad agency, Print For Less US is a print and design company and Mighty Wrap is a vinyl wrapping company that K2 bought a couple of years ago.
“It just makes it really nice for the client,” Kretchmar says of having all three businesses.
She says now there’s added benefit with the US Logo merger.
“They’re obviously a major player in T-shirts and embroidery and sublimation,” Kretchmar says. “This is going to be good for all our customers.”
The companies will retain their names. Kretchmar will take on a consulting management role.
“I’m not going anywhere.”
Kretchmar says she and US Logo owner TJ Smith are still working out some details, but she says she expects a smooth transition.
“Their philosophies are very, very similar to ours,” she says.
“Customer service is huge to us. We know it’s a major thing for them.”
