Minuteman Press of Valley Stream
11 Sunrise Plaza, Suite 3
“No amount of technology can replace the personal touch” is the philosophy taken by the Forrai family. They have been in the printing business for nearly 17 years. Last October, they moved their Minuteman Press franchise from Baldwin to Valley Stream.
Minuteman Press of Valley Stream can offer both offset and digital printing, along with a myriad of other services designed to meet both personal and business needs. Les Forrai and his sons, Michael and Richard, operate both this new store, and their north shore location, Minuteman Press of Manhasset.
Printing experts will explain whether to choose their full color offset printing or the digital style. In cases of larger quantities, for example, offset can be more cost effective. A visit to Minuteman Press of Valley Stream will include the guidance of a free consultant, something you cannot get when using an online printing service. Businesses can benefit from their marketing advice, since experienced printers, who deal with businesses all the time, tend to know what will work.
Other services include graphic design, high volume copying and bulk mail. They do printing on promotional items, signs and banners. User-friendly websites can be acquired and set up too, complete with a content management system that allows customers to edit and update themselves.
“Our presses and copiers run all day long,” says Les Forrai. “And my sons are perfectionists, making sure everything is flawless. We deliver promptly, with a strong sense of time. When a business needs printing for a convention, mailing, presentation or open house, we know how important it is to get things to them on time. We also stay competitively priced and make every effort to give good value.”
Another facet of their business is their invitation department. Printing for special occasions doesn’t stop there. They do programs, place cards, calligraphy, thank you notes, fine stationary and anything else needed to enhance that special event. Minuteman Press of Manhasset houses an invitation boutique called “Plandome Paperie.” A satellite version is being set up for Valley Stream.
Minuteman Press is a member of the Valley Stream chamber of Commerce. Les Forrai is president of the Manhasset Chamber. Both locations do a lot of work for nonprofit organizations. Hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
