Print & Copy Factory Leading Staff
"We Make the Difference"
Larry and Becky Raney started this business from scratch in 1992, out of an old house in Irongate Road Industrial Park when there was absolutely nothing else in the area. They grew extremely fast in the first year and have continued to develop a powerful team, to help customers enjoy building their business success. Becky and Larry have continued to be a big part of the community, involved in many community organizations and sponsoring many local events. "We love what we do, and you'll love the way we do it."

Co-Owner & COO, Chief Operating Officer - Becky oversees the marketing and day to day business of the shop. Becky's expertise comes from a marketing and advertising background, including managing Kinko's Copy Center in Bellevue and then transferring to the Kinko's headquarters in Santa Barbara, California. She also has experience of managing an Alphagraphics Printshop and was a graphic designer for an advertising specialty firm before starting their business back home in Bellingham. Becky loves to discuss marketing ideas with customers and support them by consulting and teaching marketing classes. She has two little black kitties that enjoy coming in the office and exploring every nook and cranny. Becky is a wonderful quilter and gardener - you'll often see her dahlias in vases at the front counter. She still holds the title for hurdles at Mt. Baker High School, and has done a marathon and triathlon in more recent years.
