We believe in transparency, so here is the whole story.
We started as a print brokerage partnership in Mark's two bedroom apartment in Santa Clara in July of 1990 after Mark was fired at his previous company (yes, that would make a good TV movie). The legal name is Sarpa-Feldman Enterprises, Inc. DBA Progressive Solutions came about when we incorporated in 1994 and a little insurance company you may have heard of had the nerve to take all the corporate names related to Progressive and there was already a software company called Progressive Solutions, Inc. in California (who would have thought?).
By the mid '90s, it was time to develop a website, and since our name was already taken, we went with PrintHQ.com. We thought it had a nice ring to it.
Frecklebox.com was launched as a personalized children's website in April of 2008. This site was inspired by the work we were producing for TinyPrints.com and Wedding Paper Divas and we really wanted to expand into the consumer products space.
StationeryHQ.com was launched at the National Stationery Show in May of 2011. We wanted to offer the great work we did for large companies to small and independent home-based businesses. During this time we developed our mission: By partnering with people to enable their creative ideas, we change lives. Sounds a little corny, but it is our passion.
