Southern Graphics ribbon cutting

SOUTHERN GRAPHICS 018PRESCOTT –  Ribbon cutting ceremonies were held for Southern Graphics Tuesday morning.

The business is owned by Dee Clark, who said she’s been doing this for five years. The business began in her home in Emmet, but grew. In March she decided more room was needed and contacted Jamie Hillery, executive director of the Prescott-Nevada County Chamber of Commerce, who helped her find a building. By May the building had been renovated and was open for business.

Southern Graphics does embroidery, screen printing, signs, banners, decals, license plates, bumper stickers and offers off-site laser engraving. “Since we opened here,” Clark said, “business has doubled, maybe tripled.” She said a lot of the business came from the Nevada County Courthouse across the street, and some came from the doughnut shop next door, while other customers were driving by and saw the sign.

“Prescott has been good to us,” she said. “It’s supported us. I grew up in Prescott and wouldn’t put a business anywhere else.” Clark said when she moved to Prescott from her house, she hadn’t planned on hiring anyone. That, though, changed as the demand for her services grew. “This started as a hobby. I bought it from Tim and Penny Plunkett five years ago.”

Prescott Mayor Terry Oliver welcomed Clark and Southern Graphics to town and wished her success.
