This month, the President of Cincinnati-based WBE-certified Evolution creative solutions’ spoke with ConnXus on behalf of their 21-year-old commercial printing supplier services. Since its launch in 1994, Evolution has been recognized for their award-winning print services for clients such as AAA, Anthem, St. Elizabeth Healthcare and University of Louisville. Evolution has been a ConnXus+ member since 2010.
Holding customer branding to the highest of standards, Evolution is notably the only commercial printer in Ohio and Kentucky with an all-encompassing seven-color digital press that can print on 3000+ substrates including plastics, wood and thick stock.
Cathy Lindemann, President of Evolution creative solutions, proudly stands behind her creative team as she tells her story about becoming a majority owner of the company. She says, “In 2004, I was teaching high school chemistry and working part-time in various departments at Evolution (KPB at the time), and not too long after I joined the team, the CEO asked me to start lending a hand in running the company.” Honored by this offer, Lindemann accepted and began to make positive innovations for the company. “I knew I wanted the company to offer more than just printing services. I took a risk, changed the name to Evolution creative solutions to more accurately reflect the vast majority of creative services we offer, and it paid off.”
Since then, the firm has expanded their in-house printing services to include promotional products such as apparel, embroidery and direct-to-garment printing, as well as other creative solutions like graphic design and brand curation. Lindemann tells her clients, “If your logo is on it—we can produce it!”
The company’s new state-of-the-art even-color digital press has full capabilities to print vast breadth of colors to ensure that each customer’s brand is consistent with their style guide. Additionally, the company prints on a wide format machine that offers white and silver printing. Lindemann elaborates, “The blend of the two machines allows our creative team to confidently match products across all customer’s desired marketing pieces.”
