Altabanking Interview KSL Radio Transcript: Stefanie and Josh Bevans

Segment title: Business Talk with Design to Print and Steamroller Copies

GRANT: Welcome to Altabanking. Weekly business talk geared toward elevating your financial future. Stefanie and Josh Bevans are owners of Design to Print and Steamroller Copies. Stefanie, share with us your story as business owners.

STEFANIE: So living in St. George in Washington County, Utah, back in the 1990s we realized that there were a lot of services and products that were really not offered down here and we wanted to bring kind of big city products into a smaller community. And we looked into what the needs were. We went from printing, copying and faxing to now we offer IT services and office equipment service and larger printing to now we have a national presence with Design to Print, we work with Fortune 500 companies.

GRANT: Josh, as business owners in Southern Utah, tell us about how the business environment has changed over the last 6 months and how have you had to adjust your business model?

JOSH: We’ve adjusted a little bit with safety – hand sanitizers on every corner of course – but we’ve really been doing a lot more business over Zoom and reaching out and having a remote touch. So, it’s allowed us to do a lot more national business where we use to have to go door-to-door. We’ve taken our event focus, because events are now on the backburner and we’ve changed more to permanent. So we’re working with home décor and interior designers nationwide. And it’s actually been a nice pivot.

GRANT: Looking ahead, Stefanie. What are your thoughts or plans for the future? Do you see businesses like yours being able to come out stronger from this pandemic?

STEFANIE: You know, we’re going to work our best to maintain a good financial position. And we’ve got customer diversity that we’re working and continuing to work on. It’s tough to say if businesses like ours will come out stronger, but many of our competitors have already closed their doors sadly. We’re very fortunate to have positioned ourselves to weather the storm.

GRANT: Well we wish you all the luck. Stefanie and Josh, thank you very much! This has been Altabanking. Brought you by Altabank. Member FDIC.
