Applied Digital first opened its doors in February, 1987 as Steve’s Blueprinting. Of course no one does blueprinting now and we certainly don’t miss the smell of ammonia producing blueprints created.
Since then we have grown and changed with the times. We are still committed to the architectural and engineering industries but we have branched out into other area especially on demand printing and signage. Why print more then you need? It’s a waste of money, time and resources.
From the beginning our business has participated in community events. We started out supporting youth sports, The Whatcom Art Guild and many PTA’s and the YMCA. As our company grew so did our commitment to our neighbors. ADI is active in The Whatcom Hospice Foundation, The Whatcom County Boys and Girls Club, Bellingham Bay Rotary, TAG, and the Bellingham Chamber of Commerce. In times of crisis, we have donated our services to families in need. We believe strongly into giving back to a community that has been so good to us.
As a printing company we are sensitive to the ecological impact our industry has on the environment. Years ago we started a recycling program and switched to using recycled paper in all our machines. We are continually looking for ways to make our carbon footprint a little smaller. We belong to Sustainable Connections and are committed to their mission.
Our employees are our most important asset. Without them we would not be as successful as we are. They are crossed-trained and versatile. We endeavor to provide a safe, clean, fun work environment. We care about our staff's families and try to be as flexible as possible so they can be with their loved ones when they need to be. We know we can do better and this is an opportunity and a focus of ours.
Applied Digital Imaging is family owned and is local. We hope to continue to innovate and grow with our community.
