Why Rockland? We reached maximum capacity at our location in Hingham and desperately needed to expand. Rockland had the perfect building for us at the perfect price. We renovated an older building so we could make room for all of our darkrooms & printing rooms and expand our services. Renovations took about 8 months but it was worth it! We moved from Hingham to Rockland in the spring of 2013 and couldn't be happier.
So where is Rockland?
It is just 22 miles south of Boston! You can get to us via Route 3. We have full directions on our website. We also offer weekly deliveries into Boston. Don't worry if you can't make it to us. If we can't deliver it to you, you can upload files directly thru our website and we can ship everything back to you!
What kind of town is Rockland?
Rockland is a small town just south of Boston and was recently (2013) listed as one of the top ten places to live by the Boston Globe. Rockland also has two old factory buildings that have been converted into Artist space. One is the E.T. Wright Building a former shoe factory and the second The Sandpaper Factory. Not to mention it is home to Paul's favorite place to eat Bella's Italian Restaurant. He recommends #35 on the wine list, it is a nice Chianti. Rockland Rocks!
