Jim Hopkins began working in the printing industry in 1975 when he and wife Arnie ran a single press out of their garage. Jim worked for Timken Roller Bearing Company during the days and would print projects on nights and weekends. After two years of garage printing, the Hopkins moved to a new location in German Village and ran their newly renamed company, Hop-To Printing. Arnie would take orders during the day and Jim would print them at night. Jim continued to work at Timken an additional year before printing became his full time career. By 1980 Hop-To Printing was doing a fair amount of commercial work, resulting in a rename to J.F. Hopkins & Associates Commercial Printers. Through the company’s hard work, commitment to technological advancement, and dedication to customer service, they have become the $18 million company they are today: Hopkins Printing.
Our mission is to provide print related services while being easy to do business with.
In 2011 Jim Hopkins named Roy Waterhouse as President and Vicky Tilton as COO. Roy and Vicky will be leading the company into the future. Hopkins will be continuing to focus on the core business of printing while expanding into additional services like large format printing, web2print technology, storefronts, promotional items and print management services. Hopkins was acquired by HGGC and Four Cents Holdings, LLC in January 2022. With our continued focus on lean manufacturing and continuous improvement, we will be able to further grow and serve our clients for decades to come.
