For years, printing has been a family business for Robert. Robert & his father purchased a Monterey Park print franchise in 1987. Since 2008, The Print Spot has operated independently, continuing to serve the local community. These 30+ years have given Robert experience in a variety of printing mediums. He most enjoys producing creative products.
With his high-energy, “can-do” attitude, Robert leads his team to make The Print Spot stand out as a customer-centered, cost-effective, and quality-focused shop.
Robert graduated from UCLA with a bachelor’s degree in economics. Prior to being an entrepreneur he worked at Vons grocery store on Crenshaw and Olympic, where he met his future wife, Wende.
In addition to operating the Print Spot, Robert enjoys all forms of cycling–mountain, road and even tandem. Got cycling questions? Robert will happily point you to the best trails, routes, and shops around.
After spending some time in the corporate world, Wende is thrilled to be back at The Print Spot. Wende started working with Robert in 1987-1997. Her time spent as a Vice President at an investment management firm flexed muscles she’s excited to bring back to The Print Spot: superior customer service, organizational, and financial management skills.
Since Wende’s return in 2014, she has become the newest smiling face of The Print Spot. Getting to know customers is one of the best parts of her job. She loves to zip around in The Print Spot’s van, meeting and hand-delivering projects to customers. Wende enjoys juggling her many administrative roles—like keeping bills paid and the shop organized—that allows the rest of her team to focus on doing their jobs well.
Wende has a passion for creating pottery. She finds joy spinning her pottery wheel. Visit the shop to see some of her work!
