Making the Dream a Reality
From a home business to a Brooklyn storefront, Stanley Springer continues to expand
In 2000, Stanley Springer started his printing business at the Flatbush Caton Market selling printed t-shirts and postcards. “The Market was my training ground and allowed me to interact with like-minded people.”
A native of Guanya, Springer started his printing business out of his home office printing and designing signs, postcards and other promotional items and wanted to expand to service more clients. When he learned about construction of a merchants market on Flatbush and Caton Avenues he quickly applied and became on of the first merchants in the new building. He credits the market with helping him expand his business and product offering because he was able to network with other vendors, City agencies and contacts from the Caribbean American Chamber Of Commerce And Industry Incorporated to build his client base
While at the market, he was able to save money and purchase new equipment to expand his portfolio. In 2003, Springer opened a full service print shop in Brownsville, Brooklyn with two full-time employees – a pressman and an administrative assistant. Stanley Springer Printing Services LLC is an M/WBE certified operation that offers printing services on a variety of materials including metal, wood, and glass and specializes in promotional materials for commercial businesses, schools and non-profit organizations.
“Small business makes this country go around. I want to be a part of that,” says Springer. He hopes to keep his business small but broaden its versatility. He will always be grateful for his start at the Market.
