Our Philosophy

Being a company that offers a variety of creative communication services, our personal and company goal are to ensure our clients know that they are serviced well. For our clients, this manifests itself in having Empire carefully oversee and manage their creative product in whatever form that it may take. It's simple, we are a service-oriented company, so we are here to serve.

In particular, Empire serves using a set of principles. We listen. We think. We create. We deliver. At Empire, we saw a need to provide client services that understand the intricacies of managing the creative product across the world of print and digital forms and sources.

A Single Source Creative Solution: We aim to offer you a single source for your business' brand management needs. One location that can manage complex print capabilities, various applications, deadlines and schedules. Rely on Empire to generate the brand image and design that commands attention. These are needs that our clients demand of us. And that's who we serve.


We basically have four "client-focused" core values that provide our foundation. We could certainly add more, but if we can hit the mark on these, then we’ve got our client’s covered.

Stewardship: Our experience and expertise enable our business and serve our clients. Being a good steward is rightfully managing those tools. And stewardship at Empire means reliably serving the needs of our clients frugally and with the utmost integrity.

Integrity: A good reputation speaks volumes of the trust a client has in us. At Empire we let our “yes” mean “yes” and our “no” mean “no.” We strive never to lose our reputation in the eyes of the clients.

Diligence: We are about getting it done, the right way. Our diligence will push us to find that new creative idea, that new source in technology, all in an effort to give our clients what they pay for.

Trust: Trust is another one of those nebulous concepts that all companies strive to earn. However, clients know when they have it and when they don't. At Empire, we plan to earn your trust.
