2015 was even more exciting than 2014! Here’s a look at what happened this year!
Events at CatPrint
Our year started off with our one and only snow day of 2015! Our Customer Service Team worked from home as it was too dangerous to drive, even for Rochester standards!
WeddingWire World 2015
This was also the first year that CatPrinters attended WeddingWire World 2015. We learned a lot about marketing and business practices for the wedding industry. This year was also the 2nd year in a row that we won the WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Award!
National Stationery Show 2015
For the ninth year in a row, the CatPrint NSS team assembled to attend and exhibit at the National Stationery Show! Our new mascot, CMYKat, even made a special appearance!
Chase Corporate Challenge
For our second year in a row, Laura organized the Chase Corporate Challenge Team once again! Out of 30 companies in our Mixed Category, we placed 4th as a group! Our Cat-Sprinter Laura herself placed 17th in the female category. Considering there were over 10,000 participants, that is quite an achievement!
2015 Spirit Week
CatPrint’s annual Spirit Week this year was full of crazy and fun themes thanks to the organization of our Production Specialist Pat and the thoughts and ideas from all CatPrinters!
New York Comic Con 2015
For the fifth year in a row, the CatPrint Comic Con Team attended New York Comic Con and met up with old and new comic art & illustration customers!
Four Legged Furry Friends
Earlier this year, Customer Service Manager Nicole adopted Nova for Harper’s early birthday gift.
And he grew enormously!
At 8 weeks he was only 18 lbs.
But now, at 11 months, he is at a whopping 87lbs, outweighing his older sister Harper, by 25lbs!
Max the Cat
Max was everyone’s favorite! This senior foster cat absolutely loved purring for belly rubs.
Marilyn Monroe the pretty wildcat
As pretty of a cat she is, Marilyn Monroe was an adorable kitten who absolutely loved to play all of the time in the office.
She even surprisingly got along with the two office dogs, Coffee and Lily, even though they were the first dogs she had ever encountered!
CatPrint’s foster cat Max, along with other foster cats from GRASP had a painting session at CatPrint for a GRASP fundraiser!
Foster Kittens for a Day
We also had visiting foster kittens for a day! These babies were bottle fed regularly thanks to Customer Service Manager Nicole and Production Manager/Creative Director Becca!
Paige & Avery the mischievous sisters
These two sister cats absolutely loved to be cuddled with and petted!
Paige & Avery received their Christmas wish early when they were adopted together into their forever home right before Thanksgiving!
New Features & Offerings:
Art Quality Poster Canvas
For our customers who have been wanting archival quality giclee prints, CatPrint started offering a new stock called Art Quality Poster Canvas earlier this year!

Template Gallery – so many designs!

We were also privileged enough to be given the opportunity to interview five CatPrint customers this year!
