Catalyst is about growing your business quickly. The approach is powerful. When it kicks in, things start to happen fast. Often a shop may not be ready to maximize the full potential of the Catalyst program. We recognize this, and have put together the industry’s most qualified group of expert consults to help you bring those areas that need help to their full potential.
Consultants can be retained on a project-by-project basis, or available for hourly advice. As a Catalyst Accelerator or Coaching client, you have access to them on an hourly basis within the program.
Each consultant has their area of expertise. They are available to work with you over the phone or onsite if you choose.
Consultants are experts in: plant layout & design, business systems, art work creation, prepress, and screen making, print production, all levels of production competency, human resource management, operations metrics, color management, quality systems, and many more.

The program has worked very well for me. I get new customers everyday. In fact today I have four new clients. So far this year (April 2017) I have surpassed last years sales by over 48%. The best part is the sales are a higher value and a much higher profit margin. My supplier actually called to thank me and ask what I have changed in my business to reflect such a large increase in purchasing.Thomas Van Bost Haley Printing, New Hampshire
