Coastal Printing and Graphics, a commercial printer, was founded on April 1, 1988 (April Fool!) by Hubert Bellamy and his sister Eloise. The first location for Coastal Printing was at East Gate Shopping Center, on Holden Beach Road in Shallotte, North Carolina. James Bellamy took ownership of the company in 1991. The operation stayed in the same location until 1995 when it was moved to 125 Village Road; the original location of Kimball's Furniture (which is the same building that Jimmy worked in from childhood until taking over Coastal Printing and Graphics).
Opening the new location gave Coastal Printing and Graphics extreme room for growth; now with more square footage, it was to be filled with employees, equipment and stock.
With ideas of expansion, Jimmy sought out to gain a share of the market in the Myrtle Beach. He purchased Inlet Printing Company, located in Murrells Inlet, SC in November of 1996. By adding staff and more equipment we had more to offer South Carolina companies. In January of 2000 a new building was built to give the company a more modern and updated facility to compete in the Murrells Inlet area.
In November of 2003 Jimmy bought Print Master (renamed Inlet Printing of Myrtle Beach). This strategic move was not for the location itself, but more for the customer base that the company had and to further expand our reach into Horry County.
Now as the largest general commercial printer in Brunswick County, we provide service customers both locally and nationally.
Our Graphics and pre-press department, running on Agfa & All Mac platform computers with Creative Suite applications provide logo design, ad layouts, billboard design, custom corporate identity, and computer-to-plate (CTP) technology.
At this current time Coastal Printing and Graphics has 15,000 square feet of operational space and 25 employees with combined experience of over 500 years. Our press room is housed in its own building. We have 1, 2, 4 & 5 color presses to enable us to do the simple single color jobs up to the most intricate process jobs. We also have the capabilities to do some die-cutting and the equipment to do some extensive bindery applications.
We at Coastal Printing and Graphics look forward to taking care of your Graphic and printing needs in the future.
