On June 28, the Curtis 1000 brand will change to Taylor Print Impressions. It’s all about creating a more integrated, connected partner to fuel your growth — fully harnessing the power of Taylor for the very first time.
Focused subject matter expertise. Creative services. Marketing data and analytics. Advanced technology tools. We’re uniting these capabilities and facilities from coast to coast, reducing complexity to unlock your brand’s potential.
This change doesn’t affect much, but you’ll need to be aware of the following:
Our parent company, Taylor, has been part of Curtis 1000’s brand DNA for some time. By formally uniting with Taylor as Taylor Print Impressions, we gain access to 78 production facilities, millions of square feet of warehouse space and more than 10,000 employees — all of whom are dedicated to building a bold and vibrant brand for you.
Q: What is happening?
A: Curtis 1000 is uniting under one vibrant, unified Taylor brand. Starting at the end of June, you will see Curtis 1000’s brand change to Taylor Print Impressions. In addition to a brand change, we’ll also have a legal entity name change to Taylor Print & Visual Impressions, Inc.
Q: Why is it happening?
A: Curtis 1000 has been a subsidiary of Taylor Corporation for years. Sharing one brand unites the strength of our teams, capabilities and facilities across the country so we can meet your changing needs faster with greater results.
Q: When will this change occur?
A: We are planning for the name to go into effect on June 28, 2021. However, throughout the remainder of 2021 you may still see the Curtis 1000 brand as we phase it out on customer portals, our website and location signage.
