Celebrating 25 Years

of Graphic Design in Portsmouth, NH

We are a totally awesome full-service print and web design company located on the beautiful and wicked scenic New Hampshire seacoast. We take great pride in our work, and in our home town. As part of our celebration of 25 inspiring years, we thought we'd share a quick history of where we've been.

Where We've Been: #1

The Franklin Block

We spent 3 years here!

Tv-riffic:

Marsha, Jan, and Cindy were all designers that worked in this office - and the suite aptly featured a set of “Brady Bunch-esque” stairs.

Until the early 1980s, the Franklin Block building on Congress Street was home to the Arcadia Theater. When the theater shut down, it became retail on the first floor and offices on the upper floors. The second floor was home to Graphic Details from 1999 to 2002.

Where We've Been: #2

25 Market Street

We spent 2 years here!

A Moving Story:

We quickly outgrew this location overlooking Market Square. When moving day arrived, the moving company showed up 6 hours late. So, we took matters into our own hands and paraded our office furniture up the street on dollies to our new location at 107 Market until they arrived.

Market Square has been the economic and commercial center of Portsmouth since the mid-1700s. It has been a military training ground, site of a meeting house and home of the State of New Hampshire’s Colonial Legislature. In 1762, it became the first area in the city to be paved, paid for by public lottery. Info courtesy of portsmouthnh.com

Where We Are

107 Market Street

We've been here for 6 years!

No Bus About It:

Our perch over Market Street gave us the perfect view of law enforcement tactical procedures during a 2010 stand-off, which fortunately ended peacefully.

This office has arguably one of the best views in town, overlooking the Piscataqua River and the Moran tugboats. Since 1967, Moran’s tugboats have guided tankers and other commercial vessels through the channel, which has one of the strongest currents in the country. Stop by and check it out!
