About DAOSbiz

DAOSbiz specializes in developing, improving or simply enhancing the image and function of small businesses. We do this primarily through professional Graphic Design, Printing and Promotional Items, but as a "One-Stop-Shop",we can assist you with just about anything else for your business as well. We offer all this at the personal level too…you don’t need to be a business to benefit from DAOSbiz.

We can do it all for you, or just the parts you can't do yourself - and always within your budget and timeframe.

We are a perfect mix of "old-school" customer service and modern technology. We get to know you, and we remember you and your projects, because you will always be interacting with David or Oscar, who truly cares.

Oscar

"I'm the promotionals guru.  I'm out and about, interacting with clients all the time - we usually end up talking about life as much as business.

I'm a hugger, so watch out!

I volunteer at the Community Clinic, where I became a medical assistant to be more useful.  I also teach diabetes classes there.

Cooking from scratch, reading, crosswords, spirituality and positive energy are my interests."

David

"I'm the design and printing guy.  I work behind the scenes, making sure everything runs smoothly.

I love the challenge of coming up with unique, effective designs for each client.  Improving upon existing designs is a blast.  And I have a weird obsession with forms. 

Gardening, home improvement and coding are my hobbies." (btw, I do our website, so let me know what you like and don't like.)

DAOSbiz is convenient.

We are always open online, but the official office hours are from 9:00am to 5:00pm Monday through Friday, and closed weekends and major holidays. Special appointments are available if necessary.

You can order by email, website or phone anytime. We try our best to work within your busy schedule.

We are willing to work with most types of computer files. In most cases, we can work with whatever you design on your own.

We keep your projects on file for many years, so just contact us if you ever need anything relative to one of your projects for a reorder.

DAOSbiz is friendly, comfortable and sincere.

Whether you order 1 or 1000, whether you are “blue-collar” or “white collar”, whether you speak English or Spanish, your business is important to us.

We will work within your means…why get more than you need or can afford? You don’t need to be a big business to look like a big business.

DAOSbiz is dedicated to your complete satisfaction.

At DAOSbiz, we care about what we do…your satisfaction is our success, and repeat business is our ultimate goal.

The owners, David and/or Oscar, are at the store everyday to ensure top-quality service - everyday. They’ve been doing this for a long time, and they know how to do it right.

DAOSbiz is current.

We utilize the latest Adobe design software for all our in-house work, but we also keep other popular software on hand so that we can work with and print just about anything you bring to us.

DAOSbiz is reliable.

At DAOSbiz, every project must be proofed by the customer. We want you to know exactly what you are getting…no surprises.

We keep samples of your orders on file to help match reorders as closely as possible.

When we commit to a due date or time, we will do everything within our means to keep it. We will let you know beforehand if a due date is not possible.

DAOSbiz offers GREEN alternatives.

Recycled Paper - Just about anything you order with regular paper, you can have made with a recycled paper alternative, all the way up to 100% recycled content.

Post-Consumer PET - PET is one of the most common consumer plastics used. Post-Consumer PET can be recycled into a range of products that would otherwise be made of polyester. Shopping Bags are a common use of this. 

Organic Fabric - Shirts, Bags, Hats, etc. can be made from 100% organic cotton.

Recycled Plastic - Most Promotional Items made from plastic offer a recycled plastic alternative.

Plastic Made from Corn - This plastic is just like the real thing, except it's made from 100% renewable resources.

Earth Friendly (GREEN) alternatives usually cost more than traditional options, but doing something beneficial for the environment will make you feel really good! We feel really good when we recycle or reuse our waste-paper & paper trimmings or when we reuse boxes & packaging.

How DAOSbiz Began

It all began when David and Oscar started helping a friend with a news magazine in their spare time. This exposed them to graphic design and the printing industry. The news magazine eventually became a full time job for Oscar. Then as a twist of fate, David's mother needed help with her small business. For fun, David and Oscar designed her logo, business cards, business forms, etc. They developed her business plan, marketing plan, website and newsletter. They redesigned her workspaces. They upgraded her computer system and computerized her bookkeeping. The new image, focus and efficiency were an astounding success. Her sales doubled the first year!

Not only were they good at this, but they thoroughly enjoyed it. So they combined their talents and passions to make marketing solutions and business services more feasible, affordable and available to small businesses in particular. 

Their first “real” job was a flyer for Sherwin Williams. They first worked out of a spare room at David’s condo. A year later they moved the business to a 150-square-foot office space in the back of a print shop. A year-and-a-half after that, they took the plunge and rented a large store-front and purchases a bunch of printing and bindery equipment and evolved into the one-stop marketing solutions shop that DAOSbiz is today
