Forward Printing: About Us Interested in receiving an estimate now? Please click here and fill out this simple form - we will send you an estimate within 24 hours. Forward Printing is comprised of owners Dan Corcoran and Dan Holzer, our production manager Kevin Corcoran, our production assistant Alejandro "La Roca" Monroy, and a couple of part-time hourly employees. Dan Corcoran is a skilled graphic artist with a deep understanding of the technical and artistic details of design, internet search engine optimization, and production. Dan C built this website, which is a great representation of his skills. Dan Holzer handles sales, initial customer contacts, bookkeeping, accounting, and general business organization. Dan H answers your online estimate requests and all mail sent to Dan and Dan met while working at Semifreddi's Bakery in a management capacity. They worked together for 6 years there, during which time they formed a close friendship and realized just how well each of their skills complement each other, and how well they could compliment each other in their own business environment. It was while working at Semifreddi's, over some beers in a backyard after work one day, when the idea of FORWARD PRINTING came about. Kevin Corcoran is the master of production with great attention to details and efficiencies. Kevin works closely with Dan and Dan managing the shop and handling all of production with La Roca. Alejandro Monroy is Kevin's assistant in the shop. Alejandro was also an employee at Semifreddi's Bakery for 7 years, working as a driver for Dan and Dan. When they realized that Alejandro might be looking for a change, it was what is called a "no brainer" to hire him. We call him "La Roca, " which means "The Rock, " a name he lives up to. Not only is he strong as all get out, he is one of the most reliable, good natured, hard working, well rounded employees a company could ever wish for. He is The Rock because he takes great care of his happy family, and he is the pastor and literally, The Rock, of Latin American Church in Christ in San Leandro, California. As you can see from these brief descriptions, we are more than just a regular business, we are a close family. When we say "family" we mean it. We are in this until the end. We work very hard together to make sure that our customers are happy and receive the quality and service they desire and that we strive for. Forward Printing is proud to have won first place in the Manual Screen Printing category in the Impressions 2008 Awards for the second year in a row for our company promo shirt, called "The Chameleon, " named after our first manual screen printing press. Forward Printing is proud to have won first place in the Manual Screen Printing category in the Impressions 2007 Awards for the first entry we ever submitted, our company promo shirt, called "The Forward Chain These awards are no joke and are a testament to the quality and ingenuity that we produce. The awards are issued by the leading industry publication ( Impressions Magazine ) and trade shows ( Imprinted Sportswear Shows - ISS ) and are judged by highly acclaimed industry veterans and professionals. California-based screen printer rises above local competition by offering top-quality printing, including foil and waterbase, for trendy niches. It takes more than just great printing skills for a decorator with only a six-color manual press to attract customers from across the country seeking hip, edgy prints, including foil, discharge, and water-based work. It also takes some serious marketing and Internet savvy and the masterminds behind Forward Printing, Oakland, Calif., have that in spades. Dan Corcoran and Dan Holzer, general partners for the four-year-old company, have a huge, diverse client list that includes clothing designers, retailers, schools, churches, and bands. Last year, the shop did $310, 000 in sales, and they're targeting $500, 000 in sales this year' and that
