Manny and Jorge Hernandez

Owners

Brother’s Manny and Jorge Hernandez opened the doors of Solo Printing in 1985 with a vision of what they considered the ideal printing company, and now they can stake claim to being co-owners of one of the nation’s finest. The two brothers began their perspective careers working for other printing companies, but their entrepreneurial mindset and vision towards the future of the industry led them to go out on their own and start Solo Printing. “Why work for somebody else?” Manny Hernandez philosophizes. “We said to ourselves, let’s just go ahead and do it. We saw what was being done wrong at other print shops, and we didn’t want to make those same mistakes with our company. We were both very young, so we put our energy and our own way of thinking into the business.” In this short span of time, the company has grown to over a $65 million annual performer with 165 plus employees.
