A BIT OF HISTORY
"If we don't look after
our customers, someone else will."
The guiding philosophy of Cas Werner's printing business in
Katy may not be totally original. However, it is steeped in family tradition
that her Dad brought from their native roots in the United Kingdom to their new
business home in Katy many years ago.
It's a particularly poignant time for Cas who
just recently lost her father and business mentor. "It is at times like this
that one really focuses on values. In terms of running a business, he defined
for us a simple-sounding goal that takes an incredible amount of dedication to
actually achieve," she said.
Her dad founded Kenrise Printers in Katy in
1985. The name was changed to CAS Graphics in 1995 when Cas took over the
business. The address has moved "around the corner" to a more spacious setting;
and the sophistication of the equipment has progressed dramatically from the
time that his health prompted her Dad to retire and sell the business to Cas.
CAS Graphics' customer base covers the gamut
of printing demands ranging from simple leaflets and business cards to complex,
intricate and demanding full-color products.
CAS Graphics over the years has
expanded its business services by introducing direct mail services, wide format and full color on-demand printing to
"Through modernization of equipment, CAS
Graphics can help a business or individual target direct mail anywhere in the
United States. We can organize your mail to reach a neighborhood or an entire
community," she said.
Cas notes that her company can provide a full
service including taking the mail to the U.S. Post Office. "If a client already
has printed material designed for mailing, it is highly likely that we'll be
able to use our technology to process it for mailing," she said.
What are the keys to "taking care of our
customers"? "It's taking the time to produce a quality project in a fully
professional way on the timeline that you promise the customer," Cas says. "And
it is charging a fair and competitive price for that service."
Today, after ten years, C&S has grown to 3 presses and 6 employees. We have recently installed a Heidelberg GTO 4-color press and are continually updating printing and computer equipment to best service the printing needs of the community.
