Carl and Moveline Hartness began the business in 1948 building a strong foundation locally as a trusted member of the community. Ted and Ruth Hartness then purchased and ran the business starting in 1973. In that time, Ted took on a leadership role in Weatherford by joining and becoming a prominent member of local clubs and organizations. In 2005, Ted and Ruth's daughter Lori and her husband Dwayne Bennett took the reins of the business. Lori immediately began following in her father's footsteps locally by joining a wide range of organizations and building lasting relationships. Shortly thereafter, Ted sadly passed after a long battle with cancer and will be forever missed by his family and the wonderful community here in Weatherford. Lori and Dwayne have done everything in their power to ensure that the future for Hartness will be as bright as its past and that the legacy the generations before them worked hard to build is not lost. They are committed to providing quality service to the community and believe that a reputation as an honest and reliable business with consistent service is the recipe for success. They are now able to offer more services to their customers while still maintaining a hometown vibe and caring for the customers who have kept them around for so long, as well as new ones.
If you haven't stopped by the new building yet, please do...We have added equipment, capabilities and lots of room to create your one of a kind print pieces. Thanks for all your years of loyalty to us!
