direction tour marketing + promotion


After noticing an untapped niche in the printing market, we started direction printworks in 2009 out of our River North office in order to fill that void.  Providing quality, low costs for our clients, our printworks division specializes in printing for Chicago's vibrant arts/performance/entertainment community, in addition to clients nationwide.

Larger print companies usually have minimum orders, longer turnaround times, and shipping costs. Being DIY musicians and artists, we understand the need for high quality printed media at affordable rates provided in a timely fashion. Over the past few years, we've grown our client base to many of Chicago's theaters, producers, venues, and promoters.  Need 25 posters?  We can knock that out in the same day.  Contact us for a quote today!
