In 1997 as I was finishing the details of my new guide and dive map of Santa Catalina Island I began to search for a local print shop to print the map on synthetic paper. At the time printing on synthetic paper was a relatively unknown and daunting task for most print shops. A fortunate tip led me to Pacific West Litho in Anaheim, California.

In the upcoming months Pacific West Litho not only produced 10,000 beautiful copies of my new Catalina map, but they also printed new editions of several Franko trail maps. The printing quality was excellent, and I appreciated the personable service rendered so much that ever since that 1997 start Pacific West Litho has printed every major Franko Maps product.

Pacific West Litho has been so successful in meeting my printing challenges and timely needs that I regard them as an integral part of my business team. With every new project and every new edition of existing Franko maps I look forward to working with Pacific West Litho.

My congratulations to Pacific West Litho owner Steve Chou for his fabulous staff. I greatly appreciate the true expertise on exhibit in every part of his company. I recommend anyone with special printing needs like mine to make Pacific West Litho a part of their team too.
