Exciting News: Despins Printing and Graphics Acquires Three Dog Marketing.

As many of you may have heard (because it was all over the headlines) our very own Nancy Sanders was recently named the DIRECTOR of the Maricopa Small Business Development Center. Kristin and Nancy have spent the last four years working with the SBDC and now Nancy is bringing her talent and wisdom to a new leadership level.

What you may not have heard, Three Dog Marketing has been acquired byDespins Printing in North Scottsdale.  Despins is a printing, graphic design and large scale printing shop that has served business owners for over 30 years. Three Dog Marketing and Despins have worked closely on several large successful projects in the past. The combination of strategic marketing and quality graphics and printing meant that projects where cohesive and easier for clients.  Most importantly Despins and Three Dog marketing shared the same values of community, empowering small business owners and creating tools that helped clients make more money.

Moving forward, the two organizations will  become Splash 

Marketing. That means that all of the great insights, tools and strategies that you are used to seeing from Three Dog Marketing are combined with the printing and graphic resources you need to put those tools into action.

Plus, Kristin Slice is joining the Splash Marketing team. Kristin will continue to host her weekly podcast Tales of Small Business and will now be providing one on one consulting, custom marketing and sales campaigns to Splash Marketing clients. Kristin is also creating new content and tools to continue to support and empower small business owners. Which means that her easy going humor and clever dog puns are not going away!
