Who We Are

Marlee Malpiedi

Hello, I’m Alice DeGeorge. I am the owner and head graphic designer of Presque Isle Printing Services. After several years of working in the print industry, I noticed that some key customers’ needs were not being met. Namely, small or start-up companies, and customers that had small printing jobs that needed done quickly and economically.


Small Customers were left to fend for themselves and at the mercy of the big box printing emporiums. Many times, smaller customers didn’t get the assistance that they needed, and consequently were disappointed with the results. I started Presque Isle Printing Services to meet the needs of the small business and individual customers with the goal of providing the best design and printing services no matter what the size of the job.

Sara Anderson

Although born and raised in Erie, Melissa Shimek has considered Cleveland, Chicago, and NYC as surrogate cities. She is a second-generation graphic artist with over three decades worth of published freelance material spanning magazine illustrations, serial comics, band posters, album covers, t-shirt designs, and ad work. Melissa earned a Liberal Arts degree from Penn State, having also studied both Fine Arts Painting and Business Advertising on a university level. She enjoys collecting visual references like a crow collects shiny objects. When not working on her most recent projects, she can be found lingering in museums, libraries, music venues, record stores, gardens, or craft stores with her two engaging daughters. Melissa is a visual thinker who can help you translate ideas into graphics for all your various needs.
