Kelly Bushnell said that what sets Ship & Print Store apart from competitors are the services it offers.
“We have mailboxes, and we have lockers for rent and I’m a notary; then we have all kinds of printing services,” said Kelly, who with Leonard Bushnell owns the newly-opened store at 755 W. Washington St.
Ship & Print Store opened about two months ago. According to Bushnell, the company offers free packing, free shredding for up to five pounds, bookbinding, funny gifts about seniors, and more.
The services that have been used the most so far are copies, notaries and a few print jobs.
Bushnell said they chose to open their business in Sequim because Office Depot shut down and there weren’t many other local copy places. She said the ones that are open have different hours.
“The opportunity [and] space for business came available,” she said.
Bushnell was born and raised in the Port Angeles and Sequim area and grew up doing the Walk for Cancer and different walk-athons to raise money.
“I like the smallness of it,” she said.
Before owning the Ship & Print Store, Bushnell worked at Pen-Print for several years and then worked as the mailbox manager at the UPS store about five years ago.
As for the future of the Ship & Print Store, Bushnell said she she hopes the business will get busier and the store can be successful.
“Hopefully one day, one of my grandkids will come and work for me and maybe buy the business from me,” she said.
