“Stop thinking outside the box; there is no box”. This is Oluyomi Ojo’s quote, the founder of Printivo, whilst reflecting on not allowing his friend’s pessimism stop his print company idea.
Oluyomi’s idea was not an overnight thought. Even before his university school days, he started with making and selling handmade cards, then moved on to T-shirt printing, graphic design and general printing. In 2007, he founded Urbanbaze, an agency that specializes in branding and advertising. But not even the digital trend would take printing from Oluyomi. Instead of giving up his passion, he made the online digital system work for him.
Printivo was started in January 2014. This was a time when most print forms were going digital. However, Oluyomi took to digitizing print by making it an online platform. Thanks to Printivo, you can get your prints delivered to your home or office doorstep in just three steps.
