Chris Walker and Nancy Dron bring unique skills and creativity to their new business

New local business will ‘Do More’ for you

Business community newcomers Nancy Dron and Chris Walker opened the doors to Do-More Promotional Ltd. and Scrapbook Magic in March 2015.

Williams Lake business community newcomers Nancy Dron and Chris Walker opened the doors to Do-More Promotional Ltd. and Scrapbook Magic in March 2015, and continue to welcome a growing number of customers looking for unique gifts and promotional items.

The husband and wife team handles four basic types of projects.

One is trophies, awards, plaques and engraving gifts and jewelry.

Another is clothing that can be personalized by embroidery, silk screening, heat transfers and dye sublimation.

They said that sublimation can also be done on porcelain, glass, magnets, metal and lots of promotional items, including dash plaques for vehicles.

“We also do custom signs and decals, bumper stickers and banners; we do sandwich boards, vehicle signs, backlit signs, di-bond signs and coroplast,” Walker explained. “And we do promotional items, such as travel mugs, pens, key chains and mugs — anything that you want to promote.”

Dron added that most of the work is done on site.

“Sometimes our customers come in with a logo they want, and some want us to help design them something; sometimes they come in with an idea, and we help them create what they want,” she said.

Do-More will handle everything from gifts for all your employees to a single gift for your mom for Mother’s Day, and from shirts for a big sports team to a single hoodie. They said they can do a set of engraved glass beer mugs for a wedding party, for example, or a pile of medals for a sporting event.

Chris, a volunteer firefighter, explained that he ran a related business when they were still in Saskatchewan, and once they moved to Williams Lake most of the equipment used at Do-More Promotions was just stored in their basement.

Scrapbook Magic is the result of a family business that moved with them from Saskatchewan.

“We felt there was a bit of a void in these services and wanted to fill it,” Dron, a part-time paramedic with B.C. Ambulance, continued.

“Most of what we do has a really fast turnover — sometimes done that same day or overnight if we have it in stock, and if the design isn’t complicated; we have pre-made transfers or you can make your own.”

She added that they can help you create unique gifts and items for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, Christmas parties, retirements, reunions, award ceremonies and much more.

One recent successful project at Do-More was dash plaques for the Laker’s Car Club; 50 big and 225 small ones.

“This is a way to make a gift truly unique; we pride ourselves on helping you create a perfect gift,” she said. “We have a comfortable sitting area where we can sit together and go through books and create exactly what you want.”

She added that getting your promotional items locally is an enormous benefit.

“You don’t pay shipping and handling, your phone calls and messages are always returned promptly and we are right here to make sure it’s done right and that you’re happy with it — happy with the price, the quality and the service,” she said.

“We both like to help people — that’s why she’s a paramedic and I’m a firefighter,” Walker noted. “We get huge enjoyment by seeing the smiles on people’s faces when they see what we’ve done for them.”

“I want people to know that someone gave 110 per cent to get them what they need,” Dron noted. “Honesty is huge, too; if we can’t do it I will always tell people who in town can.”

She said that you have to give people a reason to shop local.

“If your prices are too high people will go somewhere else; if your service is bad people will go somewhere else; if they feel that you haven’t given them what they need, or your quality isn’t good, they will go somewhere else.

“We work face to face with our customers. Sometimes it takes meeting a few times to make sure they get what they want. “

“We’re more than an image on a computer or a voice on an answering machine. We’re face-to-face and we’re here to help you,” she said.

“We’ll help you say what you want to say.”
