Dennis Bolton Enterprises, Inc. was established 1971 in Van Nuys, CA, the heart of the San Fernando Valley. A small photography studio operating in a back section of a copy store. Dennis Bolton became well known for his photography, mostly headshots.
Soon after, he would work and eventually take over the copy store adding team members and increasing his operation to 725 square feet. With Offset printing and Photocopies as additional services, Dennis would again expand into neighboring retail locations capturing 2,900 square feet. With extra space, the opportunity for further services surfaced, Such as Office Supplies, which became an instant success becoming one of the leading office supply stores in the San Fernando Valley.
During the 1980s with increase in service, production, and equipment, Dennis was required to locate a more suitable retail operation and add more team members. In 1993 Staples® opened its doors across the street, and DBE decided it was time to amend its business structure. Omitting office supplies, Printing and Advertising became the main focus. With a new business plan came a new location and a larger facility.
Twenty-three years later we are still in our current home. Our employees on average have been with us for over twenty years. Now in our forty-fifth year Dennis Bolton Enterprises, Inc. still offers its original “a copy for a nickel” for its reflective black on white prints. We’ve been able to build an excellent reputation with great clientele. Continuously working hard in supplying our customers with solutions to their challenges has allowed our company to further grow into other markets closely associated with the printing industry.

We had been using DBE forever! The best printing shop in SF Valley.

The service and quality here was outstanding. I had a small batch printing job of funeral programs that needed a quick turnaround. The program had quite a few photos on it and was an odd size. Not only was the print quality from their shop far superior to other shops I had struggled with earlier, they also cut and folded them, a service that wasn't offered from other places. The end product looked incredibly professional and the pricing was competitive.
I just wanted to thank Jay and the team for handling my job with the utmost care and ease during a stressful time. You guys have my business for anymore print jobs I need done. Thanks again.
The best customer service you’ll ever find and couldn’t be happier with the end result. When you don’t know exactly what you want in any printing project, they will offer you suggestions and ideas and work it through until you are totally satisfied. I’m a very happy customer of DBE.
This is the best print shop in LA. They focus on quality, competitive pricing, and customer service! Come here before you go anywhere else!!
Just came from this printing company and received the most helpful and friendly service from Nate. I came in last minute to ask about printing something on some very tiny stickers for my son’s up coming wedding and Nate did a good job accommodating me. I’ve driven past this printer shop for years and wondered about their work. Now they truly get a 5 star for me for the personal service I received.
We have gone here for many years. The service is wonderful and the prices can’t be beat! Highly recommended!
I go in here about every other day to get copies. They’re pretty up to date on all their tech stuff and I have to say I’ve compared my copies of my drawings and mattes against guys at school who get it done elsewhere, I gotta say I like what I have. Emmmm.. what else.. as far as pricing goes I usually pay off my tab with the change in my cigarette ashtray.
I’ve been coming to DBE for over 10 years, they have by far the best service, and prices…
This place is amazing. Always professional and timely. We have been coming here for a few years and highly recommend them. They have a fantastic team to help with all your print needs.

I love this place. When you need to print something quick when you have no printer, just go here. This place has been a staple for me while being a broke college student. At 5 cents per black and white page, you can’t go wrong. I even got a pen with my face printed on there for the hell of it.
It’s nice to see a place that actually takes pride in their work. They provide great quality work at a fair price. They will help you design what you need. They truly get customer service and their pricing is great.
I have so many great things to say about Dennis Bolton Enterprises! First off GREAT quality in all prints, great prices. Second the service is absolutely wonderful!! So delightful every time I come in. Third Dennis is such a gentlemen and such a wonderful presence. Always carries my prints to my car (being a gentlemen, cause I am lady) Which is very rare in any business owner nowadays. I would recommend them anytime. We do big prints and big files for printing, never an issue and they always keep us up to date..
I get all my copies made for school here, when ever i have a report due or a last min project wither its a poster or large portfolio copies they can help me out no matter my deadline! lol great service and great prices! =)
I have a lot of small batch stuff printed, and I will go nowhere else. After widespread price comparisons, I used them for work projects, business cards, wedding invitation inserts and other assorted paper goods. Products consistently turned out exactly right, and they went above and beyond to make my life easier- free collation and folding on you programs, cutting and folding door hang tags, and always with quick turnaround to proof (and always so accommodating of my pickiness). I normally work with Robert, but have always gotten prompt and polite service.
May sound like a commercial, but it’s just facts. After they super-rushed a small but complex multipart order for me over the weekend (no rush charge!), I realized that they really are that awesome, and that in a city where so many places are slow and sloppy, I should tell people. So I am. #themoreyouknow
Been using them for years and always totally satisfied. They printed several prayer books for our synagogue – totally professional, and helpful. Prices couldn’t be fairer.
Prices are great, service is awesome, quality is excellent.. have been coming here since I was 14, will not go anywhere else for my printing needs. Love it!!
Absolutely the best printer I’ve ever encountered. Terrific customer service with wonderful follow up skills by Steve and fantastic quality. They are quite simply … the very BEST
This place is AMAZING. I took a few professional photos to Staples to try to make a big spiral Lookbook for my clothing line. The pictures were probably the size of half a poster. They told me they wouldn’t be able to do it because it was too big, without even thinking twice about it. I looked up places nearby and Dennis Bolton Enterprises was conveniently across the street. When I told them what I wanted to do with my photos they thought of every way possible to make it happen. They went out of their way to melt the ends of two spirals together to connect them and make it long enough for the book. Not only that but I had a variety of sizes and colors to choose from. They even made me a beautiful cover, lamented it, and put a thinker paper in the back so the pictures wouldn’t bend get ruined. It came out SO GOOD in a really short period of time. By far the best costumer service I have EVER experienced. I am so happy I stumbled across them. They are so creative and came up with every solution to help my idea come to life. I would definitely recommend them to anyone. I really wish I was able to attach a picture to really show everyone how amazing their work came out. Thank you so much for all your hard work.
We used DBE for a rather large print job, and were impressed by their professionalism and the quality of their work. Steve Fitzgerald was our contact there, and he was extremely good about following up on our project and keeping us updated every step of the way. They went above and beyond, and even helped us find a contractor for a related job. We were extremely happy with their service and look forward to working with them again. -The Academy of Music and Fine Arts
Are you kidding, DBE is THE BEST print shop in the SF Valley by far. They have it all, the best high tech equipment, customer service always with a smile ( I mean who else gives you a smile now a days! – oh and coffee too!) they are great I recommend them to my clients all the time.
Dennis Bolton has been our vendor for a number of years. I’m very happy with their products and services, and their prices. Ozzie has been my contact and he performs beyond my expectations every time. (So does Steve.) My emails and messages are always returned promptly and my orders are delivered on time even in emergency situations. I’ll remain a loyal customer and I highly recommend them.
5 STARS! DBE is the best you’ll find. Professional, prompt service with the best recommendations to help you save time and money.
