Company History and
Thacker Graphics was established in Tacoma,
Washington in 1990 by Michael S. Thacker. Mr.
Thacker was born and raised in Tacoma’s
north end and attended local public schools
and University of Puget Sound. He began
his apprenticeship into the centuries old craft
of printing in 1976 and has extensive experience
in design, letterpress printing and offset lithography.
The dynamism of science and technology directly
impacts the printing industry and makes, for
printers, constant study of new trends a daily
process. Making use of new technologies as
well as preserving the integrity and legacy
of traditional printing is the foundation for
Thacker Graphics to serve the needs of the community,
both with and beyond the printed word.
Note From The Founder
Given a choice, would you rather buy an
apple from a vending machine or from another
person? “Depends on the vending machine,”
you might say. Likewise, when buying any product,
would you rather interact with technology, say,
the internet, or humanity? Do you prefer automated
telephone systems that ask questions “like”
a human? If so, then you’re not alone...yet.
Think about this. Many people, through the wonder
of technology, are daily choosing to buy products
anonymously, and, in effect are supporting other
people that they have never met and will never
Who’s leading who where, and for what?
Think about your power to choose. What kind
of community do you want to live in? What matters?...a
community of virtual vendors and anonymous consumers
or a community of real-world supporters and
