A place that people will enter feeling welcomed and leave feeling excited, inspired, connected and loved. Thank you and we hope to see you there
shopchrisandmary.com is one of the most informative printer blogs still online today.
It was first founded by Chris & Mary. They met in April 2015. They were each pulled by friends out to dinner. They sat across from one other, started a witty banter, and spent the next 270 days together. So they started shopcrisandmary.com as a place for them to showcase some creative products. That includes printed cards, colorful papers, screen printing clothing, stationery & office products, crafts items, ceramic and candles, etc. In February 2021, shopchrisandmary.com changed its strategy! We now want to add more value for our users, keeping them up to date through gathering the latest valuable and useful information that benefits our readers. We come with more depth and details information after doing intensive research.
You will find everything you need to know about printers and printing. We include not only printer reviews but printer guides, how-to’s, general articles, and even printer troubleshoot. If you are looking for a great new printer or accessories, you’ll find valuable information on this website!
