About You

I could spout on and on about myself, but honestly who wants to hear about me. Let's talk about you. And if you really want to know about me, there's a blurb somewhere down below.

You like high quality actionable content

No fluffy, feel-good articles here.

You know those articles that give you “ideas on marketing your business”. There’s a short paragraph explaining the idea. And that’s it – they’re done. You’re left holding the bag. Wondering – ok, where do I go from here?

Then what do you do? You get your ass back to work. And pretty soon, you’ve forgotten all about those awesome ideas.

We only bring you in-depth articles and guides on solving the challenges you’ll face in this industry.

We want to present you ideas, explain away your questions, show you the benefit, and then give you steps on how to implement that idea.

Because ideas by themselves worthless. You have to take action on those ideas to achieve your goals. And we want to leave you with absolutely 0 excuses as to why you shouldn’t take action right away – even if it’s just a small step.

You don't like advertising

This site will always remain free from industry sponsors. No advertisements disguised as how-to articles. No banner ads for the latest and greatest printer to enter the market.

If I recommend something, it’s because I’ve done it or used it or someone I trust has used it. Not because someone else is paying for that recommendation.

You are (and forever will be) the customer here. The sign shop owner. The production manager. The guy (or gal) printing shirts in their garage. The printer who started 20+ years ago with a 1 color press and a video tape on how to run it.

My story

I’m Bryant Gillespie, creator of Ink Sauce.

My goal here is to help you create a better business. One that fits your goals and lifestyle. One that you control, instead of it controlling you.

If you are interested in…

  • finding new customers for your business.
  • or learning how to price your work to hit your goal.
  • or just looking for resources to help you grow.

Then you are in the right place friend.

Why should you listen to me?

Because I’ve been in your shoes. I know your challenges. I’ve lived them.

For 5 years – I helped manage a growing print and sign shop. We struggled with all the growing pains that comes with building a successful (and lasting) shop.

We worked ourselves into the dirt. 40-50-60 hours a week – just trying to keep up with all the work that needed to be done.

For the last 3+ years, I’ve been helping shops just like yours improve their businesses with shop management software.

I’ve worked directly with 100s of shops. I’ve managed a team of industry experts who’ve worked directly with 100s more. And I’ve surveyed 1,000s of shops to find out your goals, your problems, and what keeps you up at night.

Along the way – I’ve made tons of mistakes. Learned the hard way. But I’ve also learned a ton about what works and what doesn’t.

I want to share what I know you with. To help you avoid those mistakes I made. To help you shortcut some of those very painful lessons.
