While serving in the U.S. Army in the Vietnam War, Ron Perry learned a craftsmanship that would stay true to him for many years to come. After working for numerous companies in the Southeast, Ron had a vision to bring his desire for quality printing combined with excellent service to create satisfied customers. Table Rock Printers was founded by Ron Perry in 1986. He started working out of his basement just outside of Morganton. After one year of hard work, he built a loyal customer base and moved his business to downtown Morganton in 1987. With this move and the additional space, he was able to provide additional services that he was being requested to supply.
Jack Perry, Ron’s son began working part time with Table Rock Printers while in college. Jack has been at Table Rock Printers as a full time employee since 1990. Ron believed to know the business, Jack needed to learn all parts from the ground up. He started emptying trash cans and working in the bindery area and has continued to learn and evolve with the business. Jack has been in charge of the graphic design and sales for Table Rock since 2000.
Jay Perry, Ron’s youngest son has also worked at Table Rock Printers. After graduating from Appalachian State in 1996, Jay worked in Pre Press for 12 years before taking a position as at McDowell Tech Community College. He is currently the Instructor and Advisor of the Advertising and Graphic Design Program. Jay continues to stay close with the business and collaborates on projects from time to time.
In 2018, Ron retired and sold ownership to Jack. Table Rock is still conveniently located in Downtown Morganton at the same location it has been since 1987. Table Rock Printers continues to have a growing business while serving the public under the same principles of hard work and excellent customer service that it was founded on in 1986.
Table Rock Printers is a true family business. They continue to do the things that needs to be done to meet that unbelievable deadline or give advice on how their services will best help the client. They do that because their business has been a part of Burke County for 31 years and will continue to serve this community for years to come.
We take pride in our work and our company, because it is more than “just a job.” It’s our life!
