Since opening Insty-Prints Downtown Lansing in November of 1984, Mike and Annette Bruce have been committed to not only assisting their customers, but also being active members of their community.

Though their business is based in Lansing, the Bruces often find a way to lend a hand in their hometown of Charlotte. Mike and Annette and their daughter, Jennifer, have been taking care of customers throughout the greater Lansing area for the last 34 years. They and their family give back, not only through their service at Insty-Prints Downtown, but also through their actions in the community.

Annette, who manages the bookkeeping, is an active volunteer with the women’s auxiliary and The Gift basket at Hayes Green Beach Memorial Hospital. Jennifer Berkompas manages the store in addition to raising two sons. Mike has served on the Charlotte Public Schools Board of Education for 24 years. He is a member of the Charlotte Optimist Club, and sits on the Relevant Academy of Eaton County Board of Directors and the Charlotte Public Schools Education Foundation. All are active members of First Congregational Church in Charlotte.

Insty-Prints is a family operated, full service printing and copying business. Insty-Prints Downtown, a franchise business, specializes in offset printing, digital color and black and white copying, complete design and typesetting. They offer other services as well, including laminating, faxing, blue print copying, posters and banners. Insty-Prints can also provide promotional items to meet any budget.

“Insty-Prints prides itself on quality and providing award-winning customer service,” Mike said. “Why go anywhere else for all your printing and copying needs.”
