SABP Reprographics Celebrates 70 years in Business!

SABP Reprographics celebrates 70 years in business in Orange County






SABP Reprographics, originally known as Santa Ana Blue Print, was established in 1946 in downtown Santa Ana.  The same year that President Harry S. Truman Officially proclaimed the End of World War II.

SABP is the oldest and one of the few remaining privately family owned and woman operated Reprographics Companies in Orange County. The sole owner Colleen Howes has obtained certification as a DBE (Disadvantage Business Enterprise) from the Department of Transportation and as a WBE & WOSB (Woman Business Enterprise) by the Public Utilities Commission and the Women’s Business Enterprise Council.

Santa Ana Blue Print has been employing families through 12 wars, 10 economic recessions and has seen 13 presidents elected to office.  We have not only survived the many economic downturns, but 2016 will be the most profitable year in the history of the company! Our success is due to our loyal hard working staff!
