Staff Report

In those times when you need to make a quick photocopy or send a fax, it is important to have a place which is convenient and can quickly handle the job for you. In those times when you're looking to print a high quality brochure, a dozen copies of a report, or a complete set of blueprints for a construction project it is absolutely necessary that you go to a quality print shop. After 27 years of providing these services to the Española Valley, Accu Copy has proven that they are one of the highest quality print shops available in Northern New Mexico.

Ken Beesley and his wife Janette opened Accu Copy in 1990 with the vision of serving their customers with “prompt, uncompromising personal service. We believe that satisfied and returning customers is the way to build a business.” Accu Copy is in the business of making high volume copies, both color, black and white engineering reproduction, large format, color format, basic design work and finishing services. No matter the size of the job or the complexity this homegrown business has shown customers small and large throughout the state that they are the print shop to be trusted.

Located at 635 N. Riverside Drive, next to Wells Fargo Bank, Accu Copy is in the business of making the lives of their customers better. “We are constantly upgrading software, computers, machines and networking to serve you better. Our pledge is to give you the best and most cost effective customer service in northern New Mexico” store owner Ken Beesley explained. Today, Accu Copy is viewed as the leader of copy work in northern New Mexico, with government and offices relying on it for high volume work, engineering and architectural drawings.

The storefront has moved three times since it was originally opened and is now located in a large 3000 square foot space right on Riverside in the middle of town.

It isn't just businesses that have come to rely on Accu Copy. Many parents of newborn babies have printed their announcements in this Española shop. And high school and college graduates from throughout Northern New Mexico visit with Ken and Janette to design and print graduation announcements. Accu Copy’s ability to provide quick service and work directly with their customers to make sure they get exactly what they want is a major advantage over using the online print services or chain copy stores in Santa Fe and Albuquerque. Customers get to touch and feel the sample proofs before they actually go to print. There is nothing like knowing that the final product is exactly what you want. It's an advantage that the out of town and online businesses cannot match.

Not to mention, that the prices are very competitive and this season Accu Copy is offering a special promotion where all local residents who print their graduates announcements with Accu Copy will receive a 2’x4’ color banner, designed just for them and valued at $50, when they buy the “Grad-Pack” package customized to their student (see photo above).

Graduations are just a little over a month away so this is an opportunity for Accu Copy to share their quality services with newly minted high school and college grads. It’s also an opportunity for families of the graduates to take advantage of this special promotion (See below for more on this promotion).

Accu Copy owner Ken Beesley has another passion, beyond his business. Beesley is an artist who paints a variety of scenes from around northern New Mexico. Several samples of his work are on display in the store. For those visitors who love the art, Beesley has reproduced some of his more popular paintings as high-quality prints and they are for sale.

Accu Copy provides our community with prompt and personal service, delivered with a higher standard of excellence. The Española area is fortunate to have an excellent business like this in our community. Congratulations to Ken and Janette Beesley for growing your business here in our town.
