Our love of creativity is the stuff stories are made of.

Welcome to The Print Refinery @ Vernon Hills

When one door closes, another opens.

The fall of 2012 was a time of dramatic change in the photo world where more images were being captured on smartphones in one year than on cameras in the ten years prior.  On the retail scene, a nationwide photo chain was putting the wrap on over 100 years in business while a small team of inspired dreamers picked up the banner and took off with it.  That team became the core of The Print Refinery™ at Click Incorporated and we still fly that flag proudly today.  What made us think we could succeed where others in the industry were failing? It’s simple: we understood then, as we do today, that preservation of your memories is important and that you want options on how to display them, how to store them and how to share them.  You want to pass your story on to future generations and we are the local experts that can help you do it.  We’re also more than just photo specialists – we print anything on everything.  It’s through our experience that we can also support your business’s printing and graphics needs.

The Print Refinery™ at Click Incorporated loves being part of the vibrant, Lake County, Illinois community – especially connecting with and supporting our clients.  Every project that walks through our door is an opportunity to collaborate on a personal level.  We are creative storytellers and educators, design experts and artistic consultants, and we have a knack for bringing your ideas to life.

Our love of creativity is the stuff stories are made of.

Welcome to The Print Refinery.

As kids, we found inspiration in the arts and learned to appreciate the vibrancy we encountered in our everyday lives. And as adults, we continue to find joy not only in experimenting with our own imaginative ideas but in helping others do the same.

Growing up, we wanted to learn and grow, be challenged and inspired, have our questions answered and teach others the tricks we picked up along the way. One of the things we’ve discovered is that everyone has a creative talent – even if they don’t know it yet – and we’ve got a knack for bringing that artistic edge to life. It was with this in mind that we opened the doors of The Print Refinery – a modern and interactive hub buzzing with ingenuity.

The Print Refinery thrives on face-to-face interaction to drive conversation, collaboration and education. This is the place where you meet up with friends, spend the afternoon, linger over a new project or idea, get professional help if you need it, experiment with hi-tech solutions, share stories with other passionate locals, explore innovative ways to memorialize your imagery and focus on the finer details in life.  Welcome to our community.
