FOR THE LOVE OF PRINTS (FTLP)
is a homegrown, lifestyle brand and boutique print shop owned and operated by GRUPPO GRAFICA PRINTERS based in Davao City, Philippines. A sister company of Midtown Printing Co. Inc., Gruppo Grafica Printers was established by paper passionista, print, photography and craft enthusiast, Sarah Claudio on November 2008. It was at a small corner inside Midtown’s sales office in Bonifacio Street where the company started selling personalized stationery and custom invitations. To reach more customers, FTLP joined bazaars and established its first online presence through Multiply. It’s ready-made stationery line was distributed in select book store chains (Fully Booked and National Bookstore) and destination boutiques in Metro Manila and Davao City. In 2011, FTLP’s retail presence strengthened when it opened its first store in Abreeza Ayala Mall. The 2nd branch opened in 2014 in Lenel Bldg. Robinsons Highlands C.P. Garcia Highway Buhangin, Davao City. From custom invitations and personalized stationery, FTLP expanded its lifestyle product range to photobooks, party tokens, boxes and home accessories.
