About Us

Recipe That Puts You First/We are a CT Sign Printing Company

Blue Wave Printing was started in 1992 with shipping custom calendars across the country. Since then we have come a long way, offering many more products. Being located in Manchester, CT, right near the highway, makes us an easy stop for shipping and pick up. There are a lot of sign companies in the area, but we differentiate ourselves by offering large, direct-to-material, printing.

Our main goals are to save you headaches by printing as quickly as possible, providing customer service that only a mom and pop business could provide, offering overnight shipping options from UPS, and giving competitive pricing by researching our competitors. By aligning our goals to meet your needs, we can achieve customer satisfaction. We strive to get your product to you, in the right amount of time, at a price that makes you look good, and all the while knowing you've got a friend in the printing business.

Since 1992 we've been bringing you the best service and materials we can.

Customer Service

Our customers that have been with us over the years all know us by name. Becoming business partners is all about trust and we want to earn your trust by proving that we can print what you need and when you need it. The biggest part of our customer service is communication. We will reach out to you after your order is placed to make sure that all of the details are correct. If your order contains a custom print, as most do, we will send you a proof for you to approve before we print. After your order ships, we'll follow up with an e-mail to hear that everything went well and that your package was delivered safely. If anything is damaged in shipping, then this is the time we will discuss getting a new product out as quickly as possible.

Custom Printing

You are not limited to a set number of colors here; all of our products are full-color custom printed. We try to keep up with advertising trends by offering custom cut signage and banners. We have digital die cutting available on all of our materials that we offer, but there are so many possibilities that we have trouble listing them all on our website. Use our contact form to send a request for your custom project! Everyday we push to make sure that your products are printed on time and as quickly as possible. Tight deadlines might as well be our middle name because we will go above and beyond to meet them. Some products can be produced as quickly as the same day and some products will take a little bit longer. Communication is key when meeting deadlines because we proof back and forth to make sure you get the perfect product. Contact us to find out if we can meet your project's deadline!


When that product needs to be there, we offer overnight shipping through UPS. Overnight and Overnight Early A.M. are available in the shipping options during checkout. All overnight shipping is expensive, so it's best to let us know your deadline as soon as possible; sometimes expedited production is more cost effective. When we work together consistently, you can convey the urgency of a product before it becomes an emergency. If you've got time, stick with ground shipping which can take up to 6 business days across the U.S. The closer to CT you are, the quicker ground shipping will be. We also offer international shipping. Rates and times vary depending on product and delivery location, plus the package must go through customs which may take additional time. Please contact us with any shipping related questions.
