We believe in supporting the people of Michigan. To do this we need a strong local economy, with thriving local businesses. But how do these small businesses grow when they are forced to compete for advertising space against large companies?
That’s where we come in.
PDS Print & Digital Solutions – a division of HEARST Michigan Media Group – exists to serve these local businesses by helping them spread the word about their services or products. We print six local directories annually, reaching over 200,000 Michigan households. We also offer website design and online marketing tailored to each individual business we serve.
Why choose PDS?
We understand Michigan area businesses because we are one. Our employees live, work, shop, and play in Michigan. We are committed to seeing the community we live in prosper. Together with PDS, we believe that your local business can accomplish much more. Feel free to stop in and see us at our Big Rapids headquarters, give us a call, or shoot us an email. We look forward to meeting you.
