Downtown Printer Remains Open
Contrary to information published in the Sept. 12 issue of The News that a printer opposite City Hall has closed his doors, the building in which Baker Graphics is located is up for sale but the business itself is open and will remain in operation.

Don Baker recently retired and sold the business at 6718 Third Street to his employee, Ed Blomdahl, who plans to rename it Riverbank Printing and stay in business at that location as long as possible.

One of the oldest buildings in the downtown, it was constructed in 1917 and at one time was home to The Riverbank News, Blomdahl added.

He himself worked for Baker for 23 years and the other employee, Eliseo Contreras, who is staying on with him is also approaching 20 years of employment there.

The business prints posters, business cards, calendars, envelopes, tickets and practically anything up to a maximum size of 19 by 25 inches and in four colors, said Blomdahl.

On Friday he was just finishing the run on a poster for Stanislaus State University aimed at drawing more recruits for its music department.
