Hello! and Welcome
…to our new website. We try to stay current just like we encourage our customers to do, so we
thought it was time to follow our own advice. This has been a very serious labor of love and
frustration over many, many months. For our customers’ websites, we partner with some
outstanding web design firms. They do the heavy lifting while we drive, making sure our
customers’ expectations are not only met, but exceeded.
To better understand the nuts and bolts of the process from the development side, this site was
built without knowing any coding (hence the frustration). Why torture ourselves?? To better
understand possible hurdles, which would ultimately benefit our website clientele.

Medical Practice Front Office
In the early years it was superbills, statements, filing products like charts, dividers, and year bands that were the backbone of our company. We provided business cards, letterhead and envelopes, but marketing products were limited.
HIPAA is Coming!!
With so many concerns about HIPAA, we invented a simple yet effective product for the check-in area for one of our larger customers at their request. It was very well received, so much so that we were encouraged to patent the “method of use”. We were awarded a few patents.
EMR is on the Horizon
We knew it was coming for a number of years. To see all of the filing products business go away was still a gut check, forcing us to regroup. We had dabbled with promotional products already, so we decided it was time to become a full-fledged promo products distributor and add that to our product offering. And it was time to change our name from Shandy Graphics to Shandy Creative Solutions.
As our business evolved, we had to evolve personally. Partnering with a variety of web design companies and using our skills for project management was a logical step. We already had plenty of experience managing a variety of marketing related printing projects, so that was one of the final pieces to the puzzle in helping medical practices AND other business look at the total sum of their marketing efforts.
