Meet The Team


Richie is the team lead at Hometown Printing. He’s a seasoned creative professional with years of experience in publishing, design, photography, and marketing. Having worked in the industry for what feels like forever, Richie is a master of his craft and brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the table.

When he’s not helping clients elevate their marketing strategies, Richie enjoys casting a line while fishing, tending to his garden, or cruising around in his antique mustang. With his love for the outdoors and a strong commitment to his craft, Richie is a true asset to our team and we’re lucky to have him on board.


Print marketing, digital marketing, photography… Cal loves all of it. Her career in marketing started in the early 2000’s working for BMW and then Yamaha Motor Canada. There Cal discovered her passion for effective communication by building skills in copywriting, print marketing and photography.

In 2021, she went back to school and completed a Digital Marketing certificate program at York University, and fell in love with all things SEO, email marketing and PPC advertising.

When not working on marketing campaigns, Cal enjoys baking, hanging out with her family and their two, goofy Great Danes – Penny & Oscar.


Amber is our talented graphic designer and photographer who brings a creative flair to the team. She loves the challenge of communicating through design and strives to deliver projects that look great but also convey the message effectively.

Whether she’s designing a logo, capturing a moment through her camera lens, or brainstorming with the team, she brings a unique perspective and a fresh approach to every project.

When she’s not immersed in her work, Amber can be found exploring the great outdoors, trying out new recipes, or indulging in her love of art and culture.

Oscar The Great Dane

You may have seen Oscar greet you at the door, as he’s one of our adorable mascots.

Oscar is the ultimate foodie, treat connoisseur, and outdoor enthusiast all rolled into one adorable Great Dane!

This big softie prefers the couch or a comfy chair over the hard ground and has a major drool factor, but don’t worry, his love for hugs more than makes up for it.

When he’s not greeting customers, he can be found begging the staff for pets, treats or to throw his ball for him.

Penny the great dane

Penny The Great Dane

This is our sweet Penny, the petite but mighty Great Dane with a love for apples and personal space!

Unlike her drooly brother Oscar, Penny prefers to keep it clean and tidy. She’s not big on hugs but has plenty to say and isn’t shy about expressing herself through her signature bark. She prefers if you just ignore her when you come in. If she’s feeling social, she’ll come over to say hello.

Follow us on Instagram to see more of Penny and Oscar on their apple-fueled adventures.
