For the third year in a row, Graphics and More—a Rancho Cordova, CA novelties, recognition, and multiple accessories company —has landed on Inc. Magazine’s annual list of America’s fastest-growing private companies.
The Sacramento based e-tailer and print-on-demand manufacturer makes and sells more than one million products that include gifts, souvenirs, tech accessories, jewelry, home goods, and automotive items. They rank in the top 1,000 sellers on the Amazon Marketplace.
"Making the Inc. 5000 list for the third year in a row is proof that entrepreneurship is alive and well in America,” said David Nielsen, co-founder and CEO of Graphics and More. Nielsen had started a small eBay business in his garage that, with co-founder Heather Dykes, has experienced significant growth in its eight years of existence.
Dykes added that the company’s growth—from two employees to twenty in just eight years—has been accomplished “with a fantastic group of people. You don’t have to be a genius to thrive in business in this country, but it definitey takes hard work and perseverence.”
Nielsen explained, “Our success is possible because of our team atmosphere and proof that, even when the economy is down, you can create a business out of thin air, operate it profitably, and do it all without taking on debt. It’s not easy, but possible.”
Nielsen remarked that Graphics and More also has a 98% lifetime positive feedback rating on Amazon. “We expect be thriving for years to come.”
The 35th annual Inc. Magazine list “represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs,” according to a news release from the magazine. “Companies such as Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, GoPro, Timberland, Clif Bar, Patagonia, Oracle, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 5000.”
