The History of RubySue Graphics
It all started almost 15 years ago when Leon Leathers began his career in screen printing. Still located in the exact building that he started in, Leon learned the business from the ground up. First cleaning screens, then becoming production manager, later buying the company with a partner, and then buying the production plant from his partner.
The name RubySue Graphics is a combination of the names of his grandmothers, Ruby Tillman and Sue Leathers. He honors both grandmothers with the name of his company. Leon has printed for many well-known clients such as Widespread Panic, R.E.M., Coca Cola, Duck Head, Starter, University of Georgia, and many more. If you are looking for experience and expertise, you have come to the right place for all of your promotional items.
RubySue Graphics provides every client with the highest quality of promotional products available at a reasonable price as quickly as possible. We treat each client with the respect they deserve.
