Who We Are

The two of us have worked side by side for more than 20 years. Our collaborative efforts are exceptional and our friendship runs deep. Individually we have a lot to offer. Together, we’re even better.

Chris Colcer

Chris works one-on-one with clients on marketing strategy and copywriting, then manages the projects from concept to completion. Clients trust her 30 years of experience.

Kathy Hourigan

Kathy, a graphic designer, makes ideas come to life on her screen. She’s a master at creating unique comps and a perfectionist when it comes to printing and bindery.

What We Do

We bust our hinnies for our clients. We never say no and we don’t miss deadlines. Even after 20 years, we thrive on the excitement of new projects and we unleash new creativity whenever clients give us the green light.

Print is not dead. While marketing via social media has opened up all kinds of new avenues, there is still a great need for the printed word. Hospitals, schools, businesses – large and small – require brochures, newsletters, annual reports, fliers, billboards, posters, print ads, signage and mailers. We know because we’re asked every day to develop something cool and creative for print. Today, we augment our print requests with digital communications.

We love what we do. Every day is different from the next. Life at CHR Communications is never boring and always fun.

Our Clients

Some of our clients have been with us since the beginning in 1998, and we have been fortunate to have gained new clients along the way. Many of our clients are in the business of healthcare or education, yet we’ve welcomed the manufacturing, automotive, food, sports and entertainment segments as well. We treat our clients like family and we have been rewarded with their loyalty and friendship.

Our Portfolio

We have boxes and boxes of printed samples of our work, as well as a cloud full of digital files. We’ve included only a handful of samples here, but we’re always willing to drag out the boxes or send you PDFs of our work.
