In 1923, Raymond Smale Sr. began Office Service Company in Pottstown, PA selling office machines and business supplies. Years later, the company evolved and changed its name to Risson Press (Raymond I Smale & Son), and began printing custom business forms for local manufacturers.

In 1987, desktop publishing technology was having an impact on the printing industry. Seeing an opportunity in the marketplace, Ray Jr.‘s son Donald and his wife Brandy launched a sideline venture called Desktop Technologies.

By the early 1990s, desktop publishing blossomed and forever changed the way the prepress function was performed. Desktop Technologies and Risson Press responded by merging operations and aggressively adding capabilities. The name of the combined business venture was changed to Colorworks Graphic Services.

In 2011, Colorworks joined forces with Membership Marketing Support Services (MMSS). With more than 30 years of expertise in the credit union industry, Colorworks Graphics Services and MMSS have now rebranded under one unified name: COLORWORKS. One company, one updated brand, one unified vision for the future, many flavors of clients.

We are truly grateful to each client we’ve had the opportunity to serve and look forward to the journey ahead and the amazing opportunities that await us all.

Colorworks joined forces with Membership Marketing Support Services (MMSS). MMSS had been focused on the credit union and financial services industry for more than 30 years. As a leader in strategic marketing services, MMSS enjoyed the privilege of helping more than 2,000 financial clients nationwide. Now, as Colorworks, they continue to serve credit unions, banks, and financial service companies of every size nationwide.
