There is a "Plus" to Action Copy


by Elizabeth Eidlitz


At quick glance, the gray building at 34 Main Street appears unchanged. You have to look up at the sign to notice that the seven-year-old business, Action Copy Team, has become Action Copy PLUS in its three months under new ownership.
     Joe Palmquist, who previously worked within Information Technology in Computer Services, had wanted to make a change by establishing his own business. Finding Action Copy Team for sale on the internet, Palmquist, who has Cisco and Microsoft certifications, saw a way to marry an existing business with his consulting experience.
     “The copiers have been replaced, the counters slightly reorganized, and the interior will get a face lift within the next two months, but for the most part we’ve kept it the same,” says Palmquist, who continues to offer copying, blueprint copies, business cards, letterhead, envelopes, binding, laminating, self-inking stamps, special occasion invitations, multi-part forms, and fax services.
     The major changes are ‘Plusses’ that reflect the expanded name: To the hours Monday through Friday 8-5:30, 9-1 on Saturdays have been added. Palmquist offers computer services to homes or small businesses and encourages use of electronic files. (Email your files to ,  and they will, print, copy, fold, label, insert, mail, or deliver for you.) Prices on colored paper and color copies have just been lowered.
     “The ‘Plus’ is kind of an open door,” says Palmquist, “for things like screen printing and pad printing down the road.”
     Though the new owners live in Cumberland R.I., their three-and-a-half year old twin boys, Nathan and Ryan, attend Hopkinton Christian preschool twice a week. “So we’re very kid-friendly at the store,” Palmquist smiles.
