IntegraColor Ltd, based in Mesquite, Texas, has acquired Dallas-based digital print firm The Color Place. The acquisition will extend IntegraColor’s assets for digital printing into small and grand formats, permanent and promotional signage, and will also facilitate expansion into the quick-turn, short-run projects that The Color Place has been known for. IntegraColor intends to retain The Color Place team, consolidating equipment and personnel into its headquarters in Mesquite. Rex Jobe, founder and CEO of The Color Place, will stay on with IntegraColor through the transition.
