    About Sean


    My name is Sean Cleary and I am the owner of Amherst Copy & Designworks and Valley Signworks, a local, family owned, small business located in Hadley, Massachusetts.  We are a high-tech, high-touch, print and sign shop, offering customers  premium printing, design and sign making services both in store and online.  Our friendly, knowledgeable and highly capable staff get your job done right, at a price you are willing to pay.  Happiness Guaranteed!   Call, click or come in, we are ready to serve you.  Our friendly staff, state of the art equipment and welcoming environment make us the go-to place for all of your print, design and sign making needs!

    What do we do?  Printing. Make life more convenient for our customers. Being local. Helping customers make their printing projects great. Protecting the environment and being green. Giving customers all the convenience of shopping at a big box store, while providing the quality customer service they can only get from a local, family-owned shop

    Being a locally owned and operated small business, we are privileged to be involved with, and to support, the success of many of these other local businesses and non-profit organizations.  We care because this is our community.  We grew up here, attended college here, and are raising our families here.  We are committed to the quality of life we all enjoy in this community.

    If you work with us you will get all the benefits of shopping locally and all the convenience you may associate with national chains and online sellers. You will also get amazingly fast turnaround times, free local delivery, friendly personal service and technical expertise that is not available from the big guys.  Happiness Guaranteed.


    Amherst Copy & Designworks is an American owned family business. In 2011 Sean Cleary, who grew up in Amherst, purchased Amherst CopyCat Print Shop. Shortly thereafter he changed the name to Amherst Copy & Designworks. Sean's motivation in buying the store was simple--he wanted to support the local community with a great family owned and operated, independent business where customers can talk to the owner nearly anytime and where you’ll probably be greeted by name. Sean also wanted to improve the store by making it more convenient for our customers to shop for their printing locally. That's why we built this website!

    We offer graphic design, printing, sign making, mounting, lamination, scanning, binding and secure document shredding. Everything from business cards to booklets to banners to simple self-serve computers and copiers.



    One of our great advantages is the speed with which we complete jobs—with most jobs being printed the day they are received. We are also known for our persnicketiness. We have our own color matching (mass spectrometer) device so that, upon your request, we can precisely match your color or colors.

    We are a green, eco-friendly printing company--nearly all of the paper we use is sourced from well managed, sustainable forestland. We recycle aggressively— all of our waste paper, cardboard and even our shredded paper is recycled.

    So drop by the store sometime, give us a call, find us on the internet. We are eager to make local printing convenient for you.
