When I went to the map of locations on ABC Imaging’s web-site, and clicked on the “Philadelphia” location on the bar on the left side of that page, here’s the address that came up with the Google map showing the building where ABC’s Philadelphia location is located:
Philadelphia, PA 19103
When the Google map appeared, the side-bar to the left side of the map gave a list of other businesses operating in that same building – 1900 JFK Blvd – and one of the businesses listed is….
1900 John F Kennedy Boulevard
Philadelphia, PA 19103

If I was in Philadelphia, I’d walk over to ABC Imaging’s location to see if both ABC Imaging and Philadelphia Print and Color are separate businesses in that building or if ABC has moved into the space that Philadelphia Print and Color was in. Nice landlord, huh? When I visited Philadelphia Print and Color’s web-site, I didn’t see any mention of A/E/C reprographics services, but PP&C does offer many of the non-AEC services that ABC Imaging offers. For a landlord to have two very similar businesses in the same building, well, that’s not playing fair to the business that was already occupying space. But, perhaps PP&C had already moved out of the building, or perhaps ABC Imaging made a deal with PP&C to move into its space?
Tip: If you do ever make it to Philadelphia, make sure you go over to the Reading Terminal Market, which is right downtown. Very cool place to walk around. Lot’s of different stalls where vendors are selling all kinds of produce, meat, fish, baked goods, and the food is wonderful, lots of different choices – my favorite things to eat at the Reading Terminal Market include Hot Pastrami sandwiches (awesome!) with hot and crispy French fries, BBQ ribs and coleslaw, Fried Chicken --- all the stuff that I’m not supposed to eat! Stay at the Loew’s Hotel; great location, great staff and fantastic (and cheap) happy-hour hors d’oeuvres and drinks! Stuff your face and enjoy watching the parade of people outside.
With ABC Imaging now open in Philadelphia, that means that four of the five largest reprographics companies now have locations in the Philly market, including ARC, NRI, ServicePoint and ABC Imaging.
