About Presentation Solutions

Presentation Solutions:


"More than two decades of excellence"


Presentation Solutions has succeeded because we really do care about our customers. We feel that happy customers turn into repeat customers, and that is what we want. We also realize that in order to have repeat customers, we need to keep you happy! Although this seems like common sense, it is astounding how many companies really don't care about anything other than making an immediate sale. Our people will help you determine what you really need, give you a fair price, and then train you on how to use the equipment after you buy it! In addition, if you should ever have a problem, we make your problem into our problem, and we will do everything we can to solve it expeditiously and to your satisfaction. This philosophy not only helps us win new customers, it also helps us turn those new customers into long-term repeat customers!


Presentation Solutions has four separate divisions, each concentrating on a particular product and / or market. This allows our people in each division to become an expert on that product and market, which is exactly the type of person that we would want to deal with if we needed something! Additionally, by focusing our product offerings on only the top manufacturers in each industry, we have become one of the top dealers in the country for each of the manufacturers whom we represent!

Our four divisions consist of the following: Varitronics Poster Printers; the MAX Window Graphics System; Industrial Labeling and Signage Systems from Brady Signmark; and our newest division, CoolLam Laminating and Mounting System.


Presentation Solutions was founded in 1990 by then-23 year old entrepreneur Joe C. Powell and his mother, Carol. We started out with two desks and one telephone in a corner of the basement of Carol's house, and used the laundry room and one-car garage as warehouse space! The company carried only one product line back then, a large-format Poster Printer from Varitronics (which is still one of our best-sellers today!). As we grew in both number of employees and product lines carried, we quickly outgrew "the basement", and in 1995 built and moved into Presentation Solutions' current Corporate Headquarters (right), located in "downtown" Buckner, Kentucky.
