ABOUT OUR TEAM

Greg Jones
Owner / Operator Rancho Mirage

I have been an entrepreneur for the past 34 years and have always  held the philosophy that to steadily grow a business, you have to offer fair pricing backed with great customer service. I moved from Redding, California to Rancho Mirage with my wife Cindy and daughter Brittany in 2005 and purchased Desert Welcome with the intention of expanding it to include additional marketing services.

In 2014 we officially changed the business name to Local’s Choice Printing, and while the Desert Welcome program is still a large part of our business, we’ve expanded our services to offer low-cost printing, direct mail, graphic design, websites, digital marketing, and brand management services. Everything we do here is based around the relationships and trust that we’ve built with our clients. I’ve made sure that Local’s Choice Printing offers desert consumers the opportunity to keep their business local while actually saving money compared to what they would pay at online companies like VistaPrint. I am very proud of the team that we have put together to serve your print and digital marketing needs.

Meilani MacDonalod
Customer Happiness Rep.

Though I’m originally a transplant from the east coast, I am a California Girl through and through and have been on the best…oops I mean west…coast for over 30 years. My background is in graphic design, public relations, public speaking, and online marketing using websites and social media avenues such as YouTube, Twitter and Facebook. I am also a registered tutor on Wyzant.com teaching online students how to use their Macs and Apple devices, WordPress, Adobe InDesign and photo manipulation apps including Adobe Photoshop and Pixlr.

I am excited to be bringing this background and experience to Local’s Choice, and to be of assistance to our customers who wish to expand their marketing efforts from print-only to online, to increase their brand awareness and keep themselves in front of their customers and clients in the digital realms. My goal is to keep you happy by providing the best service, just the way locals like it – personal, authentic, efficient and affordable – in other words, to be the Local’s Choice!

Patricia Beebe
Graphic Designer

I am a California native and I’ve always had an interest in art, which led me to become a graduate of the Digital Arts & Design Certificate Extension Program offered by UC’s Riverside Campus, UCR.  

I am responsible for design conception, branding, and layout for our clients’ print marketing and direct mail campaigns, including business cards, postcards, brochures, flyers and other print marketing materials.

My husband Gary and I live in Desert Hot Springs with our dog Sebastian and two cats, Ruby and Delilah. My two grown daughters, Kristen and Robin, live in Arizona and Illinois, respectively.
