Why ARC powered by Proforma?

Many of our clients first engage with us to produce a specific item or service, whether that is a printed piece, a promotional item, a tradeshow booth, or even help with an online store. Once they discover that all of their marketing needs can be taken care of under one roof there is a sense of relief that they don’t have to do it all themselves. They now have a partner they can trust to take tasks off their plates with the expertise to get things done correctly and in a timely manner.

At ARC powered by Proforma, we aren’t just clerks taking print or promo orders all day long; we are your partners. First, we build a relationship with our clients with initial discussions about needs, preferences, budgets and timeframes. Along the way, we use our experience to consult, make suggestions, and find solutions so every decision is made not on a whim, but due diligence. We try to adapt to the processes of our clients so they don’t have to change their methodologies. It is our job to make your job easier, that is why our processes are flexible enough to meet your needs. This is how trusting relationships are built and that’s what we take pride in.

ARC powered by Proforma Cares

A message from the CEO, Andrew R Cipolla

Thank you so much for taking the time to learn more about ARC powered by Proforma. I wanted to take a minute to provide you with a little insight into why ARC powered by Proforma exists. As a child, I had aspirations to be the next well-known sports broadcaster. Everything was going in that direction until at the age of 16 I was diagnosed with Leukemia and underwent a bone marrow transplant. Thankfully, my brother Greg was a perfect bone marrow match. While the road was tough, it made me rethink my priorities. I no longer desired to travel every week and talk about sports all day. I wanted to serve others, not in a medical capacity, but in a way that suited my strengths. So many people played a role in my recovery that I wanted to return the favor.

I had grown up in the printing and promotions business, so I knew it well. When I started ARC powered by Proforma, I did not want it to be a typical printing company that simply takes orders and delivers products. I wanted my company to be built around the primary value of service…taking care of others. So, while we are not saving lives and curing diseases, we are doing our best to take care of our clients so they have one less thing to worry about. If that type of service sounds like something you would be interested in, please contact me directly at

ARC is a proud partner of the Children’s Cancer Research Fund and donates a percentage of each sale back to the organization.  Andrew Cipolla, the CEO of ARC, is a survivor of Leukemia and is passionate about helping fight this disease that touches everyone in our world today.  Thank you for helping ARC make a difference.

How we begin our relationship

The first step is learning how you currently market your business. We ask a lot of questions, including:

  • What is your goal, what are you trying to accomplish?
  • Who is your audience?
  • Why do you want to do this particular campaign (giveaway, event, email, etc.)?

Once we have a better understanding of what you’re trying to do and how you’re trying to do it, we’ll discuss how ARC powered by Proforma can help you meet your goals and make recommendations on how to meet them seamlessly and cost-effectively. We’ll identify ways to save money, streamline processes, and integrate your marketing efforts for the biggest ROI.

This is accomplished by calling on our marketing support team and leveraging Proforma’s incredible state-of-the-art technology – from online store platforms, video marketing capabilities, warehousing and fulfillment centers and everything in between.

Collaboration is Critical
The most successful client relationships are collaborative, sharing ideas, concerns, and input. Though, if you are short on time, we can take much of your marketing work off of your plate. We tailor our approach to meet each client’s specific needs and expectations.

Does this sound good to you?
We’d love to learn more about your business and its marketing challenges.
