Working together at Transmogrify are

One of Enumclaw’s growing businesses has outpaced its former space and moved into new, larger quarters.

Transmogrify, owned by Darami and Chris Coulter, packed up and left its 4,600-square-foot location on Blake Street in early February. The new home is a 10,000-square-foot suite at 1725 Garrett Street.

The need for more space reflects the expanded offerings presented by the Coulters and the 15 Transmogrify employees. Originally a production facility – when it went under the name The Printers Inc. – the firm has expanded since the Coulters purchased the business in April 2009.

“We have expanded from a production company to help our clients’ business grow,” Darami Coulter said. “Now, we look at the bigger picture.”

That means starting at ground zero with a client and looking at everything from marketing plans to the strength of competitors. Transmogrify is now a full-service agency, Coulter said, with the ability to offer clients help with social media, website development, branding and the placement of print and electronic advertising.

The expanded efforts, along with technological advancements, means Transmogrify can – with the push of a button – serve clients almost anywhere.

“We have clients off over the globe,” Coulter said, using a customer in Dubai as a prime example of how the business world can operate.

Coulter estimates 85 percent of her business comes from outside the area. But that doesn’t mean Transmogrify ignores local folks.

“We love our local clients,” she said, noting that the company has dealt with perhaps 1,800 customers during the past 12 months.
