June Member of the Month

We are excited to celebrate Seneca Blueprint Co., Inc. as our June Member of the Month!

Seneca Blueprint has been involved in the Cheektowaga Chamber of Commerce since 1954. They give the words “family business” a whole new meaning. Started in 1933 by Ella and Herbert Knight, the company is now run by their grandson and sole owner and president, Rick Knight. Knight is the third generation to own the Union Road business staple. Although blueprints and printing may be their specialty, the company services everyone from architects and engineers, to those looking to pick out the perfect shipping tube. With surveying tools and construction calculators available, Knight sees a wide variety of customers on a daily basis. This one-stop-shop has printing capabilities for businesses of any size, as banners and signage are made regularly on high end printers and machines.

As so many designers are turning to technology based programs, like CAD Software, Knight recognizes how things are changing, but that pencil to paper is never going to go away.

Knight shared, “When you hire a landscaper, they’re not going to bring a big computer on site. They are going to a have a blueprint and pencil to erase and make changes right in front of you.”

Once in a while, he’ll get a young entrepreneur come in to pick out the perfect mechanical pencil. His shop truly has high end, affordable products that you can’t find elsewhere.

Chances are, your business needs something that Seneca Blueprint can provide. Going on their 63rd year of Cheektowaga Chamber of Commerce membership, we’re proud to celebrate Seneca Blueprint!

Here are some tips to help you kick butt and (literally) take names at Cheektowaga Chamber Networking Events. Check things out beforehandSometimes knowing who you're going to see and what company they represent can help! A few days before the event, ask a staff member to send you a list of confirmed attendees. If a few stick out, you can even email them beforehand to tell them you're excited to meet them. This gives you a conversation starting point.

Chamber Myths: BUSTED

Take a look at our online directory and let us know who you'd like to connect with. We'll help turn a cold lead into a warm one. In every conversation we have we are constantly thinking of our members. When it's the right fit, we will always pitch your service or product whenever we can. We're always working for our members, even if your schedule gets a little too crazy. 


Myth #2: You have to reside in Cheektowaga to be a member of the Cheektowaga Chamber of Commerce.
