HAPPY BIRTHDAY OLSON VISUAL! Yes, this really is our birthday and not an April Fools joke. Exactly 59 years ago today, Bob Olson’s Blow Up Lab was a small store front located on Beverly Blvd in Los Angeles. Now the three sons, Rick, Tom, and Dan, proudly run a large-format digital graphics printing source. The company is a larger business but we still provide the quality service that you would expect from a local neighborhood store. Therefore, we provide excellent product with personal communication after having decades of experience in the industry.
