About Cavu

Cavu Marketing is a locally-owned and operated marketing boutique located in the heart of downtown Elkin, a small little historic town in North Carolina. We offer a broad variety of marketing services and products, which include graphic design, marketing and branding, print, web development, and social media management.

Cavu’s main focus is primarily small businesses along with organizations and non-profit organizations.  We feel as though we have the resources available to assist with larger companies, however, our main target now is small local businesses and organizations.  We offer printing services, design services, and both print and ‘online’ marketing services. We are unique, unlike other print shops because we provide a variety of services for our clients leaving nothing for them to search out on their own.

Our Story

2009:  Cavu Printing, Inc. began with David Simms, Sr. as the sole owner. The business started with a focus on offset printing. From the inception of the company until 2015, Cavu provided small businesses with printing needs such as business cards, brochures, flyers, rack cards, and other promotional print items.

 

2015:  Brittany Russell joined in the corporation and became the majority owner in 2015. She holds ten years of previous experience in graphic design and printing services and was the lead designer at a local sign business, Brittany saw the importance of adding marketing to Cavu’s list of services offered.

 

Brittany was currently enrolled in the New Generation Ventures Program, a program offered by The NC Rural Center when she bought shares of Cavu Printing, Inc. By working with the New Generations Ventures, under the guidance of Amanda Sorrells Young, Director of Entrepreneurship Brittany learned entrepreneur skills by completing courses such as Quickbooks and Business Plan Development as well as her constant communication with her mentor.  Because of her dedication and hard work in the program, Brittany was the NC Rural Center inaugural award of Outstanding Young Entrepreneur in 2015. 

 

Since joining the corporation as a majority owner, Brittany used her vision and insight of adding marketing services and the sales of marketing products and this ultimately resulted in increasing Cavu’s business by 25%, in just a short span of time.

"Girl on Fire" by Alicia Keys

If you could shake hands with one person, who would it be and why?

Elizabeth Taylor "I've been through it all baby, I'm mother courage." Look up 'survivor' in the dictionary and you may well see Elizabeth Taylor glancing proudly up at you, under the weight of some dazzling diamonds, no doubt.

If you had a theme song, what would it be?

"I Have Been Blessed" by Martina McBride

If you could shake hands with one person, who would it be and why?

I would shake hands with Jackie Kennedy Onassis because I've always been inspired by her grace and dignity, and how she inspired a nation at one of its saddest points.

What does the prop in your photo represent?

The football, baseball and wrestling singlet represent my passion for watching sports.  I'm an avid fan and some of my happiest and proudest times involved watching my two sons play little league, high school and college sports.
