This is to call out in person the horrible and unethical business practices of the owner of this fake print house..
Pete Chinnici

This guy is a real treat ut not in a good way to say the least... He lies every turn he can .. He claims he is a "Full service print house" in one breath but then looking him up he says all over he is just a "broker" a middleman.. he manufactures nothing never has been in the printing trade and has no clue what it takes to run a real full service print house... However in email after email he continually berraded me and my business.. defamed my business name, defamed my business reputation and has nothing to say about it. Thing is he doesn't even have the guts to file these false complaints under his real name as I have done.. He is nothing more than a scam artist.. a roach or vulture picking up the scraps... and he is so insecure, he feel s he needs to put me and my business down every chance he gets...
I have attached a couple of his emails here where he lies ansays he is a big production facility then later takes that back and tries to put down my real print facility. One I have run with my father since I was 14 years old in 1984 we opened shop here in Glendale...
After all those years and after numerous jokers like this Pete who will come into the field, realize its nothing what he thought it was and leave within a year or two. In addition to his horribly false and illegal defamation concerning my business, this guy feels if he breaks every rule on craigslist and posts 500 ads all day long, he will somehow justify his exsistence... Really it shows his desperation and lack of skill in this field. My business is rated an A+ by the BBB and Direct Marketing you ask where are they rated?? Funny they aren't even mentioned by the BBB they do not even exsist.. yet Pete claims to have taken all of my customers and he is making money hand over foot all day everyday... yet another unethical and false lie. He even says in his websites, he tries not to make money thats how he is so cheap he claims... He is a con artist and you would be smart to steer clear of this joker... I have multiple pieces of proof of his lies and deceipt and do not make one unbacked claim against this guy.

Here was one of his wonderful emails to me... straight LIES he is not print house at all he resides in a 750 sqft run down condo in the ghetto of Phoenix!!!

After 26 years in business you should have more clients keeping you busy enough to not harass others. We are not a brokerage, we are a full service print house capable of handling just about any method of print from Lithographic to Offset and everything in between. The only thing we "broker" is our partnership with our local Vehicle Wrapping company. While one of my employees did make an error in overposting (which has now been corrected, and ads being removed)
yet another lie cuz it was no employee it was him and he has started it all back up again.. who are you joking man?

We're a small company, really small. We don't have the overhead of these big companies with million dollar advertising budgets. We're just like you, just trying to maximize profitability while putting out stunning advertisement and marketing materials at lowest cost possible.

We're not your typical printer, we do things smarter not harder. We focus on getting your message to the right audience at the right time, and ultimately getting you SALES. We don't have fancy automated answering machines, high tech call centers, and hundreds of employees. We're just the little guy trying to help fellow little guys. Do one thing and do it right, that's what we're all about here at Direct Marketing!

Yeah all that and a big fat FULL BOOK OF LIES AND ### TOO! RUN DON'T WALK FROM THIS GUY...

    We are a Marketing Firm that does outsource certain products from local and national sources. We offer some of the most affordable pricing you can find, most times comparing with Online-only prices. We also offer full customer service, 1 on 1 meetings with our clients in their locations to get a better feel for their needs. The method we use along with our system allows us to put out amazing products at sometimes 1/4 of traditional prices. This angers some local printers who feel we are a threat to their business.

    We want to co-exist with other service providers here in Phoenix, AZ and inform people of how to save money and turn their marketing budgets into an additional revenue stream for further expansion. While this local printer has had problems with us in the past based on the nature of business and methods we use to advertise we have NEVER short changed a client. We can provide many many references of extremely happy clients who will tell you first hand "They only market with Direct Marketing" and our track record speaks for itself.
