Bill Ashby

Bill Ashby

Bill started A&A Printing in Tampa, Florida in 1981. The company has always been primarily in the book and booklet printing business, and sales were generated primarily through direct sales call marketing to local business’s in the immediate tri-county area. Quick turnaround and attention to quality have always been the strong points of the company. With the addition of their first website in 2000, A&A began to reach out to publishing companies and self-publishing authors not only in the state of Florida, but also throughout the country and beyond. In 2002, Bill Jr. arrived on the scene and totally revamped the website and internet marketing areas of the company and made the Online Book Publishing Department the fastest growing area of the business. Today the company is a combination of many loyal local house accounts and thousands of online publishing customers throughout the world.

Publishing has become his love and he really enjoys helping authors bring their books into the world. Billy has guest-spoken at many book groups, conferences, and has hosted two seminars on self-publishing. He resides with his wife, Sara, and two young sons, Miles and Chase, who may one day as well take over the family business.
