Print Resources in NC

So I know this is just starting, but maybe we should begin cataloging print shops in the state, what programs they offers, etc, both academic and otherwise. Maybe consider including letter press people? Seems like there are plenty of printers here but not a lot of places to go to print, might be nice to have those in one spot.
