Because someone
had to help.

After our own time in the media industry, we realized something.

Small businesses need help, and someone has to do it.

It was difficult where we were to find the time, the budget, or the confidence to fix what we saw in need. So we dove head first:

And flourished into an evergreen.

Come sit in the shade a while.

We are no nonsense --and kind of all nonsense. In the words of The Grand Funk Railroad:

"I don't need a whole lots of money"

We operate smarter, eliminate overhead, and take it upon ourselves to deliver a quality product. Everything is done in house and everything is backed by experience.

We aren't wasteful, we work hard, and we do what needs doing. 

But we also love what we do. And we do it well.

We are trustworthy, kind, and ready to work with you. We are Hemlock.

we BELIEVE IN:

Helping small businesses thrive. Hard work cannot be done without empathy. Any good taco needs onions. Dessert should always have whipped cream.

we're NOT ABOUT:

Overpriced, inaccessible media for small businesses that need the help. Sure, that's fine for big business, but what about the little guy?

YOU CAN FIND us:

Hanging out with our cats, jamming to our varying tastes in music, and enjoying the best things Kalamazoo has to offer.
