Hackworth was founded in 1991 when it started out printing blue prints and technical documents. Today, we are a full fledged printing, graphics and wide format technology solutions organization, all thanks to the inspiring leadership of Dorothy and Charlie Hackworth and their son Charles.

Hackworth is a State-Certified, Small Business (SWaM) in Chesapeake, Virginia that provides a wide range of printing and marketing services, wide format digital imaging and printing systems and supplies, and document management solutions. Although the nature of our core business has somewhat changed over the last two decades, we continue to be committed to provide excellence in our business solutions, and to the communities and families of those with whom we share mutually beneficial partnerships.
