Company History

Beyond Graphics was originally started in 1997 by Beth Hatch. Beth worked in the Real Estate industry for many years and always  loved designing her own flyers and postcards. Soon her colleagues started to hire her to help with their marketing collateral. Eventually Beth realized that Graphic Design was her calling and her work evolved into creating Beyond Graphics. For nearly 20 years Beth and her team have served the greater Sonoma County region in addition to a national Real Estate audience. In 2012, Jules Schaafsma joined the Beyond Graphics team. Sadly Beth Hatch has since passed away. In 2013 Jules became the sole investor/owner of  Beyond Graphics and as of January 2016, Jules is now doing business as JD Schaafsma Designs instead of Beyond Graphics. Additionally, Jules has diversified the offerings to extend well beyond the Real Estate market. Call Jules today to see how she can help your business to shine.
