Transition is something everyone experiences on occasion, as do businesses. A Yakima business has undergone a recent transition, making a temporary move to a new space, while the original facility is redesigned to look similar to its temporary home.
Chris Duren, and his wife, Sarah, are the owners of Invisible Ink. The business opened in 2008 when the couple saw a need for design work in the Valley. For years, they have worked from their office in the Airway Plaza, located at 3601 W. Washington Ave. Duren said the plaza was built in the 1980s, and the time has come for a demolition and remodel project.
“The remodel work that’s required is so large that we had to relocate for a little while,” Duren said. “But we expect to be back in our old building this year.”
Invisible Ink has relocated to the Liberty Building at 32 N. Third St. in suite 304. Almon Commercial Real Estate assisted the company in its move to a new facility — and Duren loves the design of the building. However, staying there permanently doesn’t make sense, as it’s much too big. But sooner rather than later, Invisible Ink will have the best of both worlds.
“Our old office is being designed to mimic this one and we are really excited about that,” Duren said. “We will also be able to be back in a more size-appropriate space.”
Invisible Ink primarily offers website development, but it also does logos, graphics, print and it recently added an apparel line.
Those interested in Invisible Ink’s services can call 509-654-7770 or stop by the office in the Liberty Building. Invisible Ink is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Update: We’re staying downtown! Back in January we moved to the Liberty Building while our old office of 12+ years goes through a major renovation. Before the shutdown we had a chance to spend time in our temporary office and we’ve decided to make downtown our permanent home. Our new space is located at 32 N 3rd Street on the 4th floor in suite 412.
