Executive Profile | Tracey Papke

A transplant from the San Francisco Bay Area, I joined the Temecula/Murrieta Valley community in 2008, when my husband, Tony Papke, and I purchased Potamus Press.  Since then, I have enjoyed connecting our clients to the “Power of Print” and embracing all that owning a business and living in the Valley has to offer.


  • Advisory Board Member for Michelle’s Place, Breast Cancer Resource Center
  • Member of the Temecula, Murrieta and Menifee Chambers of Commerce
  • Sponsor of many community events, including the 2014 Temecula Rod Run, 2014 Michelle’s Place Spring Fling, and the 2014 Boys and Girls Club Valley Idol

Business Philosophy

I am passionate about providing quality printing for businesses and community in an efficient, cost effective manner.  I believe in partnering with my clients from concept to completion of each print project.  Building a strong working relationship connects us to the wonderful sense of community that is here in the Valley.


My goal is to bridge the digital and print worlds by helping to put together cohesive and cost effective advertising campaigns for the businesses and organizations in the Temecula/Murrieta Valley.

Throughout my life, I have had the pleasure of learning from some amazing people, and now I am fortunate to have a core group of professional women in this community that encourage and inspire me in both my professional and personal life.
