Fingerpaint Hosts Open House

By Staff Report | Business

SARATOGA SPRINGS — An open house showcasing Fingerpaint’s new offices in the former Borders Bookstore building was held on May 30. Nearly 300 guests and employees toured the office, which features and open space design instead of cubicle offices. 

Fingerpaint, a strategic and creative advertising agency headquartered in Saratoga Springs, with a satellite office in Wayne, Pennsylvania, recently completed renovations to the 30,000-square-foot, two-story building at 395 Broadway to accommodate its staff of 70 employees. The firm was previously located at The Lofts at 18 Division Street. 

“We have an extremely passionate, talented and creative team that is committed to Saratoga, the community and the work we do. We are grateful to be where we are today in five short years and want to thank our partners, clients, colleagues, friends and family for their continued support,” said Ed Mitzen of Fingerpaint. 

Upon arrival, guests toured the new office, were entertained with live jazz music by Al Santoro and Friends and experienced a “live” original painting by Saratoga Springs artist Frankie Flores, best known for his vibrant equine artwork. Beverages, hors d’oeuvres and dessert were provided by The Crown Grill at Circus Café and Coccadotts Cake Shop. 

Fingerpaint leased its new space, which includes the parking lot behind the building, for 10 years from Myron M. Hunt in Buffalo. The parking lot will be offered to charitable organizations to raise money on select weekends. 

“Social responsibility is ingrained in Fingerpaint’s culture. Each year we donate our time and resources to non-profits such as SPAC, Double H Ranch, The Hyde Collection, Rebuilding Together Saratoga County, Franklin Community Center, JDRF Northeastern NY Chapter and more,” said Mitzen. 

Additionally, Fingerpaint has created a position to head up philanthropic efforts and corporate giving and will formerly announce a new hire for this position in the coming weeks.
