AB Dick and Graphic Arts Supplies.com Announce Agreement

Press release from the issuing company

CHICAGO, IL -- In a move that will help bolster small and mid-sized printers with the highest quality products and services, Graphic Art Supplies.Com is now an authorized A.B.Dick Company reseller for the Southern California market. The Tustin, California-based supplies company will stock over 2,000 A.B.Dick consumable printing and graphic supply items. "We are very pleased with this agreement. A.B.Dick is a major manufacturer with great brand name recognition and private label products," said Gary K. Fisher, President of Graphic Arts Supplies.Com. "It is a known fact that to be successful, you must surround yourself with talented people and partner with top-quality businesses. We believe we have accomplished this in our agreement with A.B.Dick." "A.B.Dick Company has strengthened the supplies channel in an important market such as southern California by partnering with Graphic Art Supplies.Com," said Dave Vanderwiel, Vice President and General Manager, Consumables. "When you combine the single source convenience, technical reference and competitive pricing together the way this company does, printers will realize Graphic Arts Supplies.Com and A.B.Dick have everything they need to succeed." One key product Graphic Arts Supplies.Com will be stocking is ProofPerfect, a drymatch color proofing material on display in the A.B.Dick booth (#623) this week at Gutenberg. The show runs from May 17-19 at the Long Beach Convention Center. ProofPerfect is a quick and cost-effective product that delivers true color proofs to match the color on press. Since it is a dry process proofing material, there is no need for processors, processing chemicals, toners and water. Using a laminator, printers will experience a reduction in production time from 30 to 50 percent due to the fast exposure rate and quick peel in one, consistent sheet. "We have a very knowledgeable staff that has a solid understanding of the prepress side of the business. ProofPerfect is a dynamic consumable item for us to make available to our customers," said Fisher, a 20-year industry veteran who founded Graphic Arts Supplies.Com with David Harlan in 1999. "This dealership was intentionally formed by printers for printers to deliver the best value with all the conveniences of modern technology. It is our intention to give printers what they want, when they want, and the way they want it." A.B.Dick Company is a leading worldwide supplier to the graphic arts and printing industry, manufacturing and marketing equipment and supplies for all stages of document creation -- prepress, press and post-press -- as well as continuing service and support.
