Hagerstown, MarylandHBP, Inc., a $30 million communications company focused on print, web, and mobile services, today announced the completion of its corporate rebranding efforts, establishing the union of the HBP and Balmar brands. HBP/Whitmore will rebrand as HBP in 2014. The change represents a strategic shift in HBP’s ability to help customers leverage multiple, diverse channels to communicate more effectively with their target audiences.

The rebranding process provided an opportunity to bring all three companies together with one vision. HBP is no longer just a commercial printing company; we have evolved to provide intelligent solutions to address clients’ myriad communications and marketing challenges. Our customized approach helps organizations engage their audience in many different ways—whether it is print, the Internet, a mobile solution or a combination of all three.”
