Waldorf, Maryland March 2018- Heritage Printing & Graphics were recognized by Maryland Department of Commerce for 40 years of operation in the Southern Maryland community.

Steve Gass, General Manager Heritage Printing & Graphics in Maryland, received the certificate and provided a tour of the renovated facility. The group included:

  • Mike Gill, Secretary, Maryland Department of Commerce
  • Brady Walker, Managing Director and Special Advisor., Maryland Department of Commerce
  • Steve Wall, Southern Maryland Regional Manager, Office of Business Development

Heritage Printing & Graphics started in 1977 in Joe Gass’s family garage in Leonardtown, Maryland, by his parents Allen and Margaret as Gass Printing Service. Allen taught his three sons, Joe, Steve, and Dean, the printing ropes, and the business slowly took over the house until the company finally moved the still very small business to its first commercial location in 1984 in their hometown.

In the past three and a half years, Heritage has seen significant growth, with wide and grand format being a big part of it. During this time Heritage has begun to market “Heritage Custom Signs and Displays” as a division of their company, while seeing this part of the business grow to more than 40 percent of their company’s revenue.

All three Gass brothers are working in the organization and there’s even a third generation, Steve’s son Eric, working on the production side in Maryland.

“As we bring in younger talent to do the heavy lifting and drive innovation, my goal is to be a great coach and push things forward,”says Joe.“I recognize that my greatest value is in leadership development and mentoring the next generation”.

Heritage Printing & Graphics is a full-service printing firm with capabilities including: magazine printing, direct mail services, self-published book printing, and an array of DIP & Sheetfed printing. For more information, contact any project coordinator at Heritage:www.HeritagePrinting.com
