DCI was founded in Akron, Ohio, in 1992 as a prepress service provider for area printers and ad agencies. DCI quickly added services and rapidly became the provider of choice for lithographic films, proofs and color editing services for the entire Northeast Ohio area. After mastering these services, additional growth was a natural next step.
Proving its ability to adapt to the market and provide business solutions, DCI aggressively purchased the highest quality equipment available, added to its technically trained staff and successfully morphed into a national print company.
DCI continues to be a constantly adaptive and innovative business. The company remains at the forefront of the print, graphic and communication industry. DCI is a proven expert at providing high-quality, innovative and fully-integrated creative solutions. Our marketing and merchandising solutions include retail displays, specialty packaging, custom folding cartons, fulfillment and warehousing, offset print and finishing, digital storefronts, digital asset management and creative services – all with speed, quality and flexibility.
