Heritage Printing & Graphics is a veteran owned and operated, award-winning, full-service provider of publications, event signage and displays, marketing materials and direct mail services. We operate two production facilities that primarily serve the Washington, DC and Charlotte, NC markets and much of the eastern United States.
Heritage was established in 1977 in Leonardtown, Maryland by Allen and Margaret Gass; it was originally named Gass Printing Service. The business was sold to their sons Joe and Steve in 1988 and rebranded as Heritage Printing & Graphics.
Our Charlotte facility was established in November, 2009, several years after Joe relocated with his family to North Carolina to take a much needed sabbatical and work with a local ministry. In a short period of time Heritage Printing & Graphics in Charlotte established itself as the “go to” wide format printer in the Southeast.
In 2014 the production capability in Charlotte was further enhanced with the addition of another wide format six color Agfa flat-bed printer, a 64” six color Latex printer and a 104” HP Scitex six color latex roll printer. The finishing department added automated hemming and grommeting to its growing arsenal of capabilities. These additions have allow Heritage to more cost effectively produce longer run length orders while also more quickly turning around existing product for our customers.
The growing demand for high quality, fabric and vinyl event signage, displays and backdrops as well as retail point of purchase, storefront graphics and interior wall and window graphics in the Washington, DC market has spurred Heritage to add that capability at their Maryland facility. The addition of 64” and 104” latex printers that image to vinyl and fabric equally well has been a great asset to our clients in the DC area.
In August, 2015, Heritage Printing acquired and relocated its operations to Beacon Printing in Waldorf, Maryland. Beacon Printing, established in 1974, and Heritage were friendly competitors sharing similar commercial printing capabilities but few of the same customers. Now they are combined under one roof in Waldorf.
With the relocation to expanded space in Waldorf, Heritage is now in a position to add UV color flatbed printing on rigid substrates (plastic, metal and wood) up to 5’ x 10’ as well as CNC flatbed and laser cutting capabilities to its arsenal of production, similar to our abilities in Charlotte, NC.
As we celebrate our 40th anniversary, Heritage Printing & Graphics continues to grow by providing innovative and affordable solutions. Having been awarded over 200 print quality awards, we have consistently shown that Heritage is not just another printer. Our staff seeks to enhance local businesses and organizations with their marketing and communications programs by delivering the kind of customer service that exceeds expectations every day.
