Heritage Printing, Signs & Displays is a veteran owned and operated, award-winning commercial printing, custom sign shop and event display company operating two production facilities that serve the Washington, DC, Baltimore, MD and Charlotte, NC markets and much of the eastern United States.
The company was established in 1977 in the Gass family garage in Leonardtown, Maryland by Allen and Margaret as Gass Printing Service. In 1988, following six years of service in the United States Navy, their son Joe, along with his brother Steve, purchased the company and re-branded it as Heritage Printing & Graphics. For over four decades, Heritage has grown and changed to meet the needs of our clients and our community.
The business operated from various locations in Southern Maryland for the first 38 years, as it grew. During that time, Heritage has built an outstanding reputation for print quality and customer support, having won over 300 printing awards during that time. In August 2015, Heritage acquired Beacon Printing, and relocated its operations from Leonardtown, MD to the Beacon facility in Waldorf, Maryland. Since that time, the Waldorf facility has been fully renovated and equipped with the latest in digital, offset and wide format printing technology.
The ability to produce high quality signs, event displays, storefront and interior graphics within a short distance from downtown DC, allows us to deploy our installers to get around the city quicker. This has become an enormous asset for our clients in Washington, DC, Alexandria and Arlington, VA, Fairfax County, Rockville, Silver Springs and Bethesda, MD and Prince Georges County, that typically have very tight production and install schedules to meet.
We continue to pursue excellence in all aspects of our business by actively living out mission statement and core values. The Heritage team recognizes that continued success, in an ever-changing marketplace, will only come by providing outstanding and timely solutions for our clients in an affordable manner each day.
