When your name recognition is so great that you can build a successful commercial printing and mailing business on the name of an interior design shop from the 1960s, you know you’ve done something right —really right. Design Distributors, a commercial print and mail house in Deer Park, N.Y.,was formed as a small envelope shop in 1966 by David and Stuart Avrick. Today, with Stuart’s son Adam at the helm, it employs 125 people, fills 130,000 square feet and pumps out more than 100 million pieces per year.

It may not be the largest shop in the Northeast, but Design Distributors claims to be the most diverse. This claim is backed up with an
impressive equipment list, including perfecting and non-perfecting Halm Jet presses (black-and-white and four-color), one 40″ 6-color Mitsubishi with a coater, sheetfed Xerox machines (black-and-white and 4-color), Ricoh Pro C9100/9220 Series full-color
machines and Muller Martini 8- and 10-color presses with UV drying and in-line diecutting. Most recently, Design Distributors invested in an HP PageWide Web Press T240 HD for its highvolume variable data jobs. The company now holds enough roll-fed paper to extend from New York to Los Angeles.

“The existing finishing lines just weren’t fast enough,” Glanzman notes. “We had to have the absolute fastest finishing equipment available. That meant MBO.”
