Is printing an art or a science? In today’s world most would believe that it’s the machine that does all of the work. Not so, said Bill Kuplen, president and CEO. “At Alcom we believe that craftsmanship is still an art. We continually take a blank sheet of paper and create magic. We visually tell a story that others believe needs to be told. It is our purpose and our mission! We are very proud of all of our team members and very excited that their passion still continues to burn. At Alcom, creating art is still alive and well.”
Alcom is an integrated marketing communications company located 45 minutes outside of Philadelphia in Harleysville. With more than 65 years of service excellence in the industry, Alcom offers solutions to fit its large sheetfed, cold-set web and digital printing equipment.
“By expanding our focus beyond the printed page, utilizing cross media marketing initiatives we have set the benchmark for effective variable data communications,” Kuplen added.
