ACE Printing & Mailing was opened for business back in 1985. The founders were Steve Gulyas, Sr., his wife Louise Gulyas and their son Thom Gulyas. Originally we operated out of a smaller building located at Ten South Main Street in Berlin, Maryland. It was humble beginnings but we made it work. There was so little room that most of the equipment was on wheels for a reason. We would gather jobs and roll out the required equipment. When that job was finished, we would roll that equipment away then roll out a different piece to start the next job!! It was crazy being that cramped!
Soon after we started, Thom Gulyas stepped into the position of sales. Not being one who is shy or at a loss for words, he readily accepted the task and propelled the company going forward. Many inroads were made into areas that other printing companies could only dream about. Sales came naturally to Thom because of his eagerness to help businesses become successful. He became more of a “resource” and not just and “order taker.”
We started as primarily as a mailing company only. We tried our best to work with other printing vendors in the area but were forced to bring those services in house due to the uncertainty of delivery from those vendors. It was at this time that Thom said “Gee, how hard could printing really be?” He later learned that those words would come back to bite him later!
In 1994, Steve Gulyas, Sr. passed away from complications with cancer. It was at that time that Thom decided to step up and lead the company into the future. He saw the need for expansion into other areas of marketing; signs, digital printing, expanded mailing services, database marketing, mailing lists....just to name a few areas. While the grief left with the family was difficult, it was important that we continue to move forward.
Under Thom's leadership, ACE Printing & Mailing started to become one of the fastest-growing printing firms in the state of Maryland during the 1990s and going forward. Most of the success we enjoyed came from our quick turnaround, attention to detail and willingness to help our clients meet their goals. We want to focus on making our clients more profitable.
