With an office in the famed Printers Row, James DeBlasio, Sr. and his wife Maria started JD Graphic in 1963 as a premier print broker in Chicago. Today, JD Graphic spans three generations as James DeBlasio, Jr., president, and son Nick DeBlasio, vice president, lead a family-based management team serving the greater Chicago area. With more than 40 employees, JD Graphic operates multiple sheet-fed, web, and digital presses as well as a full-service finishing department. This fall, JD Graphic continues their expansion by installing an eight-color RMGT 920PF-8 long perfector, equipped with GEW’s Leo-LED-UV curing system and a Quantum QRS roll-to-sheet feeder.
“We are a commercial printer at heart,” states Nick DeBlasio. “My father and grandfather built this business and nurtured a progressive culture that we maintain down to this day. With the RMGT 9 Series, we have the versatility to stay within our current lane and expand into a new exciting marketplace. This newly developed roll-to-sheet feeder is the first of its kind for the 9 Series press. I believe it is going to be a key to our future success — it will allow us to save a lot of money on paper costs and the RMGT 9 Series offers the lowest cost of print manufacturing as well.”
Since JD Graphic has extensive experience with web presses and the paper supply chain, DeBlasio says the ability to add a roll feeder to the RMGT 9 Series press was a key factor in their decision to invest in the RMGT long perfector.
