The History

In 1895, a German immigrant named William R. Ludwig decided that the best way to support his family in the New World was to find a way to use the book binding trade that he had learned in his homeland. His new home of Morgantown did not have a commercial binding operation so he opened The Acme Publishing Company.

In those early years, a large portion of the business was the binding of ledger books of many different types used in businesses around Morgantown, but in the very early 20th century, Mr. Ludwig decided that his company should expand into commercial printing and the move was made. The Acme Publishing Company occupied a new building on Front Street (University Avenue).

In 1914, a group of investors bought the company and incorporated it under the name of Morgantown Printing & Binding. E.M. Grant was the president of the new corporation. They retained W.R. Ludwig as the general manager of the operation until January of 1916.

The Acme Building housed Acme Publishing Company and Morgantown Printing & Binding (after 1914) for the first quarter of the 20th century before it burned in 1927. The building was located on Front Street. (University Ave). This photo is from a postcard which is postmarked December, 1909 and Printed by The Acme Publishing Co. In 1927 the company was moved to 163 Kirk Street following a fire that destroyed The Acme Building on Front Street. This location remained as the company `s headquarters until it moved to its present location on Greenbag Road in 1999.

In February of 1916 the investors sold their interest to a group which included W.R. Ludwig as chairman of the board. Mr. Ludwig was again named as the general manager and he maintained that association until his death in 1934. The Ludwig family continued to operate the business until the economic stresses associated with World War II caused them to begin to seek a buyer in 1944.

Forest Thompson became president of the board and assumed ownership of the company in 1944. He and the Thompson family operated the business until 1978 when the stock was sold to Albert "Bud" Everly, Jr., who had joined the company in 1945 and operated the business until 1995.

H. Andrew Walls, III, purchased the stock in 1995 and assumed ownership as the 5th owner in the long history of the company. Andy immediately began an aggressive expansion of the business. The Kirk Street location remained as the company’s headquarters until it moved to its present location on Greenbag Road in 1999.

With its new 65,000 square foot state of the art production and mailing facility, which boasts the latest in printing technology and quality control, the company has grown from 17 employees to over 75 full time employees.

Vehicle Wraps

Become The Billboard
Phonebook advertising can reach costs of $5,000 - $12,000 per year. Billboards can cost $2,000 - $3,000 per month in a prime location and you're only renting it. Why not "become" the billboard?

Did you know that roughly 90% of Americans travel in a vehicle each week either as a driver or as a passenger? You, yourself probably have a car, truck, or company vehicle of some kind. An average wrap on a vehicle will cost anywhere from $2,000 - $5,000 and will last anywhere from 5-7 years. That is getting your money’s worth.

What is a wrap?
A wrap consists of laminated and printed vinyl material. It is stretched to fit the contours of your vehicle to make it look like whatever you can imagine. The material is rated for 5-7 years if laminated, but it can vary to longer or shorter lengths based on how well you take care of your wrap.

Cost-benefit
If you have a budget you are trying to work with, we can still help you reach your target audience! Producing the wrap can be made more cost effective by finding areas that we can use the color of the existing vehicle to blend with the wrap. This is a called a half wrap. We offer- Full Wraps, half Wraps, Partial Wraps, and Fleet Lettering.

Impressions
According to the Transportation Advertising Council, vehicle advertising generates between 15,000 – 70,000 vehicular impressions per day.
Paint protection

Vehicle wraps protect paintwork against sun damage, minor abrasions and small stone chips. The vinyl can also be removed after the promotion or vehicle turnover, leaving the original paintwork in the same condition it was before it was covered.

Impact
Unlike traditional forms of outdoor advertising, vehicle advertising goes to where the people are. If you find that you're having a slow month move your vehicle to a parking lot that is well traveled. People will notice you!
