Founded in 1981, Thomas and Adrienne Myers opened Art & Negative Graphics as a prepress trade shop in a small garage located in Hyattsville, MD. Since then we have become a leader in helping our customers reach their marketing goals. Here are just a few of the milestones we have reached so far in our desire to become the regions' leader in marketing support services:

2014
Art & Negative received a clean SOC2 report from the AICPA. This report identifies Art & Negative as having the resources, policies, and procedures in place to ensure the environment is as safe as possible for your secure printing needs.

2013
Art & Negative hired an in-house software developer to build custom websites and automated workflows for our customers.

2011
To respond to our growing direct mail volume, Art & Negative installed an additional 6 station Flowmaster mailing machine with piece recognition cameras and enhanced print heads.

2008
Art & Negative installed a Flowmaster mailing and inserting machine. This machine gives us the ability to insert up to 18 different pieces automatically into a single envelope. We also completely revamped our warehouse, allowing us to fulfill orders much more efficiently. In addition, we acquired a perfect binder, enabling us to provide faster turn-around times on items such as Annual Reports and Directories.

2007
Art & Negative purchased an additional 6 color 40" press and enhanced our digital capabilities with the purchase of a Xerox iGen3 digital press. By the end of the year, we had expanded from 30,000 to 58,000 square feet. This expansion allowed us to accommodate our growing digital printing, mailing, and warehousing clients.

2006
Art & Negative began offering Web2Print solutions, as well as online fulfillment and warehouse management services.

2001
Art & Negative transitioned from a prepress shop to a full service printing company. We moved to our current location in Lanham, MD, featuring brand new, state-of-the-art equipment.

1988
Art & Negative moved to a 10,000 square foot facility in Bladensburg, MD. This move allowed us to further expand our line of services to include color retouching, image manipulation and page assembly, a very new process at the time.

1985
