Design firm MLAD considering opening retail store

2014_01_22 - MLAD hp environmentM.L. Advertising and Design (MLAD) was founded by Mark Levans in 1979. It has grown from a one-person graphic design firm into a company of six dedicated professionals that provides a wide assortment of graphic design services, large format printing, printing services, and advertising promotions and specialties. This creative company is located in historic downtown Tiffin in two beautifully restored, turn-of-the-century Victorian homes and has made several investments in the last two years into state-of-the art printers and routers (see pictures below).  In 2010, they also acquired Dell’s Precision Printing, another local business, and significantly grew their customer base.

Currently, MLAD is currently working with Seneca Regional Chamber to survey the business community to see if there would be a strong enough demand to open a specialty paper retail side of the business–wide selection of colors, weights and stock, brightness, etc. We thought we would lend a hand and help spread the word. Regardless of whether MLAD offers this or not, their continual expansion and investment into both the downtown and their business, their commitment to the arts and the downtown, as well as their 40+ year history clearly makes them another Seneca Success.

From Mark: “We are conducting a survey to see if it is feasible for MLAD to open a retail paper store. We would stock bonds, writing, cover and specialty stock along with a variety of envelopes. Quantities would vary from product to product. Although MLAD may not be able to offer a solution to every product or projected need, this may be a service that would be better served in Tiffin and Seneca County than traveling to another city. Your survey can be taken anonymously and will only take a few minutes.
