Advertisers Press began in Madison, Wisconsin in 1948 as a small neighborhood printer. Founder, Sam Nuzzo, had just returned from World War II, where he served in the U.S. Air Force. He attended the University of Wisconsin under the G.I. bill and graduated with a degree in journalism. Upon graduation he decided to start his own business in downtown Madison. At its beginning, the company included just three employees. The bulk of the work consisted of letterhead, envelopes, business cards and flyers for neighborhood businesses.
Within the first few years of conception, there was a clear vision developing for Advertisers Press. Family, loyalty, and trust proved to be critical for the success and future success of the business. By the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, a number of Ad Press’s current management staff had joined the company at entry-level positions. Among those employees were Linda and Bill Wild, who have owned the company since 1997. Since that time, they have maintained Sam’s original ideas and themes of work ethic while continuing to grow. This principle, along with dedication, teamwork, and faith has led Advertisers Press to where it is today. Ad Press began as a small, three-person letter shop and has grown into a $30 million operation that services companies around the country. We are among the Top 15 Woman-Owned businesses in Wisconsin today.
Currently, the products and services that Advertisers Press provides for its customers range from business forms, commercial printing, high-volume cut sheets, roll stock, booklet printing, digital printing, fulfillment, warehousing, and more. There are three locations to house the many different operations we have to offer. From beginning to end, the possibilities of what Ad Press can do for its customers are limitless.
