As the technology of the 1970’s revolutionized the home, it also played a huge role
in evolution of Sandy Alexander. In 1970, Sandy Alexander was awarded a patent
for the Unibacker Take One device and set up a distribution facility for consumer
product companies’ displays and sales aids. In 1972, Sandy Alexander installed first
Sigmagraph image manipulation machine and system and first Mailander four-color
rotary proof press.
Explosive growth was the status quo as Sandy Alexander merged with Mel Gordon’s
Admiral Press and then merged with Frank Stillo and Hal Fogel’s Carnival Press.
The decade ended with a partnership between Sandy Alexander and Elston Howard
Printing. Two long term relationships also began in the 1970’s with the acquisition
of Sandy Alexander by Mickleberry and a joint venture between Shindo Tokyo and
Sandy Alexander, beginning of our prepress department.
