Over 30 Years of Posterservice Inc.
Our company began as a small business selling fine art prints through poster racks in Baltimore, Maryland. Founded in 1982 as a small art and print retailer Galleri Suisse, the company had only about 15 accounts when the owners decided to move and offered their business for sale. Our current CEO decided to purchase and run the business, renaming it Posterservice Inc.
Our reputation for fair treatment of customers, fast shipping, a large selection, and a sensible return policy fueled another growth period. Posterservice introduced the Rack Track program, which was received by customers with great enthusiasm. That program is now regarded as the best in the business.
Posterservice added new sales representatives to fully service the needs of clients nationwide. Over 30 representatives currently sell our extensive line to retail buyers across the United States.
We added a new line of imported art prints in late 1988 to satisfy customer requests for higher-margined art. Experiencing excellent acceptance by our customers, we expanded the line a year later, and it is now one of our major product lines.
To better serve an expanded national market, Posterservice relocated all manufacturing, warehousing, distribution, inside sales, and customer service operations to a larger and more centralized location in Cincinnati, Ohio, in April 1990. We’ve continued growing ever since, and now also manufacture and sell frames through the same location called Frame USA.
