Art Advertising, Jonesboro, Arkansas, was founded in 1969, opening its doors as Art Sign Company. Transitioning into screen-printed graphics in the 1970s, the sign division was sold off in 1980 and the company became Art Adverting focusing solely on industrial labels and other screen-printed products.
The company’s growth across a broader range of industries necessitated moving into a new building in 1985. Stacy and Gary Gestring, owners of Art Advertising, have welcomed the Domino N610i, the company’s first digital narrow web press.
Over the next decade, Art Advertising’s offering would expand to include flexographic roll labels and traditional offset printing, still catering to the needs of regional, industrial clients.
In 1995, Stacy & Gary Gestring joined the business and began efforts to accelerate growth. Their customer base expanded nationwide as they continued to add new products and services.
In 2007, the company relocated to its current location. Since then, the company has added another 10,000-square-foot building to house its wide format division, bringing them full circle to be able to offer larger outdoor sign products again. Today with more than 28,000 square feet of production across two facilities, Art Advertising continues to diversify. In December 2023, Art Advertising added its first digital narrow web press, the Domino N610i7-color digital UV inkjet label press.
“We are most excited by the greater efficiency and new markets we’ll be able to pursue with the Domino,” said Gary Gestring. “We’ve been mainly focused on long-term outdoor durable markets. The Domino will greatly increase our competitiveness in short term durability and consumer goods markets.”
