Company History

Bradley Graphic Solutions — 

A family-owned company with a proud history.

As a young student at St. Vincent’s Orphanage in Philadelphia, Robert M. Bradley was given the choice to learn shoemaking or printing. He chose printing…and never looked back.

Robert began his printing career in the late 1950’s as a collator operator at American Business Systems. After gaining more than 25 years of experience, he learned enough about the business to run his own printing company. In 1980, he bought Arrow Printing Company and two years later founded Bradley Business Forms, Inc.

When Robert passed away in 1993, Bradley Business Forms was a $3.5 million company. Business operations were taken over by the second generation of Bradleys', who made the decision to offer high-color direct mail printing with the purchase of a 6-color variable size press. As the company’s capabilities expanded, its name was changed to Bradley Graphic Solutions in 1997.

A key development in the company’s growth occurred in 2000, with the purchase of an 8-color variable sized UV press. This dramatically enhanced the company’s list of services, opened up new markets and fueled a period of stable, consistent growth. Over the years, Bradley Graphic Solutions has continued that growth to include work such as Affixing and Integrating along with their traditional printing. Bradley Graphics will continue to add new presses and upgrading existing equipment to stay connected with the most up-to-date technology. Their client base has also grown through the years to include customers such as Letter Shops, Agencies, Manufacture Reps & Distributors with the shift from business forms to direct mail pieces. 

To this day, all of the company’s growth has been organic — with no mergers or acquisitions. The service philosophy at Bradley Graphics has never wavered over the years. Clients can always expect the kind of personalized and responsive service you only get from a family-owned company.

In memory of Robert M. Bradley (1937-1993)
