Mission Statement

The mission of MONTCO ADVERTISING SPECIALTIES, INC.is to create and manufacture advertising and promotional products of the highest quality and to provide our distributor-partners with exceptional service.  We consider the adherence to the highest ethical standards of conduct our greatest governing parameter in our pursuit of these goals.

Company History

              The Company was founded in 1972 by Edwin Curson to serve the needs of political candidates and their campaigns.  In 1981 the Company entered the promotional products industry as a supplier of printed products and joined the Advertising Specialties Institute (ASI).  In 1994, with the advent of the digital printing technology, the Company converted from offset printing to digital printing.  This enabled the Company to provide customers with high quality, full-color products quickly and without the normal up front per-color separations and screen costs.

            In 2001 the Company was acquired by Michael Lorah.  Under his leadership the Company significantly expanded its product line to better serve our distributor-partners.  In 2004 the Company began to sell imported Metal Products (Lapel Pins, Coins & Medallions, Key Tags, etc.) providing an alternative to the Celluloid Button line.

In 2006 Montco added the new digital “Direct-to-Fabric printing technology, opening the door to decorating wearables with full-color images at lower quantities.  Initially Direct-to-Fabric was limited to white garments only but in 2010 the equipment was upgraded to enable printing on dark fabrics as well.

            In  2013 Montco began to produce and sell U.S. made Metal Products for those distributor-partners and their customers with high quality products that support the U.S. economy.  That same year Absorbent Coasters were added to the product line.

            Finally, in 2014 Corrugated and Card Signs were added as well as Static Cling Decals, Table Tents, and Catalogs and Brochures. 

            Now, as in the past, the Company remains committed to providing distributors with the finest in full color promotional products and exceptional service.
