In 1878, the Reverend Peter Anstadt founded The Anstadt Company and began to print and publish a Teachers’ Guide for Sunday School. (To add historical perspective, this was two years after the introduction of the telephone and the year before Thomas Edison invented a practical incandescent light.)
As the company grew, Peter’s three sons learned the printing business and, in 1903, Charles P. (representing the second generation) took over as president. Under his leadership Anstadt Printing began offering rubber stamps, stationery, and school and office supplies as well. In 1922, his son Charles B. Anstadt joined the firm.
Charles brought progressive ideas and was quick to incorporate new inventions. He purchased the company’s first offset press in 1946; with this addition the company was able to produce a wide variety of advertising and marketing pieces.
Henry Peter Anstadt and his wife Ann succeeded him, representing the fourth generation of the family running the successful firm. Henry diversified the company’s capabilities with foil stamping and embossing, thermography, and fourcolor process work. He also purchased Printing Plate Craftsmen and renamed the firm Anstadt Printing Craftsmen.
The fifth generation to lead the company consists of Matthew R. Doran and his wife Jennifer, the daughter of Henry Peter. Matt has taken an even broader strategic approach towards the business and has brought forth many new products and marketing services beyond ink on paper. He has invested in the next generation of technology—digital printing—and upgraded to some of the most highly sophisticated printing technologies available in the global market.
Today, Anstadt Communications includes a team of highly talented professionals who are passionate about generating demand.
