A-Z Advertising began in 1980 as a distributor of promotional products. When president Mary Anne Wassel purchased the business in 1990, she quickly saw a need in the Lancaster community for a company that could silkscreen and embroider apparel on-site. Having an in-house production facility allowed A-Z maximum control over quality and turnaround time, and the company quickly became one of the most highly regarded providers of custom imprinted goods in the area.
In 2001, A-Z Advertising moved to the current location at 961 Stony Battery Road; the new building offered more production space, more offices to accommodate a growing staff, and a full-sized showroom. A new six head embroidery machine gave A-Z the ability to complete a growing number of orders on time and with added precision.
A-Z currently offers complete graphic design services, online company store programs, a searchable online database of available products, and virtual as well as physical spec samples. Account executives at A-Z provide the outstanding service available only through a small company. Calls are returned promptly, a live person always answers the phone, and customers are treated with honesty and respect. Commitment to service and quality has kept A-Z Advertising growing for more than thirty years.
