Before we were Printing Specialist Corporation, we were called Fischer Printing Company. Started by Adolph Fischer, in 1921 on McPhail Street in West Baltimore, the business was passed down to his son, Albert, in the 1940s.
Albert, not having any children of his own, brought in his sister’s sons, Robert and Norman Habicht to help out, and they eventually purchased the business in the late 50s. When Robert's son, Gary came on board in 1970, the business moved and on April 1, 1970, the name was changed to Printing Specialist (so we would show up in the "white pages" of the phonebook under "Printing"). Robert retired in 1980 and coincidentally passed away on April 1, 2005.
Today, Gary's son, Justin is on board, making the fifth generation of printers - 96 years of printing ink... it's in our blood!
