I have devoted my entire 30+ year career to making an impact in the product decoration industry. In 1987 I moved from Buffalo to Charlotte, to launch CPS Resources as a rep organization for Tampoprint America in the Southeast. Shortly after launch, my brother joined me in the Carolinas and we took the industry by storm becoming a lead sales team, nationally. This was all done from humble beginnings out of our 2 bedroom apartment.
Through our sales, we saw an opportunity and a need from our customers for additional services. In 1989 we began our print operations. Now that we were in manufacturing, we expanded into complementary print processes including foil and hot stamp technology.
In 1993 we began building our own hot stamp machinery with the capability to engineer and build sophisticated systems for decoration. By fulfilling our customers machinery and contract decoration needs, we were now a full-service organization. We were now able to go to our customers and tell them how we can take their project from start to finish. Whether they needed equipment, supplies, or just support for production, we were there to help them make money.
I invested in an overseas foil factory in 1997 to develop and manufacture our own films and foils. Over the years we have created many special processes for our customers, secured several print method patents, and have become an industry leader in foil technology. As our product line expanded, so did our need for space.
2000 saw us complete construction and move into the corporate headquarters that we operate out of today. Through continuous year-on-year growth we became a leader in the window fashions industry. We have served many other markets over the years from Fortune 500 companies down to local businesses, always addressing their product decoration needs.
Innovative Digital Systems was founded in 2010 in response to digital becoming a viable decoration process for the industrial market. This was once again seen as a complimentary process to our other services.
We launched DigitalPrinSupplies.com in 2012 to provide digital supplies nationwide on an easy-to-use ecommerce platform. As a Mimaki distributor, we were able to service a wide market for all their digital printing needs.
In 2018, I purchased another building to house storage of incoming product from our customers. As we continue to expand, our corporate facility will be dedicated to our manufacturing operations.
The future of our company is as bright as ever, and I hope that we can partner together to serve your decoration needs. Whatever those needs are, you can rely on us because as our mantra says: Decoration Is All We Do.
Innovative Digital Systems was build on a foundation of creating high quality decorated products for our customers. We have a strong commitment to satisfying our customer’s needs, while remaining socially and environmentally conscious.
We strive to minimize the negative impact our industry has on the environment, while remaining profitable. We accomplish this through community involvement and a variety of environmental programs that we have established throughout the years. Through these initiatives, we ensure that our employees are safe and comfortable and that our customer’s orders and expectations are fulfilled.
