Who We Are

Loving (Almost) Every Minute

Founded by Tom Dolan, Bette Newman, and Frank Lopes, Printing Images started production in December 1978 with a simple belief, “They can do better”. From a small shop in Bethesda, Maryland with just a few small presses, the company quickly grew and moved their operation to Rockville, Maryland in 1981 where it currently stands.

In 1983 the company announced its newest arrival: a 17 ton Heidelberg 2-color 29" Speedmaster. By the early nineties we were rockin' big time with the addition of our first 40" 2-color Heidelberg and a full function bindery department. Later, in 1996, Printing Images made the leap to 4 color process printing with the addition of a Heidelberg Speedmaster SM 74, 5-color, and then a new Mitsubishi Diamond 3000R 6-color press (purchased in 2004.)

The next generation to take over the reins of Printing Images came in 2008. Bill Leishear and Bob Newman decided to increase the company's offerings to their main focus – The Clients. Since taking over Bill and Bob have added Mailing/Fulfillment, Web Development, Promotional Products and High End Digital capabilities such as Variable Data and Print-On-Demand.

Our Focus

We try to see every job from our client's perspective — their needs and concerns, and how we can help to not only get it done, but more importantly, to get it right! We constantly seek to improve the experience with each order placed to foster loyalty and trust with our clients. They are our greatest asset.

The Big Kahunas

Bob Newman

You might say printing is in his blood. His mother, Bette Newman, was one of the founding members of Printing Images. At the age of 5, she would take him along on press inspections when she in charge of the pressroom at a large Baltimore Publishing company. From the age of 13 on, with the help of his mother, Bette Dolan, and his stepfather, Tom Dolan (both founding members of Printing Images) he learned all aspect of the business. During his college years he studied business management. After college he had odd jobs but all paths led back to Printing Images. In 1992, it was official, he was a printer and hasn’t looked back!

Bill Leishear

Bill started in the printing biz at a very young age. His father ran a Multilith printing press out of the basement of his house from the mid 70’s and into the late 80’s. After getting a business management degree from James Madison University in 1991, Bill decided to make the move into the commercial printing field and eventually landed at Printing Images in 2003 as an Account Executive. In 2005, he took over the role of Sales Manager and in 2008, he and Bob bought the company with the dream of becoming the go to printing and communications company in the DMV/Baltimore area.
