Bob Metz founded the company early in April of 1995. (Much to the chagrin of his wonderful and supportive wife.) We started out as Stuff 4 Stores, Inc., a broker of point-of-purchase displays for large retail chains, typically 500 or more stores. Stuff 4 Stores, Inc. is a privately held Tennessee chartered "C" corporation located in Memphis, Tennessee. Stuff 4 Stores quickly became the largest broker of point-of-purchase displays in Memphis, Tennessee.
In 1997 Stuff 4 Stores purchased it's first large format digital printer. Within 18 months, Stuff 4 Stores became the largest digital printer in Memphis with seven high end large format digital printing machines producing point-of-purchase displays and graphics.
In 2000, Justin Metz (Bob's oldest son) became a stock holder in Stuff 4 Stores, Inc. Since our business was changing from a broker to a large format digital printer, we decided to change our name to New Tech Graphics, which we felt was a better description of our new line of work in the new technology of large format digital printing. Consequently, New Tech Graphics became our DBA for Stuff 4 Stores, Inc. Over the last several years New Tech Graphics has become the largest banner manufacturer in Memphis shipping banners to all 50 states, and our military bases world wide in seven foreign countries.
In 2006 we tried a test in the industrial safety market, creating banner images and selling banners which encourage American industrial workers to work safely and properly. They are called Safety Banners.
Sales were amazing and in early 2007 we implemented the website SafetyBanners.Org to sell our safety banners online. The web site was wildly successful and today we do business with over 87% of the Fortune 500 companies and have well over 11,000 customers. Furthermore, we are the largest manufacturer of industrial safety banners in the United States.
We have been very fortunate over the years. For our tremendous fortune we thank our wonderful customers world wide.
Today, Justin Metz is running the business. Bob? Well, Bob is partially retired working on marketing and the web site when he is not out on his boat.
