Scott Vaughn and Don Blyler

Our mission is to simplify the art of communication for our customers, clients and partners, and Donald Blyler Offset fits squarely into achieving that mission.

The Standard Group, headquartered in Reading PA, has announced the acquisition of Donald Blyler Offset (DBO) of Lebanon, PA. Both companies have deep roots in the printing industry, while also demonstrating success at growing, changing and expanding to meet the full service and value-added needs of today’s customers.

Scott Vaughn, CEO of the $26 million Standard Group said, “Our mission is to simplify the art of communication for our customers, clients and partners, and Donald Blyler Offset fits squarely into achieving that mission.”

Added Vaughn, “We’ve admired the company, the way it treats its customers and employees, and the high quality of products it produces for a long time. The addition of DBO to the Standard Group is a great fit.”

Donald Blyler, Owner of DBO echoed Vaughn’s comments. “"Over the years I have turned down several opportunities for a sale or merger with very good printing companies because they were not the right partner for us. However that all changed when I toured The Standard Group, met their key people and had the chance to learn about the future direction of the company. I'm excited by what this opportunity represents for my employees and customers.

DBO, which over the years has received several prestigious honors including two Printer of the Year for SAPPI Mid-Atlantic in 2000 and 2004 and the Top Businessman Award from the Small Business Association of Eastern Pennsylvania, will continue to operate as a stand-alone organization for the foreseeable future, according to Vaughn.
