Ithaca, NY—Dataflow, Inc., headquartered in Binghamton, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Gnomon Copy of Ithaca. Gnomon Copy has been a part of the Ithaca printing scene for more than 40 years and offers a broad range of print products with a focus on small-format color printing. The merged companies plan to expand Gnomon Copy’s offerings even further, adding more large format products and services to its list of current offerings and improving their digital capabilities to allow for easy online ordering. Gnomon Copy will retain its name but will move down the street into Dataflow’s location at 306 S. Meadow St.
“When the opportunity presented itself, acquiring Gnomon Copy was an easy decision,” said Dan Zimmerman, president and CEO of Dataflow. “Gnomon has been a well-respected company in our industry for years. We share similar cultures, business practices, and service-based values, and so I expect this transition to be an easy one.” According to Zimmerman, Dataflow intends to retain all staff members of the newly acquired company and Gnomon’s previous owner, Ed Enstine, will remain involved as well.
Since its founding in 1958, Dataflow has shown steady growth both geographically and technologically. Beginning as a small blueprinting shop, Dataflow is now a full-service print and document management company offering a wide range of products and services, from large format color printing, branded materials, and hard material sign fabrication to scanning and digital document workflows.
“Adding Gnomon means we’ll be better able to serve our clients,” commented Steve Cheek, Dataflow’s chief commerce officer. “It’s a win for everyone. We’ve improved our coverage, and Gnomon’s clients get access to more products and, most importantly, easy, reliable online ordering services.”
Dataflow’s flagship online product, THIINK Hub Web-2-Print branding, allows clients to easily order branded materials, printed products, and more online, and also allows them to cache oft-ordered products and designs to enable simple and consistent reprints. Beyond their online services, Dataflow offers a variety of branding tools and products from traditional print and mailing services, to apparel and promotional items.
“We like to offer a blend of modern online convenience and old-fashioned personal service,” says Cheek. “Regardless of how our clients prefer to market themselves, we’re able to support them.”
