Condé Systems Inc. — a supplier of sublimation and digital heat transfer equipment, supplies, imprintable products, and education — celebrates its 30th anniversary this year.
Condé Systems was originally a manufacturer and distributor of laser and color thermal transfer printers. David Gross, president of Condé, decided early on to experiment with a then fairly unknown decorating technology called dye-sublimation transfer. Soon, sublimation and heat transfer emerged as the primary focus of the company. Today, Condé Systems has grown to take its place in the sublimation and digital heat transfer industries.
“When we opened the business in 1992, sublimation transfer was still a well-kept secret in the personalized products industry,” says Gross. “For three decades, we have strived to make sublimation a household word by providing our clients the superior resources needed to be successful at this increasingly popular, exciting, and profitable decorating technology.”
When asked about the future of Condé, Gross tells GRAPHICS PRO, “I am in the process of converting our company to an ESOP, which means our employees will own our company. This makes everyone a stakeholder in Condé, motivating each person to continue our company’s success!”
“2022 is going to be an exciting year for Condé,” continues Gross. “I am very excited about the addition of our new East Coast distribution warehouse in Rhode Island that will help provide lower shipping costs and faster transit time to our valued customers in the Northeast. I’m also thrilled to be releasing ‘The Road to Sublimation Success: Creative Tips, Tricks, Hacks, and Secrets Revealed’, my newest book on the topic of sublimation transfer.”
