"We are pleased to announce the acquisition of Duffie Graphics' customer files and look forward to servicing their customers with high-quality products and services, as well as assist them with any support or questions they have during the transition period," said Dale Donati, vice president of Ennis' print segment.

"By filling all orders through our PrintXcel facility, we will be able to keep current Goodwin customers satisfied by offering the same level of quality and service they have been accustomed to," said Terry Pennington, Ennis' vice president of sales. "Making this transition as easy as possible for the current customers is our main priority."
