Introducing Gallas Label & Decal

November 13, 2012

The Chicago converter, formerly known as Andrews Decal, has rebranded itself.

Andrews Decal Company, a printer of a wide variety of custom labels and decals announces the rebranding of its company to Gallas Label & Decal. The name change reflects the ongoing leadership that helped the Chicago label printer prosper for more than 65 years. Gallas Label & Decal celebrates the launch with a new website at – complete with a fresh design. The same owner, management and representatives will continue in their roles in this family-owned business. The company will retain the same phone number and Chicago location.

"We’re excited about launching Gallas Label & Decal," says Mark Gallas, vice president. “This seamless change rebrands our company and reflects the care and passion we bring to our business. It's a branding challenge we regularly help clients resolve – and now we're doing it for ourselves."

In 1947, Andrews Decal Company was founded and named after one of the partners. Although Andrews left the company in its early years, just like Andrews’ labels, the name stuck. Henry Gallas, the father of the current president merged his own printing company, Gateway Printing, with Andrews Decal Company in 1954. Henry’s son, Gary joined the company in 1978. In 2005, Gary’s son, Mark came onboard.

Historically, Gallas reinvested to grow, improve and strengthen business through equipment acquisitions, facility improvements and training employees. Today, the company prints labels for a variety of markets that include industrial, spirits and health and beauty aids to name a few. Management committed to Lean Manufacturing, ISO 9001:2008 Initiatives and added more than 50 UL approved label constructions to its extensive roster of offerings.  The new identity is another evolution that represents the company’s unique, creative and dynamic culture. In 2013, Gallas looks forward to applying for ISO certification.

“Henry Gallas, my father, was brought into the company early on. His passion for printing technologies and client satisfaction were integral to the company’s success for decades," says Gary Gallas, president. “We look forward to continuing to provide a high level of satisfaction. We're grateful to our clients whose loyalty and business helped us achieve success and longevity. In fact, some of our clients have been doing business with us since the 1950s."
