Making Labels and Decals Since 1971

Dec-O-Art was founded in 1971 by Charles Dosmann. He saw great potential in the production of warning and information labels for the local recreational vehicle & manufactured housing industries. He opened shop in an 800 square foot former neighborhood grocery store hoping to earn enough money to support his family of nine children. His modest goal was soon realized and surpassed. Business increased quickly and Charles' sons Dan, Carl, Tony, and Fred soon joined the company.

The four Dosmann brothers took over the family business upon Charles' retirement in 1988. Under their supervision, the once tiny shop with a single employee now encompasses a 30,000 square foot complex, helps to support more than 60 families, and has built partnerships with a nationwide network of more than a thousand customers. In 2006 Dan retired and Ron, another brother who had been the production manager for 7 years, joined the ownership.

Much has changed since Charles began printing decals in the early seventies, but Dec-O-Art's commitment to excellence has remained a constant guiding force through the years. The Dosmanns attribute Dec-O-Art's success to its employees and customers and have chosen to put teamwork, uncompromising standards of quality and customer service as the highest priorities of their company.

As a result, employees demand quality and enjoy the challenge of attaining ever-higher production and service standards.

The company's goal is not just to meet its customers' needs... it strives to exceed them.
