THE PRINT REACH STORY
In April 2019, the merger of Virtual Systems and PagePath Technologies was announced and Print Reach was formed by two of the strongest pioneers in the industry. Both companies recognized a gap in the industry where an all-in-one ecosystem was desired by both small and large print and marketing companies. Learn more about Print Reach in our video.
