William and Priscilla Mitten founded The Windsor Press in the basement of their home in 1958. With the aid of a small A.B. Dick offset duplicator, a typewriter, folder, collator and a small headline machine, the Hamburg Shopping Center Guide, with a circulation of 5,000 copies, was born.

In 1960, a second shopping guide was published in the Kutztown Area with a circulation of 8,000 copies.

As the business grew, the MittenÂ’s purchased an old beer distributing building in historic downtown Hamburg in 1968 and moved out of their basement

Over the years, customer demand led to the addition of commercial printing and outside advertising design services.

On March 24, 2009 a fire devistated Hamburg and Our Company. Like a Phoenix rising from the ashes, our team stuck together and did not miss an issue. For photos of the fire and our rebuilding process, click on the fire button.

As technology progressed, out-dated equipment was replaced with a full line of Macintosh computers, graphics software, digital printing and web offset capabilities.

Today, the Northern Berks Merchandiser and the East Penn Valley Merchandiser, with a combined circulation of over 71,000 copies, continue to be produced weekly and are distributed free in northern and northeastern Berks, southern Schuylkill and western Lehigh counties.

With a dedicated, professional and creative staff we stand ready to provide you and your business with a full line of advertising design and printing services.

Locally owned and independently operated at 6 North Third St. in historic downtown Hamburg, we look forward to working with you.
