Certifications_logosOur story began in 1983 with our founder, Robert Hale, whom after moving to Dayton, Ohio from the Philippines working a chicken and pig farm, established Dayton Mailing Services, Inc., as a family owned, customer-focused business.

Dayton Mailing Services original headquarters on Keowee St. in Dayton, Ohio. Still houses several production lines and warehousing facilities.

In 2005, Bob’s daughter, Christine Soward, purchased the business she had worked in since its inception. Over the years, she learned every facet of the company that, under her leadership and vision, has grown DMS ink in every way through investment in print, technology, and talent.

Our evolution has included advancement from a simple letter shop to advanced digital, inkjet, web and offset printing as well as a leader in data management and marketing distribution. We have an extensive background in serving a variety of industries from healthcare and insurance to retail and publishing.

Early in 2016, the company moved headquarters and a number of our production operations to a larger facility in Yellow Springs, Ohio.

Today, as DMS ink, our company is still focused on the needs of the customer and continues to innovate by forward thinking while keeping the business grounded as a family organization.

Christine continues to inspire her staff to establish and maintain the company as an industry leader. DMS ink has expanded over the years, including two additional divisions: Barrett Brothers Legal Publishing.
