Our Story

In 1865, Abraham Lincoln was in office, The Civil War was ending, and David Weil was starting up a lithographic company in New York City. Soon after, our great-grandfather, Charles Staib became a principal managing partner, and the rest is history.

156 years later, here we are – fourth generation owners committed to keeping the legacy alive. Committed to the pioneers who came before us, to always be at the forefront, mastering our craft and using our own hearts, minds, and hands to create greatness.

Our purpose is to help actualize your vision, to help tell your story, and to become a part of your legacy.


It is with the heaviest of hearts that I share with you all the news that my lifelong hero, my best friend, business partner of 30 years and brother, Tom, passed away suddenly this past year. The loss is immeasurable to the Staib family and to the entire DWS family.

Tom left some very big shoes to fill, and I, along with the support of the DWS team will see to it that we continue to honor the DWS Legacy, and Tom’s legacy, by moving the company forward. Tom and I had a motto – Failure is Not An Option – and we will see to it that DWS continues to succeed, in his honor.

Tom has always been, and will always be my hero.

– Andy
