Epic Products Founder
Harvey W. Dahlgren

Founded in 1977, Epic has a rich heritage of technological advancements in the printing industry. Epic began by developing and commercializing the first dampening system that virtually eliminates printing defects or “hickeys”. In doing so, the quality and efficiency of offset printing presses were greatly improved. The Epic Delta Dampening System was so advanced that, still today every major press manufacturer incorporates a dampening system based on Epic’s technology.

Epic is also credited for significant innovations in offset and digital coating technologies. Epic was the first company to retrofit an offset printing press with a coater, as well as the first-in-line coater with a sheetfed toner machine and an inkjet web press.

Since its inception, Epic has worked to develop and commercialize products that improve the printing process.
