About ABC Imaging

In 1982, Medi Falsafi created American Blueprinting Company, to provide premium quality reprographic services to the architects, engineers, and contractors. With a background in architecture and an MBA from Harvard Business School, he purchased printing equipment and set up shop.

Medi’s architectural knowledge made it easy for him to understand how to provide print solutions to the building design and construction industries. He grew what was to be a temporary venture into a multimillion dollar business. Today, American Blueprinting Company is known as ABC Imaging.
