David Gross, President of Condé Systems

Condé Systems is one of the premier sources for printers, substrates and consumables serving the graphic art, photography, prepress and desktop publishing industries. Founded in 1992 by President David Gross and Vice President Tim Lynn, Condé Systems is a privately held company dedicated to technology development.

The name Condé pays homage to Fort Condé, which was built by the French in the 1700s to defend against attacks on the port city of Mobile, Alabama, home to Condé’s 52,000 square foot corporate headquarters.

Condé Systems’ core mission is to provide high-quality products for business and graphic output solutions which meet and exceed industry expectations. To accomplish this, they partner with key industry manufacturers to provide small businesses and entrepreneurs with superior, cost-effective solutions.

Condé offers numerous exclusive products that have been developed with meticulous attention to quality and utility, such as the new ColorLyte coating. This revolutionary sublimation coating is applied to a growing number of new products, including glass, acrylic and film.

Another key part of the company’s offering is advanced color management solutions and resources that enable customers to learn how to print and press without a lot of trial and error. They take much of the guesswork out of production, with templates, pressing instruction and videos.

Condé’s focus on total customer satisfaction ensures that a team of more than 20 trained sales and marketing professionals manage all aspects of the sales process and help customers grow their businesses and find success. Additionally, Condé provides free technical support for all the products it sells, even during off-hours and on weekends. The goal is to share their expert knowledge, informed guidance and superior customer support at every touchpoint.

At the heart of Condé Systems is David Gross, President and face of the company. Prior to jumping into the product decorating industry and falling in love with sublimation technology, Gross worked as the Vice President of Product Marketing for Quality Micro Systems (QMS). An engineer by trade, Gross learned about sublimation during his tenure at QMS and saw an opportunity to build a company that today hosts more than 75 employees and over 12 departments in Mobile, as well as a west coast warehouse located in La Mirada, California.

Gross’ hard work has paid off over the past 26 years. Condé is a recognized leader in providing innovative products in six key markets: on demand specialty imprinting, pre-press output, signage/wide-format output, color solutions for business, digital imaging, and ID card production. As pioneers of the digital imprinting industry, Condé Systems continues to develop numerous cutting-edge systems and techniques for heat transfer.
