Bulldog Digital Imaging Products, Inc. - 1/23/2008
Jim Manelski Acquires BullDog Products from John Doe
Chino, CA. 1/23/2008 - BullDog Products, a distributor of high quality wide format specialty media, inks, and
coatings, targeted at the fine art and décor printing markets announced today that it has been acquired by Jim
Manelski, current president of BullDog Products. The new company, BullDog Digital Imaging Products (BullDog),
will continue doing business as BullDog Products from the current headquarters in Chino, CA. The business
was acquired from the original founder John Doe, who will continue to own and operate Harvest Productions,
which was an affiliated sister company. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
Jim Manelski stated, "Over the years, our affiliation with Harvest Productions has served us well. As a specialty
distributor of supplies formed at the infancy of the emerging Giclée industry, our entire focus has been on
developing, improving, and optimizing the products needed by Harvest and other early pioneers in the digital
art reproduction industry. In our experience, we have learned the vital need to continually refine our products
in order to keep pace with rapid changes in print technology as well as the increasing quality and productivity
expectations in user demand. As an independent company, we will be able to enhance our energy and focus to
provide the highest quality imaging products to a broader market of wide format printers who seek to produce
high quality art, murals, and photographic imagery. Collaborating with our key strategic partners, we have several
exciting new products poised to launch in 2008. This will add to our existing world class portfolio of BullDog
canvas materials (Platinum Dot, Green Dot, Orange Dot), our BullDog Ultra Coating and BullDog Inks. BullDog
customers can feel ensured that they will be able to continue to source this family of product, without interruption
and with the quality and consistency that they have come to expect from the BullDog name."
"Bulldog will continue its focus on the needs of the art and professional photo industry with high quality specialty
media, coatings and inks. We look forward to growing with our customers as we continue to serve their needs
throughout North America and globally. "
