ABSTRACT
The article reports that the time-tested, U.S.-born design application called Decorolac is one of the reasons Guy Chaddock has been able to compete with Chinese goods in the U.S. According to Darrell Ferguson, partner and cofounder of Guy Chaddock parent Ferguson Copeland, the technique dates back to George Coffin, the Jamestown, New York craftsman of the late 1950s. Guy Chaddock was able to create custom images through the Decorolac process.
