By the early 80s, we’d printed our first catalog and went on to win numerous nationally recognized accolades for its artistry – including the prestigious Gold Award for Excellence & Achievement in Catalog Marketing from Catalog Age magazine.

And, on March 18, 1989 — a very BIG day — we fully entered the digital age, with our first mainframe computer. It had a fraction of the storage and power of an iPhone, but was so big it took up an entire room (if you’re old enough to remember, think: “6 Million Dollar Man,” or something very much like this)! Seriously. Awesome.

Fun Fact: Steve was so proud of the mainframe computer, that he installed windows in the doors to the room, so passersby could ogle it.
