Danita Allen Wood | Owner & Editor in Chief
Missouri Life Magazine
I’m Danita Allen Wood and I’m the owner and Editor and Chief of Missouri Life magazine.
We started started printing our magazine more than than ten years ago with with Ovid Bell, and we’ve been with them ever since.
We came to Ovid Bell because we were impressed with the quality, and then they had a very good price, and also because of their proximity to us. But over the years, we’ve checked with other printers – doing due diligence just to behoove our company and find out if we’re getting the best price. No one, absolutely no one, has ever been able to touch Ovid Bell.
Ovid Bell Press is a true partner with us. Last year we had a horrible mistake that we made with our mailing list, and it could have been a really expensive, disastrous mistake for us. They jumped into action – some people were traveling, they answered our calls, they knew we were fretting, they found solutions, and we got the the issue resolved.
Just our last issue on deadline day, the day we were suppose to approve our files, we started second guessing our logo color. They went the extra mile to give us two or three different color ideas, options. We feel like they cared about our logo as much as we do. We really feel like they’re our partners.

Sal Cincotta | Publisher & Editor in Chief
"They care about our success, and they're willing to do anything to help us succeed.
My name is Sal Cincotta and I am the Publisher and Editor in Chief of Shutter Magazine. Four years ago, we started Shutter Magazine as a digital publication but we quickly realized the need for something tangible and tactile. Consumers want something in their hands that they can flip through. So contrary to popular belief, print is not dead.
About two years ago, we met with Ovid Bell Press to talk about our vision and bringing this to life. We had no idea what the print process looked like. We were completely amateur in this respect. Ovid Bell Press took us through every step of the process to ensure that we understood this new world of print media and we’ve been with them ever since.
What I like most about working with OBP is the level of relationship and commitment from them. When they come out to our studio they care about our business, they care about our growth, they care about our success and they’re willing to do anything to help us succeed.
When we talk about something that might stand out that they’ve done over the years – we’re a photography publication, nothing is more important in our publication than color. So early on in the process, knowing how important color was to us, and seeing how we were struggling getting that color to be perfect, meaning matching from what we were shown them on our computer screen to what that final print was looking like. They brought out a color expert to our studio and they sat side by side with us and ensured that the color was spot on with the final publication. And I gotta tell you, I’ve seen a lot of publications out there where skin doesn’t look the right way – where blues are not blue, and reds are not red, and I’m proud to say that the color gamut inside of Shutter Magazine is what it is today only because of the dedication and commitment of the staff and team at OBP. That is a true business partner and without them, our magazine would not be where it is today.

Justin Williams | Publisher & CEO
North & South Brunswick Magazine
My name is Justin Williams and I’m the Publisher and CEO of North and South Brunswick Magazine.
I chose to work with Ovid Bell Press because I met with David O’Donley back in 2008, we went out for coffee he seemed like a really straight shooter, down-to-earth type of guy. In addition to that, after he quoted my product, the pricing was competitive, the quality was great, and after seeing the quality of the samples of products, I knew that Ovid Bell Press was the company for me.
What I like working with Ovid Bell Press is, the people here are just great, they seem to have your best interests in mind, and they seem to be always looking out for you as the customer.
One moment that stands out to me, working with Ovid Bell Press is, I had a particular edition where I’d overpaid on my shipping costs and my sales rep, Shannon Sparks, called me and said “You know, you overpaid,” so I received a credit and and a lot of companies just don’t do that. I just appreciated the honesty and integrity of this group of individuals that are just so awesome to deal with. And that’s why I choose to keep my business with Ovid Bell Press.
