Bill Blechta - President / Founder
38 years and counting, Sun's Jedi-master and his father George started “Sun Silk Screen” in the basement of their home in New York in 1976. Shortly thereafter, the doors opened in Sarasota, FL in 1978. Witnessing many wonderful changes in the Graphics Industry, the company transformed to Sun Screenprinting in 1983 and then to Sun Graphic Technologies in 2007. During his 38 year tenure Bill has been involved in every area of the business, and is very proud of the business he and his team built. The genesis of Sun Graphic Technologies' customer-first philosophy lies deep within its founder and continues to be the driving force in moving the company forward.
