When the right time, right place and right opportunity converge, something special is sure to follow. Such were the circumstances for David Dickey, who recently became the new owner and operator of Allegra Marketing, Print, Mail in Bozeman.

David Dickey, a long-time fan of the Northwest and recent transfer from Florida, purchased Allegra from Dan Himsworth, who retired after serving customers' print and marketing needs for more than 20 years. All employees remain with the company.

Dickey's 20 years of business ownership and background in customer service and support drive his focus of helping local businesses succeed.

"I had been looking for the right opportunity locally, where I could take my professional experience and combine it with helping other businesses grow," said Dickey."The entire team at Allegra is committed to offering expert consultation and support to help area small and mid-sized businesses make the most of their print and marketing efforts to maximize their results and we're excited about the new capabilities we're now able to offer our customers.

"It is our vision to be the leading value-added marketing communications, print and mail provider in the area, helping both our customers and the communities they call home continue to grow," continued Dickey. "I'm proud of this team and the strong roots that have been built in this community. I'm excited about what the future holds for our customers and our team."

In addition to printing and mailing services, Allegra features integrated marketing services, graphic design services, advanced printing technologies including full-color printing, digital color signs, posters and banners, complete finishing services, variable data capabilities and promotional products.

Allegra Bozeman is independently-owned and operated and is a member of Alliance Franchise Brands, one of the world's largest marketing, print and graphics communications franchises, linking nearly 600 locations in North America and the United Kingdom.
