Catalog / Website History
When De Nunzio Racing Products first
opened its doors in the late 1970's, one of our first
priorities was to publish a catalog. Our first catalog
was a paste-up done by Sylvia, a local high school
student. It had 50 pages, we stapled it together,
it had no hard cover, and we printed it on our own
copy machine. As sales increased, we invested in a
full color hard cover, added pages and advanced from
staples to brass fasteners. Other than the hard cover,
we still printed the catalog on our own copy machine.
|In the middle 1980's,
we designed a new cover, added more 'paste-up'
pages and still printed the catalog ourselves.
With the advent of the computer age, in the
later 1990's we decided to put our catalog on-line.
We hired local college students to convert the
paste-ups to PDF files, but lacked the technical
expertise to develop a web site. One of the
students' fathers did site development, so we
Our first site, which was not much more
than our hard-copy-catalog on-line, was developed
and maintained by Jon Moynes. Jon maintained the site
for about 4 years until he went on to pursue other
Not much happened on the site until
2001, when we realized we needed to convert our static,
PDF site, to a dynamic buy-on-line site. To develop
the new site, we hired mbbdesign to redesign and launch
the new site.
After the new site was launched, it
became apparent that the level of continuing improvements
and daily changes required the efforts of an in-house
webmaster. Effective August 2002, we hired Gregory
Graphics to be our in-house webmaster.
