American Slide-Chart/Perrygraf History

About Our Company

American Slide-Chart/Perrygraf has been the leader in the slide chart field for over 80 years. Initially, slide charts were heavily technical, math-based tools, which operated on the principle of a slide rule. Our customers were mainly from industrial fields with technical information best handled by complicated math formulas. Slide charts and wheel charts were the perfect, portable, light-weight, informational tool in the era of the 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s. Printed and manufactured on paperboard or plastic, they were also affordable to a broad range of companies.


As the advertising world expanded in the 60s and 70s, so did our customer base. Promotional pieces were more in demand, and American Slide-Chart/Perrygraf was ready to incorporate promotional pieces into its production repertoire, along with the more traditional slide charts and wheel charts. With a skilled design staff that acquired the needed computer skills to design “on screen”, rather than on the drafting table, and with a complete in-house printing, and manufacturing staff and facility, American Slide-Chart/Perrygraf remained competitive as it moved into the 80s. In the 90s, American Slide-Chart/Perrygraf added 3-dimensional promotional pieces to its product base, and expanded its manufacturing facility.


As we have moved into the new millennium, the high quality of our product has remained a company-wide priority along with our customers’ needs and satisfaction. From sales, to design, to printing and manufacturing we have a seasoned, talented staff, working in a “craft shop” atmosphere that takes great pride in producing high quality and original slide charts, wheel charts, pop ups, and rubber band activated promotional pieces.
