Addressograph - Multigraph Corporation
The Addressograph Company was founded by Joseph S. Duncan in 1896. The company was renamed in 1931 to Addressograph-Multigraph Corporation, and in 1978 to Addressograph-Multigraph International. The company filed for bankruptcy in 1985.

One of the company’s first products was its Dupligraph machine. The machine simultaneously printed the text of a letter (prepared using sliding type), a name and address (using an Addressograph plate), a choice of salutation (Dear Sir or Gentlemen), and a signature (in a different color ink), all at the rate of 800 to 1,200 per hour. In 1927, American Multigraph introduced the Addressing Multigraph, which used metal plates to print addresses and form letters simultaneously.
