Started in 1955 by Richard A. Percoco, my father as a commercial printing company in
Sarasota, Florida. In 1963 I graduated High School and attended Manatee Jr. College, also
working part time in the print shop.
After 2 years of college I decided working full time printing is what I wanted to do so my
dad and I expanded the business to print NCR business forms throughout the country VIA
mail order. At this time there was no internet, most marketing was mail order. I also had
to serve in the USNR as the Vietnam War was expanding and there was a draft. I served
active duty full time for two years in Norfolk, VA on the Destroyer Tender USS Sierra as a
Fire Control Technician. Also getting married and having a baby girl to bring home.
Getting back to Beachcomber Press was always an objective, I resumed working plus went
back to school part time. In a few years my dad retired and I became full owner of of the
business. We had by now created a very large customer base all over the country with our
NCR forms business. Working for 10 plus years until 1982 I decided to sell the printing business
and enter a new venture, Satellite TV Systems, which I did for the next 25 years, selling
Residential and Commercial Satellite TV systems all over the State of Florida, Central America
and Caribbean. We morphed into a Direct TV Dealer when the small dish systems took over,
again selling system all over the USA VIA Internet.
Retiring in 1995 I have kept busy with other ventures always using the internet to promote and
sell. I now have revamped the Beachcomber Press format into a Kindle Direct Printing
venture. I also have a few other websites one of which is My Baby’s Family.com, marketing
Beachcomber Press is now designing books for children, horse owners and adults. I hope you
