About Guide Book Publishing


  At Guide Book Publishing we strive to continuously offer the best direct-mail communication tool on the market for both congregations and businesses. We are now serving over 1,200 congregations and over 10,000 businesses each year in more than 25 states, and are dedicated to serving the needs of each and every customer.

GBP was founded by Bob Vogt and Jim Masterson on April 2nd, 1991 with the idea to produce a stewardship/directory book for congregations that would be directly mailed into each member's home. They started the business out of their homes, moving into their first office building in 1992. In 1993, GBP purchased their first press equipment and hired their first pressman, who is still with the company today. On June 14th, 1999, GBP moved into its current headquarter building to provide room for more departments, expanded press capabilities, and more storage space.
In January 2004, Bob Vogt bought out Jim Masterson's partnership interest and D.A. Robbins & Bill Fisher became partners with Bob. Together they have continued to build GBP into the leading church communication company it is today through digital presses, full color advertisements and book covers, and interactive online advertising.
