New Wave began when Cathy Donovan and her husband, the late Michael Donovan, moved to Ocean City in 1979 and opened the Village Barn, a home accessories store, in the 45th Street Village. The couple was not using the loft space above the store when it was suggested to them that they get involved in the T-shirt business. The Donovans attended a screen printing trade show that winter. New Wave opened in the loft in the spring of 1980. The pair ran the wholesale business with only one employee, artist Scott Harrington. Their first customer was the Bearded Clam on Wicomico Street in Ocean City, and the bar is still a loyal client of New Wave to this day.
In 2012, Cathys daughter Colleen and Colleens husband Matt joined the New Wave business and began expanding. Currently, the business is growing each year and the company has hired several employees to assist with the many new accounts that New Wave services.
What started out as a unique way to display surf photos in 2012 has grown to become a premier sign and CNC manufacturing company specializing in custom wood, acrylic, and aluminum prints for both retail and commercial customers. Located in West Ocean City with a state of the art UV flatbed printer and CNC machine in-house, Plak That is a destination for custom wood prints, custom trophies and awards, and commercial interior and exterior signage. Plak That’s diverse portfolio of work has included companies such as Hoop Tea, Cape May Brewing Co., Ish Boutique, K-Coast Surf Shop, and more. Whether you are looking for a personalized piece of home decor, point of sale displays for your products, or a large commercial sign for your business, Plak That’s team of 6 employees (and a couple dogs) will help you design and create exactly what you need.
