National Reprographics, a large print and imaging firm, renewed its 33,250-square-foot space in the Flatiron.

“It is great to see a company like National Reprographics, which has strong historical roots in New York City’s business sector, remain profitable and strong in this market,” said James Buslik, who, along with Adams & Co. colleague Alan Bonett, brokered the deal. The asking rent was $30 a square foot. Adams & Co. represented both the tenant and the landlord, Forty Four Eighteen Associates.

Originally a blueprinting operation run out of a Union Square loft, the printing company is now the largest in the city. It introduced new technologies, including Megachrom, large-format prints from digital files, to New York.

Mr. Buslik said the 18th Street building, which dates back to 1906, “has been a strong hub for [the company’s] business.”
