From our “garage band” roots, when the Yerecic family began manufacturing labels out of the garage of their home, to our current state of the art, cellular process, industry innovating facility, we have grown quite a bit over the last 50 years.
While many things have changed, others have stayed the same; our love for printing, our family roots & our commitment to serve at the Speed of Fresh®.
How do we maximize efficiency and quality? With our winning cellular concept.
Our focus on lean manufacturing led to the creation of cellular teams in the office area. Each team includes a Key Account Manager, Sales Coordinator and Graphic Designer to create a strong unit focused on supporting your products’ needs. Your go-to team helps save you time and energy whenever you need to contact us!
On the production floor, your project goes from raw material, to finished labels in a case, on a skid, and ready to ship in a continuous flow. We have streamlined our production process so we don’t waste time, energy or materials, giving you the highest quality product at the best possible value with an overall goal of exceeding your expectations!
