Printing

Star Printing has evolved over the past 100 years to remain current with the latest in printing technology. Our prepress department, offset press equipment, digital printing, letterpress and bindery equipment are just a few of the many production channels we utilize to complete client projects. We support commercial, large format, specialty and quick printing specifications, which allow for a wide range of service capabilities.

For years, Star Printing has served corporations, small businesses, advertising and marketing firms and the general public through a variety of services and product support, including die cutting, foil stamping, aqueous coating, short run digital capabilities, embossing, letter press, UV coating, gluing and folding.

Packaging

In addition to our printing services, another capability we are proud to offer is our fully customizable packaging solutions. Whether your product requires physical protection, brand development for improved consumer awareness or sturdy presentation, we have the ability to create and personalize durable packaging that increases sales and builds your brand.

You have only moments to capture consumers’ attention. Ensure that your packaging has the power to connect with hearts and minds by utilizing our expertise in customizing point-of-purchase and end cap displays that increase consumer awareness and promote growth by presenting your product in a professional, branded manner.

Our capabilities enable us to mechanically apply glue to packaging instead of applying by hand. This allows us to create durable packaging solutions with faster turnaround so your product is on the shelves and in front of customers as quickly as possible. If you have a project that needs special packaging — Star Printing is up for the challenge!
