Charles Dudley Filbey opened a print shop on Mill Street in downtown Akron, Ohio, during the revival of the letterpress in 1909; he was later joined by his stepson “Red” Lauck in 1939. As the years went by, Charles’ printing business expanded; in 1977, the family business relocated to North Union Street.

Past President Bob Lauck Sr. worked at Star Printing for over 50 years and ensured the delivery of exceptional products and outstanding service. His two sons, Bob and Paul Lauck, help maintain the family business today. This third-and fourth-generation continues to uphold high levels of printing service just as Charles Dudley Filbey envisioned over 100 years ago.
