Humble Beginnings Lead to Great Things

Our company was founded in 1953 by Clarence W. Schawk as a one-man platemaking business in the basement of his aunt's suburban Chicago home.

Today, we’re thousands of employees strong. We operate across five continents. And we’re brand partners to a client roster that includes the world’s biggest companies and most iconic brands. Together with our parent company SGK, we’re relied upon to efficiently deliver consistent brand experiences that enhance consumer desire and make brands more profitable.
