50+ years ago!
ABC Printing Company opened for business in 1963 as ABC Business Forms, Inc. Our founder, William Strauss, began with business documents, labels and some color work. Current owners RJ and Steve Strauss, the founders 2 sons, took over our company in 1983.
ABC Business Forms, Inc (as it was then known) was originally located at 5481 N Milwaukee Ave., Chicago IL. The company later moved to 5778 N Elston Ave and was there for nearly 30 years before moving to 5654 N Elston Ave.
Soon after purchasing the business, both brothers decided to change its name. ABC Business Forms, Inc. had served the company well, but Steve and RJ wanted to create a more relative brand with ties to our past. ABC was the unique portion of our original name the kept, they chose ABC Printing Co. and began marketing the company under that name in 1985.
Under RJ's leadership, ABC Printing Co. was proud to have made Printers Magazines "Top 100" printing firms nationally during the 1980s, 90's and till this day. Most of our success and notoriety was a direct result of our super-fast turnaround and our "on-time-or-it's-free" guarantee.
At a time when most printing firms took three and four weeks to print an envelope order, ABC would commonly print envelopes within two. Our quality, diversity and personalized service was what our clients wanted and deserved.
It seems like every company talks about the importance of customer service, but one of the lasting cornerstones of our business is the way our customers feel about doing business with us. Our dependability and reliability have become very renowned. When you work fast, hardly ever miss a deadline, have fair prices, and treat people with dignity and respect it's hard not to grow your business. That's what we do, and ABC Printing Company and currently have over 2500 active customers nationwide.
We invite you to consider using us the next time your company needs printing and or promotional items. There's a reason why we have kept many business customers for more 20 years or longer, and we would love the opportunity to demonstrate that for you on your next printing order. You see, we do things very differently than the other printers in our community, and we believe we can provide the best all-around experience for you if you'll give us a try.
