Company History

Logo

   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 our current location.
   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. Recently we partnered with Proforma to further enhance our product line and purchasing power. Proforma is a leader in the printing, promotional products and packaging industries with a creative edge to add impact and value to our programs. As your agency without the agency fees, we provide the most innovative and cutting edge product and service solutions under our new name ABC Printing Company / powered by Proforma.
   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.

   We invite you to consider using our printing firm 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.
