First Impression

All we started out with was $5,000 and a whole heap of ambition. Heck, the $5,000 was a loan…But, it was enough to rent a few thousand square feet of shared space in an Elk Grove Village, IL warehouse and to purchase our first piece of equipment – a used, 1-Color, 32” cylinder press. That was 1976.

But let’s back up a quick second. First impressions are important and you should know that Graph-Pak did not happen by chance. Our founder, John Hewitt, is a 1971 graduate from Rochester Institute of Technology with a degree in Print Management. The right combination of technical skills and business savvy allowed him to quickly take advantage of an opportunity he saw in the short-run, custom folding carton market. Selling for Graph-Pak during the day, and working for the US Messenger Service at night, John was determined to succeed and it wasn’t too long before Graph-Pak’s growth required his full attention.

Since then, we’ve outgrown 4 locations and have moved into a 93,000 sq. ft. building that houses our manufacturing operations, opened a 65,000 sq. ft. Distribution Center, and most recently entered the large format market with the purchase of a 56” printing press and matching die-cutter.

But despite our growth, business has been by no means easy. Often times, we slept at the office and were working when our friends were out having fun. But we were having fun too, just a different kind of fun.

After 33 years, we’re very proud of the fact that we still have many of our original customers and employees. We’re not the same company that we were in 1976, but we believe we are an exceptional team that works hard to do things the right way, have fun doing it, and make it painless for you.
