1933 - 1949

The Schenker Company Logo Rollprint's history dates back to October 2, 1933, when Jack Schenker formed the Schenker Printing Company. Located at 1014 W. Fullerton Avenue in Chicago, Illinois, the primary product was sheet-fed printed paper for advertising flyers, letterheads, and other commercial printing.

In 1937, Schenker Printing Company was purchased by Sydney R. Raike. Over the years, the Company added sheet-fed press capacity and expanded its product line into printing of paper packaging materials for chewing gum wrappers, boxes, overwrap, and battery labels.

In 1944, Schenker Printing Company relocated to a 20,000 square foot building at 2301 W. Wabansia Avenue in Chicago, Illinois.

In 1949, with two used flexographic presses and a used slitter, Rollprint Products Corporation opened for business in the 1400 block of Hubbard Street in Chicago. Rollprint was formed as a subsidiary of Schenker Printing Company, to provide the more commercial and faster flexographic printing process.
