Our Four Generation History
Who is Ross Printing?
The Ross family has been providing creative and high-quality printing solutions for generations. It all began with a small stationery store opened by current owner Jeremy Ross’ grandfather, Edward Ross, in New York in the mid-1940s. This solo business became a family endeavor when it was joined full-time by Edward’s son, Stephen, after a stint in the Navy in 1961. Stephen expanded the sales of the business and increased the product line, offering commercial printing services through strategic broker relationships with large print manufacturers. During the 70s and 80s, the Ross family began implementing their own production equipment to have better control over costs and production time. This was all with the intent of providing their customers the best possible value. Stephen Ross sold the business and moved to South Carolina and started a new company, the present Ross Printing, again by brokering printing jobs for their clients.
Current owner Jeremy Ross came into the picture in 1991, after serving in the Army during Operation Desert Storm. Learning all he could about the company his father and grandfather had built, Jeremy began implementing new ideas. He took the company from one that brokered jobs for their clients, relying on other printer’s services, and brought back the presses and equipment necessary to print right there in the Ross Printing facility. This allowed Jeremy to meet his clients’ needs at a service level that would exceed expectations and build stronger customer relationships. Under Jeremy’s leadership and through strategic acquisitions of competitors and complimentary companies, Ross Printing has expanded from 5 to 23 full-time employees with 10,000 square feet of space including their building expansion in late summer 2017. In 2010, Ross Printing expanded it’s product offering and in-house services through the acquisition of Low Country Target Mailing - Charleston’s oldest and most experienced mail service provider. This allowed us to fully encircle our customers’ projects, offering concept and design, through production and finally distribution to specific targeted markets.
All of this, including the acquisition of niche production capabilities like wide format printing and laser cutting and engraving, give us the ability to offer the widest range of products and services in the Low Country.
