Owosso Graphic Arts Is Pleased to Announce New Ownership —
Owosso Graphic Arts (OWOSSO) has transitioned ownership to Craig Ellenberg.
It has always been Craig’s goal to own OWOSSO and he finally achieved that goal on July 30, 2017. An employee of the company since 1982, and Plant Manager for the last 15 years the transition to ownership was seamless.
Owosso Graphic Arts was founded in 1949 by Ken Bentley. After Mr. Bentley died in a car/train accident the company was purchased by Jerry Voight in 1965. Over the years our strong management team has grown the company to be a leader in the industry by diversifying in many different markets, while never losing sight of our core values of quality, service, honesty and integrity.
The future of OWOSSO looks very bright as we welcome Craig’s two sons, Devin & Max, to the company. Both worked at OWOSSO previously and are excited to once again join the OWOSSO team. “They both have innovative ideas on new products and procedures. And they know the importance of building strong relationships with our customers by providing quality products and service”, said Craig.
Craig also added, “We have a great group of skilled and dedicated employees. I am excited about expanding our line of products and the continued success of OWOSSO.”
Our new website & on-line ordering is more user friendly than ever
If you’ve never used our on-line ordering, or tried it once and didn’t care for it, please give it another look. Placing your order on-line streamlines the entire process for us, and YOU. We get the information we need to make your die and you can keep track of your orders, re-order the same type of die using different artwork, print out your order form, order Make-Ready Supplies and more.
We couldn’t be more excited – it’s like the birth of a new baby and the development is taking just as long! We hope to have it “live” in the near future and that you like the new look, ease of use and improved on-line ordering system.
While I’ve spent hundreds of hours over the years designing and producing custom invitation suites for weddings and parties, I realize not every event has the budget or timeline necessary for bespoke invites.
Selecting and ordering foil stamping and/or embossing engravings may be one of the more routine portions of a job, but there still are many questions that must be answered to make sure everything runs properly. InsideFinishing called upon several experts in the field of engraving to answer commonly asked questions on the subject.
Transform any image onto metal – anything that can be printed on paper can be made on Metalphoto®. Metalphoto® is made from anodized aluminum and produces unparalleled durability, image resolution and readability.
The year, 1949—when the minimum wage was $.70 per hour and a new car cost $1,420. This was also the year that Ken Bentley founded Owosso Graphic Arts.
Mr. Bentley saw an opportunity when he discovered that our local newspaper couldn’t publish photos with late-breaking stories—they just couldn’t get a photoengraving in time. So he borrowed some money from his mother, bought a photoengraver’s “how-to” kit and set up shop right next door.
