Kramer Graphics began as an art production studio in the basement of founder Mary Lou Kramer’s home in 1976. From the beginning, Mary Lou delighted her customers by offering attentive customer service, quick turnaround and state-of-the-art technology. In 1988, Kramer was the first company in the Dayton area to offer digital output from Mac and PC based computers. Throughout the 80’s and 90’s, Kramer grew steadily as we consistently pioneered new digital printing technologies that brought higher quality and more cost-effective solutions for our clients’ indoor and outdoor printing projects. Today, Kramer Graphics is led by Mary Lou’s son and daughter, John and Kelley. Kramer Graphics occupies a 70,000 square foot facility in Dayton, Ohio. Kramer Graphics has more than 80 professionals with a combined experience of over 700 years! For a more detailed timeline, please look below!
