About Us

Founded in 1978, we’ve built our business on the foundation that our people really do make the difference. We are customer-focused and responsive to individual needs.

With four plant locations, three in Wisconsin and one in South Carolina, we are able to provide Flexographic and digital printing solutions to customers around the country. Our Flexographic department takes care of our customer’s higher volume projects by bringing these packaging solutions to market with our consulting efforts and reliability. And our Digital department can turn around a project in as little as a single day and deals with orders as small as one product, while offering complete customer satisfaction with superb project management and production quality materials.

As a customer and solutions centered company, we have come to learn and adapt to what our customers need and are looking for in their packaging solutions provider. On behalf of all of us at CL&D, I thank you for taking the time to visit our website. We look forward to building your brands through packaging.

Certifications & Awards

CL&D is GMP certified by the American Sanitation Institute (ASI) to print food contact packaging and non-food contact packaging. GMP regulates the requirements for food processing, handling and storage according to strict Food and Drug Administration (FDA) standards. Our certification means our packaging is acceptable to use in a facility that produces food products and can directly touch food surfaces.

At CL&D we're proud to say that we have won several awards for our packaging and printing techniques. We have been receiving awards for over 30 years, so don't mind us if we show off a little here.
