When the empire of what is now Graphic Products, an award-winning global leader in visual communication solutions for compliance and safety, started in 1970 it was with humble beginnings. There were just two employees: Claire and Ed Smart. The couple diligently worked out of the basement of their modest Oregon home. With customer service as its founding principle, Graphic Products remains an independent, trustworthy, and professional industrial label and sign printer manufacturer and company for all makes and models of the DuraLabel brand of equipment and supplies. As Graphic Products celebrates this exciting business and personal milestone, the company thanks you for being valued customers. Graphic Products is grateful for the pleasure of serving you and meeting your industrial workplace needs.
