The ability to consistently produce quality printed materials at reasonable prices is the cornerstone of our operation.


In 1962 our founder Erv Krieg purchased The Blumenthal-Hamilton Printing Company in Hamilton, Ohio. The company had been in operation since it was founded in 1905. Shortly after the purchase the operation was moved from the old church building it occupied to an industrial site at the intersection of Millville and Edgewood Avenues. The name was shortened to Hamilton Printing Company to reflect the change in ownership. Over the years the company grew to occupy three of the buildings in the complex. In 1971 the company incorporated under the name Lee Corp. but continued to operate under the Hamilton Printing moniker.

In 1975 the Lee Corp. purchased the commercial printing operations of the Review Publishing Company located in Lockland, Ohio and continued operating it as a going concern.

In 1977 our present building on Mosteller Road was acquired and the plants in Hamilton and Lockland were combined into one at this location. At this time we began doing business as Lee Printers.

Over the past 50 years the Krieg family has continued to improve our company through investment in technology. We have evolved from a small job shop, into a state-of-the-art facility specializing in 4 color process printing. But this evolution has not caused us to lose site of the fine craft tradition that this company was founded upon. It is the application of craftsmanship to modern technology that allows us to produce quality printed products.
