HOLLYWOOD BANNERS: OUR JOURNEY FROM CALIFORNIA TO NEW YORK
While we are no longer located in Hollywood, that’s where we got our name. And our start! In 1927, we had our humble beginnings in the depths of the film industry. We originally sold theatre ushers’ uniforms and moved quickly onto appliqué style banners which hung in theatre marquees.
Eventually, we got into silk screen printing and started working on the “Coming Attraction” banners that would travel from theatre to theatre with the film canisters. One of our first silk screening projects was creating the usher lapel pins for the 1937 film “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs!
In the 1940s we left Hollywood and moved to the East Coast with the film distribution industry. Once there, we saw so much opportunity in additional industries that we decided it was time to branch out. We began working on advertising banners for consumer products and events, and now we offer table covers, trade show displays, window and floor graphics, boards and signs and grand format printing.
Most of our printing and all of our finishing processes are completed in-house at our workshop in Copiague, NY. While we still have our traditional silkscreen printing tables, we have also added modern digital printing presses to round out our operating system.
