34 years of history
Founded in 1981 in Tukwila, Washington, Emerald City Graphics started off as a small, one room pressroom with just a few black and white offset presses. As the company grew in time, they relocated to a bigger shop, and after the fourth move, ECG landed where it stands today in Kent, Washington. When ECG started out, it was a black and white print shop mainly focusing on manuals. By the late 1990’s, Emerald City Graphics joined Consolidated Graphics—one of America's premier providers of commercial printing services, with a coast-to-coast presence of printing companies that spans nationally as well as internationally. After joining CGX Emerald City Graphics rapidly evolved into a full manufacturing custom print and packaging company. Emerald City Graphics then became a RR Donnelley Company on January 31, 2014 as a result of the strategic combination of Consolidated Graphics and RR Donnelley.
