Litho Craft: 1966-1981

The birth of Seattle’s independent printer, began in 1966 with a commitment to service and quality.

Litho Craft was founded in 1954 in the Eastlake area of Seattle. What began as a plate regraining and supplies business soon evolved into a small offset supplier of negatives, plates and typesetting. In 1966 Litho Craft became incorporated, and in the same year Bill Webber established himself as part owner. As the business grew, printing presses were added and in 1972 the original owners sold their stock to Bill Webber.

Litho Craft ceased being a trade shop in 1977, entered the commercial market and Gary Cone joined the team as General Manager. With the addition of the first 4-color 12x18 press in the Seattle area, Litho Craft had a unique market niche.

Litho Craft’s sales and product offerings continued to grow resulting in the ongoing purchase of new presses, folders, cutters and pre-press equipment. Therefore space was limited in the Eastlake building and Litho Craft needed to move to a larger facility in the Greenwood area in 1981.

Litho Craft: 1982-Now

At Litho Craft, we are proud of our independent legacy, but we have a fresh outlook on the future.

Litho Craft entered the UV coating market in 1984 with the brand name Ultrakote, and operated the first roller coating machine in Seattle. Because of its popularity in the Northwest, a second coater was installed in the Portland area in 1991.

The purchase of a state-of-the-art 40" 6-color press highlighted the year in 2001 along with moving the company to Lynnwood. This move allowed for the continued expansion of the business and the ability to create a cutting edge printing plant.

For over 50 years, Litho Craft has continuously built a company and team of products and services that are customer driven. Our ongoing local ownership by the Webber family, commitment to people, integrity, and technological superiority, position us as the printer you can count on for the next 50 years.


Litho Craft is recognized as one of the finest printers in the Northwest and one of the best managed print companies on the West coast. We’ve got the accolades to prove it!

We have earned the prestigious NAPL (National Association of Printing Leadership) Merit and Silver awards 4 times. These awards name us as one of the best managed graphic arts companies in the United States and Canada as determined through comprehensive evaluation of financial management, internal management systems, and overall product quality. Litho Craft is only one of two printers on the West Coast to receive these outstanding awards.

Awards for high quality printing are nothing new to Litho Craft. We have a long tradition of producing the highest quality print jobs and have received the awards to prove it. The Seattle Club of Printing House Craftsmen runs the Emerald City Craftsmanship Awards. Litho Craft garnered 13 awards from this prestigious organization for fine printing, four of which were international awards. Most recently, Litho Craft earned 11 additional awards, including the “Best of the Best” award in the calendar category.
