Engraving and Electrotyping

We first met this firm way back in 2013: that time, we detailed its early history and later acquisition by Marathon Paper and its longevity under that firm's successors into the 1990's. 

To quote the 1921 edition of Sterling's Menasha, Wis Directory:  "...its specialty is the printing of great quantities of soap wrappers, gum wrappers, and bread wrappers and the manufacture of practically 90% of the ice cream and butter cartons used in the United States. A half million and a million soap wrappers a day and single orders for billions of wrappers are indicative of the output of this one plant." 
April 28, 1923, Appleton Post-Crescent
