Wikoff Color Corporation was founded in 1956, when Fred C. Wikoff, Jr. recognized two important needs in the printing industry: tailor-made inks to maximize pressroom efficiencies and highly technical, service oriented approaches to ink making.
Although technology in the industry has evolved tremendously over the years, these two needs have remained constant. Since 1956, we have innovatively met our customers’ needs both on and off the press. Our product lines run the gamut of the major printing processes: litho, flexo, and gravure, as well as functional coatings, energy curable products and specialty items.
Printing is a challenging business, and print buyers are demanding. That is why we develop an ongoing, consultative relationship with our customers – helping them solve problems, gain advantages over their competitors and become more profitable.
