Experience and Integrity at Empire Printing

In 1960, Empire began as a one-man operation in a humble garage in Wisconsin. James A. Brush wanted the name of his company to reflect the vision of what he wanted it to become. Thus Empire Screen Printing, Inc., was born.

Our roots are in screen printing, but we have grown into much more. Today, Empire is an industry leader in screen printing, flexography, digital printing, and doming.

Empire is currently located on 170 acres in Onalaska, Wisconsin, and employs over 200 employees. Our facilities have expanded to encompass over 150,000 square feet of manufacturing space.

Community Involvement

In the neighborhoods where we live and work, businesses and community leaders have a powerful role to play in strengthening our communities. Empire has been a significant presence in the Coulee Region, and has always had a strong desire to make an impact.

Since 1987, Empire has been donating it's time and material to print the CMN Holiday Cards. All proceeds from the sale of the cards benefit children and families right here in the greater Wisconsin area.

Follow us on Facebook, as Empire and its employees support our community through their volunteer efforts and charitable giving.
