Founded in Columbus, Georgia in 1933 by visionary, artist and offset lithography innovator J. Tom Morgan, Litho-Krome Company quickly established a reputation for quality work, innovation, and a willingness to search out and use cutting edge technology. Under Mr. Morgan’s guidance, Litho-Krome’s reproduction of Victor Keppler’s “Wine and Cheese” was chosen for permanent exhibition in the Smithsonian Institution as a premier example of modern lithography.
In 1979, Litho-Krome combined with another industry leader, becoming a subsidiary of Hallmark Cards. True to form, Litho-Krome brought its heritage of utilizing cutting edge technology as well as the inspiration gleaned from industry pioneer Morgan to this new relationship, introducing a wide array of innovations and new processes into the production of greeting cards.
Given this pedigree, it is only natural that Litho-Krome would cultivate a skill for creating high-end art reproductions. It is also only natural that Litho-Krome would quickly become recognized as an industry leader, collecting the distinguished Gold Award from the Printing Industry Association of Georgia for the past five years, as well as currently standing as one of the largest producers of Giclée prints in the nation.
But Litho-Krome’s contribution to Giclee Printing and Offset Lithography for art reproduction cannot be measured by awards and volume of production alone. As always, the drive to produce a better product is paramount and currently manifests itself in a group of services which include image management and proprietary substrates, as well as solutions from the age-old problems of color integrity and consistency of product.
Our history is one of leadership within the industry and our commitment is to remain true to our legacy. To that end, we opened a new facility in 2003—the first in Muscogee Technology Park—and we continue to seek out new technologies for Giclee Printing and Offset Lithography. Our heritage is our future.
