our history

As a former representative for a packaging distribution company, Robert Parker always had problems with custom labels. He determined it shouldn’t be that difficult and decided to start his own company. In June of 2002, Label King opened it’s doors using only one printing machine and one production assistant in a modest 1,500 square foot facility.

Since 2002, Label King has manufactured over 2.9 billion labels and counting. We have now grown into a beautiful 9,300 square foot facility with four high quality printing machines.
