About Us

Although incorporated in 1990, the story of The Print Source starts back in 1986:

1986 As Prairie Graphics, Inc. in Glenview Illinois, we were one of the first companies to purchase a Macintosh computer for typesetting.
1990 Opened Rictec Professionals, Inc. (now The Print Source) with a “computer to film” processor.
1992 Opened a subsidiary in Lake Villa, Illinois. The focus of Double Click Printing and Graphics was to have an all digital workflow, from design to press. We were one of the pioneer developers of the “computer to plate” process.
1996 We bought our first digital press. This “copier on steroids” was second to none at pumping out four-color manuals for sales training courses.
1999 We reached $1mm in sales.
2017 Today as in the past, The Print Source focuses on understanding your needs and delivering the best product at the most competitive price. Whether we produce your project in-house or through our vast network of resources, we measure our success by your complete satisfaction.
