Modern Litho named to Top 20 Magazine Printers List! In 2015, Modern Litho had the privilege of being named to the Top 20 Magazine Printers by Publishing Executive. The Top 20 ranks the leading commercial printers in the U.S. and Canada, based on revenue earned in the magazine sector. Inclusion in this list is evidence of the steady growth of the Modern Litho companies over the last several years. A success we could not acknowledge without first thanking our clients for entrusting us with their print and communications needs.

We welcome Skip Bray as the new General Manager of Modern Litho – St. Louis! Congratulations to our own Skip Bray, the newly named General Manager at the St. Louis facility.

It didn’t take long for Skip to become our top sales rep, and he has maintained that status for many years. Skip is committed to providing quality and great service to our customers. I have every confidence he will do a great job!” – Tom Auffenberg, President Modern Litho – St. Louis.
