Our History

Stouse Sign Service was founded in the early 1950‘s and specialized in sign painting and billboards. The business was purchased in 1977 and the product line was expanded to include bumper stickers and other screen printed products. In 1979, Stouse produced its first catalog, a much smaller version of today‘s Full Line Catalog.

The company relocated the operation to an 18,000 square foot building on Roanoke Road in Kansas City, MO and the company became Stouse, Inc. By 1988, the company outgrew the Roanoke facility and constructed a new 37,000 square foot building in a suburb of Kansas City. Spurred on by the success of screen and flexo printed products, the company made an addition that more than doubled the facility‘s size in 1992, and again more than doubled the facility in 1996. Stouse continued to grow and added four forms of digital printing over the years as technology and ink durability improved. The facility has approximately 180,000 square feet of space and the company employs over 330 dedicated workers.

In November 2015, Stouse management and prior ownership recapitalized the company and changed the name to Stouse, LLC. Stouse consistently appears in Counselor‘s Top 40 Suppliers list and receives 5 Star and A+ ratings in leading industry associations.
