Stouse Sign Service was founded in the early 1950s 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, we produced our first catalog, a much smaller version of today‘s Full Line Catalog.
Stouse is a dependable company to work with.
We relocated the operation to an 18,000 square foot building on Roanoke Road in Kansas City, MO and became Stouse, Inc. By 1988, we outgrew the Roanoke facility and constructed a new 37,000 square foot building in a suburb south of Kansas City, KS.
Spurred on by the success of screen and flexo-printed products, we 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. Our current facility has approximately 180,000 square feet of space and we employ over 400 dedicated workers.
In November 2015, Stouse management and prior ownership recapitalized the company and changed the name to Stouse, LLC.
For more than 40 years, Stouse has been perfecting our craft — creating partnerships with our resellers that are built on trust.
Trust that was earned by:
- A customer service team that cares about our resellers’ reputation. We help ensure their print projects are successful by asking the right questions and ensuring no detail is missed.
- Delivering high-quality products on time, so our resellers can have peace of mind that their customers will be happy.
- Treating our resellers not as transactions, but as business partners.
Our customers love our products, and so will you!
What We Do Best
As an award-winning specialty printer of wholesale decals, magnets, roll labels, signs, and plastic products, we are consciously aware that what we produce for our resellers is a direct reflection of our reseller in the eyes of its clients. There is no room for error.
This is why, at every turn, we are committed to carefully managing and overseeing each aspect of the process to ensure an outcome that is precisely as it should be. Stouse leads these printed product categories in part due to our ability to deliver innovative solutions where others thought there were none.
We consistently appear in Counselor‘s Top 40 Suppliers list and receive 5-Star and A+ ratings in leading industry associations — proof that our laser-focused approach gives our reseller partners more than top of the line production quality, but also confidence, trust, and unmatched value.
We capitalize on what we do best…
- Top-notch customer service.
We go to great lengths to ensure each employee is the right fit for the organization. They need to have the personality and drive to perform at their very best every day. The people we hire make a personal investment in our reseller partners’ success.
- Printing high-quality products.
Ongoing and comprehensive quality and process education are critical in anticipating and avoiding potential pitfalls and obstacles. It doesn’t stop there. A third of our employees have been with Stouse for more than 13 years — in other words, Stouse has experts working on behalf of our resellers.
- Industry-leading quality.
Providing our resellers with superb quality products on every order is achieved through measured quality assurance steps that have been refined throughout our company’s history.
- Superior value.
Not only do our partners get a high-quality product, but the price that comes with that will pleasantly surprise them. An unwritten but often utilized motto — if we can find a better, more efficient, and less expensive way to produce your project, we will.
- Top-notch customer service.
We take care of you and your order.
Stouse’s history proves we’ve developed a formula for providing our customer base with high-quality, cost-effective products, and great customer service. We look forward to continued growth and innovations to better serve you, our resellers.
