WHAT WE DO
Mainline hosts a full complement of UV and conventional Komori offset presses.
We have the expertise and experience to help with all of your packaging needs: boxes, displays, trays, and signage.
Mainline is the premier label printer in the Midwest, and an emerging resource nationally. Serving the craft brewery and canned food markets, we offer an array of choices and capabilities to fit your label needs.
Our digital division excels at short run, quick turn pieces, as well as mailing, personalization, and variable data
We pair a 30,000 square foot fulfillment center with a robust and personalized B2B online ordering platform to handle all of your company’s fulfillment needs.
Our finishing department can process almost everything we print in-house – guillotine cutting, die cutting, folding, collating, stitching, shrink wrapping, and shipping.
BEHIND THE SCENES
Continual Investment in Modern Technology
Just as Mainline has in the past, we will continue to separate ourselves from the competition. The most diverse pressroom in the Midwest and a state-of-the-art facility provides opportunities for Mainline to stay in-step with our customers and their ever-evolving needs.
Realizing that working for the local Goodyear Tire and Rubber plant was not for him, Carl McKinley formed McKinley Litho near the mainline of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe railroad in downtown Topeka. The year was 1958. Carl had little money, a few pieces of pre-press equipment, and a more than elementary knowledge of the printing business, but no customers!
Our first location was the second floor of an old building in downtown Topeka, sandwiched between the blacktop of I-70 and a first floor bakery shop. Where the floor wasn't sagging the floorboards were separating, allowing the sweet smells from below to help distract us from the fact that we had a struggling business to run.
Our true entrepreneurial spirit has helped us grow from these humble beginnings, through five location changes, multiple additions and subtractions of both equipment and personnel, but only two owners – the current owner since 1986. They say that we never forget where we came from and that is certainly true for Mainline Printing. While our current facility doesn’t quite resemble our first, we remain just as steadfast in our determination to meet our customer’s every goal with the utmost satisfaction.
Mainline Printing has years of experience in our staff. This strong team is the backbone of everything we do.
