E.R. Callender Printing Company, Incorporated opened its doors on 5th Street in Kansas City, Kansas, in 1893. The owner, Ed Callender was utilizing the old letterpress system of printing, first with wooden type fonts and later, switching to lead to service Kansas City area businesses. Over the years, the company stayed in the Callender family with multiple generations of Callenders’ growing the business with local team members and contributing to the community.
