Strategic Factory Named No. 2 in Printing News Magazine’s Top 100 Printers

Each year, Printing News invites commercial print owners to participate in the Top 100 Small Commercial Printers survey. The survey looks at the state of the industry as presented by commercial print owners across North America.

This year, in keeping with the spirit of “Small Commercial Printers,” the company only included the Top 100 North American commercial printers with revenues of $25 million or less.


Strategic Factory cracked the Top 5 for the first time in 2019, earning the No. 2 spot on the list with 2018 revenue totaling $20,404,288. The company saw an 11% increase in sales from 2017 to 2018.

Since opening in January of 2015, Strategic Factory has been ranked in the Top 10 each year:  No. 8 in 2015, No. 7 in 2016, and No. 6 in 2017 and 2018.

Strategic Factory CEO Keith Miller was an early pioneer of diversification and invested in digital printing technology from the get-go. 

“I got in at an opportune time when the entire industry was going digital and everyone was looking for a way to do it faster and better,” Miller said. “All my digital equipment was leased, which allowed me to change it out quickly and stay current, helping us evolve as a company.”

Strategic Factory has positioned itself as a single point provider with a broad range of products and services, including digital and offset printing, creative marketing, promotional products and branded apparel, signage, and web design and development. The company employs a team of subject matter experts to plan, strategize, and implement print, marketing, branding, and communications campaigns.

“For nearly 20 years, we’ve been creating raving fans by providing the very best products and services, coupled with unparalleled customer service,” Miller said. “We always say ‘yes’ to our customers!” 

The top printers from this year’s survey have different business approaches, but they share an entrepreneurial spirit, a dedication to understanding and meeting customer needs, a commitment to providing a supportive environment for employees, and unmatched enthusiasm for their businesses and the industry.

Congratulations to all 100 companies that made the list!
