We Are
Innovators

From product trends to cutting edge decoration technologies, we’ve delivered the highest quality product and most creative solutions to the craft beverage industry for over 30 years.

We Started Small, With Big Ideas

We started small in 1988 in Lawrence, Kansas. Our origins began with printing water bottles and t-shirts. When a local brewery approached us with the request of printing on glass growlers, we quickly adapted to the changing environment and innovated to meet the demand. Growler by growler, pint by pint, Grandstand grew up with the craft beverage industry. And like you, we obsessed over quality and learned along the way.

We’ve now partnered with more than 17,000 craft breweries, distilleries, restaurants, corporations and businesses – small and large. We have ensured that their brand is compelling, credible, consistent, and connected. Now, more than 30 years later, we bring the full weight of our experience and expertise to showcase your business. Give your brand the attention it deserves – every time.
