A Niche Printer That Grew to an Industry Giant
BCT International was originally known as Business Cards Tomorrow operating as a niche trade printer that specialized in business cards only. Over the next several decades, the company opened printing plants across North America, invested in printing technology, began offering more diversified printing products, and developed proprietary online ordering systems that fueled the company’s growth and success. As this diversification occurred, the company abbreviated its name to BCT, focusing less on the business card niche and positioning the company as a more full service, broad scope trade printer.
Today, the company offers offset and digital sheet-fed printed products, such as postcards, business cards, letterhead and envelopes, commercial envelopes, brochures, rack cards, presentation folders, calendars, door hangers, flyers, thank you cards, memo pads, advanced finishing, booklets, rubber stamps, labels, specialty forms, announcements, specialty items, recycled paper, and NCR/carbonless forms. As a trade-only wholesale printer, BCT sells primarily to retail printers, commercial printers, print brokers, mailing centers, forms distributors, ad agencies, and graphic designers.
PSDA is the largest professional trade organization for distributors and resellers of print, marketing and related services and supply chain partners who actively sell through the trade. http://www.psda.org
