A word from our Founder:

Howard DeMoore (1928-2017), Inventor

“Super Blue is the one for you.”


I established Printing Research, Inc in 1968 as a veteran pressman. I began developing solutions for “marking” problems traditionally associated with offset sheet-fed presses. Since then, PRI has grown into a corporation that now serves the printing industry worldwide. Printers in more than 150 countries have come to recognize PRI as an industry leader in state of the art pressroom equipment and supplies. PRI has expanded its commitment to pressroom productivity and capacity from sheet-fed printing to flexo converting and board printing. PRI systems can now be found in every market segment of the print industry.


At our research and development facility in Dallas, Texas, USA, we use our achievements and experience to design future applications for PRI products that will help you continue to expand your printing business and increase your profitability. Our commitment to quality is borne from years of experience with the unique requirements of the printing trade. Through our research and development efforts, you can enjoy greater productivity and a stronger competitive edge in our market. We are here to help make your printing better!
