Courier Printing Company began as an addition to a small newspaper printer near Nashville, Tennessee in the late 1920s. In 1956, the last newspaper was sold and the business fully moved to large-scale commercial printing. About 10 years later, Courier made the jump to web offset printing and in the 1980s, moved facilities to the current location in Smyrna. In 1998, Courier joined Consolidated Graphics and saw opportunities continue to expand.
On January 31, 2014, Courier Printing was bought by RRD and the acquisition gave Courier access to a large network of companies and greater technology that allows us to better serve our customer base. RRD's impressive capabilities in the areas of content creation, technology, data analytics, full-service marketing, and printing have only strengthened our offerings for our customers. Since Courier is part of such a vast network of RRD companies, Courier Printing has the expanded capabilities to meet the demands of any creative print project.
