Paper Products Company
In 1932 at age 25, Omer “Oakie” Smith started what was to become Paper Products Company in the basement of his parents house. He “hand made” white lined corrugated cake circles for the bakers in Cincinnati by using his mom’s flour and water to make the paste to glue white shelf paper to brown corrugated board. He cut them out with used razor blades from a barber shop and tapped them out with automobile valves. This was the Great Depression Era! He had an idea and $100 working capital. Seventy-Five years later, with 3 generations of family actively involved, a group of loyal employees, and excellent suppliers, we are committed to serving the baking and food industry with the most innovative and highest quality packaging with unmatched service.

We offer offset and flexographic printing, sheet fed and web fed die cutting, high speed windowing, high speed folder gluers, imprinting, and specialty coatings to produce both our custom and stock cartons. Our own art and structural design department has created award winning designs and offers computerized mock-ups for your approval.
