Who We Are
A LITTLE HISTORY
Roy DeVries was only 17 years old when he shook hands to buy his very first printing press, a letterpress hand-feed printer. The printer maintains it's "front of the shop" presence in the entrance lobby. But that purchase kick-started decades of passion for the digital printing industry, including the founding of Screen-Trans in 1985.
In the 35 years since, Screen-Trans has distinguished itself as a family-led, American-made business that produced quality and vibrant color images for fabric banners and other specialty items. All printing, sewing, and finishing are done in-house to ensure superior results with quality controls at every stage along the production process.
The company has been recognized throughout the years for its commitment to pushing the boundaries of what is possible for digital printing, rotary screen printing, and table printing. At Screen-Trans, we pride ourselves on being early innovators in printing technology, including Accu-Trans fabric sublimation, textile foil application, and four-color process via lithography in sublimation. As one example of this leadership in research, Roy was awarded the prestigious Soderstrom Award for being one of the top printers of the century.
Now in its second generation of family leadership under President Bob DeVries, Screen-Trans continues to build on its legacy. Large retail stores and brokers around the world trust Screen-Trans today to deliver the products they need to promote and grow their businesses utilizing high-quality and vibrant banners, exhibit displays, outdoor signage, and more. Today, we can produce well over 150,000-250,000 sq ft per week. With these capabilities, we are proud to have been able to help produce large rollouts for many high-profile clients such as Estee Lauder, Victoria’s Secret, Bacardi, Movado watches, and the Javits Center.
With office and manufacturing located in our northeastern New Jersey plant, we are convenient to New York City and only 10 minutes west of both the Lincoln Tunnel and the George Washington Bridge.
