This is our story and we're stickin' to it!
Platinum Converting is a premier provider of finishing services serving the print and graphic arts community both locally and nationwide.
Established in 1998, Platinum Converting has grown from a small finishing company with one laminator and one UV coater in a 15,000 square foot facility to a provider of a full menu of finishing services all under a 120,000 square foot roof!
Platinum Converting is conveniently located in the suburbs of Chicago at 851 Expressway Drive in Itasca, Illinois. We are easily accessible via major toll roads and expressways in the Chicago land area.
We pride ourselves on doing “whatever it takes” for our customers. That means we work with our customers, building a relationship on our dedication, commitment and superior service delivered with the fastest turnaround times in the business.
Going the extra mile is not a cliché for us – it is demonstrated daily in the form of a complimentary prototype, overtime or weekends on the job, improvements to submitted designs or hand-deliveries – just to name a few. We understand the pressure our customers experience and do our best to ease that burden and make you look good.
Since our inception, the owners of Platinum Converting have been receptive to what services our customers need and have expanded our capabilities to exceed those expectations by investing in the highest quality staff and equipment.
Platinum Converting is a diverse company, which employs the skills of many individuals with unique talents to make your print “POP”!
