All print methods are carefully calibrated for consistent color matching across all elements of your multi-faceted projects or kits.
You can travel to one source for your press checks.
Our flexibility allows us to double and triple time your printing by spreading the job among presses. If our equipment has issues (yes, it happens!) we can move your job to other presses.
Do you realize your substrate choice can be as much as 40% of the cost of any print job?
World of Plastics is our Plastic Distribution and Fabrication Division
By becoming a distributer, we have omitted the middle person and we can pass along this cost saving to you
Have you ever been told that your job can’t be turned in time because the material is not available?
We are able to expedite your turn time by stocking plastics such as styrene, PVC and coroplast
No rush freight charges either!

Why our Fulfillment Solutions will be of value to you
KDM Fulfillment, our Warehousing and Distribution Division can sort, label and pack your complex or not so complex kits and distribute them from just one central Midwest location
No need to ship to a fulfillment house and then again onto your destination. That will increase your speed to market and provide cost savings on your nationwide campaigns
We look at your whole project, from end-to-end, and suggest cost saving options on the entire process: this includes the box size and the weight considerations. You won’t hear “boy, if only this sign was ¼” smaller we could have saved you booku in shipping costs”.
Would you agree that shipping costs have become one of the fastest growing expenses most companies face?
It can be as much as 15% of the cost of the project. That adds up!
Depending on the scope of your campaign, we are able to utilize a National Warehouse and Distribution Network of 7 nationwide locations.
We can ship UPS Ground 1 Day service to 56% of the population.
We can expedite the kitting time and the transit time
Overs can be held at these locations for faster response.
National Distribution Why our Distribution Solutions will be of value to you Problem: Dr. Pepper needed a faster and more economical way to ship their 7,226 monthly POP kits across the U.S. KDM Solution: We are able to get 68% of their kits to the 226 sites in 1 day via UPS Ground vs. just 10% at their current Southwest vendor. It saves them a substantial amount in shipping costs- $73,560 per year!
Online Procurement and Project Management
With our KDM INTELLiTRAK software we can activate a web based POP ordering and inventory system customized for you.
This site would allow individual locations to order entire kits suited to their profile or replacement pieces for current and past Sales Events.
You will have a complete online real time inventory system that is handled by our KDM Fulfillment Division.
KDM will upload tracking on each program online so stores can easily track their shipments
You will be able to control what is ordered and have back end reporting.
KDM INTELLiTRAK Why our Online Procurement Solutions will be of value to you Problem: Butterball needed a central location for all their POP, print materials, wearables and promotional products. With over 150 nationwide Sales Reps ordering this stuff, their challenge was how to oversee spending, track and manage who got what, and apply the 300 items that fall into 75 categories into the proper cost center. (sounds painful) KDM Solution: With INTELLiTRAK, we were able to customize the ordering process for each Rep- according to their specific profile. Each Rep has a spending allowance within their line of business or cost center. The Corporate Office can control and track all orders. Butterball has over 300 people using the system.

Green Scene Why our Green Solutions will be of value to you Problem: A home improvement retailer was looking for a sustainable option for their print run of 35 million outdoor plant identifier tags for their garden centers. KDM Solution: We pitched the idea of a recyclable .012 Eco-Green material instead of Styrene. They were excited to learn that this 80% clay, 20% poly blend would actually come in costing less without sacrificing print quality and the outdoor stability was actually superior. The material is more flexible, and it won’t yellow outdoors. It is recyclable and if it did end up in a landfill- at least 80% will degrade.
