Our Journey

In 1970, after a decade of experience in the print industry, Harlan Knobel decided to go into business for himself and purchased National Printing.

Later, he combined National Printing and Acme Stamp & Print and rebranded the company to National Color Graphics. NCG was one of the first printers in the area to offer full color printing.

For over 46 years, NCG has served the Inland Northwest and beyond with premium quality print communications and exceptional service. Joined by his son, Chris Knobel, NCG is positioned to continue to be a leader in the print industry and is committed to make the investments to be a strong partner for their clients.
