Get To Know Us


From humble beginnings in the basement of his home in Kettering, Ohio in 1972, John Howe started selling custom ring binders. That evolved into filling those binders with index tabs and printing, opening a binder manufacturing facility, and in 1987 launching a print production facility in downtown Cincinnati.  As technology rapidly advanced, growing the business beyond binders and print became imperative and John added promotional products to his expanding business.  From there John’s kids, Steve and Nancy, joined the business and learned from the bottom up, from collating manuals to answering phones to sales and accounting. 

Today the company continues to thrive and transform as customers’ needs continue to change. With over 50 years of knowledge and experience, The John K. Howe Company is a Cincinnati success story.  We look forward to many years to come in providing our customers with top notch service, expertise and promotional product solutions.
