Our Story

As the largest printing and distribution company in the United States, books are our passion. We achieve meaning through our work, while collaborating with our customers to bring their visions to life. We have a rich legacy of innovation and our success is largely attributed to the dedication of employees who bring our values to life every day through their contributions to our business, customers, and the communities in which we operate.

In 1864, R.R. Donnelley started as a partner at a small printing company in Chicago. Lakeside has evolved since our founding and is now one of the largest and most trusted printing service providers in the world.

As we continue writing this chapter of our story, we proudly combine cutting-edge techniques and technology with decades of book manufacturing expertise as leaders in printing and distribution.
