Goes Lithographing History – Chicago IL. Facility

Goes Lithographing has a long and proud history of quality products, services and innovation.  The fourth and fifth generation of Goes family members are currently continuing the traditions of the past while implementing the latest in technology to best serve our customers.

Founded in Chicago in 1879, Goes Lithographing eventually settled into our home for over 100 years at 42 West 61st Street in Chicago before moving to our present location in Delavan, WI in 2010.  The historic building on 61st Street in Chicago went through many changes during its 100+ years of service as advancements in our trade led to expansion and purchase of new equipment as well as changes on the plant itself.

Pictured below are images of our Chicago building.  Note the different ages of the equipment and building areas!

Goes Lithographing Co. – Our Customers Matter !

At Goes Lithographing, we love hearing from our customers!

We recently received the following note from a long-time customer in response to our Spring Newsletter.


Thanks so much for your newsy Spring Letter. And a welcome to the 6th generation of the Goes Family.

My store, Stamp your Heart Out , has been a longtime customer and in February I closed the shop and retired after 35 years in retail and 25 years as Stamp Your Heart Out. I wish you could have seen the dozens of creative calendar uses we designed using your small calendars. And just looking back at our orders you can see that we addicted our customers to your very popular calendars as well.

BTW–I hope you saved a box of your old invoices. I loved receiving your fabulous handwritten letterhead/ invoices .

I grew up outside of Chicago,in Joliet, and the Midwest is the best ! I have also visited your new town. Were you familiar with the Bunte Candy Company in Chicago? Not related, but have a large collection of Bunte candy stuff!

Have a super successful 2014 and looking forward to hearing from you.

Joan Bunte

GOES LITHO has purchased many businesses of similar lines and merged their products and customer list into our now 134 year young business model.

GOES has also purchased several distributors of our products when the time came to close, downsize or retire. Goes does not want to lose the goodwill and local business sales built up for our products by these usually small local family companies. GOES wishes to maintain your customer’s source of supply in a way complimentary to your methods, and as a financial benefit to you.

Perhaps only the GOES list of customer accounts would be of interest to us and other accounts using noncompetitive products may better be sold for similar value elsewhere. If we are included, we will honestly fulfill your trust.

Please consider GOES LITHO as an opportunity to take on this business if the time comes. As a family business, WE understand the care and history that went into your business. To serve your customers from Delavan WI is ever more easily done as you would locally & personally do – electronic means and the option of SKYPE Vision on the monitor can bring face to face communication anywhere.

Refer in Confidence to; Charles B. Goes IV   cbgiv@goeslitho.com

Remaining GOLD-Bronze award certificates without text have been sold to our distributor- Corporate Publishing Companyhttp://CorporatePublishingCompany.com as of February 2014.

The Bronze process requires a larger modified offset press with a 27 foot inline bronzing machine which does not fit within GOES’s relocated facility.
Gold-Bronze inventory has not been replaced since October 2011.

GOES has mothballed the machine, we hope to develop an exact match process in the future.

GOES has developed a laser safe Digital Gold metallic ink process using a 70 lb. Ultra-matte text paper/ 104 gsm. Production requires five impressions to produce Digital Gold with a non-metallic Old Gold security tint in the center of the border.

Goes will convert our Corporate Stock Certificates using Gold -Bronze over to the Digital Gold metallic ink process. We will continue to use the 24 lb. HAZEL 25% cotton fibre watermarked paper.

Goes Lithographing – February 2014


2014 Greetings for the New Year to our Customers and Friends.

Thank You for your patronage this past 2013 – an eventful and busy year full of change and progress for GOES Lithographing Co. and our customers.

Speaking for all of our customer service staff, I wish we could meet and express our personal appreciation for the use of our products during the past year.

We have installed a test system of SKYPE during the past year and will look into this as an addition to our services for 2014.
Perhaps we can have a planned face to face at this time next year after the RUSH of the Holiday Season deliveries.

GOES has relocated to Delavan, Wisconsin as of July 2010 and born in July of 2012, William Carter Goes will represent the GOES family as the 6th generation being introduced to the business by his father & GOES LITHOGRAPHING Vice-President Eric L. Goes.


With the recent launch of our new goesproducts.com e-commerce website, customers will have access to GOES EXTREEEM® Print Services.

These services are primarily electronic imprints of Logos in color, Signatures blue or black, numbering-red or black, placement of individual-variable names on each award, certificate or diplomas.

Binding or assembly to a variety of presentation folders will keep your certificates together for an organized presentation.

GOES uses a combination of offset lithography, toner and inkjet imprinting services which personalize your designs, to produce a complete custom certificate designed through you, by your retail customers.

What else might you sell at this time of year to boost sales?

With the new year current year 2014, calendars still may be sold beginning with January for a 1/12th discount for each month’s expiration beginning February ending June 2014.

Calendars – Any Month Start
A split year -calendar pad continuing for 12 months into 2015 may be ordered anytime of the year! So don’t just think of calendars as just a December / January promotional item


The least costly and most sustainable way for business to reach buyers by gifting to & the placement of contact information in the home or at work using the calendar as a handy reference tool.Special Occasion StationeryAlso will be a new addition to our web site in 2014. Traditional purchase of stationery and cards & envelopes will be maintained. New for 2014 will be the sale of theme Goes Extreeem®
-Art designs for trade use.Restoration of antique small and large images using high dpi electronic scanner and the re-imaging of these antiques to heavy 7 point paper or canvas on stretcher frame is a growing service, since our move to Wisconsin in 2010.

Local fire departments, associations, chambers, banks and business wish to enlarge images for wall display to promote their connection within a community.

GOES will scan at 2540+ dpi, color correct & enhance the
facial & shadow laden images of the content.

An opportunity to promote local history is interesting to everyone and will return additional inquiries to recognize your shop as a local source for new ideas and methods of display.Sometimes insignias worn on a lapel or signage becomes visible helping to fix the subjects identity or location.And now with the closing of this note and the old year past, again we at GOES wish All the Best the New Year can hold for our Customers & Friends.
Thank you and may God Bless you with a Happy and Healthy New Year.Goes Lithographing Co. – Staff & Family

Chris Goes President
