Walter has been committed to developing and refining packaging solutions for companies and brands of every size in a multitude of industries and verticals. This acquisition is a testament to that commitment.”

LPI specializes in foil stamping, embossing, die-cutting, holograms, point-of-purchase displays and custom design of printed materials.
