Customers of K.I.S.S. Printing can choose to print large block posters and murals on durable waterproof paper for applications that need to last
Relyco is today announcing that K.I.S.S. Printing, a Web-to-Print Service provider has chosen Relyco’s REVLAR waterproof paperto be its synthetic paper of choice for its customers. When customers choose to create and print multi-page, giant block posters and murals, they can select to have their projects printed on the waterproof, tear resistant REVLAR.
K.I.S.S. Printing was established to provide a “keep it simple” approach to provide a very affordable way for its customers to print color posters and documents. What makes K.I.S.S. Printing unique from other Web-to-Print services is that gives at least 50 percent of its profits to a charity every month. If profits exceed $20,000 in a month, 100 percent of its profits from that point on then go to the charity.
“Not only is K.I.S.S Printing delivering color print services at low cost, we’re also enabling our customers to help others by donating our profits to charity,” said Daniel Hutton, vice president of K.I.S.S. Printing. “We started working with Relyco when we partnered with a highly rated online site for creating large rasterized wall posters. Their REVLAR waterproof was ideal for this application as many of customers were looking to output their projects on media that would last and stand up to the elements.”
K.I.S.S. Printing is using Relyco’s 5.7 mil REVLAR on 13”x19” sheets on a Ricoh C901 color production printer to print large block posters created on its partner site. To see a demonstration on how easy it is to produce a giant wall mural from any uploaded image, watch this video.
“Relyco is very pleased that K.I.S.S. Printing selected our REVLAR waterproof paper for their Web-to-Print application and look forward to growing our relationship with them,” said Mike Steinberg, president and CEO of Relyco. “We are very impressed with their business model of providing a great service while donating a significant portion of their profits to charity.”

Relyco founder values customer service
To run a business printing and payment company, you cannot stop innovating. From laser and digital applications to e-payment software, technology keeps advancing.
As Mike Steinberg, 59, prepares to celebrate the 25th anniversary of his firm, Relyco, he credits his company’s success to a commitment to customer service. The Dover-based firm with about 40 employees has a long and growing list of global customers — from corporations to governments to colleges.
Question: What was your first job?
Steinberg: Working part time at Portsmouth Paper Co. when I was 16. I started in the warehouse cleaning the bathrooms. By the time I left 14 years later, I was running operations. I went to another company, Quality Paper, and worked there two years.
Q: Then what happened?
Steinberg: One of my former bosses came to me in 1989 and said, “Let’s do something together.” I was 35. I was ready to run my own business. My wife and I talked about it, and she was completely supportive.
Q: How did you come up with the Relyco name for your company?
Steinberg: My wife and I were sitting around talking about it. We were discussing the idea of “Reliable” and she came up with Relyco. We’re on our third logo in 25 years.
Q: Did the business take off right away?
Steinberg: I thought Rome could be built in a day. Actually, it took a couple of years for me to get my first real paycheck.
Q: Did you ever fear the business wouldn’t survive?
Steinberg: I wasn’t going to fail. I don’t like to fail. Fortunately, I got a lot of support from my in-laws during those first few years.
Q: How did you fund the business?
Steinberg: In 1989, I got a $100,000 line of credit from a bank. That banker believed in me. I’m still loyal to that guy today. I’m not sure I’d be able to get that kind of loan from a bank nowadays.
Q: Did you write a business plan?
Steinberg: My partner handled that and I handled sales. My job was to start selling. I knew the vendors. We learned you have to be able to pay your bills so that we could buy right and sell right. We needed vendors who wanted to deal with us, and the way to do that was to pay our bills and deliver great customer service.
Q: Did you envision the company would grow and prosper 25 years later?
Steinberg: I always had big eyes. I anticipated this growth. When you always do what’s best for the customer, you can do very well.
Q: How do you innovate?
Steinberg: You think ahead. If paper checks are going away, what will replace them? We’ve gone from paper checks to electronic payments to payroll cards in recent years. One of our bestselling items is waterproof paper that doesn’t tear — for use in a digital printer.
