Welcome to Advantage Litho Supply

Our company was originally founded in 1978 by one of the largest graphic arts dealer networks in the US, Robertson Porter. In 1988 the company was acquired by Burgess Norral to complement their Detroit location and supply the growing commercial print market on the west side of Michigan. Mark Vanderbur purchased the company in 1998 and changed the company’s name and outlook. Advantage Litho Supply quickly grew in annual sales through customer service and printing expertise.

Advantage Litho Supply is a leading distributer of commercial printing, wide format and photography supplies to the Northern Midwest with an increasing national customer base. In 2013 Advantage Litho Supply formed a new division called Advantage 3D Solutions. Advantage 3D Solutions specializes in 3D printing equipment, supplies and technical support for the growing 3D printing space.

Located in west Michigan, our goal is to provide the very best service and value available to our diverse customer base. We represent many world-class manufacturers including Kodak, Epson, X-rite, 3D Systems and Markforged. With a growing trend of shortened lead times, providing a smooth, uninterrupted order process is extremely important to us. Our 12,000 square foot warehouse allows us to stock high-use items for fast, hassle-free delivery.

We feel that in order to stay viable it is imperative to be a forward thinking company. At Advantage we are constantly looking ahead for the most current printing equipment and software. Our state of the art demo center gives us the ability to showcase the latest in digital printing, workflow solutions, color management tools and 3D printing equipment. We also provide extensive training and knowledge on EFI and Onyx software as a value added service.

Advantage Litho Supply is certified by IDEAlliance as a G7 Expert company. As a G7 expert company we are authorized by IDEAlliance to train customers in color management, process, and quality control for proofing and printing equipment. Our goal is to help our customers set a method, standard or specification with repeatable, predictable color results.

After more then a decade, our sales have grown tenfold but we have not forgotten about who we are and how we came to be. Quality product, value and service is still our focus and building strong partnerships with our customers will always be the foundation of our company.
