Company Portrait

We have been well-known as a major player in label and packaging printing since 1978.


When Ulrich J. Schulz, now the Chairman of the Board of Directors, took over the company in 1979, the name Etimark stood for Etikettieren (labelling) and Markieren (marking). The product range comprised simple, neutral to four-colour labels for use in price guns and scales.

Our family business is now being run by the second generation. Apart from the company name, however, almost nothing has stayed the same. Both our image and our company are very modern. Our product range has expanded from just labels to include aluminium and plastic foil lids, flexible packaging and price guns. Our strengths lie in high-quality products printed in up to eight colours and excellent flexibility of service.


Flexobility – Etimark is the place to come for maximum flexibility and the latest UV flexographic printing technology.

Etimark & Ekology

With our actions, whether we want or not, all of us impact the environment. Our generation must set itself clearly the goal of understanding how to control and reduce this impact.  We at Etimark think that our contribution consists in generating operating numbers and in reducing the use of resources through targeted measures. After a complete energy check-up, we have developed efficiency measures backed by savings targets. We also dispense entirely with the use of solvents and thus figure in the whitelist as a VOC-free company. We expect our suppliers to make efforts in this direction as well.
