From Humble Beginnings to Industry Leader

In 2014, Lamcraft is celebrating its 40th anniversary. Over the last four decades, the company has created hundreds of items specifically designed to serve the funeral and memorial industry while continuing to supply high quality lamination products for businesses in the United States and Canada.

Lamcraft, Inc. began in 1974 as a two-man operation in the garage of Mike O’Malley’s home. Mike and co-owner Bob Sabin brought years of experience in printing, die-cutting, laminating, binding, sales and service to their fledgling business. The hard work and long hours put into building the business garnered results, and Lamcraft moved operations to an industrial building in Raytown, Missouri, in 1975. The partners soon expanded their locally based enterprise to a nationally known supplier of lamination products and services.  The demand for new products, expanded inventory, innovative processes and more personnel dictated the search for a larger, state-of-the-art facility.  Mike and Bob found a new building to meet all their needs in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, where Lamcraft has been based for the last 17 years.

Over the years many products developed by Lamcraft have been firsts in the market. The sturdy desktop laminator with its brushed metal casing has become iconic in the funeral industry. The original artwork featured on its Memorial Card and Premium Memorial Card line, quality printing and superior laminating materials have set industry standards. Quantity discount pricing allows funeral directors to combine various laminating pouches and cards for savings in purchasing.
