The Consolidated Lithographing Corporation was founded in Brooklyn, New York in 1925 by an immigrant from Romania, Jacob A. Voice. Mr. Voice was employed by Wm Steiner & Sons & Co.(an earlier lithography company), and by 1911 he had organized his own company. Consolidated Lithographing Corp was formed from a merger of the Wm Steiner & Sons company and Mr. Voice’s company. In 1925, the name of his firm changed to Consolidated Lithographing Corporation. It became one of the largest printers of paper labels in the early 20th century.
