A family business with family values: USA Label Express was begun in 1971 by Brent Helwig in Cleveland, Ohio. In the family home shared with his wife, Win and their six children, Brent set up shop in half of their two-car garage. Known at the time as In Store Supply Sales, the shop specialized in small labels, commodity keys, feather dusters and price markers.
A short time later, Brent moved the family to Canton, Ohio and moved the business into its building. He added label guns to his list of products, converted a delivery truck and sold labels door-to-door. Brent's family grew by one, and his business grew into manufacturing scale labels with his first Mark Andy Press.
In 1995 the business was passed on, with three of his children purchasing the company. Today, they and several grandchildren still direct the vision for USA Label Express.
Three generations later, we continue to grow in a tough market.
