LINCOLN, NE—Equity Partners CRB LLC has been retained through the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to seek a buyer for Jacob North Printing. Based here, Jacob North Printing is a 125-year-old, full-service regional printing and graphics communications company that offers web, sheetfed, digital and label printing, as well as fulfillment, mailing and inventory management services. It also provides e-mail marketing, personalized Websites and SMS marketing.
Jacob North Printing operates out of a 62,000-square-foot, leased facility at the Lincoln AirPark West. Equipment includes a six-color, 40˝ Heidelberg sheetfed press with inline aqueous coating; half- and full-web presses suitable for longer runs; and digital equipment for shorter runs.

“With Jacob North’s ability to handle jobs from disk to distribution, full in-house mailing capabilities, full-web and sheetfed printing and complete individualized content offerings, we are truly a one-stop shop for all print and cross-media communication distribution, large or small, static or individualized," said Charlie Calhoun, president and CEO of Jacob North.
