President | Stoughton Printing
Jack Stoughton is the President of Stoughton Printing Co., a Southern California firm that has been serving the recording industry since 1965, at a time when there were 27 pressing plants in the Greater Los Angeles are. Initially founded as a label supplier, within a couple of years, Stoughton was supplying slicks for the jacket manufacturers in Southern California – Modern Album, Globe Album, Imperial Pacific, United, KM Records, Ivy Hill Litho.
Even at the ‘young’ age of 65, Jack has been involved in the Record Industry for 7 decades. As President of Stoughton since 1990, he has seen his business (and this industry) through the toughest of times.
Jack grew up in the business, learning many printing and manufacturing techniques along the way, leading to the Stoughton “Old Style” tip-on and gatefold jackets that are considered to be the premier package in the industry.
Seeing the current resurgence of the Vinyl Industry from the inside has given Jack a unique perspective to this industry.
