About Us

For more than 150 years and five generations the Simon family, has been a printing enterprise. 

“The Printing Rooms of Nicholas Simon” was the name of the first printing establishment in Louisville, Kentucky, which opened in 1866. When it came to the printing of business and dancing cards, Nicholas was a man of vision. 

Second and third generations of Simons concentrated on newspaper and trade magazine publishing for more than 90 years in Louisville. 

Fourth-generation president Frank E. Simon took office in 1954. When Frank decided to locate his new company in Shepherdsville, he did so with the hope that the wonderful people who lived there would contribute to its growth. 

It was in 2010 when Distinct Packabilities, the fifth generation of the Simon family’s flexographic printing business, was established at Shepherdsville, Kentucky. 

Elizabeth Simon Montgomery took over as manager and owner of Distinct Packabilities after the sale of Publishers Printing Company and the end of 2018. 

Distinct Packabilities is a Flexographic Printing and Packaging facility. We incorporate food-safety compliant inks to print on film that is primarily used in the food packaging industry. We also utilize laminating, roll slitting, and bag machines in the post-press phases of production. Our clients are primarily manufacturers of food and snacks. 

Distinct Packabilities is strategically located at the corner of Highway 44 and Buckman Street. This is approximately one mile from I-65, a Tier One corridor and one of the busiest interstates in the country. 

Our focus is on printing quality and follows the long and proud legacy of the Simon printing family.
