Stephen (Steve) Hall and Leslie Ritter founded the company in 1997.

It all began in an apartment with a dream and with an understanding of printing. Steve worked in the industry and saw a need for customized sheet labels of any size or shape.

Steve always thinks outside the box and he uses his vast knowledge to develop materials not available elsewhere

In 2008, the company moved to Benton City, WA and built a facility with the ability to expand.

Columbia Label was established later in 2010, named after the Columbia Valley AVA. The Columbia Valley AVA is the largest wine region in the state of Washington, spanning over 11,000,000 acres.

Washington State is the second largest wine production area in the USA, and Columbia Label is located in the heart of that region, surrounded by 16 American Viticulture Areas (AVAs) and more than 400 wineries.
