Who We Are

Making Brands Unforgettable, since 1996

Sunrise Printing exists to help people, businesses, and organizations express what their brand is all about through creative branding and merchandise.

While generating the desired business results. 

Sunrise Printing was founded in 1996, in my garage in Raleigh, North Carolina.  My goal was to connect and work with people in my business community. I was always drawn to the education markets as well as hospitality, and word about my creativity and good service got out, and thanks to my awesome clients, my business became known and started to grow.

Meet Chris Stephenson, Founder

My business career started as a young boy when my uncle hired me to help him in his professional photography studio in New York.

He ran a successful business as the commissioned photographer for all sorts of events, with a large portion of his business coming from weddings. But he didn’t only offer photography services, he also provided invitations, gift boxes, and favors.

I really enjoyed working with people, getting to know what they were going for so I could help them select the right invitations and favors.

A few years later I was able to start my own promotional products business in North Carolina, where I continue to enjoy helping my clients find the right branded products’ match for their promotions and marketing campaigns.

I’m grateful for my awesome clients for entrusting their brands to Sunrise Printing over the years. I value the relationships I’ve built with the businesses and organizations in my community.


Sunrise Printing frequently partners with local schools, universities, youth organizations, and charities such as the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Mothers Against Drunk Drivers, Catholic Charities, March of Dimes, just to name a few. We support many fundraising activities and awareness campaigns that benefit our community.
