About Us


 Born in 1997, Stop The Presses Printing Company is the brainchild of Charlie Hamilton, Stockton native. Trained by his parents, Keith and Elnore, Charlie worked at their printing franchise for several years before branching off on his own. In December of 2010, Charlie’s dad Keith decided to retire, and closed his franchise. Stop The Presses moved into the location, and the family tradition continues...

We know the Stockton community and we produce our printing products right here in Stockton. That’s why we’re often able to provide same day service. We pride ourselves on our people and printing skills, expert assistance with layout and design, quality and reliability. 

Client Testimonials


 “Charlie and his designers at Stop the Presses provide more than just a 'print shop.' They treat me like a friend. Our organization used to use online printing due to the low prices, but Charlie has rivaled the prices and provided a superior product and service…I will continue using Stop the Presses and I recommend their services to others.”
—Elise Willis, the Director of Business, Marketing, and Training for the Mediation Center of San Joaquin

 "I began using Stop the Presses printing three years ago after a seemingly never ending search for a quality printer. Since then I have never had to look again. Charlie Hamilton and his staff are extremely knowledgeable, friendly, creative and exceedingly efficient. The quality of work is exceptional, always on time and well priced. Not to mention the outstanding customer service; around the office it is priority number one. Whether it is meeting you at your place of business, picking up your printing needs or delivering to you personally; there isn't much they will not do to make sure their customers are satisfied."
—Tiffany Lupul, In Good Company Designs
