Humble beginnings..

You can count on P3 to help you look good.


Caulastics began as a sole proprietorship in 1960 under the name of Caulley's Creative Litho Service. The company incorporated as a standard private corporation in California in 1987, named Caulastics. Due to reorganization, the company changed names to Plastic Printing Professionals, Inc (P3) in April 2002.


The single most significant change occurred in 1970. For the first ten years of the company's existence, it functioned as a standard small job shop - printing letterheads, envelopes, brochures, business cards and school newspapers. In 1970, Lowell Caulley bought The Clipper Printing Company of San Francisco, and merged it with Caulley's Litho to form Caulastics.


The Clipper Printing Company was a letterpress shop that printed on plastic and primarily produced signs for government ships & Government I.D. cards. Lowell converted the letterpress work to lithography and moved all the existing finishing equipment into his Daly City facility. In 1972, Lowell installed the first ultraviolet curing system for sheet- fed plastic printing. Within a year's time, the paper printing operation was transferred to local paper printers and Caulastics became a plastics only production facility. Caulastics specialized in producing Polyester / Polyethylene I.D. cards in addition to the standard PVC cards, thus becoming the first company in the U.S. to manufacture both styles of cards under one roof. 


I am grateful for the quality work and exemplary service provided by P3. They've helped SalesForce grow DreamForce tremendously while automating the customer experience using RFID. I highly recommend P3 to anyone looking to grow their events!
