About Accent – Our History
Accent Group Solutions is founded in family and built with a passion for innovation and improvement in all that we do.

Our Family Business Story
Our story begins in 1946, when our grandfathers joined forces to start a printing company. Two years later, they established their first official building in Kirkwood, MO. After 45 years of service, the second generation took the helm. Fast forward to current times, the 3rd generation (that’s us!) serves our community as the Accent you know today.
Serving Special Needs
Accent is committed to the special needs community. This commitment started in 1998 and continues today. As a company, we began work with SSD (Special School District) in 2016. In 2017, we were honored with the prestigious Special Ambassador Award for our work providing jobs to students with special needs. In 2021, we were honored by the St. Louis Business Journal, winning the Philanthropic Company of the Year award.
In 2015, Accent was formally certified by Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) as a woman-owned business. We have also been certified by Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB). These certifications allow us to qualify for any of your diverse spending objectives. Just two years after our WBENC certification, Accent’s CEO and owner Erica Hughes received the Enterprising Woman of the Year Award.
Over the years, we have evolved from a post-war printing company to the Midwest’s premier print, fulfillment, warehousing, and packaging solutions provider. Accent is committed to continue growing and expanding to better-serve our clients, staff, and community. Let’s talk about your next project!
