Globe Poster Printing Corporation was formed in 1929 by Norman Goldstein and Mike Shapiro. Originally printing posters for burlesque shows and carnivals, the company later expanded it's business to include posters for entertainers, gospel shows, and even politicians. Globe also produced a limited number of movie posters. In 1955, Globe was purchased by Norman Shapiro. He started a new trend in posters by printing over a fluorescent silk screen (DayGlo), resulting in highly visible posters.
