Globe Poster Printing Corporation was formed in 1929 by Norman Goldstein and Mike Shapiro, and they opened their first printing shop in Baltimore. Although they began their business in the middle of the Depression, their business prospered by printing posters for burlesque shows and carnivals. The company extended its business to include posters for entertainers, gospel shows, and even politicians. At one time, Globe printed posters for almost every boxing match in Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York. 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, giving a "day-glow" appearance. Globe posters are easily recognizable by their flashy and bold colors.

In addition to their wide variety of entertainment, sport and political posters, Globe also prints concert tickets, restaurant menus, bumper stickers, T-shirts, ties, etc. from their facilities in Baltimore.
