In September of 2008, Cartamundi USA began operations at its new 300,000 square foot home in Dallas, Texas. By 2010, and in response to customer demands, the Dallas facility had developed some very unique and innovative capabilities. Cartamundi USA began to offer graphic and structural design, plastic and lenticular printing and a wide variety of packaging and fulfillment options to a more commercial customer base. 

In 2011, Elite Packaging by Cartamundi was born and began to provide packaging solutions to the entertainment studios in Southern California. By January 2013, the success of Elite Packaging in California and universal customer acceptance of the Elite Packaging brand resulted in the company designating all manufacturing (other than cards and games) as: Elite Packaging by Cartamundi.
