Hello! I am a licensed attorney, admitted to practice in state and federal court. I have a nearly 100% satisfaction rating so all that means is that you can count on me to help today. In cases like these generally the printing company is only going to have limited liability. However, the liability goes up the less the printing company inquires or finds out whether the customer has the right to reproduce that logo. So, if the printing company learns that the customer does not have the right to reproduce the logo and they reproduce the local anyway, than the printing company could have liability for infringing on the trademark. On the other hand, if the printing company doesn't no one has no realistic way to find out whether somebody has the right to reproduce that particular trade more, than the printing company will probably not have any liability. Therefore, as you can see that it is not automatic whether they do or don't have liability, it would be up to the party claiming the trademark infringement that the printing company had some sort of hand in reproducing their logo illegally.
