Star Printing is still around. It's now called Star Print Mail Inc. and is located in West Chester. Here's a bit about its history from the company website:
"The presses started rolling on April 2, 1906 in Coatesville, PA, then a bustling steel town, servicing many of the area's growing businesses, some of whom are loyal customers to this day.
The Swansons updated Star Printing from a classic letterpress shop to a modern offset pressroom allowing us to more readily meet the needs of our customers."
These days, Star Printing handles brochures, flyers, business cards, booklets, catalogs, newsletters and direct-mail materials. But it's not clear whether they're still the go-to printing company for personal yuletide messages.
Also, I like their old logo, left, better than their new logo...
