What we Can Do

Unsure of what types of printing services we offer? If in doubt, reach out to us! For a quick (but summarized) reference of our services, we have compiled a list for you to provide a brief snapshot of our most popular printing and finishing processes available:

  • Black Printing – Going for a classic look that won’t go out of style? Keep it simple with black ink, available on our digital and litho presses.
  • Color Printing – Go bold with vibrant colors! We offer color printing that ranges anywhere from 1 to 4 colors; these options are available on both our digital or litho presses.
  • Crash Imprinting – Make your mark with crash imprinting on one of our letterpresses, perfect for carbonless forms.
  • Envelope Printing – Are you looking to make a big statement? Talk to us about envelopes for your next large mailing. We can print ready made envelopes, or we can print flat and convert so you have a perfect envelope every time, whether you need 1,00 or 1,000,000.
  • Plate-making – Whether you’re looking for lithographic printing or someone to burn press plates for your own presses, we’ve got you covered. Our Pre-Press Department is direct-to-plate, meaning we handle your electronic files from start to finish.
  • Lithographic Printing – The original. The classic. The staple of the printing industry. Printed with plates and rollers, consider the wide range of possibilities that litho printing can offer to you with its rich colors and a plethora of finishing options.
  • Digital Printing – Looking for something fresh and new? Think about going plate-less with one of our digital presses.
  • Variable Data – If you’re planning a mailing, ask us about variable data and mailing services. We can print your mailer, the addresses, and work with a mailhouse to get your message out.
  • Finishing – While some projects are done the moment they come off the press, others may need a few extra steps. We offer a variety of finishing options to complete your project the way you envision it. Boldly go where no customer has gone before by combining any number of finishing processes to perfect your unique project. Ask us about thermal printing, embossing, foil-finish, scoring, stitching, binding, folding, perforating, die-cutting, shrink-wrapping drilling, and more!

For Returning Customers

One of the greatest benefits of being a returning customer is the ease of re-ordering printed materials. To make this process even easier, ask us about the services we offer to returning customers:

Running shells – If you print business cards, letterhead, or envelopes with us and your logo or design has more than two colors to it or if it requires additional processes such as engraving or foil-finish, then consider contacting us about shells. We can reduce costs and waiting time for you by printing large runs of logo-only stock to keep on hand. When you place an order, we can quickly imprint one to two colors on the stock. As the customer, you no longer have to wait for each piece to go through lengthy finishing processes and you receive the added benefit of a better price break and a lower overall cost.

Online ordering – For customers who reorder from a variety of products or want to see proofs prior to printing, setting up on online ordering portal is a great solution. We will work with you to set up a customized portal and stock it with a catalog of items specific to your business. If your company has a standard layout for products like envelopes, business cards, or letterhead, consider a variable data item. With variable data, you can enter your print information onto the online template and receive a print-ready preview of your file before submitting it. Portals are a great way to streamline your ordering process, and they make reordering easy! Contact us today for more information on establishing your own website portal.
