green business seal of approval

"We work for a world where all people have enough, where all communities are healthy and safe, and where the bounty of the Earth is preserved for all the generations to come."
The Green America Vision


We are a small print shop that takes great pride in our goal of providing affordable quality printing while focusing on environmental sustainability and social responsibility.

We have been offering traditional offset printing and bindery services to non-profits, environmental groups, politically progressive groups, unions and small businesses since 1980.

We started with the idea that printing is a service, a way of helping people communicate their ideas, concerns and dreams for a better community.

As members of Green America, we believe that the purchasing and investing decisions we make either promote social justice and environmental sustainability or work against those goals.

We are responsible and conscientious. And we try to offer quality services at an affordable price within a green printing framework.

We are proud members of CWA Local 3611 and can affix the Union label to printed material when requested.



» NEW « We can now offer short run digital color! This means that we can print full color business cards, brochures, posters, etc. in the small quantities that most people want. » NEW «

We specialize in the offset printing of newsletters, brochures, stationery, booklets, business cards and most anything a non-profit or small business needs to function.

We focus on the short to medium press runs (250 to 50,000) of one and two color printing. Also called Spot Color printing.

With our combination of cutting, folding and collating machines, we're able to do most bindery operations in house.

We can also provide graphic design for small projects.

(We do have some size and quantity limitations due to our staff size and equipment size, so please call or write.)
