Proud to be printers
There’s something to be said for commercial printers who are as enthusiastic about the industry as they were decades ago. That’s Journeyman Press.
While acknowledging print’s changing role, as well as customers’ preference for shorter turnaround times and a dependence on multiple channels, we know that sacrificing print quality is not an option. We never have to sacrifice quality. Producing work of the highest quality is our core principle.
We’ll print for you. We’ll handle your mailings. And we’ll offer suggestions to improve your jobs and render them more efficient and effective. Doesn’t this sound like the perfect print partner?
What Journeyman can do for you
Printing is the very heart of our business. We offer a full range of commercial and digital printing, featuring multiple Heidelberg offset presses (2-, 4-, and 6-color) and HP Indigo digital equipment.
Journeyman occupies a 60,000-squarefoot facility in Newburyport, MA. This allows us to keep all of our services – from a modern prepress department to our comprehensive mailing department – under one roof. We offer pick-up and delivery services throughout New England.
Eco-friendly manufacturing is important to us, and we’re very proud of our environmental record. All paper waste is recycled. All solvents and printing inks contain the highest recycled and recyclable content possible. Paper purchases utilize recycled/recyclable fiber whenever possible.
In printing, there’s color and then there’s G7 color. Journeyman has achieved G7 Master Printer status. This means we’ve undergone a rigorous certification procedure by IDEAlliance, an independent industry association that develops technical standards for the industry.
As a G7 Master Printer, we can match proof-to-print across any substrate, in any printing process, and using any ink. You get higher print quality faster, and your print materials will be consistent job after job. Plus, you’ll spend far less time on press checks!
There are only about 1000 G7 Master Printers across the entire world – and just 17 in Massachusetts.
To be a union printer means that production processes are done by union members; that is, members of a particular labor union. The Journeyman Press is proud to be affiliated for generations with Boston Newspaper Printing Pressmen’s Union Local #3, GCC/International Brotherhood of Teamsters and the Boston Allied Printing Trades Council.
Customers who request a union label for their print materials typically work for government agencies, political organizations, colleges or universities, or other unions. The union label (also called a “printer’s mark”) shows support for labor unions.
Journeyman is one of very few union printers in New England. Our union label can be added to your printed project upon request.
