Our machinery and resources allow us to produce a wide variety of printed products. Utilizing four offset printing presses and a variety of digital presses and machines, we are able to print paper products of all types with a maximum 42inch width. Maximum length of a printed project is determined by the length we can find the media in. Some large format materials come in 10 foot rolls, some in 60 foot rolls. We can provide black & white, one color, two color, or full color work. Envelopes, business cards, posters, handbills, letterheads, business forms, booklets, and newsletters are our main paper specialties, but we can work to provide custom work that fits within our technical capacity. Our shop currently has a brand new 8 color auto-press and a 4 color manual press to print t-shirts and other textiles, including posters, stickers, patches, and yard signs. We offer in-house graphic design and manipulation, as well as reasonably priced copy writing services. We can meet nearly any standard dimension printed paper or textile need, from conception to finished product.

  • WORKER OWNED

    Every worker at P&L Printing is also an owner, and takes part in the management and operation of the business. We are a democratically run, cooperative shop, with no bosses and no supervisors. Because of this, we are able to offer lower prices while ensuring that our work conditions are exactly the way we want them to be.

  • Environmentally Friendly

    At P&L, we strive to recycle nearly every piece of waste we produce. Most of our paper selection is recycled and Forest Stewardship Council certified. We use eco-friendly toners, inks, and solvents whenever possible.

  • Union Shop

    The worker-owners of P&L Printing are all members of both the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW Industrial Union 450) and the Communications Workers of America (CWA Local 7777). P&L prides itself on being able to provide quality products as well as quality of life for all its workers.

  • Movement Strong

    We don't just print for organizations, programs, and projects working for a better world, we are actively involved with organizations, programs and projects working for a better world. We take pride in our print work and value our customers because we're involved in the same social movements they are. P&L's worker-owners are heavily active in a wide variety of local community based and grassroots organizations working toward social justice.

MEET THE WORKER-OWNERS OF P&L

Cooperatives are the only form of business centered around membership, and member and community benefit is at the core of the cooperative model. Worker cooperative businesses are owned and run by their members, the people who work in them, and they operate for the benefit of these members.
