About Printing Partners of Indianapolis, Indiana

Printing Partners is a local family-owned commercial printer with a history that dates back to 1924. Current ownership has been involved since 1989 and has grown the business from six employees to more than 115 through growth and acquisition. During that time, Printing Partners has become a full-service, ISO-certified, G7® Master Printer. Printing Partners currently operates its primary facility at 929 W. 16th Street.

With both offset and digital capabilities along with in-house mailing services and finishing, Printing Partners serves a broad range of business and institutional clients. Many of its clients do a significant amount of direct mail and Printing Partners has the expertise and equipment in place to do it in the most cost-effective way.

Printing Partners Indianapolis also has a strong position in central Indiana’s not-for-profit arts market, and it serves a growing list of not-for-profit social service agencies. Another distinguishing characteristic of its client base is its breadth and diversity. No single client approaches ten percent of total sales.

The differential advantage that distinguishes Printing Partners is a “can do” attitude that is backed by experienced employees, a wide range of equipment, and technology. Printing Partners’ employees have the collective knowledge to engineer jobs to achieve the desired outcome at the best cost.

In the past decade the market has not been kind to the printing industry. Printing Partners’ response has been to make strategic investments in technology to enhance efficiency and to control costs. The outcome is a lean organization that has the capacity to grow.

FSC Chain of Custody Certification

The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) is an independent, not for profit, nongovernmental organization established to support environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, and economically viable management of the world’s forests.

The FSC® chain of custody (CoC) is the path taken by products from the forest, or in the case of recycled materials from the moment when the material is reclaimed, to the point where the product is sold with an FSC® claim and/or it is finished and FSC® labelled.
FSC® certification of such management systems is designed to provide a credible assurance that products which are sold with an FSC® claim originate from well-managed forests, controlled sources, reclaimed materials, or a mixture of these. FSC® CoC certification thereby facilitates the transparent flow of goods made from such materials through the supply chain. By purchasing our FSC® certified products, you help take care of the world’s forests
