Our History

Before founding Progressive Printing in 1978, Phil Gray was a high school teacher, instructing his pupils in the art of offset printing. With Progressive Printing, he wanted to create a brand based on responsive, smart and dependable service while sharing his knowledge of printing with his clients, just as he had with his students. He believed that working closely with clients was the only way to ensure that they got exactly what they wanted and for a price they were happy with. He set a goal to be completely honest with them and to always make deliveries on time.

Phil*s strategy was a success, and with the help of his wife Terry, Progressive Printing grew into a mid-size commercial printer with a strong foundation of loyal customers.


Our Process

We pride ourselves in our efficiency and attention to detail. Take a look at our video, which we created to walk you through our time-tested process step-by-step.

Our Environmental Policy

At Progressive Printing, we care about the environment. We use only soy and vegetable oil based inks. Instead of conventional petroleum-based lithographic inks, we minimize our emissions by using inks with 2 percent or less VOC (volatile organic content). Not only are these inks brighter and more vibrant than petroleum-based inks, but they are also more easily removed from paper during the recycling process.

We offer both coated and uncoated recycled paper, all containing between 15 and 100 percent post-consumer waste. This helps to cut down on environmentally-hazardous fertilizers stripping nutrients from soil, deforestation, and energy expenditure at the paper mills.

We recycle. Our paper trimmings go to a recycling company, our useable leftover paper to public schools, and our imprinted aluminum plates to a scrap aluminum company for recycling.

We discard responsibly. Between our low-VOC (volatile organic content) press washes, corrugated waste material separation, and removal of leftover ink by a licensed hazardous materials company, we strive to minimize our ecological footprint.
