Family owned since 1948,
Express Color is your full service spot
and full color printing resource. We’ve been successful
for over 60 years because we listen to our clients – and
we succeed in making happy customers.
We specialize in short to medium run, 4-color process and
general commercial printing, for items such as brochures, sell
sheets, catalogs, booklets, business cards, rack cards, instruction manuals
and folding cartons. Depending on the product, your job will
be turned around usually in 2-6 days from receipt of
your print ready digital file. We love the small, high-quality
jobs that the big printers hate.
Our four and five color work is printed on a 5-color Heidelberg
press for unbeatable quality. The 5th color unit is frequently
used for a varnish or a PMS ink. Our one and two color general
commercial printing is done on a Heidelberg 2-color press
with perfector. This press is very competitively priced for
1 and 2-color high quality printing. We use only quality metal plates on ALL of our presses.
Multiple Proofing Options...
Depending on the product, we offer three different proofing options:
- FREE PDF Proof - Fast and reliable! Shows your color breaks, allows you to check content and position and it’s all done via the internet.
- FREE Black and White Fax - This option works well for low cost, simple jobs, so that you can check content and position.
- Hard Copy Color Calibrated Proof - Color accurate proof which most closely represents the printing
characteristics of your file. Hard copy color proofs are made on ICC calibrated devices
and are nearly identical to the more expensive and time
consuming traditional laminate proofs. All of our proofs
are made prior to printing plates so corrections can
be made without wasting costly materials.
