Autumn Press Supports Working Families
Autumn employees are proud members of Central Labor Council and Graphic Communications Union District Council No. 2. We’re pleased to offer all our valued employees good wages, safe and pleasant working conditions, and the health and retirement benefits every working American deserves. Customers may be concerned about how treating employees well can impact print prices – the fact is, Autumn Press prices are as competitive as those shops with cheaper labor and poorer working conditions.
Autumn Press is a proud supporter of the Albany Berkeley Girls Softball League. The League was founded on two basic principles: basic skills development and active participation — and having fun. Learn more at http://www.abgsl.org
We are also pleased to support Los Mapaches, which plays traditional Andean music. More than 40 young musicians, ranging from kindergartners to high school students, study and perform locally. Vocal numbers are primarily sung in Spanish, although the group also sings numbers in native Andean languages with some bilingual arrangements as well. Learn more at losmapaches.org.
Helping our youth and helping our environment is our mission, so we are proud to support Earth Team, whose mission is to create a new generation of environmental leaders by introducing—into the classroom and the community—environmental experiences that are so active and engaging that they inspire dedication to a healthy environment.

Autumn Press specializes in offering the most, and some of the best, recycled stocks anywhere, as well as the use of high-quality soybean-based inks.
CNG-Fueled Delivery Vans
Autumn Press’ delivery vans join more than 130,000 light-and medium-duty vehicles using Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). The use of CNG as a fuel reduces vehicular exhaust emissions significantly. Carbon Monoxide emissions are reduced by 70 to 90% and Hydrocarbon emissions by 40 to 60% as compared to vehicles that use the conventional fuel - Petrol. Carbon Dioxide emissions, a cause for global warming, are also reduced significantly by 10%.
Unlike traditional processes, plateless printing processes do not use printing plates or any other type of physical image carrier. Instead, they rely on sophisticated computer software and hardware to control the printing elements. The result is virtually zero production of toxic waste..
