Our Philosophy

Autumn Press adheres to the philosophy that not only must we produce the finest quality print products at a competitive price, we must also be a business responsive to our employees, our community, and the environment.

From our support of working families to innovations in print technologies and processes that lessen our impact on the environment, when you choose Autumn Press you choose a print partner that is responsive, respected, and responsible.

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 person 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.

Community Non-Profits

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 www.abgsl.org

Recycled Paper

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%.

“Plateless” Printing

The Berkeley community is proud of Autumn Press for a variety of reasons including their open mindedness and willingness to try new sustainable practices. By adopting the Azura TU plate, Autumn Press can reduce water, waste and disposal costs while gaining peace of mind with a system that delivers consistent, repeatable results.
