"Entrepreneurs Are Great At Dealing With Uncertainty And Also Very Good At Minimizing Risk. That's The Classic Entrepreneur!"

This line puts a smile on my face because it alludes to the excitement of not knowing what to expect but seeing a possible life-changing outcome.
Consistent, Repeatable Color and Quality.
We employ proprietary and industry standard Quality Control Process to ensure the best in consistency and repeatability that is available in the market. One of the reasons that WTP! is so late at getting into the gang run offerings was figuring out how we could embrace the opportunities to put multiple jobs on a form without sacrificing quality. Today, we are proud to announce that we have done that by using some of the methods that you can read more about on our sustainability page.
Expertise and Service that is second to none!
When you call WTP! you speak to a person who has many years of print experience and many more years of experience in the shop that they can get answers from to help you with your most complex project. Even our accounting department is staffed by people with printing background. If we can’t help you – no one can!
One business! One name! One focus!
Our entire business is based on our belief that brokering print will continue to grow and is becoming the most popular way for end users to purchase their printing needs.

We are here for one reason – to support the segment of printing that we all know as “Print Brokering”.

WTP! has obtained certification in accordance with the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) Chain of Custody Standards. The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is a nongovernmental, non-profit organization that promotes the responsible management of the world's forests. By adhering to practices listed in our FSC certification, we are a vital link in a "chain of custody" which ensures that forest products (in our case, paper) can be traced from their final manufactured product all the way back to the well-managed forests from which the raw materials were harvested.
Lean & Clean: The Responsible Way to Print!
|In addition to our many green certifications, we've also put into practice the principle of "Lean Manufacturing." This approach to manufacturing is inherently "green", and involves using modern technology and consumables to minimize waste and maximize efficiency.|
WTP! has implemented lean & clean manufacturing in several ways:
We invite you to discover how WTP!'s certified green, lean & clean services can help bring sustainability and value to your printing today!
- An all-digital, color-managed workflow has eliminated the need for costly & wasteful proofing systems.
- Digitally imaged printing plates are developed in our "Chem-free" processor which uses only non-toxic processing fluids that have a longer lifespan than traditional, more toxic chemicals.
- Computerized press controls deliver accurate color fast, minimizing makeready waste and allowing us to tightly monitor quality and consistency throughout the print run.
- Digital print capabilities for short-run jobs allow us to print only the quantity needed. In addition to the best quality available, our HP Indigo press offers non-toxic, long-lifespan consumables and uses considerably less energy than competing technologies.
- Computerized bindery equipment reduces waste and minimizes errors.
|WTP! uses soy and other vegetable-based inks that are Made in the USA and are less harmful to the environment than their petroleum-based counterparts. Soy and vegetable products are used in ink for their oils, which act as the vehicle for the ink pigments. There are several types of vegetable-based printing inks, including linseed (Flax), tung (Chinawood), castor, canola, and safflower. Soy is popular because it is a very stable material that exhibits excellent "wetting" properties which enhance its ability to carry solid pigments. Most manufacturers of soy and vegetable based inks today actually "blend" ingredients, much in the way a winemaker will blend grapes, in order to take advantage of the unique characteristics of each oil.|
All of our papers and synthetics are recyclable and you can freely print the recyclable logo on your printed projects.
WTP! has partnered with domestic suppliers for our core house coated papers and they are s Made in USA! It is an FSC Certified sheet that is responsibly manufactured to exceed all FSC and USA regulations. It is a higher quality sheet than most of the imported sheets that are being used today.
