An Innovative History
Founded in 1968 as a Goodway Copy Center, our experience spans three decades, almost unimanagable technological advances in printing, and a paradigm shift in information distribution. Over the years, we have gleaned the best technologies from each era of advancement and integrated them to maximize the efficiencies of each. From mini Web presses, to direct-to-plate digital printing, to CD duplication, to digital color, we make the most of our entire production line to produce high quality work without sacrificing service or value.

Company Milestones
We began specializing in providing technical documentation to Silicon Valley’s electronics industry.

We were named Inc. Magazine’s list of the 500 fastest-growing privately held companies in the United States.

We pioneered the use of computer-to-plate technology for the printing of black and white documentation and facilitated the production of a vast suite of publications for Northern Telecom (later Nortel Networks).

We began to expand our capacity in high-quality color printing with the addition of our first 4-color Heidelberg press.

We entered the Vendor Managed Inventory arena, successfully managing the worldwide documentation needs of Nortel Networks. Because of our pioneering work in computer-to-plate technology, we were invited to participate as a presenter in a panel discussion at Seybold/Boston.

Our success in managing Nortel’s documentation needs earned us the distinction of “Nortel Supplier of the Year.”

2001 to today
Continuing to focus on technological innovation, we were the first printer in Northern California to acquire the new 6-color Heidelberg CD74, which offers not only legendary Heidelberg performance, but also the latest in digital workflow and color control using pixel-based spectrophotometry. More recently we’ve added UV coating capability, HP Indigo digital color printing, and advanced saddlestitching capacity.
