In addition, the company works with the best trade shops in the area to deliver a wide array of offset printing services.
Copy Factory opened in 1997. The current owners acquired the company in February 2007. Implementing best practices gathered from years working for the areas top printing companies, we are committed to providing Copy Factorys customers with on-time, quality work at affordable prices. And with a passion for customer service and satisfaction, we believe a successful project starts with treating the customer with courtesy and respect.
The companys facility in Palo Alto, California, houses all the equipment needed to manufacture practically any type of short-run digital printing and bindery project. We are particularly well-suited for shorter run documentation, quality bound books, booklets, black & white and color digital printing and large format work. Located two miles from Stanford, we offer students and staff a 10% discount.
We serve customers large and small, ranging from our own Barron Park neighbors, nearby Silicon Valley tech firms and print brokers to clients located in San Francisco, Brooklyn, and Seattle.
Whether for short run digital or longer run offset, Copy Factory specializes in affordable, quality color printing. Our prices are lower than FedExKinkos; plus we take an interest in and bring our expertise to each and every project, producing professional quality work and meeting customers deadlines.
On the digital side, we team our Konica Minolta CPP650 from IKON, a Xerox DocuColor 2045 and even our desktop Ricoh Aficio 410DN to offer a quality color printing solution for a broad array of requirements, from high-end corporate data sheets, brochures and booklets to personal projects like thesis, newsletters, and special event programs.
And, yes, we do "color copies" from hard copy but we really prefer to print from a digital file which makes every copy an original.
For offset color, weve partnered with locally owned bay area trade companies, who only deal with companies like Copy Factory. Consequently, they are able to offer much more affordable pricing because these firms cut overhead costs related to supporting sales and customer service operations. And they are more focused on quality in order to cultivate a loyal customer base composed of experienced industry professionals.
We also have an Epson 10000 inkjet plotter for indoor large format color and partner with the areas best trade shops for outdoor banners and signs.
In addition to stocking our self service copiers with 100% post consumer waste recycled paper, weve made a commitment to use an earth-friendly line of digital color copy paper.
Our black and white self service machines use Boise Aspen 100. We carry all three common sizes of this 100% recycled paper. According to our paper vendor, Kelly Paper, this stock is becoming increasingly popular for everyday office use. Its also available for longer run, full service projects.
For color digital printing, we are proud to feature the Mohawk line of papers. Mohawk has made a commitment to earth-friendly practices not only in terms of its products and manufacturing processes, but also including its corporate citizenship. For instance, all of the companys papers are made using 100% wind power. In addition, the company is "carbon neutral" and offers the only 100% post consumer recycled 28# color copy paper available.
We also recycle all our paper waste and use a hybrid fuel vehicle.
Keep in mind that recycled paper can be a bit more expensive due to market conditions and manufacturing costs. But, if your budget allows, using recycled paper on your project can help make a difference in creating a cleaner and greener planet.
