Ries Graphics started as a small print shop in 1916. Four generations and nearly a hundred years later, to say we’ve expanded is an understatement. Our state of the art facility, expanded in 2011, is more than founder Peter J. Ries could have ever imagined.

Along with physically expanding the business, Don and Dan helped transition printing services to a more digital avenue in terms of design and file sharing.

Print is Far From Dead
Thanks to digital printing, marketers can have small, on-demand runs of printed materials that wouldn’t have been cost-effective in the days of offset printing. Of course, Ries Graphics offers both digital printing for small runs and offset printing for large runs.
While newspapers and magazines are in decline, print is still very much alive and thriving—thanks to primarily to direct mail and catalogs. Consider the 4.4% response rate of targeted direct mail vs email’s response rate of just .12%. Even online brands rely on print to complement their digital presence. Perfect example: AirBnB’s print magazine (AirBnBmag).
Then there are the countless ways businesses need print to connect with customers and prospects. From business cards to brochures, print is still very much a viable media for ad agencies to include in any marketing plan.
Not every client has gone all digital, and even those who have embraced all things digital still appreciate the immediacy of printed materials. Turn your new business presentation or success stories promotional piece into a professionally printed booklet for prospective clients.
Custom business cards on quality paper stock: A poorly printed business card printed on flimsy paper stock gets chucked in the nearest circular file in short order. Business cards that look and feel great convey value and rarely get thrown away.
Large format Posters and collateral materials for clients who regularly attend trade shows and exhibitions: Your clients need to stand out in a crowd, and high-quality posters, brochures, and flyers set them apart from the competition.
What is G7 Certification?
Technically speaking, G7 is a definition of how a grayscale appears, but it’s also a calibration method for adjusting an imaging device to simulate the grayscale standards set by G7. The “G” in G7 stands for “Gray,” while the “7” stands for the 7 primary and secondary solid ink colors: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black, Red, Green and Blue (commonly abbreviated as “CMYBRGB.”)
G7 certification means you get the same color output on different printing devices (or even different print vendors) so that colors are consistently accurate across all print devices.
