Print’s not dead. It’s soaring.

Radix Media is a worker-owned and operated union print shop and publisher based in Brooklyn, New York, offering offset, letterpress, and digital printing services, as well as foil stamping, embossing, die-cutting, and paper duplexing. We print business cards, annual reports, posters, invitations, and much more. We also offer graphic design services ranging from logo creation and asset design to full book layout. Our name comes from the Latin root of the word radical which means to get to the root.

From the very beginning, we have been dedicated to keeping the printed word alive. It is what moves us, what motivates us, what pushes us to come to work in the morning, every single day. Browse our portfolio and see the many projects we have brought to life. We also frequently update our blog where we post interviews with artisans and activists, contributor profiles of our authors and artists, and even design tips to make your project come to life.

Print matters. Take your project to the next level and let your dreams soar.

Go local.

We are not some faceless company that will outsource your job to another country. We live and work in Brooklyn, New York. Doing business locally helps foster community, and keeps our New York neighborhood economies going strong.

When you print with Radix Media, you’re working with human beings. We don’t expect you to hit “submit” on some web-form and hope for the best. We are always available to answer questions and walk you through different scenarios to the best of our ability, so that you get the best printed product possible.

For more information on the people behind the printing, head over to Meet the Workers. For more information on our process, check out our Printing Processes page.

Worker-Owned. Union Strong. Eco-Friendly.

At Radix Media, we live our values every single day.

We’re worker-owned, because we believe that workers should have control over their workplace conditions and have a voice in the decisions that shape their lives. We are proud to operate a democratic business with no hierarchy and no bosses.

We’re union strong, because we know that without unions, we’d all be working 14-hour days and so would our children. (Note that our children appreciate unions, too.) We’re unionized with Local 1 of the Amalgamated Lithographers Union/International Brotherhood of Teamsters.

We’re eco-friendly, because we know that we only have one planet and that we should take care of it. We use 100% post-consumer recycled paper whenever possible, low-VOC inks in our presses, and dampening systems that are free of alcohol.

But wait, there’s more.

In addition to being a commercial printer, we are also an independent publisher. We released our first title, Aftermath: Explorations of Loss & Grief, in April 2018. See our publishing page for more information on our book projects. We also print our own line of notebooks, postcards, greeting cards, and posters for both wholesale and retail—check out our online store and see them for yourself!

We love owning the means of production and putting what we create out into the world, but we also love collaborating with other people. If you’re an author or an artist looking for someone to publish your work, just get in touch with us. To be interviewed or to write guest posts on our blog, reach out to our editor.

If you’re a retailer looking to carry our products, please see our Wholesale Orders page for more information.
