Leaving the planet in better shape than we found it is a top priority at Jakprints, and we want to get everyone excited to take part in environmental initiatives. We’re always looking for new ways to increase our positive impact on the environment, and we have partnered with the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park to expand our tree planting initiative and collaborate with an awesome organization.
You might’ve heard that we plant a tree with every order placed, and we’re always looking to join in on other tree planting opportunities. When we heard the CVNP was planting 250 trees as part of their Founders’ Day centennial celebration on August 20th, we knew we had to get involved.
Founders’ Day gives the community an opportunity to give back to the park through trail work, tree planting and the removal of invasive plants. A group of our incredible employees volunteered their time to help plant 250 trees in the park. These trees will help fill the tree canopy and improve the habitat for the native wildlife. We’re thrilled to give back to the park and work with an organization that shares a passion for nature.
National Parks everywhere are going all out to observe this milestone. Find out how a National Park near you is celebrating a century of service and party in your park!
It was a no brainer when the opportunity was presented to partner with the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Seeing the breathtaking images of the park roll off the press for their member magazine was a real pleasure, and reading about what the park does for the community made us want to be more involved. We’re giving back with monetary donations, volunteering our time for park service and brainstorming new and creative ways to use our resources to give back to the park.
Whether you have a National Park in your backyard or you have to travel to explore one, these parks are important to our environment. We have to work together to conserve them so generations to come can enjoy them in the same ways we do.

Stop the presses! No, really. Stop them. The future of eco friendly printing has arrived! Jakprints has teamed with Heidelberg USA to bring the Speedmaster XL 75 Anicolor press to Cleveland. It’s the very first of its kind in North America!
Our new Heidelberg press is a massive jolt to the printing business thanks to its efficiency, versatility and environmental friendliness.
The Speedmaster XL 75 Anicolor cuts down paper waste by nearly 90%, reducing waste to between 1.6 million and 2.4 million press sheets per year. On average, we’ll be saving 16 trees a day!

On September 21, some of our employees from Jakprints and IndieMerchandising volunteered at the Cleveland Walk to End Alzheimer’s!
The event, which took place at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo, drew more than 4,000 people and raised upwards of $290,000 for Alzheimer’s awareness and research. Our very own Kit, Kate, Aruhn and Wanida were on hand to pass out water and granola bars to those participating. Congratulations to the Cleveland Alzheimer’s Association, the volunteers and participants who made the event a success!
Screen Printing has a long and storied history that spans over 1,000 years of artistic and industrial pursuits. In the western world during the 1930’s the term “Serigraphy” popped up to denote when the process was being used toward a creative end. Artists like Warhol and Lichtenstein helped to strengthen the interest in screen printed artwork, utilizing the process throughout the Pop Art movement. Meanwhile, advertisers and promoters were using screen printing techniques to their own ends creating marketing materials for products, services, conventions and sporting events.
