Offset printing for Milkweed Editions

Since 1984, we have been helping publishers and individuals find the most competitively priced offset printing through our network of offset printers.

When customers request large or complex print runs that aren’t a good fit for our in-house digital press, we use our network of offset printers to help fill their needs. We have high internal standards for our work, and that is no different when working with outside vendors. All of the offset printers we work with have been thoroughly vetted and tested, minimizing the risk of the process so that you know you are getting a quality product.
