2000  Stolze is featured in Printing Impressions magazine "In the Trenches" that chronicles the company's growth and tells about Stolze's personal approach in everything they do, especially when it comes to their clientele. "We work on a personal level with our customers. When our customers come in for press checks, there are several faces they feel comfortable with, not just their salesperson," Phil said.

Sustainability...

One of our guiding philosophies is being a good steward to the environment, and we continually evaluate every phase of our operation to find greater efficiencies and greener alternatives. As the top St. Louis commercial printer, we strive to provide you with information on producing communications collateral in the most environmentally friendly way without sacrificing quality.

When we built our new facility in 2006, we designed it to be energy efficient from the start.

Being green also means using technology that doesn't consume or emit hazardous materials while generating little or no waste. That's why we use printing inks and chemicals with extremely low volatile organic chemicals.

Energy1

Because of our 100% commitment to wind power, we are recognized as an EPA Green Power Leader

Energy2

We embrace technologies like print on demand and variable printing to reduce the impact of wasteful overprinting. Our Web2Print option also helps us increase the production process's overall efficiency that helps us reduce energy usage and our carbon footprint.

Besides recycling cardboard, plastic, and printing plates, we recycle more than 2,400 tons of waste paper per year.

Energy3

Paper is critical to the printing industry, but where the paper is sourced matters, as does responsible forest management and conservation. That's why we are a Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified printer.
