At True Leaf we are print brokers, not a print shop. The print distributor industry often avoids the use of the words “print brokers” and “print distributors” because those words could make it sound like we are “middle men”.
Here’s why our role as print brokers is so helpful to our clients:
It means that we are both BUYERS and SELLERS of print.
Print shops are only sellers of print – they are not also buyers. As both a buyer AND a seller of print we understand and appreciate the interests and responsibilities each side of the equation faces.
As a buyer and a seller of print we share in those shared interests and responsibilities, and we are very skilled at managing print jobs as a result. We’ll tell you if your print job is not a good fit for any of our partners. A local print shop is rewarded for bringing jobs “in house” – work they cannot produce on their equipment is sent to other shops, usually at increased cost. Instead, at True Leaf we are rewarded for serving you, our customers.
As print brokers we are in a unique position. One aspect of our unique position is that we sell products manufactured by companies who do not sell to end users. These companies only sell to “the trade”. They eagerly embraced working with a company like True Leaf – we function as an intermediary to direct selling print shops all over the country. That is because our extensive knowledge and experience eliminates the risks that both you and print shops take when working with one another, especially during the very first engagement.
Working with True Leaf also means that your print jobs will be produced by printers who are uniquely suited to the specific types of projects. Those qualifications lead more creative options with paper types and printing techniques, and often to better pricing.

“The Most Successful Direct Mail Postcard Campaign”
According to the buyer at the time, this post card mailing was the most successful direct mail postcard campaign ever produced by Shipley Energy.
Our company (then known as Marc Laucks and Company) managed the graphic design, printing, and mailing/fulfillment for this project. We also assisted with the formulation of the “offer” (copy writing).
