Digital Presses


We have partnered with Xerox for our digital printing options. Digital printing is highly versatile! Our team can do short runs as low as 1 and still get high quality reproduction.


We are also able to print Multiple versions and Variable data. Variable data includes things such as addressing postcards, adding personalization to a letter and even swapping out images on a brochure.


As a result, this variability helps tailor your message to obtain maximum output for your client.

Offset Presses


Our array of Sheet-fed offset presses gives us the flexibility to quote your project on the best piece of equipment so we can meet your budget. Often large runs are more economical on offset presses and also allow us to print on many different types of house stocks.


Our Adast 755 is a 5 color press that produces beautiful lithographic reproductions. This is a DI press or direct image press has many environmental benefits. Since the plates are imaged directly on the press there are no hazardous chemicals that are used to develop the image. Also, the press is waterless so there are no fountain solutions that have to be disposed of.


With a 4 color 17” web press we can run very large runs more economically than digital equipment. For the uninitiated, that is a printing press that uses rolls of paper.

State of the art large format presses are perfect for a variety of projects including vehicle wraps, signage, trade show displays, banner, labels and much more!


We have an HP L360 that can print on a variety of substrates up to 64” wide, including 3M Adhesive Vehicle Vinyl, Window Perforation, Canvas, and Photo Realistic Poster Paper, Booth Skins and more. This Latex press produces high quality stunning images. If you want to make a big impression ask how we can help.


Our Scitex FB500 UV Flatbed Press can print on boards up to 5’ x 10’ including aluminum composite, foam core, corrugated plastic, wood, you name it. Some typical products produced on this are real estate, building, and trade show signs.



After printing we can finish your product in a variety of ways: fold, die cut, score, staple, perforate, coil binding and other options. We have good old-fashioned Miehle Vertical and Heidelberg cylinder die-cutting press. Our team uses this to die-cut shapes in paper, or cut holes for door hangers, keg collars and other specialty items. The sky is the limit for developing interesting pieces.


We employ a Colex 5’ x 10’ High-speed Router to finish products like raised letters for sign application cutting out point of purchase displays and other contour cutting from printed images on our Flatbed and Latex printers.


We have the ability to produce up to an 80 page saddle stitched booklets with our Horizon SPF /FC-20a Booklet maker.

I have been using Creative Composition for approximately ten years for my direct mail needs. I have found Mark and his staff to provide exceptional service to me during that time. They have always hit my deadlines when needed. In addition, I have always found Creative Composition to look out for my best interest to help me achieve the best ROI. I have enjoyed our relationship and look forward to working with them for years to come!

Thank you for helping me look good! After the HVAC business I managed sold for $5 million, I started traveling North America as a consultant to help other HVAC business owners do the same. I have to give your team at Creative Comp credit for your marketing expertise. It was a huge contributor to my success.
As a consultant/business coach, I have been thanked over and over again form dozens of companies for introducing them to the team at Creative. Thank you for following through and giving them the same great service that you gave me.

We trust their expertise, and are thankful for their attentiveness throughout the design and production process. Creative's products continuously exceed our expectations, and that is why we keep going back!

Amy Lewis Hormann - Program Coordinator
Cross-Cultural Leadership Center, CSU Chico

Creative composition is like having a marketing expert at my fingertips. Their service is fast, and their product is excellent, and their follow-up is consistent. They ask just the right questions and just enough questions--not so many it becomes a burden for me to explain the vision of our marketing strategy, and not too few questions as to create re-work and/or miscommunication. I can't quite speak to the prices of Creative Composition because their service has kept me from looking elsewhere! I would absolutely recommend Creative Composition to any company looking to increase their brand recognition in the marketplace and gain more customers.

We have been using Creative Comp for all of our
printing needs for many years and we have never

We've partnered with Creative Composition primarily because of accuracy, competitive pricing, and beyond-the-call customer service. Competitive shifts in our numerous markets often require last minute changes to our promotion plans, and Creative Composition has always been responsive and flexible when deadlines are tight and orders are complicated.

Amy LaBanca

Creative Composition is a longtime "Marketing Partner" and resource here at We Care. Mark Hendry and his staff are quite amazing ...it goes without saying that We Care would not continue to go back to Creative Composition over and over these many years if we weren't 100%+ totally thrilled with their work. Their analysis of our market is outstanding, as it pertains to our direct mail campaigns ...and I can't say enough good things about the quality of work that the graphic department produces.

Larry Burg
We Care Plumbing, Heating & Air

At Feather Falls Casino, we have been working with the crew at Creative Composition for over seven years. During that time, they have provided us with nothing short of exemplary service.

During our time with Creative Composition, we have tested their capabilities to the extreme. From overloading their production facilities by dropping a large number of jobs on them at one time, to sending them complex jobs with multiple printing and finishing options - we've found that they always make the deadlines, and they do it with a smile.

Composition has always shown a willingness to go the extra mile for us - they are truly a business "partner" in every sense of the word.
