If we are the best at what we do, through our ingenuity and innovation we will help our customers grow their top line.

Harry V. Quadracci Founder, 1936-2002

The industry innovator

From day one, we have had a single purpose: to do things differently and better. So it’s no surprise that we’re at the forefront of industry firsts worldwide, driving better performance for our clients through innovation.

If you are looking for “a better way,” we’ll be right at your side. In fact, more often than not, we’ll be leading the way. Holding down the total cost of print and distribution. Maximizing the effectiveness of your print content. And connecting it with other media channels to improve your performance.

We are so much more than ink on paper. Let us prove it to you. Through continual innovation, we’ll provide real solutions to help you save more, sell more and connect more powerfully with your consumers.

Innovation is in every department. It’s in every person, no matter what their role here. That’s how we keep our clients one big step ahead of their competition.

Innovative people drive performance

As industry leaders, we’re the only printer with a dedicated research and development (R&D) subsidiary, QuadTech. That keeps us – and you – on the leading edge of industry innovation. You benefit from our breakthrough solutions well before they even occur to other printers.

But we don’t rely exclusively on our R&D division for groundbreaking ideas. Our culture empowers employees to think like owners and generate value-added solutions for customers.

The Quad Idea Catapult is a formal system to harvest and incubate ideas from our employees. For example, an idea from a press employee resulted in an automated quality control process that reduces errors. That’s the kind of forward thinking we cultivate.

Everyone at Quad is an innovator, driving better performance for our clients.

Distribution is the biggest cost driver in our business. Quad works to minimize these costs with the efficiencies of co-mail, and by continually lobbying with the Postmaster to try to keep rates as low as possible.
