In 1978, Joseph A. "Corky" Barras, Jr., along with his wife, Gwen, decided to open up a print shop. With a borrowed single color press and 300 square feet of space, their journey began.
Fast forward to present day...
Along with their son, Joseph III, the Barrases have built what started out as a tiny print shop into a full-blown professional full color commercial printing company that boasts seven printing presses and employs fifteen local customer service and printing craftspeople.
Our latest press addition is an envelope jet press which allows us to print 60,000 envelopes per hour, and can print two colors on two sides in one pass. Few printing companies possess a jet press, which is specifically designed to provide quality, speed and the economy which comes with both.
Jefferson Printing Company, located in Metairie, Louisiana, was one of the first printing companies in the Metro New Orleans area to make the move from conventional and outdated pre-press technologies to the day-to-day use of Computer to Plate Technology (CTP).
In 2000, we added typesetting and graphic design capabilities to our list of services. Our typesetting and design department is made up of the latest computers and platforms, professional graphic design and printing software titles, and a complete array of digital pre-press work flow hardware and software. Our staff has the expertise and the tools necessary to give all your printed documents a polished and professional look.
We currently occupy six thousand square feet of office and production space, and are looking to increase that space to accommodate the growth of our company.
Thank you to all of our clients past and present for placing your confidence in us and allowing us to grow our business along with your needs!
