The story began thirteen years ago, when two friends acknowledged they wanted more from life.


The story began thirteen years ago, when two friends acknowledged they wanted more from life. More time to spend with their young, growing families. More financial freedom and control. More of their personal beliefs and values reflected in a brand. More opportunities and rewards for hard-working team members. 


A lot of companies have cool cultures, but not many can say they've earned a national reputation for being a great place to work. While we don’t need awards to tell us the culture here is special, we’re grateful to stand out because of it. After all, it’s our award-winning culture that allows us to recruit the best people, set (and achieve) bigger goals, and enjoy the daily work life.

  • FORTUNE 2017
    Ranked #32 among the list of 100 Best Medium Workplaces, recognized as a best place to work by Fortune for the third consecutive year.
  • INC. MAGAZINE 2017
    An Inc. 5000 hall-of-famer, we made the list for the seventh consecutive year. It’s thanks to our consistent growth rate, currently 220% over the last three years.

  • GLASSDOOR 2017
    Based on our ratings and reviews from team members, Glassdoor named us to their list of Best Places to Work.

    Entreprenuer ranked us #5 - yes, fifth - on their list of Top Company Cultures in the large-company category.


We’re not talking free snacks, Casual Fridays, or an in-office gym. Those are great, but they’re just perks that live within four office walls and don’t apply when people head home. Our culture, on the other hand, is something that exists within us. Most of our team works remotely across the U.S. And despite the geographical differences, we still have a culture each person knows by heart and lives out by action.

Why Print? Our consistent growth rate has landed us on the Inc. 5000 for seven consecutive years. But despite our progress, the digital era still has people wondering why we choose to build our business in a traditional industry. So, here’s the easy answer: Print works for us. And, more importantly, it works for our partners and it’s what our residents want.

The feel. The smell. The look. The sound. Print engages the senses in a way digital never will. It offers the eyes a much-needed screen break. It’s a simple tool… no threat of viruses and no dependency on WiFi to be kept up to date on local stories. For our advertisers, print’s audience is controlled, intentional, and specific in a way that other advertising opportunities can’t be. And printed products are lasting, which means our publications remain on the coffee tables of residents for as long as they like.
