That first impression. The clarity of an unforgettable image. A message that engages all senses. The very finest details. Your work deserves a printer that marries old-world craftsmanship with cutting edge technology to create something beautiful, compelling, and enduring.
Quartier is that printer. Based in Syracuse, NY, we've built a stellar reputation in the last 40 years working for some of the world's largest corporations. But in printing, you can't rest on your laurels.
That's why we continue to invest in machinery, software, and staff and continue to add services to our core printing and mailing business.
Today, Quartier offers online prepress, print-on-demand, complex to turnkey marketing services, and much more—adding value to the printed page and providing you the most effective, sharpest marketing materials ever.
There's more I could say about our approach—about how we work hand-in-hand with our clients, how we deliver high-quality products and services on time, every time—but I want Quartier's clients from Central New York and beyond to do the talking on my behalf.

If you are looking for a print and mailing solutions provider that offers the lowest price regardless of quality and customer care, Quartier may not be for you. You see, we often match or beat other printers' prices, although sometimes we're told we're too expensive.
We don't think we are. Or to put it another way, if you want a printer who can do more with your marketing budget than you ever thought possible, then call us. We'll talk to you about becoming your trusted print provider and integrated marketing advisor.
Here's some of the value we offer customers every day:
Our G7 master printer certificate and high-definition printing equipment mean we never sacrifice quality even when matching or beating other shops' prices.
Time is money, and our pre-press and delivery expertise means we save our customers time by not having to drive to press checks, wait for drop-offs, etc.
Our consultative approach allows us to match customer needs to optimal print and marketing solutions. Importantly, we can match a marketing budget with the right solutions to get the best value outcome.
We offer our customers software solutions that integrate with their internal business and creative processes. For instance, magazines producers build content and manage versions on streamlining software that we provide free of charge.
Other software systems leverage your creative for a multi-dimensional approach. For instance, we can provide very cost effective methods to direct market messages in a highly targeted, time appropriate fashion.
Quartier believes quality deserves no compromise. You can be assured the job you send us will be delivered looking consistent, color-matched, and ready to be put to work. In fact, quality is so important to us, we applied for G7 Master Printer status from IDEAlliance - we’re the only printing company in Central New York whose staff, equipment, and procedures have earned this qualification.
What does using a G7 Master Printer mean for my job?
G7 means the most accurate color matching possible: our equipment has been carefully calibrated to obtain G7 grayscale definition across printing machines, ensuring the colors you send us are not “lost in the translation!”
A G7 printer has invested in high-quality equipment, trained staff, and in-house QA standards and procedures.
We know how frustrating it is to find the colors of your print file or brand mis-matched on materials: G7 ensures color appearance is balanced and repeated across all work.
G7 protocols require significantly less press sheets to lock in quality when beginning an offset or digital press run.

You might need a degree in mathematics to understand the theory behind stochastic (or frequency modulated) screening, but the results are plain to see. By varying the frequency of color dots rather than their size, Quartier’s stochastic equipment produces the highest print definition available.
What does stochastic screening mean for my job? Here is how you can tell the difference:
The highest clarity and most detail available: stochastic screening can print in excess of 400 dots per inch (DPI) - traditional definition is 175 to 200 DPI. This near-photographic accuracy means it's an excellent choice for calendars, art books, maps, and catalogs.
Because it does not rely on “screen angles,” stochastic screening produces highly accurate color registration. The “moiré” (interference pattern) effect associated with conventional screening is eliminated.
Combining extremely tiny dots used in stochastic screening with vegetable-based ink means significantly less resources are used to produce higher quality work.
Your customers are becoming more environmentally conscious, demanding products that preserve and protect the world’s resources. Use Quartier and your next print job will be 100% environmentally sustainable—with no compromise on quality—and we invite you to put our coveted chain of custody marks on your products.
