Progress Printers is a small, family-owned and family-oriented company located in beautiful Traverse City, MI. The company, which today is celebrating over 30 years of printing success, grew from a newspaper that started publishing in 1859 when the primary business was lumber harvesting—and the number of saloons matched the number of churches.

Over the years, Progress Printers has expanded, moved and changed owners, but its commitment to quality, service and community remains steadfast. Jim Novak, owner since 1982, attributes the company’s success to genuinely caring about their customers and their customers’ projects. “Everyone here is detail-oriented. If something looks off, we pick up the phone. We’re not a drop-and-copy shop. We engage with our customers—and it keeps them coming back.”

Jim employs 9 sales, design and printing professionals. The company has grown into the second largest printing company in the region, and the business serves customers throughout the United States.

“We’re located in a relatively small town,” Novak says. “One of the things that often surprises people about Progress is the depth and breadth of our services. In this digital age, we’re able to quickly turn around projects and deliver them. Hawaii is really no different than right next door.”
