Franklin's Printing

Franklin’s Printing, nominated by the company’s bulk mail manager, is an independently owned and operated full service printing, business and marketing materials company. The company’s support of Guard and Reserve includes no penalties to the employee’s vacation or leave for military service. With only 13 employees, Franklin’s Printing provides additional support to the military by donating their time and talents, including printing brochures for local military groups, military personnel and their families at no cost. Franklin’s Printing has also received the ESGR Pro Patria Award and the Above and Beyond Award.
