In working with us, you'll find that our company is not overly regimented. Everyone understands their role but is willing to help out wherever needed to see a job through. You'll never hear a member of our staff say, "that's not my job."
Though we believe whole-heartedly in this open approach, it's necessary to separate our company into a few departments. Whether it's sales, pre-press or production, it takes everyone we have to make our clients look their best.
Our behind-the-scenes support staff handles all our administrative tasks such as accounting, company communications, training, safety issues and coordination of staff functions. Snyder Printer is currently the ONLY printer in Upstate New York and one of two in all of New York State to hold the NYS Department of Labor Occupational Safety & Health SHARP Certification. This means that we meet or exceed all of the safety regulations for our industry! We believe that a safe work-site is a productive work-site.
- Bindery Services
Our Bindery Services Department handles everything from basic cutting, folding and laminating to more elaborate binding issues. We have the equipment and experienced personnel to run your job with precision. Our full range of bindery services allows every job we produce to go out the door ready for distribution.
- Color QC
QC ensures that all manufactured items are identical and within our quality tolerances. Using measured color data we can monitor color at each stage of production and check the "closeness" of color matches using repeatable, standardized numerical data.

We manage a corporate sales force that calls on small and medium sized companies as well as Fortune 500 businesses. Customers are assigned dedicated sales representatives and are supported by a team of production professionals. We believe in formulating long term customer relationships and we take pride in partnering with our customers.

We utilize proven technology and equipment to ensure that our printed products are of the highest quality. Our professional press operators are masters at maintaining ink consistency and coverage, maintaining accuracy, and meeting tight deadlines. For example, when it comes to quality we found that conventional screening just doesn’t cut it. This is why we use Staccato screening and have been using this technology since 2003. What is staccato screening? In the early 1990's, an innovative method of applying dots to paper began to make waves in the printing industry. Known as stochastic screening, this new technology promised to break through the limitations of halftone screening and deliver finer detail and more vibrant color. For extraordinarily fine image detail you cannot beat staccato screening. Here at Snyder Printer we print Staccato 20 (microns). This is the equivalent to 450 line screen. This cutting edge printing process is a sophisticated method of representing a continuous tone image by converting shading and colors into a random pattern. The process has the affect of "piling" ink on paper (similar to rotogravure) for improved print quality. Conventional screening utilizes round dots and screen angles. Staccato printing utilizes random dot placement and various dot sizes, thus allowing a closer look and feel of the digital or analog photograph. The result is smoother flesh tones, finer details, elimination of moirés, and a 15% wider color gamut. Our knowledge of printing from our skilled team along with new technology such as Staccato screening are just a few things that set us apart from the competition.
Our electronic Pre-Press Department employs a fully digital, PDF-based workflow built on the very latest in digital pre-press hardware and software (Macintosh and PC).
