Printing with Purpose. Mailing with a Mission.

SHALOM Denver has been proudly serving Denver-area businesses with quality printing and mailing services for decades. Customers represent a full spectrum of industries, including banking and financial services, energy, tech startups, manufacturing, real estate, nonprofit, retail, and food service. Business customers appreciate the excellent customer service, high-quality work, attention to detail, and quick turnaround.

But what makes SHALOM Denver stand out from the competition is in its mission. SHALOM employs individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and gives them the opportunity to work and earn an income. We call it printing with purpose and mailing with a mission. It’s giving people the opportunity to overcome obstacles to reach their full potential. Not many printers or direct mail companies can lay claim to that. By using SHALOM Denver’s services, area businesses share in the mission to help others and give back to our community.

SHALOM Denver has recently changed its business model to give even better opportunities to its workers, who now earn minimum wage and are more integrated into the community. What used to be a sheltered workshop—separated from the greater community—is now a community-based social enterprise. Workers interact with customers, make deliveries, and engage with vendors and suppliers. At the same time, they are expected to meet production quotas and deadlines.

SHALOM Denver provides turnkey printing services for color brochures, flyers, postcards, and booklets—just about anything needed by a business to promote its products and services. Customers usually provide electronic files and SHALOM takes care of the rest.

When it comes to bulk mailing, SHALOM Denver also shines. Most work involves importing and certifying mailing lists, sending them through the national address change database, inkjet addressing, sorting, and delivery to the U.S. Post Office. All processes are automated using state-of-the-art equipment to fold, sort, label, stuff, and tab for mailing. SHALOM Denver can also use its workforce for hand inserting and piecework that its competitors don’t offer.
