More than 60 years ago, Colonial Press International was founded on the simple principle of providing the best quality and value to our customers, and becoming a reliable printing resource for their success.

The result today has been an expansive base of technology and experienced professionals with a keen insight in all aspects of printing and distribution.

Still independently owned and managed by the Gomez family, Jose and Jorge continue to embrace a customer- focused, entrepreneurial strategy providing growth and opportunities for our customers and employees.

Our Story

After success as a printing paper cutter, bindery supervisor, and ultimately plant manager, Jose Gomez along with two other partners were given an opportunity of a lifetime, to purchase Colonial Press International from the original owner.

Jose’s son, Jorge Gomez, joined Colonial Press as President. Jorge graduated from Florida International University in 1992 with a Bachelor of Accounting degree, followed by 5 years as a Senior Auditor for KPMG Peat Marwick.

Jorge, like his father before him, became President and CEO of Colonial Press International. Together they developed a long-term business plan for the continued growth of Colonial Press.

Colonial Press was nominated and certified as a National Corporate Plus Member of the NMSDC by Wachovia Bank. Colonial Press is proud to operate as the only Commercial printer with this certification. Learn More
