Helping to build strong and healthy communities benefits us all. We apply the same principles of innovation, collaboration and empowerment to our work in the community that we do in our business.
Worth Higgins & Associates
Just as we did when our company was founded in 1970, we continue to call ourselves “printers” – and so do our customers. Makes sense. Offset, digital, wide-format, and letterpress printing are today the core technologies of Worth Higgins & Associates. UV ink and coating, foil stamping, embossing and die cutting are tools of the printing process that we handle extraordinarily well in helping our clients achieve their creative goals and take their ideas beyond their imaginations.
Here’s what you need to know about us. We break traditions. We break molds. We break through. Our passion is to help you make the change you need to succeed. From strategy to execution, we create the kind of change that brings you closer to the people you serve: citizens, consumers, and entire communities.
