Who We Are

Who We AreA company is only as good as its people, and ours are among the very best. CJPW’s team of prepress and print production specialists, finishing and fulfillment professionals are some of the finest – and most fastidious — in the business. We genuinely like what we do and work closely together to ensure that every job is produced to CJPW’s exacting standards, which makes our clients very happy.

Veteran graphics and printing guru Louis Lavalle founded CJPW in 1985. His career began in the mid-50’s as a printer’s devil. Later on, he apprenticed in a small letterpress shop in Portsmouth, setting foundry type by hand. Louis has held several print production positions in New York City later becoming partner in an advertising and design firm.

President Roseanne Patanjo-LaValle has worked closely alongside Louis virtually since he started CJPW. Previous experience included several high-level corporate executive positions requiring an exceptional attention to detail. Roseanne’s previous experience as an advertising vice president/account supervisor made her a perfect fit and has garnered CJPW a loyal clientele.

Every team has its mascot and CJPW is no exception. From the studio to the press shop, the bindery to the mailing house, Millie has pretty much seen it all.
