our history

GPB started out as a shipping store offering FedEx, UPS, & USPS services and mailbox rentals.  Due to the lack of local, reasonably priced print products, Printing Services were soon added.  We saw a need and decided to fill it.  GPB now offers a wide array of Small & Wide Format print products, as well as Promotional Products and Design Services in addition to carrier and freight shipping.  We love the challenge of helping customers find the correct products and services for their businesses and events.  GPB specializes in Design & Printing for Events, Advertising, Branding- and of course, Shipping!

Since it was founded on April 4, 2004, Go Postal in Boone has provided the High Country with top quality products and services along with the best customer service at competitive prices.  We are proud to say that as the High Country's #1 location for business and personal printing, shipping, and graphic design-- We do it all!

...Green Printing

GPB is dedicated to being as environmentally conscious as a design, printing, and shipping company can be.  We actively strive to reduce our footprint both personally, locally, and globally.  Discover how we are working to be a more

Green Printing Business.

GPB installed the first wave of LED lighting in late 2020 and the second in 2021. The LED lights last longer so we use less bulbs and are more energy efficient.

Lighting

GPB is committed to keeping waste to a minimum.  Check Twice, Cut Once.  Our employees make several checks in our design and print process to ensure that when we go to print, it is correct.  This practice keeps waste low in our production department.  The best way to conserve is to cut unnecessary waste.

Waste

In earlier 2021, GPB updated our job jackets to reusable clear envelopes from manila folders.  This has cut our use of paper folders by about 3,500 each year.  We have initiated using more digital files and less paper for all our our orders.  This cuts at least 5 cases of paper consumption each year!

Job Jackets

GPB is always looking into updated machinery that increases efficiency and cuts waste.  GPB added a Mimaki Wide Format printer that uses less ink and less blank material in between jobs.  This minimizes the amount of trimmed waste we have on every wide format job and puts less ink into the environment for the same product production.

Machinery

For years GPB has been accepting clean packing material and providing it to our customers at no charge.  While this may cut down on our sales of packing material, it also keeps lots in re-use, cutting down on what goes into the landfill.  While this is currently on hold, we hope to soon start this program again!

Packaging

GPB recycles what we can, such as paper, cans, plastic, glass, ink cartridges, light bulbs, and cardboard.  We also use the ends of paper rolls for packing in our shipping department to further reduce waste.
