Great folks: community-minded, responsible people who communicate accurately and clearly, who pay attention to the details of a job, no matter how small. Minuteman consistently does high-quality work.

- Ann H. Albany, CA

I got some brochures for my company printed last year with Minuteman Press and they did an excellent job!  I was highly impressed with Fred and his team.  They were professional, very quick to respond and helped me choose exactly what I wanted for my brochures.  The turn-around time was very quick and they followed up with me to make sure I was fully satisfied.  I would certainly use them again!

- Nesreen M. New York, NY

Exceptional service and attention to detail. MP went above and beyond my expectations. Not often I work with a business that actually makes me smile! Highly recommended!

- Danny C. Oakland, CA

The team is amazing! I often work with Janice and she is fantastic! Clear communication, fast turn around time, helpful suggestions, and a pleasure to work with everyone on the team. We've been using MinuteMan for our print projects for a number of years and always have a great experience.

- Jaimie B. Berkeley, CA

I am happy to repeat what I said earlier.  Pure professionalism and at the same time, a most welcoming environment.  Everyone admired the work done for my poetry book and I love it.

Minuteman Press staff are very professional and responsive.  I work for a large nonprofit and we use them every year to mail out our appeal letters in spring, fall and winter.  Anto is wonderful to work with!

- Jacinda A. Berkeley, CA

Minuteman press does pro bono printing every year for the Bay Area Book Festival, just one example of many of this business's community services. The owner is deeply involved in various local organizations. The work is always excellent and timely, so if you're looking for a great printer, why not also choose to patronize a business that's so engaged in its community? Businesses like this help keep our community connected and thriving.

- Cherilyn P. Berkeley, CA

MP is fast, reliable, accurate and they deliver! Makes a small business easier to run with this kind of service!

- Deborah P. Pleasant Hill, CA

I am continually impressed with the business cards Minuteman printed for me. They did an awesome job seeking out the paper stock I requested and delivering a quality of ink that pops for everyone I show. Additionally, they didn't charge extra for a hard proof. I'm grateful for a local printer I can visit, engage with friendly staff, and share in success.

- Ben R. Berkeley, CA

I can only repeat the review I wrote in April which appeared on May 25 when my book was done.  Minuteman Press is a wonderful publishing company.  The professionalism and the care are unsurpassed.  The designer, Douglas Williamson is so very gifted.  Everyone who received the book does does comment on the beauty of the poetry book.  I highly recommend Minuteman Press to everyone.

- Monique A. Oakland, CA

This review was actually written on April 24 but apparently not posted.
It has been such a pleasure to work with Minuteman Press.  Beyond the professionalism, there is  personal attention.  You feel welcomed in a very peaceful environment.  The design of my poetry book is absolutely beautiful.  Douglas Williamson, the designer,  is so gifted and patient.  I highly recommend Minuteman Press.

- Monique A. Oakland, CA

We love Minuteman Press...They are easy to communicate with, they do spectacular work, at great prices and the turn around is quick! The best part is you can have your work delivered right to your business, so they really make everything super convenient!!

- Kirsten M. Berkeley, CA

My modest job was done beautifully, as expected.  This review is to thank Prizal for being so nice and considerate.  I am not young and not experienced with computer layout.  My original submission was laughable, but Prizal was kind enough not to laugh.  I managed to get up to speed and complete the task thanks to Prizal's patience.

- Linda F. Berkeley, CA

I have used Minuteman Press in Berkeley for more than a decade for both high-end printing for four-color slick event programs and for quick printing flyers at the last minute. They have never let me down! Their prices are good and their customer service is EXCELLENT. We are almost always on tight deadlines and they consistently beat the expected delivery time. Regardless of the kind of printing I am getting done they produce the highest quality work! It would be practically impossible to convince me to get any printing job that I needed done in the Bay Area done anywhere else!

- Rosa Lee H. Bear Creek, Asheville, NC

Fred and Minute Man Press are indispensable team members for your growing business. If you are ready to put yourself out in the world and take on a bigger game recruiting their services will help you to get known, seen and read!

- Anna M. Oakland, CA

I had an absolutely amazing experience working with Minuteman Press! I produced my first ever catalog and had absolutely no idea what I was doing. I sent them a file entirely made in Word. However, the team was able to organize the file and helped me to produce an absolutely gorgeous catalog in brilliant color. I have used lots of other services, such as PS Print, and I definitely have to say that my experience with Minuteman was superior! You cannot get assistance, high quality printing, quick turnaround, and low prices like this with any other printing service in the Bay Area. I will definitely be back and I have sent several friends over for jobs--they have been pleased every time! You guys rock!!!

- Demetri S. Emeryville, CA

Courteous, knowledgeable, on time. They listen well and make sure they are doing what you want.

- Jordan R. Berkeley, CA

Minuteman Press not only does great printing work, they are a wonderful community partner. We worked with Minuteman Press on some promotional materials for a fundraiser we had and they were superb. High quality, professional work at very reasonable prices. Fred Fassett and his team were a joy to work with. I'm very appreciative.

- Maureen D. El Cerrito, CA

Thank you for the excellent services on my business card printing. I appreciated the personal attention, extensive paper options, and the hard copy proof to be sure that everything was right before the job went to print. Very reasonable prices!

Minute Man Press always does a great job for our company. They are fast, thorough, and dependable. I definitely recommend them.

- Sarah R. Berkeley, CA

Excellent!  Minuteman Press did a great job on my guitar instruction book, "BLUES TO JAZZ".  They even succeeded in adding a red border to the existing yellow one on the book's cover! (A previous printer had told me this was impossible).  Their turnaround time was quick and their prices reasonable. I'm going to use their services again soon for my second book.

- Jack E. Orinda, CA

These people do excellent work.  The printed book copies we received looked even better than expected.  I'd definitely use them again.

- Sherrin L. Emeryville, CA

Minuteman Press provides good quality work and customer service. We always put in last minute orders and they are great at expediting the work.

- Bahadour Z. Lafayette, CA

In December 2015 I had a first printing of a book of photos with text, and a second printing in January 2016. The original prints of the pictures are especially fine and good reproduction was a priority. Despite some discrepancies between my digitized files and the system at Minuteman, the technician there worked closely with me to produce the quality I required, in a timely manner. Owner Fred Fassett proved also extremely accommodating and helped me make connections for marketing. Minuteman rates are very reasonable, and for me it was a great bonus to access the same people in person on each contact, close to my home near Berkeley. A friend and local publisher/editor uses Minuteman for all her printing needs and recommended it to me. I in turn recommend it for precise and punctual production.

- Diane D. Albany, CA

I've been using Minuteman Press for over 4 years now. Great customer service, speedy product delivery, and good quality products. Our company is very satisfied and they have very competitive prices especially for small businesses with small marketing budgets.

- Kate S. Oakland, CA

I had Minuteman make many envelops and letters with my logo, name, tel. and address on fine stationary. It was challenging work that required extraordinary care and expertise, particularly in refining my logo. They were great to work with and very well priced. I highly recommend them and will work with them again soon.

- William S. El Sobrante, CA

Outstanding! Our book is fantastic. Thanks to all at Minuteman Press. East Bay Media Center – Berkeley "The Other America - A Black-Red View" By Allen Willis aka John Alan

- Dennis B. Berkeley, CA

I have been completely satisfied with the books Minuteman Press prints for me - the paper, the binding, graphics - everything is superb and handled in a professional manner. So happy to have found them.

- Penny W. Patterson, CA

They did a great job for us, we're very happy with the quality and the service they provided. We'll definitely be back!

- Heimo S. Berkeley, CA

Fred and his whole crew did a great job on my recent order, which was translating and printing my business card into Japanese.  Minuteman Press has been printing my letterhead, envelopes and business cards for at least 25 years I think, and their service keeps getting better each time.  I will certainly have replacement letterhead, envelopes and business cards printed by them next time I need them.

- Joshua K. Berkeley, CA

I've had Minuteman print three runs of my novel, Silent Suspect. Each time the service was great, the deadlines met, and the professionalism of Fred Fassett and his staff (special kudos to Doug Williamson) outstanding. Recommend them highly. Tony Hawthorne

- Tony H. Berkeley, CA

Good prices, good quality, caring service, and always quick turnaround. Love 'em.

- Nancy I. Oakland, CA

We've been using Minuteman Press for printing needs at my work for a long time! They always deliver (literally hand deliver the proofs and final products) great service and great quality products at a very reasonable price. We're into printing on recycled paper with soy based inks and always are able to work with our needs! They are a pleasure to do business with and we will always go straight to them for our printing needs.

- Amanda D. San Francisco Bay Area, CA

I have worked with Minuteman Press, and it's excellent staff since 2009.  Often, it's down to the wire, and they always come through for me, they've never let me down.  Fred Fassett's team is a pleasure to work with, always professional, courteous and accommodating.  Special size booklet?  No problem. They are local, which is very convenient when pressed for time.   Without hesitation, whenever I'm asked for a referral for printing, I always recommend Minuteman!

- Therese G. Berkeley, CA

I have worked with and known Minuteman Press owner Fred Fassett for maybe 40 years and I must compliment Fred for his continuous conscientious effort to provide the best service possible at very reasonable cost. Another attractive quality of Minuteman Press is that they are active community members and I believe Fred to be a member of almost all Berkeley civic organizations. Nice to have access to someone so effortlessly. A+

- Christopher W. Berkeley, CA

- Marion O. Oakland, CA

I have used MinuteMan Press for my graphic design clients, as well as my own printing needs, for 10 years or longer. They are reliable, reasonable and always take a moment to review my files to make sure everything will print like I expect. I couldn't recommend them more highly.

- Malaga S. San Francisco, CA

I took a chance on Minuteman Press based in part on Yelp reviews, and am *really* glad I did. I had a book scheduled to come out in two weeks, and another (out-of-state) printer I'd been counting on couldn't produce a clean proof -- or a reliable prediction when I'd get to see their next attempt. I was starting to sweat. When I walked into Minuteman Press, reviving a query I'd begun (then dropped) a couple months before, Fred Fassett was courteous, professional, knowledgeable, answered all my questions, and gave me a reasonable (not perfect but it would work) turnaround-time estimate. His prices were very close to the out-of-state printer's, and I felt I could trust him. Once his staff went over the files I provided and we got through the paperwork, Fred shaved his turnaround-time back to a date that was *better* than perfect ... and what's more, Minuteman got the job done just when he said they would. The books look great, and now I know a printer I can trust in Berkeley.

- Steve M. Berkeley, CA

I can't recommend Fred Fassett and Minuteman Press more highly for their quality of work, speed, and attention to detail in pre-press. They've done many very image- and text-intensive books for me, and the color and process has been fabulous in every way.

- Charylu R. Sparks, NV

Awesome customer service. Timely responses. Excellent product. Our preschool used minuteman press every year!!

- Jennifer S. Berkeley, CA

I used Minuteman Press for two books. Both experiences were good, and the staff was helpful with design, as well as solving some problems. They also took time to discuss with me what I wanted to achieve, and helped me think these projects through. Their prices were also fair.

- Barry S. Hayward, CA

Everything was perfect for our project from beginning to end. We received wonderful, personal, caring service from Fred Fassett and the most excellent, and caring, book design and photography from Susan Davis of Paintbox Productions. We did the research and presented the material - they created the book about which everyone raves. Thank you so very much.

Better than as it gets.  Reasonable rates, professional interchange, courteous service.  I trust Minuteman to take care of my printing needs and to question and anticipate issues that I can't think of on my own.

- Maxim S. Berkeley, CA

Our company has been using Minute Man Press in Berkeley for years.  When we moved from Berkeley to Los Angeles, we kept them as our printer because their prices are very competitive and their service is the best.  We often need a rapid turn around time, and they accommodate us every time with a smile.

- Barbara R. Redondo Beach, CA

Minuteman Press is now Our Little Books' printers. We are very happy with their work. Our books are not your 'normal' size and they do a great job with the printing.

I was very pleased with my experience with Minuteman Press. Their staff was very courteous and professional. Even though I had a small order (125 business cards) they treated me as if I were as important as one of their bigger clients. I even got my cards a day earlier than they said they would be.
