At Gilson, we believe that progress and sustainability go hand in hand. As a marketing solutions provider and commercial printer, we’ve evolved over the years to meet our clients’ challenges while staying true to our commitment to the environment.

Gilson partnered with PrintReleaf in June 2023 as part of an ongoing need for sustainability options for our customers. All applicable print jobs (paper/corrugate based) can now be estimated via PrintReleaf, allowing customers to choose to offset their paper usage through reforestation.

The Salesperson of the Year award is determined by four weighted criteria, including overall sales volume, biggest sales increase, most new sales, and greatest value-added sales. Jake earned the top-spot this year thanks to his hard work and commitment to growing his book of business that includes Crocs, HeyDude, Tommy’s Express, and Wolverine Worldwide.

We believe in keeping you informed about developments that could impact your experience with Gilson, and we want to make sure you’re aware of a potential situation involving UPS.

Best of Wide Format

Gilson first brought you a behind-the-scenes look at the impressive renovation of the former Heritage Towers (now The Milton) in Battle Creek, MI back in June of 2020. That project is now gaining national recognition, and was unveiled as one of 12 winners of the 3rd Annual Best of Wide Format Awards competition by Big Picture magazine.
