Social solidarity profile description
  • A small, worker-owned print shop named OccuCopy was founded in the fall of 2011, one of several worker cooperatives born out of the blossoming Occupy Wall Street movement. They set up shop in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn and became a crucial resource for both the radical and surrounding communities of New York City.

    But there’s another element to the story, an element that begins in the Pacific Northwest in the fall of 2010. Radix Media was founded in Portland, Oregon as a one-person shop with a single offset press. They printed tens of thousands of pages for the creative and social justice communities. They also acted as a small publisher, putting out zines, posters, greeting cards and other ephemera that were designed and printed in-house. After a trek across the country in the summer of 2012, Radix settled in the Prospect Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York.

    The two shops soon realized that they had much in common and decided that one unified print shop was better than two. After working together for almost a year to combine processes and train on new equipment, OccuCopy and Radix Media merged in the summer of 2013 to form the new Radix Media that exists today.

    As New York City’s only worker-owned, union print shop, we live our values every single day.

    Every worker at Radix Media is a co-owner and takes part in one or more aspects of the management of our business. We believe workers should have control over their workplace conditions and are proud to operate a democratic business with no hierarchy and no bosses.

    Radix Media is unionized with the Graphic Communications Conference / International Brotherhood of Teamsters. Your print job will have a union label affixed to it somewhere, noting that it was produced by unionized labor.

    We take our commitment to the environment very seriously. We use vegetable-based inks and solvents, alcohol-free dampening systems on our offset presses, and our house paper is 100% post-consumer recycled. We do our best to re-use everything from the box our paper came in to the bag our bagel came in.
