“As a Communications Director I have worked with many printing companies over the years. Cottrell Printing is my go to printing company! They have amazing customer service and offer high quality printing. We need a wide variety of printing and they are able to help at all levels big and small. Working with this team is absolutely the best! ”

“The team at Cottrell Printing goes beyond “professional” – they are my “go-to” print, large format, fulfillment and mail providers.  They go so far above the parameters of a project to meet deadlines, deliver a top-notch product and provide customer service that is second to none.  As a small design firm, I rely heavily upon my vendors to help at every turn, and Cottrell never disappoints, regardless of the sometimes crazy demands this business puts on us all.  From pre-press to out the door, and at every step in between, they make me look good. I couldn’t be more confident to recommend Cottrell Printing.”

Our History

The five children of John and Fan Cottrell continue to influence the core values and principles that built this company to what it is today.  Combine that with additional family members who have joined our company and an amazing team of employees, and we have truly captivated a much sought-after place to work.

As part of our continued efforts to provide the best possible experience for our clients, we have incorporated other facets to our business model besides just ink on paper.  Some of these include project coordination for those complex jobs, fulfillment and packaging to make sure the first impression is always top-shelf, and an in-house distribution and mailing division to help facilitate any shipping requirements.  Bottom line, you can be confident that when you team up with Cottrell Printing, you will be treated like family.


Dedicated to

Our Community

Cottrell Printing is located in Centennial, Colorado – about 10 miles south of downtown Denver.  We are blessed to live and work in a very active and outdoorsy community with ample opportunities to enjoy the fresh Colorado air.

Because of our core values and principles, and because we are fortunate to be located in such a beautiful part of the country, we take every measure to not only reduce our footprint, but have a positive effect on the environment.  Here is a list of some of the efforts we are proud of:

Our Production Efforts Include

  • Purchasing enough energy through Wind Power from Xcel Energy to run all of our production equipment

  • Use of Computer-to-Plate Technology and a Digital Proofing system

  • Use of process-less plate technology, which eliminates almost all waste-water contamination

  • Recycling of all aluminum press plates – enough to be equivalent to 91 barrels of oil in energy annually

  • FREE mailing list clean-up to reduce wasted printing

  • We use a sophisticated evaporative cooling system in the entire production area, which greatly reduces energy use compared to the traditional HVAC systems

  • Our lighting throughout the building uses energy efficient 277V

Our Committment to
Social Responsibility
  • Our team of employees enjoy a state-of-the-art workplace

  • Many of our employees live in the surrounding neighborhoods allowing for an easy commute to work

  • Located within a mile of a Light-Rail station, several of our employees opt to take mass transit to-and-from work everyday

  • Our employees volunteer hundreds of hours every year to local charity events in our community

  • We are proud sponsors of several nonprofit organizations which help children and promote the overall wellness of building a stronger community
