About Gandy Printers

Gandy Printers is a premier, family owned and operated print and marketing provider. Founded by Bernie Gandy Jr. in 1970, Gandy Printers has been bringing expertise, passion and sincerity to the Tallahassee community for over 40 years.

Yesterday’s Values, Today’s Technology

There are more printing options today than ever before. Gandy Printers gives you the attention and reliability of a mom-and-pop shop with the skill and proficiency of a giant printing company. Our team is dedicated to continuing the ideals of our founder, Bernie Gandy Jr.

Environmental Impact

Like many other businesses, Gandy Printers is making an effort to protect our environment. We strive to find new production methods and materials to reduce our carbon footprint. You can feel good about doing business with us knowing how hard we work to reduce our waste. Waste reduction leads to lower production costs, saving you money.

Below are a few of the ways we reduce our waste:

  • We use soy-based inks to avoid the toxic chemicals of traditional oil-based inks.
  • We use low VOC plate and press chemistry to reduce the amount of volatile chemicals that enter our atmosphere.
  • We use a certified vendor to clean shop rags to prevent the addition of chemicals into our water system.
  • We recycle all waste paper, cardboard, toner cartridges and aluminum plates.
  • We offer a wide selection of recycled and certified paper stocks.

Community Involvement

Gandy Printers has been active in the North Florida and South Georgia communities since its founding in 1970. As a 3rd generation Tallahassee family and business, this community is important to our success. We believe it is important to give back through involvement in local charities and non-profit organizations.

Below is a partial list of the organizations we have recently been involved with:

  • Alzheimer’s Project
  • America’s Second Harvest of the Big Bend
  • American Red Cross
  • Children’s Miracle Network
  • Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
  • Down Syndrome Association of Tallahassee
  • Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce.
  • Tallahassee Community Chorus
  • Tallahassee Film Society
  • United Way

THE FAMILY

Gandy Printers has been family owned and operated since its founding in 1970. There are currently four members of the Gandy family working at Gandy Printers.

Bernie began working at Gandy Printers after school in 1990. He worked in various production departments and learned the business from the ground up throughout college while he obtained a degree in business management from Florida State University’s College of Business. After college, Bernie moved into sales and eventually estimating. Bernie became the general manager in 2001, and he took over the business and assumed the role of president in 2007.

Bernie Gandy III

Jyll Gandy began working in printing in 1970, and started her career at Gandy Printers in 1976 as the company’s first typesetter. As was customary in a small business, she also helped out in customer service, camera work, making rubber stamps, bindery and in any other area where help was needed. In 1982 she began doing the bookkeeping and has held that position ever since. With over 36 years at Gandy Printers, she is the company’s longest standing employee.

Jyll Gandy

Joy Gandy has worked at Gandy Printers since 1993, when she was still in highschool. She worked after school in various bindery and pre-press positions, so she knows the in’s and out’s of the production process. Joy began working as a customer service representative and found that her true passion was helping customers. Joy currently works in outside sales and consulting, where her love of people and intimate knowledge of the printing process creates a true asset for all of her clients.
