Why Radix?

Our name, derived from the Latin root of “radical,” reflects our mission: to get to the root of what matters. Print isn’t just ink and paper—it’s a conduit for ideas, a bridge between communities, and a catalyst for transformation. When you choose Radix, you choose quality, ethics, and impact.

More Than Just Commercial Printing

Since 2010, Radix has been dedicated to the proliferation of beautiful printed matter. We began with custom made stationery and short runs of political pamphlets, and expanded into literary publishing in 2018. We edit, typeset, design, and produce all of our titles in-house. This gives us total flexibility over how our books look and feel. It also allows us to utilize and combine printing processes—including offset lithography, letterpress, and state-of-the-art digital technology—to make something truly special.


We’re worker-owned, because we believe that workers should have control over their workplace conditions and have a voice in the decisions that shape their lives. We are proud to operate a democratic business with no hierarchy and no bosses, which is almost unheard of in the publishing industry.


We’re union strong, because we know that without unions, we’d all be working 14-hour days and so would our children. (Note that our children appreciate unions, too.) We’re unionized with Local 1 of the Amalgamated Lithographers Union/International Brotherhood of Teamsters.


We’re eco-friendly, because we know that we only have one planet and that we should take care of it. We use 100% post-consumer recycled paper whenever possible, low-VOC inks in our presses, and dampening systems that are free of alcohol. This ensures that we are producing our books as responsibly as we can.


We look forward to working with you on your next project and if you’re a retailer looking to carry our products, please see our Wholesale Orders page for more information.
