         Tour Of The Plant

Who We Are

The Old Trail Printing Company was founded by Mr. Fred Whiteman in 1928. The company took its name from the street that it was built on. It was the National Old Trail, or Route 40, as it was known at the time.


In 1964, Mr. Whiteman sold the printing company to a young man who worked as a press operator at a local printing operation. His name was Bernie Held. He was determined to grow Old Trail Printing into one of the finest printing companies in the greater Columbus area. Bernie laid the foundation for the key element that would separate us from the rest of the crowd for generations to come. His passion for excellence in printing extended well into the values and character of the people he employed.

In 1987, Bernie passed away at the age of 61, but his legacy lives on at Old Trail Printing. His wife Mary is still active in the company as CEO. Two of Bernie’s children, Mike and Dave Held, lead the company with the same ideals that Bernie embodied. Our people are still our most valued asset. The Held family’s passion for quality, people and excellence in printing services remain the same. See for yourself. We know what really makes a printer great and you’ll find it all at Old Trail Printing.


In this fast-paced, ever-changing world we live in, it’s good to know that some things haven’t changed and at Old Trail Printing, our commitment to quality never will.

Environmental Responsibility


Corporate social responsibility issues are becoming a core component of corporate brands. Dealing responsibly with your company’s footprint cannot only reduce risk, but can enhance your brand if you walk the walk and know how to talk about it. Carrying the FSC-certification logo on your print products tells the world that you support the highest social and environmental standards in the market where you use paper. Your purchase of FSC-certified paper and print products contribute to conservation, responsible management, and community level benefits for people near the forests that provide your paper.

The U.S. is the largest market for paper products in the world, producing 90 million tons of paper annually and, in-turn, consuming about 100 million tons. Despite improved technologies for refining post consumer pulp, virgin fiber is still a significant requirement, as only 35% of current consumption is met by using recycled fiber; in addition, approximately 25% of recovered fiber is exported out of US markets. Roughly 25% by volume of timber cut annually in the US is used for paper production.

While recycled fiber is a key element of the traditional model for responsible consumption, it is becoming increasingly clear that forest management in the production of the wood used in paper manufacturing, has more fundamental importance than even recycled fiber. The use of alternative fibers, chemical treatment and resulting effluence are other factors important to the responsible purchasing of paper and board. Old Trail can help you decide which paper is best for your needs. You can find more on FSC certified products by visiting www.fsc.org.



Old Trail is proud to partner with Braden Sutphin Inks in keeping the printing model as green as possible. Environmentally friendly inks are not new to Braden Stuphin’s product line. In fact, long before the popularization of soya inks, Braden Sutphin offered printers eco-friendly sheetfed products formulated with linseed and tung oils.

Now, in response to printers, print customers and end users becoming increasingly interested in environmentally friendly products and sustainability efforts, Braden Sutphin has developed the EcoSmart certification program.

Under the EcoSmart program guidelines developed by our technical director, an ink product will carry the EcoSmart seal if it meets the requirements below. We will continue to evaluate the EcoSmart program guidelines and make necessary adjustments as technology and the industry evolve.

Conventional oil base inks must meet each of the following requirements in order to qualify for EcoSmart certification:

- Contain no more than 5% Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) based on Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Test

   Method 24, or as calculated from accumulated data on the ingredients contained in the product

- Contain a minimum of 45% of renewable resource content as calculated from accumulated data on the ingredients

   contained in the product

- Contain no more than 5% by weight of petroleum distillates

- Meet Council of Northeast Governors Coalition (CONEG) regulation for packaging, with a combined heavy metal
   total of less than 100 ppm of mercury, lead, cadmium and hexavalent chromium

Learn more about Eco-Smart inks by visiting Braden Sutphin's website.



It’s important to prove the economic and environmental value of print on paper in these critical times. Keeping print viable for future generations requires knowing and sharing the facts, as well as acting with both purpose and principle.

Is it worth printing? Doing business requires maintaining a balance. Among economic, environmental and social needs. Printing on paper meets those criteria. It’s a way to drive business in a renewable way — to be more effective in your communications and to be more sustainable. It’s worth printing if you incorporate environmental stewardship in your business, encourage your suppliers and customers to do the same and use printed materials wisely. According to the latest research on advertising, printed communications are making a significant contribution to the economy and have a positive impact on business.


Statistics show the following:

- Campaigns combining direct mail and internet yield up to an additional 25% response rate.

- Nearly 80% of households either read or scan advertising mail sent to their household.

- Direct mail gives advertisers a whopping 13-to-1 return on their investment.

- Nearly 80% of internet users surveyed said they were directly influenced make a purchase because of a direct mail.

- Brand recall is substantially higher using print vs. on-screen. On-screen information is 20-30% more difficult to read.

- Small and medium businesses still rely on newspaper and magazine articles (44%) and direct mail, including

   letters, postcards and catalogs (44%) to get results.
