After having worked as a pressman, production supervisor and job estimator, Rick stepped out of the pressroom and into the role of print sales, eventually coming to the realization that his real strength lay in problem solving for his clients.

This led him to found RPJ Associates in 1991 with the understanding that he and his colleagues would dedicate themselves to providing the highest level of service and quality to clients. Now in its 20th year, RPJ is honored to count many of Greater Boston’s most outstanding companies and institutions among its customers.

Rick’s unique ability to problem-solve by matching your total needs for printing and promotional items with outstanding resources ensures your entire satisfaction, no matter how complex or demanding the job. Working with the RPJ team of dedicated professionals he is able to save you time and money by optimizing the mix of printers, finishers and promotional item suppliers required to complete your project.

RPJ’s extensive inventory of printing papers and proprietary preflighting system (to ensure designers’ files run smoothly in the critical “make-ready” process prior to production), are just two of the ways Rick has built speed and quality into the work RPJ does on your behalf.

Rick’s energy and exceptional “can do” philosophy are highlighted by his community service in the town of Natick where he and his lovely family make their home. Always active in civic affairs, Rick has long served as a member (and chair) of Natick’s Finance Committee, an advisory body tasked with carefully vetting the town’s $100 million+ annual budget on behalf of the board of selectmen and town meeting.

In this demanding role Rick has shown his formidable business and planning skills when placed in the service of his community can serve the greater good in numerous ways. His dedicated work ethic and vast experience ensure the outcome of his efforts is always of the highest quality, in whatever role he plays.
