Indianapolis – The Indianapolis Colts and Diversity Press today announced a new partnership that will make the printing company the most recent “Proud Partner of the Indianapolis Colts.”
Diversity Press, an Indianapolis-based, Black-owned business, is a full-service printing company which offers the latest in printing solutions; comprehensive finishing solutions; full-service mailing support; warehousing, kitting, and shipping; branded promotional products and apparel; and design support.
Through this new multi-year partnership, Diversity Press will handle the bulk of the Colts’ printing solutions needs. Additionally, they will join the club’s Business Alliance program, receive advertising at Lucas Oil Stadium and have a presence across other Colts platforms.
“Diversity Press specializes in helping companies and brands communicate effectively with their customers and constituents and offers the Colts everything we need in a printing partner,” said Roger VanDerSnick, Colts chief sales & marketing officer. “We’re especially pleased to partner with a local Black-owned business and hope this will lead to even more recognition, and most importantly, more new business opportunities for underrepresented companies in our community.”
Over the past several years, the Colts have made diversity, equity and inclusion a major priority in all its business, operations and community work. One goal of the effort is diversifying team vendors and partners to ensure that a broader group of companies, including minority-, women- and veteran-owned businesses, have access to commercial opportunities with the Colts.
“We are very humbled and honored to become partners with our hometown Indianapolis Colts,” said Darrell Johnson, president of Diversity Press. “For us, this relationship is much bigger than business. It’s also about inspiring children of color across our communities to strive for excellence and success in business, education or life, regardless of their personal circumstances or other obstacles that may present themselves.”
