WHY JIVE

Winner of 14 Addys and voted Best Local Printing Company every year!

Background

As the 90s were fading from view, sometime just after the sunset of the L.A. Gear shoe and Baja hoodie trend, a new design firm was born in downtown Nashville. Accent Media set up shop in historic Cummins Station, and not long after, this newcomer to the soon-to-be-trendy district offered basic color copy services to neighboring businesses. Soon, demand was so high that a spinoff into print services was created, and so began the age of Jive! A Digital Print Factory.

Now, ten years later, and in it’s latest phase unofficially called “Jive! 2.0,” the crew at Jive! is heralding a new era in full-service printing, and we could not be happier to be looking forward to the next ten years under our refreshed banner:
Jive! A Printworks Studio.

  • Designers Front to Back

    Everyone who comes into contact with your project at Jive! has a background in design. This puts us ahead of the rest of the printing rat-race, as our quality-control is finely-tuned at every stage. From the person answering the phone to the driver pulling up to deliver your order in the Legendary “JiveMobile” Mini Cooper, our team “has your back” like a good partner should.

  • Flexible and Versatile

    There is no job too small or too big. Our onsite production capabilities enable us to meet the needs of short-run printing, walk-in copy jobs, and medium-sized digital print. With an endless array of offsite production options, we’re able to step up our production capacity to jobs in the hundreds of thousands of pieces with offset printing. We can even go beyond paper to produce large-format, outdoor, textile, and a variety of specialty printing options.

  • Ideal Location

    Jive! is situated in Nashville’s SoBro District, the heart of the hottest developments in retail, office, cuisine and entertainment. The growing economic impact of this district is new, but our home – Historic Cummins Station – is an eclectic icon, standing on the border of SoBro and The Gulch for over 100 years. From our central and convenient spot, we can run quick deliveries of print all over town – and we enjoy some of the most inspiring creative buzz in the city.

  • Not Your Typical Scene

    What’s your mental image of a print company? Dusty? Boring? Old-fashioned? What about fresh, hip, energetic, confident, and always pushing for the cutting-edge of technology? That’s the vibe that sets Jive! apart, and you’ll notice the difference as soon as you walk through the door. Read more about what makes us tick in this recent interview!

Our Neighbors

As one of the oldest tenants of one of Nashville oldest and most historic buildings, we’ve had the privilege of watching Cummins Station grow, and a front-row seat for the renaissance occurring in the SoBro district outside our front door. From Music City Center to the Gulch, the exciting changes Nashville is experiencing have us more energized than ever before! We’d love to tell you about some of our awesome neighbors and nearby highlights.

Sponsorship & Community

One thing you’ll notice is that you see Jive! everywhere. That’s because we put our name on more local events and charitable efforts than any other local printer. We believe that print is an essential element to the success of any venture, even those that are community oriented or not-for-profit. We’re also  big fans of trade and barter relationships and partnerships with like-minded enterprises who see the value in mutual brand representation.

“Absolutely the best! They take my unreasonable, untimely requests and turn around a great product in time. That is simply fantastic in an age where most other people try to look for the quickest path to saying no. Long live Jive!”
