William T. Cooke, John C. Ursprung, Jr. and Daniel A. Solari established Cooke Publishing Company in 1952. These founding members had served as publishing consultants and executives of Philadelphia-based Campus Publishing Company, which was the largest yearbook publisher in the eastern United States during the 1940s. They founded the firm with the guiding principle of providing Integrity and Service, which has been the hallmark of Cooke Publishing Company for more than sixty years. Our offices started on South 21st Street in Philadelphia and subsequently moved nearby to South 23rd Street, and then to Devon on the Philadelphia Main Line, where we remained for thirty-five years. In 2006 we relocated the offices to Warminster, Pennsylvania.
Integrity and Service
Considering it more than a motto, the phrase Integrity and Service was adopted as a policy that ensured that all of customers are treated with honesty, care, consideration, and the best personal service available. In matters of service, experience counts. For all of our years our representatives have been former publication editors, advisers, or professionals trained and experienced in graphic arts work. Cooke has the unique distinction of having FOUR Columbia University Gold Key Awards presented to our professional staff. Our reputation for having an impact in the yearbook publishing industry is visible both in and out of the classroom. You can find us teaching classes at Columbia during the CSPA publications conferences, at the Pennsylvania School Press Association workshops, featured on television and magazine stories, and profiled in the Philadelphia Inquirer newspaper.
SERVICE means everything to our representatives, from personally reviewing and accepting customer material, to instructing our designers, and monitoring the progress of pages, proofs, printing, binding and delivery. INTEGRITY, however, does not take a back seat. We practice a time-honored policy of “awareness billing.” We are forthright in our quotations, uniform from school to school, and fair in explaining extra costs and options. We notify our customers of cost changes to original specifications as their projects proceed. We know and protect our customers’ budgets, and advise against desires that inflate billing unnecessarily. Our representatives work for the customer, as well as for the company, to achieve the best quality and price of every publication.
