After 20 years printing and binding in Boston — especially for students — Gnomon Copy Boston no longer exists.

“We are sad to announce that Gnomon has closed its doors for good,” the company said in a statement. “The print industry and current economic climate have made it too tough for the purple signed store to thrive.”

Printing groups have some together to form Bluisma, which hopes to combine the city’s struggling print needs with digital services like Web design, consulting, logos, graphics, and even event planning.

    Please, to be clear, it is only Gnomon Boston that has closed, located on Huntington Ave!

    Thank You

    Strange. Print and copy seems to be thriving. A company has even moved into that same huntington area and has
    since grown to multiple locations throughout the boston area. Print even makes up about 40% of big companies like Staples profits. The only reason this guy failed is because he failed to realize how important it is in maintaining and upgrading his equipment and software. When the most expensive piece of equipment you have can last 5 years and be paid off in a matter of 3 to 4 months, there is really no excuse for this. He also failed at keeping up with trends and pricing. Blaming the print industry and economic climate for your lack of effort is pretty laughable. And it’s a blessing you have left the biz.
