About Us

Our Purpose

Morel is a partner in helping you cultivate community and belonging. We do this through apparel, communication on paper, or anything you put in people’s hands.

Our team is the heart and soul of Morel Ink. We’re a diverse and passionate bunch: We care deeply about our work, each other, and making a difference in the world. Each of us is driven by curiosity (how does this work?), problem solving (could it work better?), collaboration (how can we make that happen?), and a growth mindset (what else is possible?).

Union by Choice

Morel employees are proud members of District Council 2, an affiliate of the Printing Packaging & Production Workers Union of North America (PPPWU).

Our commitment to fair labor practices and high-quality craftsmanship means that we ensure our team has the security, wages, and benefits every person deserves. By choosing Morel Ink, you’re not only supporting a local business, but also advocating for workers’ rights and ethical standards.

Philanthropy is in our roots.

We believe business has not just an opportunity, but a responsibility to act as a powerful lever of change in the world — and we take that responsibility seriously. Since our founding, Morel has been dedicated to making a positive impact in our community: We’re always looking for ways to give back, amplify voices, and contribute to causes that are important to us.

Our Mission is Partnership.

What does partnership mean to you? We start every engagement with this question, because we believe partnership begins with understanding the needs of the other and how we can help.

Partnership is infused into every part of our work — we forge partnerships with our clients and each other to deliver incredible creative solutions. Our business model means we cultivate partnerships with a vast network of likeminded experts to offer a broader array of services and capabilities. At the end of the day, we are proud to give the world tools to forge partnerships through communication.

Our Values

Deliver the Impossible

Every day, our work challenges us to push the boundaries of our own capabilities. Whether it’s a tight project turnaround or finding a creative solution to a problem, we’re constantly surprising ourselves (and others) with our own resourcefulness. Knowing this, we default to “yes” whenever we can.

Grow Partnerships

We see “partner” as a verb more than a noun. That’s because we know the importance of not just developing partnerships, but consciously maintaining them. Each new prospect is a decades-long partnership in the making… and while mistakes are rare, it is defined by how we solve them.

Lift Each Other Up

We are nothing without our team, which is why we show up every day to lift up, respect, and support one another. We care deeply about building community within our own four walls — and that means sharing advice, solving problems together, or being there with a shoulder when times are hard.

Make Positive Change

We see our business as an opportunity to be a force for good in the world. We support diverse communities because it’s only natural that when our community thrives, our organization does too. We aim to make a positive impact in everything we touch, and we exclusively align ourselves with partners who share that priority.

We’re redefining what’s possible.
