Clovernook Center’s Braille Printing House has been in operation since 1914, and was the first braille producer to be primarily operated by individuals who were blind and visually impaired. Today we remain a fully integrated workforce – over 50% of our staff consists of individuals who are blind or visually impaired. Clovernook Center has grown to become one of the largest global producers of braille—over 30 million pages are shipped from our doors to individuals, libraries, and global consumers annually.
We produce a variety of braille materials for the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped, a division of the Library of Congress. Clovernook also produces textbook materials, tactile graphics, periodicals, calendars, menus, business cards, instruction manuals, medical documents, and more. The Braille Printing House also offers professional certification training, accessibility consulting and development for cultural institutions, and braille production guidance for non-profits in developing countries. Clovernook is a founding member of the Braille Authority of North America (BANA).
