It does not matter if you are running a one-man show or you employ hundreds. We can help.

Small town service and convenience with big city quality

Small business headaches mean lots to do and not enough time. We are your partner. We’ll design, print and process your mailings. We’ll get your marketing kitted. We’ll mail, store and ship your packages.

We are here to help. We help keep you on schedule.

No time? Lots to do?

WE DON’T EXPECT YOU TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN OFFSET AND DIGITAL. THAT IS WHY YOU COME TO THE EXPERTS. WE WILL WALK YOU THROUGH THE PROS AND CONS OF THE PRINTING PROCESS. THIS WILL GIVE YOU THE ABILITY TO UNDERSTAND AND MAKE AN EDUCATED DECISION.

We can give you the quality and turnarounds that will fit your situation. Knowledge is power.

The process – Offset vs digital

Buying local means you talk to a real person who cares about your project as much as you do. A person with years of experience. A person who can answer questions and help you get exactly what you want.

What else? Feel the paper. You own the design and logo. Delivery to your door. A person who cares if you have a problem and will fix it.

Benefits of buying local

Sometimes you just don’t have space. Ask about our storage area. We have 10,000 square feet of storage for your printed pieces or kitting materials.

It helps when you buy in bulk, but you might not have space. We do. You can choose from climate-controlled to cold storage. Long term and short-term space available. Then when you need it, we’ll deliver.

Your storage solution

WE ARE THE GO-TO COMPANY FOR PRINT AND MARKETING SOLUTIONS. THINK OF FIRST IMPRESSION PRINT & DESIGN AS AN EXTENSION OF YOUR TEAM. WE’LL HELP YOU GET YOUR BRAND NOTICED AND GET YOU BUSINESS.

Our business is to make your business better.

What they say about us

We had a big presentation coming up with lots of handouts. On very short notice, the crew at First Impression Printing photocopied both the color and black & white, then spiral bound it with covers they designed. I’m not sure it got us the job, but it sure didn’t hurt!

Presentation Packet

I was hosting a backyard wedding shower and wanted something special. The designers not only created gorgeous invites, response postcards and envelopes… they also suggested coordinated thank you cards. The set was unique and special just like my daughter-in-law.

Party Invites

Every year my family compiles a personalized, photo calendar for the grandparent’s Christmas gift. First Impression Printing juggles the odd sized, various quality images from each family member to create a gorgeous calendar. In fact each year it gets better and better.
