On Dec. 13, 1991, Preferred Printing Company opened the doors for business with three people, two presses, a folder, a paper cutter and an old typesetting system. In our first month of existence, our fledgling business did 10 jobs for 10 customers. Now we have about 500 customers from 15 states in addition to Minnesota. Continuing business growth requires more room and expansion is in the planning stages. From the two presses, folder, paper cutter and old typesetting system, Preferred Printing has progressed to a computer-to-plate system for the nine presses and three folders with a complete computer design and typesetting system, along with a computerized mailing operation. Our company is primarily known for its capability to produce high quality, multi-colored, printed products.


Preferred Printing has the capability to screen print or embroider clothing for all your personal or professional needs. Caps, bags, t-shirt, outerwear - one to one thousand, we can do it all!


As a member of ASI (Advertising Specialties Institute) and PPAI (Promotional Products Association International), Preferred Printing acts as a representative for more than 2,000 manufacturers who provide supplies used in the preparation of personalized items. Promotional products are available in an impressively wide variety, in addition to the typical personalized promotional products of pens, mugs, can coolers, sticky notes and flash-drives.


The key to Preferred Printing’s success is the care our employees take in attention to detail, the quality of work and the concern we have for our customers. Early on, the customer base was expanded by personal contacts and direct mail. Now, it is largely word-of-mouth and customer loyalty. These are the result of providing a quality product on a timely basis at a reasonable price.  We appreciate your loyal business.
