Nestled in the heart of Marshfield, Wisconsin, lies a company whose story embodies the spirit of local enterprise and dedication to quality: Premier Printing. But this success wasn’t built overnight. It all began in 2004, not in a grand office, but in a humble basement. Back then, known as “Premier Graphics,” the company focused on media production, catering to a niche audience.

Fueled by ambition and a commitment to customer satisfaction, the founders, Benjamin Bauer, Branden Bodendorfer, and Tim Rasmussen  saw an opportunity to expand. In 2005, the acquisition of GraphX Solutions opened doors to a wider range of services, including document and business printing. This marked a turning point, transforming Premier Graphics into the well-rounded printing powerhouse we know today.
