Welcome and thank you for visiting our site. I hope we'll have an opportunity to become better acquainted in the near future. For now, let me take a moment to share a few insights about myself and the values that guide Premier Print Group.

I had the good fortune to be raised by parents, Dawn and Dave Paulson, who instilled in me many principals for positive living and working. These included having a competitive mindset, being responsible and accountable, a strong work ethic, and appreciating the virtues of honesty and integrity.

I also learned early on that I enjoyed helping people and the warm feelings of satisfaction it brought me. Even in my pre-teen years I was fascinated with the thought of serving others by some day owning a business of my own.

Later, I became inspired and mentored by a high school teacher who eventually became a good friend. It was through Tom Epperson's graphic arts classes that I quickly developed a fascination with the printing industry.

During college, I became a partner in a small printing company, Wave Graphics. I later became its sole owner and added a screen printing division which specializes in printing and embroidering apparel. This is now under the capable management by my brother, Doug. With that business thriving I was prepared and eager to move on to new opportunities.

I had an opportunity to purchase three larger well-established printing companies that now comprise Premier Print Group. Each company had the attributes I was looking for - an excellent reputation for quality, unquestionable integrity, and a commitment to servicing its accounts in the best way possible.

Moreover, each of these companies possessed what I consider the greatest of all assets - exceptionally talented and client-focused team members. Today their collective passion, attitudes and skills are responsible for Premier being one of the largest sheet-fed printers in North America.

We prize the enduring relationships derived from our contributions to our clients' success. These relationships are among the best compensations of being in business. Why not contact one of our sales executives real soon and let us develop a relationship with you?

In closing, I want to gratefully acknowledge my wife and best friend, Kristi. Besides being the best companion I could ask for, Kristi's enthusiasm, support and counsel in all my endeavors are always appreciated and invaluable.
