Founder and Chairman

Gary Garner

Gary Garner is a dedicated innovator and entrepreneur who laid the foundation for our company in January 1984, initially known as General Litho Services, Inc. During its early stages, the company specialized in offset commercial printing, catering to local manufacturers and advertising agencies. Over the years, we have experienced organic growth and strategic acquisitions, continually adapting our offerings to meet evolving industry demands and the needs of our clients. Our leadership team remains committed to fostering this growth.

With multiple campuses in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, our company now provides a diverse range of services, including UV and digital variable sheetfed and web printing, data processing and mailing, web development, inventory management, as well as fulfillment and distribution services. Our dynamic approach ensures that we stay abreast of industry trends and consistently deliver value to our clients.

Gary, with a career spanning back to 1969 in the print industry, has been actively engaged in various facets of this dynamic field. He has played an integral role as a member of trade associations and peer groups, contributing his expertise to numerous local and national industry boards.

Away from his leadership role, Gary enjoys pursuits such as classic cars, street rods, and golfing. Often, he can be found spending quality time with family and friends at their lake home in Park Rapids, Minnesota.

From my experience leading our company for the past 40 years, my favorite quote comes from Apple founder, Steve Jobs:

“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes…because the people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

I feel like we have lived that for many years…
