Schmidt began as a small three-man commercial print shop above a grocery store over 100 years ago. Since that time, we’ve grown into a major supplier of print services for a variety of markets around the world including magazine, newspaper and card pack publishers, multi-channel merchants and direct marketers.Through the years, one thing has remained the same, our commitment to providing exceptional customer service and being a good corporate citizen.

At Schmidt, our mission, vision and values guide our policies, processes and day-to-day interactions.

Our Mission

“Responding to customers creates opportunity and security”
Schmidt’s mission statement is more than neatly framed words hanging on the wall in our lobby.  It guides our actions each and every day.  Everyone at Schmidt makes it their personal mission to create opportunity and security not only for each other but for our customers as well.

We know that we must respond to all of our customers by delivering premier solutions that allow them to compete and succeed in their markets.  Our customer’s success is a mark of our success.  Working as partners with our customers, we can build a secure future together.

We firmly believe in the importance of consistently practicing honesty, fairness and respect in serving our work and home families as well as our customers. Quality relationships are a priority and we insist on treating people the same under similar circumstances.
