After 30 Years and a Lot of Changes, is Running Stronger than Ever

The leading online digital printing shop, which started as a brick-and-mortar copy shop in small-town Wisconsin, celebrates 30 years in the business.

Despite their growth, the company has maintained much of their small business mindset and outlook.

If 30 years is a long time for a marriage to last these days, it’s an eternity for a small business. But, the nation’s leading online provider of cheap color copies and digital printing, has repeatedly bucked the odds: the company celebrates 30 years in the business this year.

Much has changed since President/CEO David Pressley opened the doors on the first Copy Cat, Inc., in River Falls, Wisc. Over the last three decades the business has gone from a brick-and-mortar neighborhood print shop, serving mostly local clients with a fleet of clunky offset presses, to a strictly online business model, shipping digital printing products to clients across the continent from their facilities in California and Wisconsin.

In the early-to-mid ‘90s the company began shifting its focus from the print world to the emerging World Wide Web. Their services and products expanded to include web design and hosting, graphic design and e-commerce via

Following the success of their bulk paper selling venture, Pressley and Vice President/Marketing Director Jeff Corbo fixed their sights on selling their printing services online next. So began the seedling for what would eventually become, transforming their business model like no other service ever had.

In recent years their growth has been exponential, which lead eventually to their decision to open a second production center in San Luis Obispo, Calif., earlier this year. Now most of California, which was already their biggest state for sales, can get free shipping in just one business day instead of the four business days it took from Wisconsin. This has opened the door to more customers than ever and firmly established the company as the country’s leading online, digital-only printing company.

Despite their growth, the company has maintained much of their small business mindset and outlook. Employees enjoy good pay and benefits. The company has forged loyal, lasting relationships with vendors both local and national. They contribute to non-profits and charities in their communities. Even much of the management has remained onboard since the ‘80s, and their history and experience working together contributes to their ability to adapt quickly to the ever-changing landscape of the printing industry.
