who we are
Our #1 job is to make your job easier.
A Message from Mike…
Hi, I’m Mike Huebner, President of Graphicolor Printing. Thanks for taking time out of your day to visit our website and learn about who we are. I know you have many options when deciding on which print provider to select, and I want to tell you why you should select us.
CUSTOMER SERVICE. Sure, all providers may say that, but we truly walk the talk. It starts from the moment you contact us. We answer the phone when you call and we respond with lightning speed to answer your questions or provide the information you need.
It’s our #1 job to make your job easy. We’re willing to go the extra mile and do what it takes to meet your tight deadlines. We make the impossible possible, and we’ll work nights and weekends to make it happen. Just ask our clients.
THE PRINTED PRODUCT. Graphic perfection is only achieved through the right combination of people and technology. That’s why we’ve invested in the most experienced people and the best technology out there. Year after year, we enhance our skills, keep up with trends, and invest in the latest hardware and software technology. Just ask our clients.
Take some time to read about our team members and you’ll quickly understand that we all have the same mindset, the customer is first. Need more proof?
Our clients rave about our products and service, starting on our DIGITAL & OFFSET page, their testimonials say it all. Why don’t you ask us for references? We’ll be glad to give them to you.
If you’re ever in the New Berlin area, stop by and visit our office. One of the first things you’ll see are walls with full-size banners that say “Let’s WOW our customers today.” It’s what we do, from your first contact to the box your product arrives in.
Between us, we’ve been in the print industry for over 250 years; with an average of 23 years of experience…each! We’ve seen it all and have lived through the ebb and flow of the industry. So when some people say that “print is dead,” it’s far from the truth. Today, print is just as important for building your brand as digital.
As the industry has changed, we’ve kept up with the latest and greatest leading edge hardware and software. The thing we haven’t changed is the way we take care of each print project and client. Your expectations, your deadlines, your budget, and your day-to-day issues in developing the right brand message really matter to us.
We bend over backwards and sideways to ensure that you have the confidence in getting your project done on time, and done exactly as you expect.
You can count on the team at Graphicolor Printing to deliver, it’s who we are.
RELAX…we got this.
I can hardly believe that I’ve been in the industry for over 30 years. When I started, I worked with clients early on in my career and learned quickly that if I made the buying experience for them easy, they would send their printing to me. I also learned that tailoring services to each individual’s unique needs builds long lasting relationships and continued business. As President of Graphicolor Printing, I’ve instilled that mindset within our culture. Whether it’s selecting the best paper, meeting exceptionally fast deadlines, or managing projects while clients are on vacation; service is a big part of what we do and providing a quality product is a GIVEN. My “likes” are eating the right foods and staying fit to fuel my day. It’s extremely important to me to have the confidence and energy to be the best that I can be for my clients.
I’ve been in the print industry for over 20 years. I started my print career in a co-op school program where I attended class in the a.m. and worked in the print shop in the p.m. I’ve worked in every facet of the business since, I’ve seen lots of change, and understand what works and what doesn’t work for clients. I’ve earned my stripes and my title “Print Superhero” so named by a client 20 years ago who was so thankful when I helped her out of a bind and saved the day! That says it all for me. I do everything in my power to go above and beyond just to make my client’s day just a little brighter and to make their day easier. My “likes” are traveling, and especially to fabulous Viva Las Vegas!
As a sales rep with over 25 years of print and direct mail experience, my job is to help make your job stress free. I’m here to lend my expertise so you can look like a brand super-star. My “likes” are spending quality time with friends and the “fam,” fine dining, going to see live music and sporting events, and playing golf. I also like to chill-out in warm tropical places where I can soak up rays and dig my toes in the sand!
I truly believe that trust is the cornerstone of all relationships. I’ve been building and sustaining great relationships in the print industry for over two decades. My clients trust me because I follow through with what I say I’ll do. No rocket science here; building trust one-on-one, being present, actively listening, exceeding expectations, and showing empathy when it’s really needed. That’s Graphicolor 101. My “likes” are hanging out with the family and fulfilling the critical responsibilities of playing chauffeur to all things fun.
Over the past 10 years, I’ve worked in a variety of roles in the print industry. I’ve been a graphic designer, a project coordinator, and a prepress production artist. I know our clients sometimes get stressed with too many things to do and not enough hours in the day. The last thing they need is to worry about their print project. I’m truly passionate about making their experience effortless. If a client doesn’t understand the printing process or has any concerns, I’m here to help and put their mind at ease. When it’s warm and sunny, I’m outside as much as possible! I enjoy boating and paddle boarding. I also love cooking with friends and family and am always looking to get my hands on as many crafting projects as I can.
I truly listen and empathize with my customers. I always put myself in their shoes and help to solve their print or design problem of the day. My customers trust me and know that I’ll deliver their print job so it’s always right and on time. It’s the trust and relationships I’ve built over the last 25+ years that have made my work in the print industry so rewarding. On a personal note, I’m driven with a passion to ensure my son and daughter are given the opportunities to succeed and teach them to follow The Golden Rule in life, as I have. I love any sport that involves being outdoors, especially skiing, camping, or golfing. After a long day of breathing all that fresh air, I like to end it by playing chef and cooking delicious food for friends and family.
I’ve been in the print industry for over 20 years. My goal is to truly get to know my clients so I can tailor our service to fit each individual’s unique needs. I have a passion for what I do and it shows. Every day, my goal is to exceed my clients’ service expectations and leave that positive and lasting impression. We live in a fast-paced world filled with deadlines and stress. Getting a print project done shouldn’t add to that. I make your experience with us really easy, so you can focus on other things. True customer service is what we deliver, so let’s get acquainted! My “likes” are music, good food, and weekend escapes. As a Wisconsinite, I crave warm weather. My dream is to someday move to Florida so I can enjoy the warm days and soak up the sun!
I’m proud to say that I’ve been in the print industry for over 30 years. I know that every print job is as important to the client as the last, no matter how big or small, It’s all that matters to them and to me. Everyday, I do everything in my power to exceed my clients’ expectations. My “likes” are staying in shape by running 5 miles every other day. I’ve played hardball for 19 years and love to hit it deep and out of the park! I also enjoy baseball, NASCAR & MOTO GP.
I’ve been in the printing biz for just about 20 years. I have a philosophy of treating each client with the utmost care and importance regardless of size. Big or small, everyone matters. We follow the Golden Rule here: Treat everyone like you want to be treated. It’s a very simple but often overlooked concept, when we’re all are just trying to get through the day. Here, when you call, regardless of the kind of day you’re having, we put you at ease right away. If you’re in a pinch, we’ll help. We want you to know we have your back and want to make your day. I’m proud to be a member of the Graphicolor Team! My “likes” are cooking, hanging out with my boys, enjoying the great outdoors, and relaxing by a BIG bonfire just staring at the stars.
I’m someone who’s been around the block and has had the benefit of learning and experiencing all facets of the print industry. Starting from the bottom-up over 30 years ago, I’ve driven trucks, managed storefronts, and have been a VP of operations. I’ve seen it all and have done it all. That’s given me a unique perspective on just how to exceed my clients’ expectations through a combination of delivering excellent customer service and an outstanding product. I come to work everyday laser focused on striving how to top what I’ve delivered from the day before. My “likes” are fishing (reeling in the big one), music that hits the highest number on the volume button, and spending time with the grand kids.
I can’t believe that I’ve been in the printing business for over 25 years. It sure doesn’t feel like a quarter of a century, and that’s probably due to the fact that I genuinely love what I do. Teddy Roosevelt said, “Far and away the best price that life has to offer is a chance to work hard at work worth doing.” Taking a project from a client’s idea to a completed product is work worth doing. I tirelessly work to stay on top of all the latest trends and technology in order to produce the best printed materials possible. Every project demands a rigorous attention to detail, because if our client’s product doesn’t look good, we don’t look good. Many people don’t know this about me, but I like to run a lot.
How time flies! I’ve worked in print for over 20 years, some of that time was spent working for a trade association advocating for the industry. I like being physically active and enjoy gardening, cycling, and going to my daily 5:00 a.m. aerobics classes! Every year I travel to warm climates; tropical places very similar to our HOME page video. I dream of someday retiring where there’s surf and sand!
I’m the man behind the curtain that pulls all the levers and strings to make sure our print production runs as smooth as silk so your job gets done on time. I’ve got over 28 years of experience under my belt and you can be assured that I manage a tight ship. Take a break, go on a weekend get-away, or leave on a long vacation to your favorite warm place. Relax, you don’t have to worry about your print project because we’ll take care of it. My “likes” are staying fit at the gym and bowling that perfect 300 game. Set ’em up, I’ll knock ’em down. I’ve thrown three perfect 300 games and have my eye on the pocket for many more.
