our story

In 1948, Henry Schiele opened a small print shop in an old barber shop. Henry would sell by day and print by night. After years of dedication his hard work paid off and the brand Schiele took off on a wonderful whirlwind of adventures. Years later with commitment, some big decisions, acquisitions and a ton of passion, the Schiele Group is now one of the largest printers in the Midwest. Henry’s high morals and values were his guiding principles for growth which are still followed within the company today.

Today, the Schiele Group is a multi-plant enterprise that produces more than a billion pieces of printed material each year. But no matter how big we get we will never forget that we put our reputation on the line with every order we produce. We guarantee you satisfaction!
