YOU ARE THE DRIVING FORCE BEHIND OUR WORK

First Impression Print & Design is customer-centric, communication savvy, and always ready for a creative challenge. All this comes with a side of laughter and fun.

Get to Know Us

We’ve recently undergone a rebranding effort. Octopus and ink, get it? We can thank my son, Jake, for that concept.


We embrace our rich local history and are prepared for a future impacted by digital trends and technological change. Our 15,000-square-foot facility houses a cohesive, well trained staff and abundant resources to tackle any print or fulfillment job. Today’s fast-paced marketing forum and competitive market requires maintaining a solid footing in the products and services that our customers rely on us for – while also making room for the new products and services that the customers need and deserve.


Experience, skill, and integrity are key attributes of what our customers say are the most important aspects of their relationship with our business. We take every relationship very personally. We are thankful for each and every customer. This is proven time and time again when our counter staff remembers your name and greets you warmly every time you enter the front door. We will make you feel that you are working with friends.

And, we give back to the communities where we live and work with volunteerism and sponsorships.

We’re always looking for people with the right attitude, great work ethic and desire to learn. If that’s you, please send  a cover letter, resume and references to print@firstimpressionprinting.net. Or mail it to First Impression Print & Design, 401 Front Street, Brainerd MN 56401. We love paper!

“I hardly ever leave reviews but I really wanted to showcase my experience with not only first impressions, but specifically, Serena. She has gone above and beyond to create my vision and do it with a quick turn around since I was in a rush. We had so many compliments to the point where we are already on our second order. We will continue to refer and bring our business back to first impression.
