The Nemeceks are proud of their cutting-edge prepress area and their comprehensive finishing services. AMERIPRINT ’s special “niche market” is mid-sized printing jobs—between quick printing shops and the large- scale, large-run industrial printers. In 1993, after touring Fox Valley’s printing facility, they recognized that the College’s printing machines were obsolete—the newest campus presses were manufactured before AMERIPRINT ’s oldest machines. Something had to be done.
