With three generations and seven decades of experience, innovation and customer service …
… Thysse Printing Service has evolved a lot over the past 75 years, but we haven’t forgotten our past.
The first generation of Thysse Printing Service was founded back in the days just before WWII. As so many great American companies often are, this one too, was started in a garage by a lone man with a passion. John, a true craftsman, used his hands to build his passion into the printing company that exists today.
We will never know what those first items were that came off that old letterpress, but we do know they were created with the same passion, pride and craftsmanship that serves as the foundation of Thysse Printing Service today. Equipment changes, technology changes, printing needs change, but the example set by John Thysse never will.
A few short years later, Thysse Printing Service added the first Multilith Offset printing press in the Madison area. John immediately recognized the importance of innovation and embracing technology.
What had started as a one-man letterpress shop in a garage had, by 1945, become a full-service offset printer with an established storefront on Winnebago Street on Madison’s east side.
John worked in the company he built from 1941 until his death in 1998.
John’s son, Jay, began working in the shop in 1973 and retired in 2009.
Jason started his career at Thysse Printing Service in 1994 – more than 53 years after John started printing in his garage. In 2008, Jason purchased the company and became the third-generation owner of Thysse Printing Service. Under Jason’s direction, the company has experienced substantial growth, and like the Thysses before him, he has embraced innovation and new technologies. In 2012, Jason moved the company from Madison to Oregon, building a new facility on the city’s north side. With space to add more state of the art equipment and talent for that equipment, the business instantly thrived and required an expansion which was completed in spring of 2015.
