Jennifer began her career over 20 years ago working part time as a printer while in college for Commercial Art. She prides herself in guiding customers through the most confusing jobs. Jennifer will point you in the right direction when you don’t know which way to turn… which works really well here at Thysse, but it does make her the least fun person at a piñata party. Jennifer’s elbows are double jointed. But don’t ask her to show you. It will freak you out.
The first line of DG’s resume read, “Graduated in the top 10 of my high school class”. Months later, we would find out his high school class only had 15 people. No matter… turns out DG is Darn Good at what he does. And Darn Good’s been doing it for over 20 years. DG enjoys the challenging jobs that require unique solutions. His proudest achievement was a print campaign for a camouflage hunting wear company. The campaign was so well executed, no one ever saw it. We hear it was pretty spectacular though.
Brian is a bit of a legend in the printing industry. With over 30 years of experience in just about all areas of printing and customer service, Brian can pretty much run the entire show. In fact, Brian has come to be known as simply "BigShow". And while BigShow is an incomparable talent, he does have one flaw. He is an admitted football junkie. Coaching, playing, watching ... whatever it takes to get his fix. BigShow has been known to start out weekly production meetings in the three point stance. And while we do feel better prepared, none of us are too excited about his two-a-days meeting schedules. In the off season, Brian likes to spend time at his cabin in the Wisconsin Northwoods, where he only turns on the lights on Friday nights.
When asked about any hidden talents, Shawn replied simply, "Rhubarb". Shawn claims he can make anything out of rhubarb. Pies, muffins, bars, bread, pancakes, smoothies ... he even produces a fermented rhubarb beverage called Brewbarb. Described as a seasonal craft beer, Brewbarb is available in your finer hardware and home improvement stores - anywhere paint thinners are sold.
Kim started down the path to certain fame and fortune over 20 years ago when she began her career as a graphic designer. She now uses that expertise and experience to counsel clients and console graphic designers. Kim never passes up shoes on sale or shoes for sale and currently has a collection that rivals Imelda Marcos. Heels, pumps, wedges, mules, loafers, clogs… these are terms she often uses around the office. We’re not sure if she’s talking about her collection or her coworkers.
Here at the TPS House, Dean Bott is in charge of making sure our grade point averages are at acceptable levels. Shout! A little bit louder now. He ensures our attendance is satisfactory. Shout! A little bit louder now. And at the monthly toga parties, he reminds us to keep our shouts just a little bit softer now. Shout! a little bit softer now. As every TPS pledge knows, if you don’t behave and work hard, Dean Bott will put you on double secret probation.
When he’s not occupying the Dean’s chair, Dean enjoys building “Dean’s Chairs” - a line of new rustic furniture and up-cycled old furniture handcrafted in his backyard wood shop.
Dean also enjoy spending time with his family and is passionate about preserving wildlife. Preserving wildlife in his backyard Animal House. Shout! A little bit louder now.

Bert has almost 35 years of printing industry experience. Over those many years, he has developed a deep affinity for staggered inserts. The concept, the design, the printing and especially the cutting to make sure each sheet lines up perfectly… mmmmm. Bert’s a little eccentric, but he’s Bohemian, so that’s expected, and he’s the kind of eccentric we like at Thysse Printing. A detailed-oriented perfectionist.
JJ Giese (pronounced JJ) has been involved in the print industry for over 20 years. With a recently obtained degree in Marketing and certificate in Social Media, JJ’s interests lie on the more analytical side of print as it relates to marketing strategies and merging data models to capture integral alignment algorithms in order to leverage client-centric core competencies. When JJ is not coordinating his clients’ marketing initiatives or spending time with his wife and three small children, you’ll probably find him on a golf course or volleyball court.
Eric estimates he’s been in the printing industry since about Monday, October 16, 1995 at roughly 8:12 am. You know, give or take a minute here or there. Eric is pretty serious about his estimates. In his 20+ years in the print industry, Eric has worn many hats… digital outputter, film maker, proofer, fedora, stocking, fez, beanie and sombreros on Cinqo de Mayo. He now helps Thysse institute Standard Operating Procedures. His program “STOP means GO”, while initially creating mass confusion, has really increased efficiency in the shop.
They say everyone gets 15 minutes of fame, but some get more fame than others. It was 2005 - ESPN 3 - immediately following the National Spelling Bee Finals. Cinderella story. Outta Nowhere. A former flip cup amateur leads her team to the National Championship. What followed was a life of leisure, sailing the open sea, drinking boat drinks and singing Jimmy Buffett songs. It turns out, those bamboo umbrellas they put in those drinks start to get a little annoying and there are only a limited number of Jimmy Buffett songs you can sing by heart. So, Beth left the life of a flip cup champion somewhere south of Margaritaville and made her way back to Wisconsin. She is now sales consulting with the best of them here at Thysse, but still searching for her lost shaker of salt.

Large Format Quarterly, Big Prints Illustrated and Bigger Faster Printing.
With Tina Mowery, it’s always a good morning or a good afternoon here at Thysse Printing and Design. At 9am, it’s “Good morning, Thysse Printing and Design”. At noon, it’s “Good afternoon, Thysse Printing and Design”. At 11:30am it’s kind of a gray area and depends more on what kind of night Tina had the night before.
Besides greeting our customers and directing your calls, Tina is a master of logo placement. She can print logos on pens, embroider logos on caps, laser etch logos on glass … she can do anything and has done just about everything. Except skywriting. She is still waiting for her first sky writing request. So, if you want to see your logo written in the clouds, give Tina a call. But call at 11:30am ... just to see what she says.
Brett has over 20 years of print and graphic design experience. Formerly the proprietor of Geebo Design, Brett was once one of Thysses most important, easy to work with, exciting, fun, good-looking clients. That is what it says on his bio anyway. The bio he wrote himself. When not lending creative energy to the Thysse environment, Brett enjoys skiing (both water and snow) and golf (both the hard kind and mini). His favorite Bretts are Favre, Hull and Butler, his favorite sausages are Brats and he finds Brits to be an extremely friendly and courteous people.
Gregg has been involved with printing for almost 45 years. The extra “g” in Gregg actually stands for “Golly that’s a long time” and was officially added to his name during a ceremony last October. Golly That’s a Long Time Schepp does everything from customer service, to plating, estimating, bindery, delivery and of course, printing. Gregg’s successes are marked only by happy customers. He loves adding a new name to his loooooooooooooong list of “Happies” that started way back in 1970. At night, when the print shop is quiet, we sometimes catch Gregg reading through that list with a smile on his face.
Patti likes to say she didn‘t choose printing, printing chose her. Patti "got the call" over 20 years ago while standing in line at a Kinko’s waiting for her David Hasselhoff posters to print. "I can do a better job than this", she said, and she’s been doing a better job ever since. Print, copy, bind, stitch, collate, staple, waltz, polka, bowling, yahtzee... she does it all.
Steve Schmitz. You’ve heard all the stories and all of the stories are true. Except that one… that one is just ridiculous. Steve is working on his second quarter century in the printing trade. He’s been doing this for over 25 years. Steve is one of those guys that is always happy and always happy to see you. And why wouldn’t he be? He gets to work with all of us every day. He really is pretty lucky. Steve has that kind of mind that can be involved with a project from initial design concepts all the way through production and implementation. He likes making his clients look good and we like that he likes that.
Without Jason Thysse, we would just be “Printing Service”. Jason comes from a long line of printers. His Dad was a printer, his Dad‘s Dad was a printer, his Dad’s Dad’s Dad… well, you get the point. His blood type is B Process. His eye color ranges from Cyan to Magenta to Yellow to Black and he lists his height at 35 1/2 reams. Jason is the only person we know who brings his kids into the shop to have them UV coated before heading to the beach.
