When Vomela first opened its doors more than 60 years ago in the booming river town of St. Paul, Minnesota, no one could have guessed we’d become one of the preeminent printing companies in America. Or maybe they could have. After all, from day one we’ve had an obsessive commitment to quality. And customers. And relationships.

That’s what the growth of Vomela has been all about—increasing our ability to provide quality printing of all kinds, and forming relationships that better support our customers.

Today we have more than 20 offices and production facilities throughout the U.S. and Canada. Here’s a look at the journey:
