Rapid Printers was started in 1984 by longtime New Hampton businessman, Ray Klenske. The small main street print shop serviced the New Hampton area under Klenske until 1996. In December of 1996, Ray sold the business to current owner, Brad Schwickerath. Brad grew up around main street business as his father, Lynn, has owned and operated Office World since the mid 1980's.
In 1996, having freshly graduated from Waldorf College with a business management degree, Brad welcomed the opportunity to purchase the print shop from Klenske.
In the fall of 2000, Rapid Printers was moved to its current location next to Office World - 21 East Main Street, New Hampton.
In recent years the business has improved with one offset press, digital color printing equipment, high production printer, updated finishing equipment, and 2 employees servicing all your design and printing needs.
