Our Story

Nahan is an independent, privately-owned and operated full service direct marketing and print solutions provider headquartered in St. Cloud. Minnesota. Our Midwest work ethic and decades of experience lead to award-winning work that helps scale national customers.

For over 50 years, we’ve prided ourselves on our customer-first approach, emphasizing collaboration to understand client needs, provide creative insights and strategy, and deliver effective print marketing at the best value possible.


Founded in 1962 by Jim and Helen Nahan, the company established a strong focus on quality exemplary customer service, and continuous improvement. Decades later, those guiding principles have led to incredible growth in customers, employees, and services.

What was then a 15-person print shop is now home to nearly 400 employees, industry-leading direct marketing, printing, and full-service direct mail capabilities. Sure, we’ve expanded our offerings to meet the ever- changing needs of our customers. But we still hold strong to those family values and Midwest roots that built our company. That’s the Nahan difference.
