In 1997, founder and owner, Curt Gilfert started Advantage Printing with a dream in his 2 car garage. As the sole employee, Curt operated as a salesman during the day and printed in the evening. The goals were simple and he was able to grow his business by providing excellent customer service through personal, in-depth knowledge of customer needs to provide high quality print services. Customer service and satisfaction played a key role in growing the business. Building trust, a strong reputation for customer intimacy, and superior service continue to be high priorities in daily operations and decision making.
In 1999, with increased business and promising growth potential, Advantage Printing moved into the office at 317 South 4th Street. During this time Curt added a full time graphic artist and a part time pressman.
In 2003 a discussion was initiated by Ed Wetting, the former owner and operator of Superior Printing which had been in Ed’s family for more than 75 years. In 2005 the acquisition was final and Advantage Printing moved into it’s new location at 510 Cherokee Street in Leavenworth, KS where it remained for the next 15 years.
During the summer of 2020 Curt moved the shop to its current location at 500 Oak Street. He was finally in a location that had the additional space to house the large format equipment to produce banners, magnets, enlarged photo prints and custom decals along with automotive wraps. We still offer a full repertoire of commercial printing options. Our focus still remains on the customer and providing intimate, quality services that aren’t available at other print shops, so stop in or give us a call and see for yourself why. Curt has a private collection of antique printing equipment that he loves to share if anyone is interested to come by for a tour!
