Who we are

Ioway Record Printing in Muscatine is a full service copy and print provider. We specialize in quality and delivery when needed to our customers in the Muscatine area. No job is too small. Our goal is creating ideas that help you make your concept a reality . . .

Why Us

Because we are just a “little bit better” at several things important to our customers. We are a small locally owned company- not a chain owned by ‘Wall Street’. Personal service is not a thing of the past with us. We care about our customers.

In the Muscatine phone book, we are the first listing under “Printers”. Many times when someone is shopping for printing we are called first. We take the time to listen and help our prospective customers understand their needs and help them to ask the right questions. In other words, we are teachers. If they happen to call someone else they then have the knowledge to ask better questions regarding their needs.

Having worked for similar companies in Phoenix, AZ and Burlington, VT, we found some people do things in different ways. The varied experiences gained from different individuals gives us the knowledge to choose the best process to produce the best product at a reasonable cost to our customers.
We always enjoy a new challenge- maybe you should give us a call.

We hope that you will.

History

The Record Printing began operation in 1899 located on Iowa Avenue in Muscatine, Iowa. About one year later they moved to the corner of Second Street and Chestnut. Sometime during the 1930’s the company relocated to a larger building at 214-216 Chestnut Street. Primary production was calendars and yearbooks. In 1945 Record Printing combined operation with Ioway Printing and moved to 212 Walnut Street. In June 2003 we relocated to 506 Mulberry Ave. Our current location is 316 West Third Street since April 2008.

The company incorporated in 1967. At this time offset presses were added to the letterpress operation. Photo typesetting was introduced in 1979. Allen Kiddoo purchased the company from Francis VanderLinden in 1989. Since that time we have removed letterpress equipment, upgraded to desktop publishing in the Mac format, replaced older offset presses with newer machines, and replaced other equipment as needed. In 1996 we started to use the resources of the Internet and now receive and send jobs by this additional means. In 2000 we added a high speed digital printer. Many jobs can now be output with this printer at reduced cost and decreased turn-around time over offset. We also offer low cost color copies, soft cover perfect book binding, plastic coil binding and vinyl graphics.
