About Us

Eric and Lorraine Rokitnicki formed Bindery 1, Inc. in 1976. Eric and Lorraine immigrated from Poland in 1966. Eric was employed at both Wallace Homesteaders and later Commercial Printing, in the finishing departments.

The doors first opened in 1976 on 3rd Street, in the downtown Des Moines area. There were three employees including the owners. The business started with 2 small folders, a cutter, a drill, and a hand drop stitcher. They soon out grew the first facility and now many years later the company operates out of a 150,000 sq foot building. Their daughters Gigi and Renatta now manage the day-to-day operations along with family and dedicated employees. The equipment has changed over the years, but the concept remains the same.

In 1997 the owners expanded into a new venture of finishing – Data Solutions. This branch of the company offers new services to match our ever-changing industry. This division currently specializes in variable data personalization, 4 color digital printing, CD duplication, as well as full service mail processing.

We hope you will take the time to check out our services. We look forward to doing business with you in the very near future.
