When we think of Kansas City in the 1890s We think of a colorful era when big personalities shaped the city, the Pendergast brothers made sure that prohibition meant nothing here, and the development of what we know as the Country Club Plaza, The Country Club District, and Ward Parkway took place. As Businesses began to flourish and the inner city culture blossomed, a company that is still around today was born, Callender Printing Company. The Callender family founded the company and brought the most innovative commercial printer Kansas City had seen thus far, and began a family owned business that was passed on from generation to generation for almost 100 years. In 1988 Jim Woehrman purchased the company from the last of the Callenders and began a family tradition of his own. Since 2005 Dan Woehrman has taken over for his father Jim, and would be happy if the company went to one of his sons after his retirement, but he is not one to force his dreams onto his family.

“Our word is bond. If our customer has to have it, we get it for them.”   -Dan Woerman, owner.
