Our Story


A to Z Printing began as Prairie Paper in 1984. As the only supplier of recycled paper in Lincoln, Nebraska at the time, we began a tradition of environmental responsibility that remains an important part of our philosophy today. In 1986, we made the transition from paper supplier to printer and A to Z Printing was born.

As the first green printer in Lincoln, A to Z has always believed in doing our part to keep the earth beautiful. We use varying levels of recycled paper and paper made from sustainable forests. We also use seed-based, zero-VOC inks and biodegradable toners. We recycle anything and everything we can, from used printing plates, used inks, cardboard and plastic wrap, to recyclable items our team members bring from home.

A to Z Paperie started as a boutique invitation design and paper styling studio. We work one-on-one with our clients to create personalized, one-of-a-kind invitation suites for weddings and events of all types. Showers, birthdays, anniversaries, retirement celebrations, dinner parties, family reunions, holiday gatherings… and the list goes on.

Today, A to Z Paperie is a solution of Firespring, a marketing communications firm with more than 200 team members in Lincoln, Omaha and Council Bluffs. We opened our doors in 1992 as a print services provider in downtown Lincoln with great respect and admiration for the A to Z brand and the environmentally conscious approach it embodies. Indeed, we’re humbled and proud to carry on the tradition.

As Nebraska’s first Certified B Corporation, Firespring’s highest priority is to create an abundance of positive social and environmental impact. Our B Corp status cements our core purpose of leveraging our people, products and profit as a force for good. We’re also honored to be nationally recognized as a top workplace and a global leader in generating positive community impact.
