Premier Prints was founded by a Tupelo, MS, family with deep roots in the furniture supply industry. The company was founded in February of 1991 and began by producing a printed decking fabric marketed to upholstered furniture manufacturers. The product allowed each furniture company to personalize their products with custom logos and quickly became a staple for the industry.
Through hard work, research and necessity, the business branched into printing home decorative fabrics. After 12 years of steady growth, we purchased a new printer and installed it in Sherman, MS. The new machine is a 12 color Stork capable of efficiently producing the best quality prints available in the market. Since this move in 2003, our fabric line has continued to grow tremendously. We continue to expand our facility to meet the needs of our customers, and we are very thankful that Premier Prints has turned into one of the most successful fabric brands in the USA.
Premier Prints is dedicated to remaining an environmentally friendly company by using a water-based pigment printing system. Our company has experience printing on a variety of substrates including cotton, poly/cotton blends, cotton/rayon, and polyester. These fabrics range in widths from 45" to 65" are MADE IN USA. We are capable of applying water resistant, flame retardant, and ultraviolet enhancing finishes.
