Firespring opened its doors in 1992 as an AlphaGraphics Printshop in downtown Lincoln.
Adding a second location in Omaha in 1995, we soon began to sense that this new “internet” thing might catch on and, in 1996, launched an internet services division called Level100 Communications which started building websites for local businesses.
In 2001, we left the AlphaGraphics franchise network to forge our own path. The print communications side became known as Cornerstone Print & Marketing while Level100 changed its name to Digital IMS, which stood for Integrated Marketing Solutions.
In 2007, we found our forever brand as Firespring. As a result of our team-centered culture, we were featured in Inc. Magazine in 2011 as one of the Top 50 Small Company Workplaces.
Firespring and Cornerstone moved back under the same roof in 2012, occupying our corporate headquarters at 1201 Infinity Court in Lincoln. One year later, we merged with Floor99, a cloud and managed IT services provider.
In 2014, we became the first Certified B Corporation in Nebraska, joining TOMS Shoes, Ben& Jerry’s, Patagonia and more than 2,000 companies leading a global movement to redefine success in business. Our B Corp status cements our core purpose of leveraging our people, products and profit as a force for good.
In 2015, Firespring and Cornerstone joined forces with local ad agencies 42 and Snitily Carr. The merger enabled Firespring to become one of the largest marketing communications firms in the Midwest with more than 250 team members in Lincoln, Omaha and Council Bluffs.
Today, Firespring provides print, creative, website and IT solutions for nearly 8,000 brands, businesses and nonprofits from mom and pop to Fortune 500. We’re proud to be nationally recognized as a top workplace, one of the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. and a global leader in generating positive community impact.
