30+ Years Immersed In Ink
GRAPHICALLY COMMUNICATING PRECISION, EXPERTISE AND POISE
At Focus 33, we are at your service. No amount of sophisticated machinery or advanced technology can replace the confidence of authentic human experiences. We are the folks in your corner and on your side.
ON A MISSION
The mission at Focus 33 is to be astoundingly resourceful, freakishly responsive and undeniably expert at all we do. By completing this daily mission, we keep you blissfully free of all nonsense and nuisance. You simply remain focused on an all-pro, hassle-free and successful outcome.
BECAUSE, YOUR COMMITMENTS ARE OUR COMMITMENTS
Our people are empowered and inspired to step up to every challenge, and raise the bar to standards you might find astounding. Here are a few of those relentlessly caring faces working for you.
CEO and President
Chris Clemens is all about building things. Building ideas into realities, and building up the people he serves. Speaking of which, service reigns supreme at Focus 33. When Chris considers the importance of service in his business, he first considers how to best serve his employees. This is a vital difference at Focus 33—a family-like environment that encourages exploration, effort and innovation. Chris lives his faith by working with authenticity, compassion and generosity.
Mr. Clemens has been in the ink and paper business for nearly three decades. 30 years packed with thousands of trusting clients and unlimited opportunities to serve.
- Uniquely Chris: If not for Focus 33… a tarpon fishing guide.
- Meaningful quote: “There is nothing that cannot happen today” – Samuel Clemens (possible relation…?)
Brian Bredenberg is our renowned F33 Sales Boss. Like any great salesperson, Brian is persuasive and articulate and persistent. Unlike any great salesperson, Brian uses those refined attributes for customer-service good, rather than sales-pressure evil. Brian came aboard in 2019, he’s helped us weather the storm of worldwide chaos, and continues to be a rock for our clients and internal team. Brian thrives on the variety of ways he can impact each project and deliver stellar results to our clients. We’re sold on Brian’s heads-up creativity and his unquestionable integrity. Mr. Bredenberg “sells” by doing right and by being authentically passionate about making our customers happy.
- Uniquely Brian: Perhaps not so unique, as he and Chris share the backup career dream of tarpon fishing guides.
- How to influence Brian: Apple fritter.
Renee Glad took over receptionist/customer service rep duties in 1996, and has been answering the call ever since. Working for another version of what we now call Focus 33, Renee has witnessed, and has been a vital contributor to the continued evolution of this company. “The Boss” considers Renee his right hand and an absolutely integral part of F33’s vibe and success. Experience, DNA and motherhood serve her well as a flexible, bendable, never breakable, multi-tasking, project-managing maestro. After more than a quarter century, Ms. Glad arrives each morning anticipating something unexpected and different, and she’d have it no other way. She’s Glad, and we’re so glad she is.
- Uniquely Renee: If not for Focus 33… a teacher.
- Favorite treat: Dark chocolate (for future bribe reference…)
VP of Production
Jon Bishop is F33’s Vice President of Manufacturing And Engineering And Creating The Best Environment Possible For Great Work To Be Done. (The title does not fit well on a business card.) Jon is the ultimate Fix-It Guy, because he actually fixes it before it needs fixing. His depth of resourcefulness, industry insight and preemptive fix-ability is becoming legend at Focus 33. Mr. Bishop loves the attraction and challenge of each day offering a new way to serve a client, solve a problem and/or plant a better idea. We’re intrigued with young JB’s career dream of being a Garbage Man—in order to see what people were throwing out. We love his curiosity and his respect for a good honest day’s work.
- Uniquely Jon: If not for Focus 33… a professional outdoorsman in the depths of Canada.
- Historical hero: Teddy Roosevelt.

I have worked with Focus 33 for several years, and with Chris for years prior. Their printing is always of the highest quality and the service is always on schedule and on budget. This is important to our organization as we are a major non-profit. And even more impressive to me, as I spent a decade in the printing business, I know Focus 33 is special.

Our company can definitely be a challenge to work with, as our timelines and print details are always changing last-minute. But Focus 33 rolls with the punches and delivers what is needed, even if it means physically driving our pieces out to us!

It starts at the top. Working with Chris Clemens, I can confidently say that my project will finish on time and I will have no worries. When he says he'll take care of it, he takes care of it. He's also an awesome expert on materials and process, and the best way to get the job produced.
Our team had a very complicated variable data component. Chris came to our internal team meeting, listened, answered questions and guided us through best practices for this project. He made everything smooth and put our team at ease. Chris a great partner, my go-to printer.
