ABOUT THE OWNERS
Dan and Brenda Kafka, the owners of Pro Image Partners, have carried their own small town rural Minnesota values into the Pro Image culture. Their most important value is treating employees, suppliers, and most importantly customers like family. Long term success has been possible through their education as they are both college graduates and also experienced in Corporate America. Brenda was previously a CPA by trade and Dan a National VP of Marketing. A truly caring approach to addressing customer needs through giving back to the communities and paying it forward has always been a way of life for Dan and Brenda, and Pro Image Partners as a whole.
As the owners always say, "We are in the people business. We just happen to sell clothing, vehicle graphics, and signs." That short saying strongly reinforces the “Pro Image Experience” and the company philosophy. Pro Image has always been self sufficient with nearly every order made in house, whether that may be an order for 5000 shirts or filling our minimum order of 1. We strive to be a one stop image shop by covering a large range of products. Also, by making sure each customer is well cared for whether they need their order by the end of next month or the end of the day. We continue to be invested in technology and conveniently accessible via the web, mobile web, and phone. And as a proactive company we also invest in our employees through valuable training and encouraging independent and creative thinking. By promoting this philosophy we effectively promote ourselves as the ideal Pro Image Partner for many customers and vendors.
