Panther Premier Print Solutions Expands Reach with Acquisition of Advertising Arts in Sioux Falls, SD

Sioux Falls, SD —December 13, 2023 — Panther Premier Print Solutions, a leading provider of innovative printing and marketing solutions, is thrilled to announce its recent acquisition of Advertising Arts, a company with 74 years of history providing custom signage, decals, vehicle graphics, apparel, and promotional solutions. This strategic move is poised to enhance Panther’s capabilities and further solidify its position as the most comprehensive print solutions provider in the region.

The acquisition of Advertising Arts brings together two industry leaders with a shared commitment to exceptional service, quality, creativity, and great turn-around time. With a combined legacy of over 110 years of experience, the union will enable Panther to offer an even broader range of services to its clients, including vehicle graphics, expanded sign offerings, and promotional items.

“We are excited to welcome the talented team from Advertising Arts into the Panther family,” said Aaron Mell, President of Panther Premier Print Solutions. “This acquisition aligns with our strategic vision to provide our clients with a one-stop solution for all their printing, apparel, sign and promotional needs. We believe that the combined strengths of Panther and Advertising Arts will create new opportunities for our clients and contribute to the growth of our business.”

The acquisition will also lead to operational synergies, allowing Panther to optimize processes, improve efficiency, and provide an even higher level of service to its customers. Clients of both companies can expect a seamless transition and continued dedication to delivering high-quality, innovative solutions.

“We are grateful for the years that Ad Arts has been a part of our life and the phenomenal people that make up the team,” said Matt and Angel Bonacker, owners of Advertising Arts. “We are looking forward to the integration with Panther and their leadership team as this will give continued opportunities for growth and success for everyone involved.  We are proud of how far Ad Arts has come, and between Panther’s vast resources and stable, family-owned structure, we honestly couldn’t ask for a better business to sell to.”

As part of the acquisition, Panther Premier Print Solutions will retain the existing staff of Advertising Arts, ensuring a smooth integration and continuity of service for clients.  Following a 60-day transition period all services will be under one roof at the current Panther facility in north central Sioux Falls.

This acquisition is a significant milestone for Panther as it continues to grow its footprint in the Sioux Falls community and beyond. The company remains committed to fostering creativity, providing exceptional customer service, and staying at the forefront of printing and marketing innovations.
