Sheri Hartkemeyer Owner of Cookbook Specialists

Sheri (Bitterman) Hartkemeyer was born and raised in Independence, Iowa. Sheri and her husband live on an acreage where they spend their spare time with horses, cattle and show pigs. They involve their family, including grandchildren, enjoying animals and the “simple” life.

Sheri began her printing career in 1983. Throughout her career, she obtained a vast knowledge of the printing industry. In 2003, Sheri purchased Print Express in Independence, Iowa. In 2007, Print Express purchased and merged Miller Printerie, a commercial printing company in Independence. In December of 2010, Brennan Printing Cookbooks joined the family, with G&R Publishing’s custom cookbook division following in May of 2018. Our most recent merger in May of 2021 is with Jumbo Jack’s Cookbooks, Student Planners and Calendars. This provides an advantage to customers who are wanting to do a reprint of books published by any of the Cookbook companies we have merged together. In many cases, we will still have the electronic file.

With the combined merger of companies, Print Express/Cookbook Specialists/Jumbo Jack’s offers high quality digital printing. We produce Newsletters, Postcards, Variable Data Mailings, Letterhead, Envelopes, Business Cards, Forms, Brochures, Flyers, Posters, Banners, Canvases, Labels, virtually anything printed on paper.

Our Cookbook division offers plastic coil bound, perfect bound or hard cover books. We also produce History, Veteran’s books, Class Reunion, Family Reunion books, just to name a few. UV coating, laminating, folding, and all bindery aspects to make your finished product shine!
