The Colors of Cornerstone Copy Center
"We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, while others bright, some have weird names, but they all have learned to live together in the same box." - Robert Fulghum
Cornerstone Copy Center has a great working team. Representing many different colors and walks in life. As artists many of us live outside the box but we get along. Just so you can get to know a little about us, we thought we would let some of our colors shine.
I have been working at Cornerstone Copy since 1987 when I started out as “Copyboy.” I now own the Company along with my partner warren d. mosier. I first started printing in high school when I was 15. I did a work study in the graphics shop. After graduating from high school, I went through a 2-year course at Dakota County Vo-Tech, now known as Dakota County Technical College. After earning my degree in graphic arts I went to work for Unisys Corporation using the graphics skills I acquired to make computer chips until I found work at Cornerstone Copy Center in 1987.
Working at and now owning Cornerstone has given me the opportunity to meet a number of great people and the fact that I get to work each day with a wonderful staff is very rewarding. Stop in and see for yourself. Currently I do many of the quotes and handle the day to day administration for our two locations. You will most likely walk by my desk on your way to see warren!
And by the way my favorite color is blue. It reminds me of the lake which reminds me of the boat which reminds me of...you get the picture!
I began as a freelance set-and-light designer for the theatre as a graduate of Bethel College. Along with theatre, I worked for Deafness Education Advocacy Foundation and the Minnesota Relay Service. In 1993, I began a graphic design business out of my home. The business was called Advanced Printing Design (APD). I contracted most of my design work to be printed with Cornerstone Copy Center. So it was a natural fit for Daniel and I to buy Cornerstone Copy Center and continue to build the company. Together we formed Advanced Printing Design, LTD as co-owners and purchased Cornerstone Copy Center in May 2001.
I work on both the creative for Cornerstone as well as the technical side. I love graphic design - the continuing challenge of putting pieces together to create visual communication. I am currently a member of the Burnsville Rotary (Noon club) and serve as a board member on the Burnsville Convention and Visitor's Bureau.
A remnant from my theatre days..., "Poiple, my favorite color..." I am an avid water gardener and love to take photos. When not at work you can find me at the cabin or better yet out on the pontoon and very rarely without a camera in hand!
Lakeville Operations Manager
I started in the printing business working at a company that serviced and sold printing equipment way back in 1976. I worked with Ron Lund until he left and started Cornerstone. I met and married my husband Paul (see his bio) and worked at Ross Printing until we merged with Cornerstone in 2004.
In 2007 Cornerstone opened a Lakeville location and I was commissioned and sent off to manage that location. It is a great community to work in and I look forward to continued growth!
Cornerstone is a wonderful place to work. We truly care for each other and the community in which we work and play!
My favorite colors are the colors of fall...working at Cornerstone has made me appreciate most colors!
Production Manager & Distributor Friendly
My favorite color is blue…winter or summer, blue skies make me happy.
I started in the printing business fresh out of high school over 40 years ago. I worked in many different areas and found this industry so exciting I opened my own business, Ross Printing, in 1987. Over the years I developed a great relationship with Cornerstone Copy Center helping with their “ink” on paper needs. So great that in 2004 when Cornerstone built their new building, their offer to buy my company and go to work for them was one I couldn’t refuse.
This is still an exciting industry and from where I look…the sky is always blue!
I joined Cornerstone Copy Center in 2015 when Cornerstone launched “Integra by Cornerstone”, their wholesale division. In my 27 years in the printing business I have seen my changes. Technology has certainly left its imprint on the printing trade.
Working in this industry has given me the chance to work on myself personally and develop my interpersonal relationship skills as customer relations is critical to the success of my job. I have always enjoyed serving others and my position allows me that opportunity.
Orange and yellow, the colors of vitality, hope, and happiness do it for me!
Direct Mailer & Customer Service
I have worked at Cornerstone since the Fall of 2006. I had been a stay-at-home Mom, and my youngest child headed off to Kindergarten – I needed to get a “real” job.
My main function here at Cornerstone is to process mailing lists, prepare USPS mailing reports, and prepare direct mail for delivery to the post office. Dealing with the ever-changing rules and regulations of the USPS, and direct mailing is always a challenge, but one that I enjoy.
When not working with mailings, I help with customer service, bindery, billing, and anything else that may need to be done. Cornerstone is a great place to work, and I like what I do.
My favorite color is blue. Just look at the pretty blue sky with the puffy clouds.
Graphic Designer & Focus in Pix Coordinator
I started working at Cornerstone Copy Center in March, 2011. As a graphic designer, I am passionate about mixing both digital and photographic media. I began my career managing several one-hour photo retail stores in the local Twin Cities area. I then worked for over 17 years in both production and marketing for a well-known, national trade show display and graphics manufacturing company, with an emphasis on large-format graphics.
I've always loved designing my own greeting cards as a hobby, so designing templates for Focus in Pix is a perfect fit for me!
I love ALL colors and always have a hard time choosing a favorite because I enjoy designing with the entire spectrum.
My hobbies include baking, cooking, fishing, and outdoor photography. My husband and I live in Burnsville and we have a teenage daughter.
My first degree is in Hospitality Management but I decided that graphic design was my true calling, so I went back to school and got a Design degree. I have worked as a graphic designer since 1999 and started working at Cornerstone in September of 2005.
I love coming to work every day because I get to use my talents of being creative AND organized! I design projects for customers (menus and really, really big projects like conference programs and directories are my favorites) as well as prepare customer files for production. Being detail-oriented is one of my strengths and definitely helps me keep my big projects on track!
When I’m not at work you’ll find me hanging out with my husband and son, knitting, cooking, volunteering, watching football (especially the Vikings…yes even in the bad years, which seems to be the case most of the time these days) and snowmobiling (Arctic Cat of course).
My favorite color is yellow because I think it is a happy color and brings a bit of sunshine everywhere it is!
I graduated from St. Cloud Technical College with a degree in Advertising Communication and Design. After I graduated, I moved back to my hometown in Duluth where I worked at a beer distributor and would design print materials for bars, restaurants, and liquor stores. After I’d design the pieces, I’d also do the printing and cutting myself. This experience is what lead me to apply at Cornerstone Copy when I decided to job hunt in the twin cities area.
Two years later, and I’m still working here building experience and continuing to grow as a graphic designer. I feel very fortunate to have found such a great job that is so involved with the community, and truly puts the customer first. With us being a local business, it’s important for us to build real relationships with the customers we work with and ensure they’re happy with the products and service we’re providing.
My favorite color is glitter… I know that’s not a specific color, but I think that is a perfect representation of me and my love for all things girly!
I attended both the University of Illinois, Champaign, as well as Columbia College in Chicago. After a long career in daily newspaper photojournalism, I freelanced for nearly a decade while helping to raise my children.
I joined Cornerstone Copy in Lakeville in 2016, and it is a perfect fit! Aside from graphic design, I am involved in the entire process from print to finish, as well as a bit of customer service. I am blessed to work with the most amazing people—both here as well as the Burnsville crew. We operate well as a team, making each customer’s job a challenge easily conquered.
My favorite color is blue, and my favorite season is fall. I enjoy photography, reading, playing hockey, watching the Blackhawks, volunteering at church, and spending time with my family. I live in Prior Lake with my incredible husband and two active boys.
I graduated from Wisconsin Lutheran College in Milwaukee, WI with a degree in Media Design. I moved back home to Northwestern WI (where I still live) to start my job hunt after graduation. Never did I think I would find a local Minnesota copy shop to start my career, but I couldn’t be happier that I did! Cornerstone’s emphasis on customer service was apparent from the moment I stepped foot in the door, and their involvement in the community was the icing on the cake!
I feel it’s important to “know a little bit about a lot of stuff” when it comes to design. I’m so glad I’ve adopted this philosophy because we do such a wide variety of projects here at Cornerstone, which makes the job that much more fun! My favorite types of projects are logo design and layout design such as booklets and brochures.
When I’m not at work, I love all things sports, from coaching youth to watching the pros. Other than that, I enjoy traveling, exploring the outdoors, brewery hopping with my husband, and wasting an afternoon on a good book or movie.
My favorite color is green because of the different emotions it can convey… fun, calm, regal, exciting… green can do it all!

Coming from Corporate America, I needed a change, something new! Cornerstone offered that for me! And I think it is a good fit!
