5 “I Never Knew That!” Minneapolis Moments

Serving as a Minneapolis printing company since 1959, we at EBA Printing pride ourselves on being the hometown hero when you need a quality product at an affordable rate. Because we’ve been serving as a Minneapolis printing company for many years, there are a few little known facts about the city that we think every resident should know and that we feel truly represents a city we love:

1. Medical Procedures

The University of Minnesota in Minneapolis saw both the first bone marrow transplant and the first open heart surgery in the United States. Since then, the city has excelled in medicine and technology to become one of the top medical communities in the nation.

2. Minneapolis Skyway

Residents of Minneapolis can live, shop, eat and work without ever having to step foot outside, thanks to the Minneapolis Skyway system that links over 69 blocks or seven miles of the downtown Minneapolis area. However, residents may want to still consider stepping outside for fresh air every once in a while.

3. Metrodome

The HHH Metrodome, a climate-controlled facility, is the only establishment in the United States that has hosted a NCAA Final Four Basketball Championship, a World Serious and a Super Bowl. Other similar sporting events are hosted at different stadiums across the country, but none other can say they have seen all three events.

4. Notable Inventions

Minneapolis may arguably be known as the “invention convention” state due to the overwhelming number of creations that have successfully made way into peoples’ everyday lives. For example, roller blades, Tonka Toys, Green Giant vegetables, Totino’s frozen pizza, cream of what, and 3M’s cellophane tape and Post-It Notes were all originally developed and marketed in Minneapolis.

5. First Children’s Department in Library

It is said that the very first children’s department of books inside a library was in the Minneapolis Public Library. Here, librarians separated children’s and young adult books from the rest of the adult collection in December 1889.

At EBA Printing, we understand how important it is to find reputable Minneapolis printing companies to meet your needs. We take pride in the cities we represent, and we feel that everyone, no matter their current location, should be aware of the impact these cities have had on our everyday lives. If you are searching for a solid Minneapolis printing service, we can provide top quality products at rates that are sure to fit into any budget.
