Your Local Professionals
Established in 1996
What started as a Mom and Pop desktop publishing company in 1994 with Dawn and Dan Byler working out of their home under the name Aurora Services, has grown to over 40 employees and multiple divisions of creative services at LaGwana. The People’s Exchange, an advertising magazine for the Amish communities in Northern Indiana and Southern Michigan, has served as a key pillar of the success of the company over the last 30 years. During that time our range of creative services and publications has grown and evolved to meet the creative needs of our neighbors near and far.
LaGwana Media is a broadcast service provided to the local area around LaGrange County. With ties to the Westview school district, LaGwana Media got its start by broadcasting at the Westview basketball games. It started as audio only and has grown into a livestreaming video service. Archives of the games are uploaded for viewers to enjoy throughout the season.
Striving for Innovation
We’re often asked, “Where will LaGwana be in 10 years?” The truth is, we plan to stay local, right here in Shipshewana, Indiana. We love our community and will do whatever we can to improve the lives of its citizens. We will continue to be a creative driving force that adds a splash of color to everyday life, consistently proving that we are the best choice for design, photography, print & signage, promotional products, publications, vehicle graphics, and websites.
We’re part of a community that values honesty, integrity, and hard work. We strive to reflect those values and build trust with our community members. If we can help our customers succeed by putting those values into practice, we call that a win-win.
We are a creative services company based on Christian principles. As such we will:
Grow and empower our employees so that they can develop both personally and professionally.
Serve our community by offering timely, high quality services and by supporting local programs.
Price our services to be fair to our customers, competitive in the marketplace, and make a reasonable net profit to allow us to perform our stated mission.
