The company was first established by Tom and Rhonda Peed as Peed Corp. in 1978 in Webster City, Iowa. In 1985, the headquarters were relocated to a 68-acre (280,000 m2) campus in the Highlands neighborhood of Lincoln, Nebraska, where they remain. In June 2000, Sandhills added a data center in Scottsdale, Arizona. In 2011, the company completed another data center on its Lincoln, Nebraska campus, [4] a LEED gold-rated building that houses the company's server farm and has three living roofs. [5]

The Lincoln campus expanded in 2015 with an additional IT facility. [6] In the same year, Sandhills worked with Goss International, [7] a company that supplies presses and finishing systems, to install a new press and saddlesticher to expand its printing operations. [8] In 2017, Sandhills announced the construction of an additional 42,000-square-foot facility [9] and also opened an additional office location [10] in Sidney, Nebraska.
