The story of Shweiki\'s publication printing history goes back to 1984. At the time, while a student at the University of Texas at Austin, Gal Shweiki had an idea to create a guide book for students that listed all the best places to hang out. This idea led to The Student Guide to Austin. This was Shweiki\'s entry into the publishing field. In 1988, realizing the need for a monthly entertainment publication for the students, Shweiki began publishing Study Breaks magazine.
As the magazine grew, Shweiki and his staff began working with other publishers, helping with design and pre-press solutions. This led to the purchase of the first web press. Since then Shweiki Media has grown to be a full service printing company, and a prime resource for publication publishers.
