BRIEF HISTORY

1892

A newspaper publisher/editor, George F. Norton, and Thomas M. Hiltzheimer established the company that in time would become known as Winchester Printers. Back then, The George F. Norton Publishing Company offered commercial printing, embossing, engraving high class stationery, blank books, office art, and school supplies.

1929

In 1929, the company became known as Winchester Printers and Stationers, Inc.

1936

This year saw another name change, to Pifer Printing and Stationery.

1952

The company split into two entities: Pifer Printing + Pifer Office Supply.

1965

The company moved to its long-time former location at 116 North Braddock Street.

1970

Five years later, another name change brought the company to its present name, Winchester Printers, Inc., under the leadership of the Hottle family.

2000

As the graphics industry has evolved to its present hi-tech state, we have endeavored to upgrade our equipment and facilities to stay on the leading edge. In 2000, we built our current 25,000 square foot plant on five acres just east of Winchester, allowing space for updated equipment and future expansion.

2014

These are exciting times for Winchester Printers! Our logo has undergone a transformation, but our mission remains the same.

OWL FACT

Many owl species have asymmetrical ears. These are different sizes and different heights on their heads. This gives the birds superior hearing and the ability to pinpoint where prey is located, even if they can’t see it.

Our team cares about what you have to say. Calvin Coolidge said, “It takes a great man to be a good listener.” This trait helps us see beyond your immediate need and allows us to advise you in ways to gain more from your marketing investment.
