History


100th Anniversary
One Man Business

1916

Gibson Printing opened as a one-man operation run out of a basement, owned & operated by Mr. Percy Gibson.

Gibson Printing, 1927

1927

Gibson Printing became Gibson Printing Co. Ltd. and moved to a store front on Queen Street near Broadview Avenue in Toronto. Shortly after they became an early adopter of four colour process printing which was done on a letterpress.

Vintage Printing Press

1950s

In the early 1950’s Gibson Printing moved to a larger location on Danforth Avenue near Coxwell. It was also at this time the Gibson Printing began to offer offset printing as an option to its clients. Gibson Printing was then purchased by Mr. Richard D. Wigmore Senior who has worked for Mr. Gibson since after WW2.

1980

Gibson printing began computerization of the plant by buying a computer for accounting. No one was producing accounting software in those early days, so they hired a programmer to create one for them.

1994

Due to continued growth, Gibson Printing moved to a larger location on Markham Road north of Finch. This location would house their new five colour press with aqueous coating capabilities and expansion of the prepress department. Gibson Printing has remained a Wigmore family business & is now owned by Mrs. Linda Wigmore & operated by Kim Robertson her daughter.

2005

To better serve their clients Gibson was moved into the Ravenshoe Group building (parent company). This was to a newer more centrally located facility on Bentley Street in Markham. This meant that Gibson Printing had easy access to Ravenshoe’s artists, photography & website production & gave Ravenshoe access to print expertise.

2010

Gibson Printing moved to their new 40,000 sq ft. state of the art facility with much larger warehousing capabilities and room for expansion for digital presses. Together both companies provide their respective clients with a 1 stop solution to all their sales & marketing needs.
