Some background history
T
he Gilmour family have been involved in design and printing for four generations since 1906, when James Gilmour, water colour artist by hobby and lithographer by trade, started a printing business, Gilmour & Lawrence Ltd, at 2 West Regent Street in Glasgow.
From then until World War II their main line of business was the publishing and production of books and fine art calendars, as well as general commercial printing.
After the War, when demand for fine art calendars diminished, the company concentrated on the other aspects of its business expertise, becoming well known for their attention to detail and the high quality of their printing work.
During the latter part of the 20th century they were increasingly involved in the production of quality financial and annual reports for prestigious investment companies.
Investment in the latest technologies to stay at the forefront of printing has always been important.
In the late 1980s the company was bought over by a larger concern for their electronic typesetting expertise and financial institution customer base.
Since 1994 Douglas Gilmour, great-grandson of James Gilmour has been carrying on the family tradition in Self-Publish-Books / Gilmour Print.
