About Us

In the Beginning

Webster Printing Company and Smith Print Inc. join forces!

Our Humble Beginnings...

 

Smith Print was founded in 1938 by Lloyd Smith on his family’s farm in Weymouth Massachusetts. Lloyd built the business producing printing for local area businesses. Lloyd was offered a minor-league contract from the Boston Red Sox as a catcher, but he felt his future was better served in the printing business. The business closed for a few years during World War II while Lloyd served in the Coast Guard.

After his service, he re-opened the business and the business grew. It was relocated from the family farm to Weymouth’s Jackson Square, where the business transitioned from letterpress printing to offset lithography. In 1979, a new 27,000 square foot plant was built in Norwell, Massachusetts. Son, Peter Smith is still involved in the business today.

Webster Printing was founded in 1956 by Brad and Fred Smith. Located in the Hanson Massachusetts area, Webster was one of the first printing companies on the South Shore to offer 40” four color, offset printing. In 1996, Ernie Foster and a dedicated group of customer centric professionals evolved the company into a full service, marketing services provider and was named one of Boston’s Top Twenty Printers in 2007!

Webster One Source has enveloped the combined history and dedicated staffs into a dynamic, state-of-the-art, direct manufacturing facility servicing the Greater Boston area. While our history and equipment is impressive, it is our employees, who provide superior customer service, that truly make the real difference.
