It's not really about us, it's all about you: fulfilling your tight deadlines, matching your corporate colours and not only matching but exceeding your expectations - but if you want to know how it all started then let us tell you...


Ivanhoe was founded in 1962 a golden age for printing. In a time when owning a printing press was almost a licence to print money the founding directors Fred Little and Fred Rodgers hit upon the idea of naming the company after a Walter Scott novel as his face appeared on the Scottish five pound note. Ivanhoe began trading above a small Musselburgh bar but quickly moved locations a few times before ending up at its present home in the Eskmills Industrial Estate.
