John Neave has been printing using traditional methods for over 67 years. In the early 1950’s, he started as a student printer at the Wolverhampton School of Art.

After leaving College his father helped him build a shed in the backyard of their house in Gordon Street, where on an antique letter press machine John entered what was in those days in Wolverhampton the very competitive business of Printing.

John has been typesetting and printing ever since, working from a shop he purchased in 1973. Over the years John has worked for many well-known local businesses and organisations, some of whom are long-gone.
