Thomas Murdoch & Co.

Thomas Murdoch & Co., Manufacturing Stationers, Engravers, Lithographers, and Printers, 57, Buchanan Street.

    Prominent among all modem industries appears that of printing and engraving, and this is worthily represented in Glasgow by the well-known firm of Messrs. Thomas Murdoch & Co., manufacturing stationers, lithographers, and general printers. This prominent house was founded in 1857 by Mr. Thomas Murdoch, who is sole partner in the business.

    The premises occupied consist of portions of two floors of the building, 40 feet by 30 feet in extent, and one floor is occupied as offices and warehouse, and the other is devoted to the carrying on of the printing operations. Employment is constantly given to a considerable number of hands.

    The firm undertakes the execution of all descriptions of engraving, lithographing, printing, bookbinding, and paper ruling. They also engrave brass indexes for engineers. A good stock of all kinds of papers, manufactured stationery, and sundries is kept, including bronze and coloured tickets, parchment and eyeletted address labels. They have acquired a great reputation for the superior style and manner in which they execute their printing and lithographing.

    Mr. Murdoch has an intimate knowledge of all the details of his business, and is greatly respected in commercial circles and among the extensive and valuable connection whose support he enjoys.
