A traditional 3rd generation family run printing firm based in Oxford for over 50 years
In 1962, Mr G.W.Parchment walked into his local bank and secured £28.00 to set up his new business, Parchments of Oxford. Now in its third generation, our family run business thrives on years of experience and a passion for what we do. Strong family values remain as much a part of the company today as they did back then.
The business began it's journey at Mr Parchments home, nestled between the famous Iffley Road and Cowley Road in the heart of Oxford and quickly grew, forming life long friendships with a wide range of customers. As the business grew we acquired the 'Printworks' building in Temple Cowley where we are still based to this day.
Parchments are proud to be still serving many customers who were around in these early days. We have formed strong relationships with not only individual members of the public but colleges, schools, hospitals and many businesses not only in Oxford and the surrounding area but countrywide.
We have seen lots of changes over the years and Parchments have not been slow to adapt and keep up with the latest technology such as fabric printing. We have the latest digital machines offering superb quality print as well as the traditional litho presses and finishing equipment. Along side this in our 'Printworks' we still have on show some museum pieces reminding us of how things were in those early days.
